ELD for Trucks for Sale in Canada

Transport Canada has mandated that most commercial drivers who are required to maintain records of duty status must do so through an electronic logging device come January 1, 2023. These devices help monitor drivers’ time on the road to meet hours of service compliance. HOS247 is an elog vendor with years of experience providing truckers in the U.S. and Canada with high quality devices and top-rated customer support.

ELD Functions

The data captured by elogs includes time, date, location, motor carrier, kilometers driven, engine hours, and driver’s duty status. The driver’s behavior while driving, such as acceleration, idling, and unnecessary braking, is also recorded, which can be helpful for fleet owners in the event of accidents. These devices also present truck and engine diagnostic codes that help monitor the truck’s operations and safety. Fleet managers and owners can track the drivers and their trucks with GPS features. They can examine the actual distance covered, which is vital when presenting IFTA tax reports and reconciliations.

Flexible plans whether you have 1 or 500 vehicles

An elog must have two accounts: one for the carrier and one for the driver, which must be separated. This also applies to independent operators and independent carriers. The back-end account is accessible to the fleet manager while the driver administers the in-cab account. ELDs can be run on a smartphone or any other wireless device that meets the necessary technical specifications.

Every ELD for trucks for sale in Canada must meet these requirements and be certified by a third party accreditation body approved by Transport Canada.

  2. Vehicles operating under a specific permit.
  3. Carriers that have been issued a statutory exemption under the Motor Vehicle Transport Act.
  4. Vehicles rented for fewer than 30 days.
