The Shipper Name and Commodity is now provided to the FMCSA in the ELD transfer if the Document Number is not provided.

HOS updates

Notifications regarding minimum rest requirements for Canadian HOS There is now a pop-up when the driver tries to leave Sleeper Berth or Off-Duty status without completing the minimum break time.

HOS-related rules additions (Feature Preview) Users with “Feature preview” enabled under their settings will be able to use new rules under the Compliance category:

  • Yard Move Exemption (also called UPS Exemption): prevents users from being kicked out of Yard Move when doing an ignition cycle. Users will still be kicked out of Yard Move if they go over 20 mph or leave a specified zone.

SDK updates

  • The device property ActiveTo will automatically be set to max date (2050-01-01) to denote that it is active. To account for differences in Client machine time vs Server machine time, users are allowed to set the value of ActiveTo to a max window of 24 hours in the future (i.e. Current Time 24 hours). This is considered to be historical/archived.
