USA & CANADA ELD RULES ARE HERE…
USA – The FMCSA’s final ELD rule was published in December 2015. Considering that today the mandate applies to over three million drivers on the road, it’s important that the trucking industry as a whole is up-to-speed on its ELD facts.
By December 2017, all CDL drivers required to keep a Record of Duty Status (RODS) must use an ELD to document their compliance with HOS rules. The new ELD rule adds certain technical and performance specifications that define exactly what the device must feature to enable professional truck drivers and commercial motor carriers to easily track Hours of Service (HOS) compliance.
Canada – On April 11, 2019 the CCMTA published the formal Canadian ELD rule. ELD Mandate in Canada comes into effect on June 12, 2021. The Canadian ELD standard is very similar to the USA based FMCSA. The biggest difference is third party certification which ensures all ELD providers are compliant, their service works and meets all criteria.
This resource was put together to offer informational support on obtaining and deploying the ELD solution on Astreon platform.

HOW IT WORKS
ELD by Astreon is based on a smartphone app which connects to the Bluetooth-enabled CANbus reader or a GPS device and accepts RPM, odometer, VIN and other data directly from the truck on-board computer.
The ELD app permanently displays the remaining time of “on-duty” and “driving” status, so that drivers can always be in full control and ensure compliance. Drivers can quickly generate electronic logbook right on the mobile device and display in case of a roadside inspection.
Office workers who Manage compliance can then get access to the HOS web app using Astreon and monitor all drivers’ actual statuses. Easily allowing the back office to clearly see if anybody is out of compliance or close to violating the rules and take appropriate measures.
Compatible with any internet connected Android or iOS mobile device, including tablets.

IFTA reporting software provides an opportunity to build reports for required jurisdictions and then export it into the pdf file. Reporting gets automatically enabled when a driver passes state lines. Odometer values from the vehicle computer provide mileage data which then gets divided into IFTA miles and non-IFTA. Using the ELD app the driver notes where he added fuel to the tank, and Apollo ELD does the rest.
