From June 12, 2021 all Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMVs) operating in Canada will be subject to the Commercial Vehicle Hours of Service Regulations for electronic logging devices1. Furthermore, any ELD provider operating in Canada must be certified by an accredited 3rd party authority.
Our HOS WorkPlan application operates under the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCTMA) AOBRD ruleset for Canada and is fully compliant today with those standards. For Canada/US transborder customers, our platform operates under the US ELD ruleset while driving in the US and the Canadian AOBRD ruleset when in Canada.
For Canadian customers
For Canadian customers who operate only in Canada, the WorkPlan application will display an AOBRD banner to indicate to the driver that they are operating in AOBRD mode.
For Canada/US transborder customers
For Canada/US transborder customers, the AOBRD indicator will not display, since the application is operating under US ELD ruleset, which is a superset of the AOBRD standards for Canada. Transborder customers also have access to Inspector Mode to support the US ELD Mandate. Inspector mode should not be used in Canada at this time. Inspector mode for Canada will be implemented along with other required features to support the Canadian ELD mandate.
Upcoming Canadian ELD Mandate for 2021
Verizon Connect is committed to providing a certified Canadian ELD compliant solution and will do so in advance of next year’s deadline.
In the meantime, if you have any additional questions, please reach out to your Verizon Connect Customer Success Manager.
