Transport Canada Announcement on new ELD Requirements
The Canadian government has just announced a plan mandating the use of electronic logging devices to replace paper logbooks for federally regulated commercial trucks and busses. The new requirement will take effect on June 12, 2021 and will look very similar to recent changes adopted by the United Stated Department of Transportation regarding daily logging requirements and hours of service regulations. For more information on how this new rule will impact Canadian sod haulers, please consult the news release below from Transport Canada. This article contains a brief summary of the announcement as well as helpful links to electronic logging devices and hours of service regulations. TPI will continue to monitor these new regulations and update Canadian turfgrass producers as these news laws come into effect. Please consult the two articles below for more information on this topic and reach out to TPI with questions, comments, or concerns.
