According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, trucks carried over $336 billion worth of freight between the United States and Canada in 2017. These shipments accounted for nearly 60% of the total value of goods transported between the two countries.
Fleets who regularly cross the Canada-United States border face unique challenges. Long lines of communication, customs delays, and the regulatory requirements of two countries all add complexity to fleet operations.
Today, we are excited to introduce new features that help improve fleet safety, increase operational efficiency, and simplify compliance no matter which side of the border your fleet is on:
Metric system support: Whether you are evaluating metrics for safety, fuel efficiency, or route performance, you now have the option to view key reports in the unit of your choice (metric or Imperial).
Simplified cross-border compliance: Samsara automatically applies the correct set of hours of service (HoS) rules when drivers cross the Canada-US border. No matter which side of the border that your fleet is on, you can be confident that you are compliant with the appropriate regulations.
