The Canadian Trucking Alliance is “strongly encouraging” federally regulated carriers currently not operating electronic logging devices to meet with vendors and select their preferred system ahead of June 12, the date they will be enforced.
The CTA recommends carries “complete their due diligence on various operating systems” so that once these systems are certified, carriers can make informed decisions in a timely manner for their onboarding process, CTA officials said in a press release.
The third-party system to certify ELD devices for the Canadian market is entering high gear with over a dozen vendors engaged in various stages of the certification process. Some vendors in the process have even submitted multiple devices for certification, guaranteeing carriers operating in Canada have a plethora of certified devices to select from as the mandate approaches, CTA officials said.
On April 1, CTA will be holding a free webinar with ELD vendors to help assist carriers with questions. For more details on how to register for the webinar, hosted on Microsoft Teams, click here.
The Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) has established a committee to develop an enforcement strategy to address the Canadian government’s electronic logging device mandate that will be federally regulated this June.
In February, the Canadian Trucking Alliance submitted a 12-month progressive enforcement strategy to CCMTA that would allow the enforcement community to deal with carriers operating paper logs and ELDs as the mandate takes shape starting in June, CTA President Stephen Laskowski said.
