As the Canadian ELD Mandate rollout approaches on schedule for June 12, 2021, Fleet Complete’s BigRoad is getting ready for third-party certification, having submitted its solution to FP Innovations.
TORONTO, ON | APR 29, 2021
On the heels of the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate roll out in the U.S. back in 2018, the Canadian ELD Mandate fast-follows, but with a new twist – a rigorous third-party certification process to ensure that vendors do not sell non-compliant, defective, or incomplete Hours of Service (HOS) solutions to commercial drivers and carriers.
In line with the certification process, Fleet Complete completed engineering work for all technical requirements in its current BigRoad ELD solution and submitted it for certification to support full compliance with the ‘Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service Regulations -SOR/2005-313’, set to come into effect in Canada on June 12, 2021.
This means that commercial vehicle operators using BigRoad ELD will be compliant with HOS requirements in both Canada and the U.S., where the BigRoad solution has been in wide commercial use since 2018.
Nearly 100,000 drivers and fleets in North America have chosen BigRoad as their ELD compliance partner already. BigRoad’s ELD is a full-stack solution: a plug-and-play device features HOS alerts, DVIR, DOT Inspection Mode, fuel tracking for IFTA, and a free digital load-matching platform.
