Driven by industry needs and developed in conjunction with associations, the NHVR, TCA and local councils, Farm Gate is designed to improve freight productivity by connecting first and last mile journeys direct to the farm gate. It introduces conditional access for HPV’s (high productivity vehicles) transport grain and livestock on council roads in participating areas (currently: Tamworth, Gunnedah, Narrandera, Coolamon, Temora, and Junee).
Heavy vehicles eligible to operate on the Farm Gate Network must be fitted with a telematics device and be enrolled in the Farm Gate scheme. Ensuring your vehicles are eligible to operate under the NSW Class 3 Livestock Transportation or Grain Harvest Management Exemption Notices is important.
You can enrol vehicles by getting in contact with Teletrac Navman or TCA. The data generated from vehicles is shared with TCA, who then aggregates and de-identifies all data to report on road usage can be made available to Transport for NSW and participating local governments.
Notify Teletrac Navman, an approved provider, of intent to participate in Farm Gate project, and have telematics installed in vehicles
Telematics data is automatically captured from vehicles in real-time
Teletrac Navman packages data and sent to TCA who de-anonymise the information
Road managers and Authorities are able to view data collected
