On December 18, 2017, the ELD mandate will be enforced. That’s less than three months from now.
Because the ELD mandate has survived an onslaught of legal attacks over the previous months, representatives from the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) strongly believe that its implementation deadline is pretty much final.
According to the Executive Director of the CVSA, Collin Mooney:
“It’s almost negligible at this point that will be delayed.”
Law enforcers and government agencies are expecting carriers and owner-operators to have already started complying with the ELD mandate and to be in the final stages of…

The panel was composed of Jerry Harris (Vice President of Vans and Dedicated Operations of Gypsum Express), Lamar Quinn (Sales Representative and General Manager from R.E. Garrison Trucking), and Paul Davis (Information Technology Manager of Best Logistics Group)

After all, there…

Some of the questions that we frequently get from truckers and carriers revolve around:
The Canadian Trucking Alliance’s senior vice president for policy, Geoff Wood, recently gave a presentation in a trucking expo and conference about a Canadian version of the ELD mandate that is soon to be approved.
With six long years poured into developing the mandate’s technical standards, Wood believes that it’s only a matter of time before the mandate’s draft would be approved by the CCMTA (Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators).
