ELD installation for your fleet of vehicles: soon mandatory!
May 25, 2022
Do you own a business with heavy vehicles? As of April 30th, 2023, your fleet must be equipped with electronic logging devices (ELDs).
What is an ELD? It is a device that automatically records your vehicles’ time on the road, including drivers’ hours of service, location, mileage and real-time engine data. This information is essential for fleet inspections.
For example, starting next year, Canadian truckers must record their hours of work and rest in accordance with the Heavy Vehicle Operators Hours of Service and Rest Regulations, which an ELD can easily do for them. It is estimated that approximately 150,000 trucks in Canada are used for commercial purposes. They will have to be equipped with such a device, if they have not already done so.
Please refer to this document for specific regulatory requirements. These requirements vary if your transportation operations are below or above the 60th parallel. This line represents the southern border of the Canadian territories of Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
