BURLINGTON, Ont. — PeopleNet Canada has announced its eDriver Logs application will comply with the new Hours-of-Service rules for professional truck drivers in Canada. PeopleNet eDriver Logs is designed to make it easy for fleets and drivers to observe the complicated new rules that take effect on Jan. 1. eDriver Logs runs on the g3 Onboard Computing System from PeopleNet, a leading provider of intelligent onboard communications and solutions in North America.
PeopleNet eDriver Logs is designed to automatically record driver Hours-of-Service with minimum input from the driver and displays logs on demand for enforcement personnel. eDriver Logs is designed to make handling the complex calculations required for the new HoS much easier.
“The new Hours-of-Service regulations contain more than 14,000 words in 101 sections. It is a daunting training challenge for fleets and a steep learning curve for drivers,” said Jamie Williams, president of PeopleNet Canada. “PeopleNet eDriver Logs relieves the fleet of an enormous training and administration headache. It also frees the driver to concentrate on the road ahead.”
A driver can display current log information on the g3 computer when necessary, making a diver’s log viewable for inspectors, fleet dispatchers and other fleet manager on a Web site. The application is designed for drivers to spend less time filling out paper logbooks, resulting in fewer violations and the threat of regulatory fines.
