FMCSA: 5 changes to the HOS rule

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) unveiled a proposal on August 14 to revise its hours of service (HOS) regulations for commercial motor vehicle drivers. The FMCSA estimates its proposal would provide $274 million in savings over 10 years for the U.S. economy and American consumers in reduced compliance costs and increased flexibility and efficiencies for motor carriers. Based on numerous requests from industry stakeholders for more flexible HOS conditions and over 5,200 public comments starting in August 2018, the FMCSA announced the following five proposed revisions to the existing rule:   Require drivers to take a break for at...

Exempt from the Canadian ELD Mandate? Here’s 5 reasons to comply anyways

With the Canadian Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate taking effect in less than two years, details are beginning to surface around who’s going to be affected — and who’s not. Until adopted by any one or more of the 10 Canadian Provinces, Canada’s ELD mandate only applies to federally-regulated carriers that operate across provincial boundaries of Canada and into the U.S., not to those who operate solely within Canada’s ten individual provinces. However, the Canadian Trucking Alliance and its president, Stephen Laskowski, are spearheading conversations urging ELD-exempt provincial leaders to adopt the technology and achieve a regulated system of logging...

Final Canadian ELD Mandate Rules Announced

The final Canadian electronic logging device (ELD) Mandate was announced today by Canadian Transport Minister Marc Garneau. As expected, the rules state that ELD solution providers must obtain certification from a third-party to ensure their solutions meet the necessarily-complex technical standards set forth by Transport Canada. After receiving feedback from various stakeholders (e.g., ELD providers, associations and carriers), Transport Canada worked to better harmonize the Canadian ELD Mandate with the ELD Mandate passed in the United States. This has allowed Transport Canada to accelerate the implementation of the Canadian ELD Mandate from the four years initially proposed in Gazette I...

10 Steps to ELD Migration Success

It has almost been a year since the first electronic logging device (ELD) Mandate deadline passed. Many carriers that were able to take advantage of the grandfather clause opted to use automatic onboard recording devices (AOBRDs) and transition to ELDs by the second deadline — December 16, 2019. If it seems like no time has passed since last year’s deadline, keep in mind how much needs to be done in the next year. As a refresher, the ELD Mandate grandfather clause states that a motor carrier that installs and requires a driver to use an AOBRD in accordance with §...

Canadian ELD Mandate Updates

Updated October 16, 2018 The final Canadian ELD Mandate rule is expected to release this year or in the first quarter of 2019 (best guesses). While the full information is still not available, fleets can still educate themselves to prepare. A lot of the proposed rule is expected to be similar to the U.S. ELD Mandate — great news for the many Canadian carriers whose business involves cross-border transit and already need to comply with the U.S. mandate for that reason. Transport Canada published a proposed rule in the Canada Gazette last December, the same time the U.S. ELD Mandate...
