Freight Transportation Exemption
Exemption to allow relief from the requirements established under the Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service Regulations
As expected, Transport Canada has approved an essential Hours of Service (HOS) ‘Freight Transportation Exemption.’
This Exemption has similarities to the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issuance of their March 13th, 2020 national Emergency Declaration for Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMVs) delivering relief in response to the COVID-19 Outbreak.
The purpose of this Blog is to highlight the similarities and differences that have been adopted by Canada Transport.
