Preparing your fleet for the Canadian ELD Mandate
The June 2021 deadline is approaching fast, and carriers need to get ready. How should you prepare to effectively comply with the Canadian ELD rules?
James Menzies, editor at Today’s Trucking, will guide you through this 45-minute webinar with his two guests. Derek Gaston, Supervisor of truck operations at CN, will share his experience in implementing an ELD solution on a 1,000-truck fleet in less than a month. He will explain how CN has succeeded in navigating the change curve and choosing a technology that is there to serve its team of drivers, dispatchers and managers.
Following a recap on the Canadian ELD timeline and the main differences between US and Canadian ELD rules, Jean-Sebastien Bouchard, Vice-President Sales at ISAAC will provide some tips on how an efficient ELD solution can simplify your operations, save time for your drivers and turn the system “you had to implement” into one you’re glad you did.
