At its core, a GPS fleet and compliance management solution – also referred to as a telematics solution – allows transport companies to better utilise assets, improve efficiencies in the business that may otherwise go unseen and even reduce the costs involved in operating.
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.
