VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LiteLink Technologies Inc. (“LiteLink”) (CSE:LLT)(FRA:C0B:FF)(OTC:LLNKF), a key player in logistics platforms and payment solutions, is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with J.J. Keller & Associates Inc. (“J.J. Keller”), the most respected name in safety and regulation compliance, to gain access to the J. J. Keller® Encompass® Fleet Management System and promote Electronic Logging Devices (“ELDs”) to carriers in Canada.
The agreement will give LiteLink access to data from J. J. Keller’s Encompass® ELDs to provide 1SHIFT Logistics clients with up-to-date information from carriers to augment the 1SHIFT mobile app. The deal also offers LiteLink the opportunity to refer new customers to Encompass® ELDs.
Amendments to the Canadian ELD mandate are expected to finalize this summer, requiring all carriers to equip their trucks with ELDs. According to the Canadian Department of Transport, roughly 64,000 commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) will be affected by the proposed amendments.
“As a Canadian publicly traded company, LiteLink has an opportunity to introduce J.J. Keller ELDs to carriers across the country. The first-to-market ELD aggregate providers in Canada will have a foot ahead in capturing a significant portion of the Canadian market,” says LiteLink CEO Ashik Karim. “We’re in a very unique situation where ELD providers are lining up to provide their hardware for our Canadian-based logistics system to grow their market share in technology across Canada. This agreement with J.J. Keller gives LiteLink the ability to introduce one of the best ELDs to carriers in Canada in preparation for the upcoming mandate.”
LiteLink will be onboarding ELDs that are active in Canada and the US into its marketplace initially. Moving forward, LiteLink plans to onboard an additional 50 through 2019 in preparation for the Canadian ELD mandate.
About Electronic Logging Devices
An ELD is a physical electronic hardware component that is attached to commercial trucks to record speed, location, and record driving hours while the engine is in use. The primary purpose of ELD is compliance and safety, two key mandates that align with LiteLink’s value statement.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced the final ELD rule in December 2015 requiring all electronic logging devices for all trucks model-year 2000 or newer engaged in interstate commerce across the USA.
