Teletrac Navman and Natroad announce Silver Partnership agreement to promote Digital Literacy across the Transport Industry
SYDNEY, Australia, 24 February, 2020 – Teletrac Navman, Australia’s leading fleet management and transport solutions provider, today announces a silver partnership agreement with National Road Transport Association (NatRoad), Australia’s only national member association for businesses in road transport, an industry encapsulating over 55,000 individual businesses. The partnership agreement is set to spearhead the next wave of digital adoption in the Australian transport sector, prompting a largescale uptake of digital innovations including telematics and automation.
“We are delighted to announce this partnership with Natroad” says Ian Daniel, Vice President Managing Director, Asia Pacific at Teletrac Navman. “Teletrac Navman is at the forefront of digital transformation and telematics within the transport industry in Australia and this collaboration with Natroad will help drive greater levels of digital literacy across the entire industry.”
Daniel continues, “The partnership is unique in Australia in that it aims to address key issues that the entire industry faces, primarily a poor uptake of new innovative technologies. Encouraging the uptake of new digital skills in the transport space will give the industry a huge advantage by boosting efficiency, safety and profitability. This will pave the way to tackle other industry challenges into the future.”
National Road Transport Association (NatRoad) CEO Warren Clark has embraced the partnership agreement as a way of combating the challenges his members face. He comments “While we have traditionally focused on the potential benefits of telematics, artificial intelligence, smart cities, automated vehicles and machine learning, we need to consider that these technologies will need to be adopted by a workforce which hasn’t historically embraced digital transformation.”
“NatRoad is committed to working with partners like Teletrac Navman to create solutions that address the complexities faced in the road transport industry. We are committed to building a more sustainable future,” said Warren.
Considering the volume of new technologies penetrating the market, the onus is now on proprietors across the transport sector to embrace and implement these innovative new technologies seamlessly and effectively. The partnership agreement between Natroad and Teletrac Navman aims to demystify these technologies, enabling ease of adoption and revolutionising the industry to become more technologically savvy.
