  • Drivers can now use Yard Move while they are in Canada.
  • Drivers are now allowed to accept an Unassigned Driving Event as Personal Conveyance or Yard Move if they have been enabled to use them in the company settings.

  • A new feature allows the carrier to enable the 16-hour Exception from the host at a driver level. If either the fleet 16-hour setting or the driver 16-hour setting denies access to the driver, the 16-hour option is not displayed on the Exceptions screen.

  • The instruction to go to paper logs has been removed for some sensor failures. 
  • A more intuitive alert for the Data diagnostic now includes what driver action is required.
