Canada certifies Platform Science ELD technology
Canada has added another US electronic logging device to its registry.
Platform Science’s technology has been certified for use in Canada, which has required all fleets operating in the country to be equipped with a certified ELD by June 12.
Canada’s Department of Transport has finalized a mandate to require the use of ELDs in 2019 with a date set for fleets to replace paper logs by June 12, 2021. The Department of Transport has extended this date to June 2022 when no device has been added to the registry by the 2021 deadline.
There are now 11 certified suppliers on the register.
“Platform Science’s comprehensive ELD solution will help make Canada’s roads safer by equipping fleets with technology that makes it easy and quick to track and manage driver hours,” said Hieu Bui, VP Product , Platform Science. “With certification now in Canada, Platform Science’s ELD enables drivers on either side of the border to maintain compliance and improve their driving experience.
Platform Science’s ELD enables fleets to support their driver’s Hours of Service (HOS) compliance, whether the driver is a dedicated Canadian, US, or cross-border driver. The technology notifies drivers under US and Canadian HOS rules when they reach their on-duty driving thresholds.
