For full compliance with the Canadian ELD mandate, our BigRoad ELD solution contains updated features available starting Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021. Covering all new requirements, the new features include:
Available for both US and Canadian fleets, this new feature allows 2 drivers to be connected to the same truck and operate as team drivers. Additional features include switching trucks, switching roles, and re-assigning drive time between team members while being compliant on the road to avoid violations/citations and increase fleet productivity.
BigRoad now supports Canadian ELD split sleeper berth rules for single and team drivers for Canada North of 60 (60°N) and South of 60 (60°S) cycles. Drivers can benefit from splitting off-duty time using the sleeper berth rule on all Canadian federal cycles.
BigRoad now supports Canadian ELD off-duty deferral requirements. This new feature allows drivers to defer up to 2 hours of off-duty time to the next day, so those 2 hours can be utilized for driving on the current day. This adds to driver and fleet productivity while keeping driver logs compliant as per the Canadian ELD regulations.
BigRoad will support all Canadian Federal Cycle and Jurisdiction changes. For fleets operating in Canada or across the border, the BigRoad app allows you to switch between US and Canadian cycles while calculating drive/on-duty and off-duty time accurately to keep you compliant on the road.
We are now fully compliant with Canadian Personal Use and Yard Move regulations. This includes supporting the daily personal use limit of 75 kms and a Yard Move vehicle speed limit of 32 km/h.
BigRoad complies with the Canadian ELD output file and roadside inspection requirements. Drivers will have complete support when stopped at a roadside inspection or asked to transfer RODS to Transport Canada safety officials.
