Transitioning to Electronic Logging Devices – Part 2
Part 2 of BCTA’s “Transitioning to Electronic Logging Devices and Hours of Service Supporting Documents Final Rule” workshop focuses on tips for preparing drivers and staff and working with shippers, who will need to understand the implications of the rule on their own operations and practices.
The ELD final rule became effective February 16, 2016 with phased-in compliance deadlines starting December 2017. BCTA members are encouraged to begin researching requirements, making purchasing decisions, and planning and implementing new processes for using the technology and integrating it with current operational practices and systems.
Carriers operating solely in Canada, especially those using paper logs can also use this time to do their research and speak with vendors and others already using the technology. Canadian ELD regulations are coming and will be very similar to the US rule.
