Smartphones Offering Innovative Compliance with Electronic Logging Device Requirements

New electronic time logging rules are coming into force in the USA for the trucking industry. As many Canadian vehicles cross the border, Canada is already forming similar mandates. The Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) stated:
The U.S. is expected to put an ELD mandate at some point in 2016, while in Canada the Canadian Trucking Alliance…has been working with the Canadian government and the provinces to focus efforts leading to a similar proposal in Canada while meanwhile addressing all the technical issues with manufacturers and legislative officials with such a proposal. [1]
This requirement is expected to decrease citations for hours of service violations by 40-75%. [2] Electronic tracking is more accurate, more difficult to falsify, and records may be viewed immediately.
BC Trucking noted a 2006 Transport Canada report stating: [3]
• ELD technology was readily available;
• paper log falsification is relatively high;
• ELDs can contribute to road safety;
• ELDs represent an improvement over paper log books;
• privacy concerns can be managed; and
• ELDs will level the playing field.
However, there are fears that ELD may be expensive and difficult to implement.
As these changes are also occurring in the USA, mobile device app development has begun to tackle this problem. Recently the CTA cited an article from the Commercial Carrier Journal regarding Apps like BigRoad, which track and record driver’s hours and location. [4,5]
As most people already have mobile devices, this offers a neat and cost effective solution to meet the new requirements.
