Through in-vehicle and back-office technologies, you’re able to make use of real-time data to make better decisions, close the gaps in the business and improve your bottom line.

 

 

2018 Telematics Benchmark Report

Australian Transport Edition

Driver fatigue has been a hot topic in Australia over the last decade and rightly so. Almost half of long-distance truck drivers said they had “nodded off” while driving at least once in a 12-month period, according to an Australian survey. One in five reported a “dangerous” fatigue-related event, unintentionally crossed lanes or had a near miss during their last trip. 

Interestingly, for the second year in a row, driver fatigue is the top compliance concern for fleet management professionals; however, EWD adoption remains low. This is despite 42 per cent of survey respondents saying their companies plan to invest in new technologies and systems in 2018. There appears to be a disconnect between how a telematics solution can help ease some of the top business concerns and whether or not companies would see a significant enough return on investment to justify the cost.
