Transport Canada ELD and Hours of Service Mandate – June 12, 2021

As Canada embarks on the Transport Canada mandate for Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) in all Commercial Vehicles, all transportation providers, big or small, are busy preparing fleets, drivers, and owners for the long awaited ELD mandate.

Top 3 important facts to know about the ELD mandate:

  • The ELD mandate will not change the Hours-of-Service rules already in place. It will simply require operators to switch from paper logbooks to Electronic Logging Devices.
  • Some commercial drivers are exempt if they fall under a short haul exemption and do not drive further than 160 km of their home terminal or operate a vehicle that was manufactured before the year 2000.
  • The main key benefit of implementing ELD is the reduction in driver fatigue and improved safety on our highways.

With close to 200,000 commercial vehicles on Canadian roads at any one given time, the impact of ELD and Hours of Service is of the utmost importance and safety of everyone who travels on our roads.

FMi Logistics supports this initiative by ensuring that all partner carriers are compliant with this mandate by June 12, 2022, the date set by the Federal Government for hard enforcement.  While the ELD mandate is effective June 12, 2021, there will be a year long progressive enforcement period that will provide carriers a year to be compliant before penalties will be applied.

The following article provides additional detailed information on the ELD mandate and the features and benefits of this program.
