What is the ELD mandate?

The ELD Mandate has been in effect since December 18, 2017, in the United States and since January 1st, 2023, in Canada. The mandate requires all commercial motor vehicles (CMV) to have an electronic logging device (ELD) on board to comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and Transport Canada regulations. ELDs have replaced all existing paper logs used to record Hours of Service (HOS).


What is DVIR?

As specified by the Commercial Vehicle Driver’s Hours of Service Regulations, a Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) needs to be completed and submitted by drivers on a daily basis for each vehicle they operate. The purpose of the report is to check the state of several aspects of the vehicle and its equipment – including brakes, couplings, lights and tires, and indicate safety defects or mechanical problems. It pushes the driver to inspect his vehicle carefully before and and after every trip. The pre-trip inspection consists of reviewing the last DVIR completed on the vehicle and repairing any defects prior to starting a new shift.


What is IFTA?

When transporting goods or passengers across several states, motor carriers must comply with the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA). This agreement between the Canadian provinces and 48 American states facilitates the way transportation companies report and pay fuel taxes. As a result of IFTA, carriers just need to file a single quarterly fuel tax report to their base jurisdiction even though they have traveled in other IFTA jurisdictions. Fuel taxes are then redistributed between states depending on where the fuel was consumed. Concretely, if truck drivers pay fuel tax at the pump in a state but burn it in another state, fuel tax equalization between states must ensue.

Motor carriers are required to pay more tax in the state where they use more fuel. The IFTA report determines which states owe you a refund and which states should be paid tax. That is why it is important for truck drivers to retain all of their fuel receipts and trip sheets, so they can prove when / where / how much fuel they purchased and when / where they used it. However, with our on-board fuel tracking device, drivers no longer need to worry about these details. Fuel tax reports are automatically generated within the platform, relieving drivers of the hassle of completing fuel consumption-related files.
