Teletrac Navman has launched the new VT102, a TCA Type-Approved telematics device powered by AI-enabled fleet management software to power high-level insights and data for transport operators.
The VT102 provides level 1, 2 and 3 assurance for use in Road Infrastructure Management (RIM), Telematics Monitoring Application (TMA) and Intelligent Access Programs (IAP), allowing for greater access and information of road networks throughout Australia.
Teletrac Navman says the new device adds to its suite of telematics solutions, allowing operators to choose the right solution for their needs and circumstances, especially for transport businesses looking to improve access and increase payload.
“The new type-approved telematics device from Teletrac Navman supports the growing diversity of productivity and safety schemes being introduced through the National Telematics Framework,” said TCA executive general manager Stuart Ballingall.
“The V102 telematics device satisfies the highest level of performance requirements demanded by road managers and regulators. Having been type-approved at Level 3 assurance, the device can be used for regulatory schemes where the need for strong accuracy, reliability and security outcomes are demanded by stakeholders.”
When paired with Teletrac Navman’s TN360 software, the VT102 offers transport customers an AI-powered fleet management solution, helping to ensure drivers and vehicles are operating safer and more efficiently through high-definition GPS tracking, real-time vehicle updates and customisable data and analytics.
“Our customers are realising the productivity benefits of being part of the RIM, TMA and IAP access programs. Teletrac Navman has more than 15 years’ experience in the field, and we are dedicated to the ongoing development of technology which helps operators meet the required standards to enrol in these programs and reap the significant benefits they offer,” added Andrew Rossington, chief product officer at Teletrac Navman.
Teletrac Navman says that telematics has been the cornerstone of breaking down performance barriers within the transport industry and type approved telematics devices, coupled with enrolment in regulatory access programs, help operators like SRH Milk Haulage save time and costs.
Compliance manager at SRH Milk Haulage, Blair Harvey, explained, “We can cart 3400 litres extra per load. This means we’re now getting 12 loads done in 11 loads. That might not sound like much, but it makes a huge difference and now we’re up to nearly 41,500 litres per load.”
Adam Hornby, managing director at Hornby Transport echoes the benefits. “On top of ensuring vehicles are correctly maintained and loaded, and that drivers aren’t driving too long, we’re able to run our fleet more efficiently. This goes hand in hand with productivity, as we’re able to react quickly to changing customer requirements, and put our drivers and vehicles on the safest, most efficient route.”
The VT102 will be available from January 24, 2022.
