Second Trimble device certified in Canada
A second solution from Trimble Transportation – its PeopleNet Connected Gateway device, when paired with its eDriver Logs ELD – has now been certified as compliant with the Canadian ELD mandate.
Trimble’s PeopleNet Mobile Gateway device was certified in October, making Trimble the first major telematics provider certified to comply with the mandate, and one of the first six certified providers overall.
“While these two devices represent the vast majority of our user base, we are focused on expanding on our certification to include additional hardware options as well,” said senior product manager Frank Stowers.“Our aim is to help provide customers with flexibility in selecting the right devices for their specific business needs while being confident in knowing that they are also choosing a compliant solution.”
