ALLENTOWN, Pa. — Continental, a global supplier of systems, components and tires to automobile and truck manufacturers, and the manufacturer of VDO RoadLog ELD said Tuesday that the latest versions of the company’s VDO RoadLog ELD and RoadLog Office fleet management and reporting software are fully compliant with Transport Canada Regulations for Hours of Service tracking and reporting.
The latest release of RoadLog ELD software provides all of the features required by Transport of Canada regulations including Canada HOS North and South of 60N with printout, Canada recap, automatic US-Canada border crossing recognition with automatic HOS change (with manual override), and Canada DVIR pre-trip/post-trip recording with printout, plus the Canada HOS ferries exemption, oil field permits, and daily off-duty deferral, according to Joe McCarthy, Continental’s VDO Roadlog marketing manager.
“Compliance with Transport of Canada ELD regulations has been a challenge for both ELD manufacturers and drivers,” McCarthy said. “We’re happy to say that we now offer a solution that solves all the issues on both sides of the border.”
In addition to providing compliance with Canadian regulations, VDO RoadLog solves many of the problems that drivers and fleets have experienced with “bring your own device” solutions, McCarthy said.
“VDO RoadLog ELD is a dedicated device, hardwired to the vehicle, and this eliminates the possibility of Bluetooth connectivity issues seen with many smartphone and tablet based solutions,” he said. “With RoadLog, drivers don’t need to use their personal data plan for HOS tracking or worry about having their phone tied up with maintaining compliance. Roaming charges, data overages, and hidden fees simply are not a factor with RoadLog.”
VDO RoadLog ELD works with the online tool, RoadLog Office, to provide complete reporting and fleet maintenance capabilities.
McCarthy said VDO RoadLog was one of the first stand-alone ELDs offered in North America, providing an affordable, simple, and secure solution for mandate compliance and reporting. VDO RoadLog ELD is offered without monthly fees for basic services. For owner operators and fleets who want advanced features, VDO RoadLog ELD Plus adds cellular connectivity for text-based messaging, driver monitoring, remote load and trip management, and enhanced fleet management capabilities for an affordable monthly fee per vehicle.
