Second draft on required ELD functions and design released


TORONTO, Ont. – A second draft outlining how electronic logging devices (ELDs) must function and be designed by manufacturers has been released by the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA).

The Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) provide input to the CCMTA ELD Technical Working Group for the original draft, which has been working on the technical standard since the US implemented its own ELD mandate last year and was followed by an announcement by Transport Canada that it intended to apply its own mandate for truck drivers currently required to maintain logbooks.

The CCMTA will be accepting comments from industry and suppliers on the new draft standard over the course of the summer, and the CTA said it would re-establish its ELD Carrier Working Group and again be working with Team Canada Elite and PDC members to gather input.

In an effort to help management teams, drivers and shippers understand the issues around the ELD transition, the CTA has created a PDF infographic in English and French with a whiteboard animation video.

CTA members can contact operations&safety@cantruck.ca if they have questions or concerns on ELD initiatives.

    Just a reminder that truck drivers are humans, You can’t just program them and make them run like a computer. All these regulations have been destroying the industry and ELD is only going to make it worst.

      Bo you are so right. The rules for “Professional” drivers is ridiculous, although brought on by a few bad people.the up side they give jobs to more “DOT” and CUPE members.
