Teletrac Navman to focus on EWD at Melbourne Truck Show

ittes-0516-navmanTeletrac Navman Australia will have a big focus on the implementation of electronic work diaries (EWD) at its stand as part of this year’s Melbourne Truck Show.

“Fatigue is one of the biggest risk areas and therefore one of the most highly legislated in the transport industry,” Teletrac Navman said.

“As one of the pillars of the Chain of Responsibility, fatigue laws and compliance regulations are necessary to ensure driver and community safety; transport operators need to keep a close eye on compliance and be up to date with driver work and rest hours, which is not a simple task, especially when considering a completely manual paper based system.”

Teletrac Navman added, “Fatigue management laws are complex. Compliance with national and state standards can be easily achieved through EWD solutions that provide instant feedback both the driver and back office.

“The significance of how much this technology can ensure compliance is clear in the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator’s recent decision to introduce EWD solutions as an alternative to the driver’s paper work diary.”

EWD solutions offer a flexible platform for drivers to manage their obligations to Australia’s fatigue laws and the Chain of Responsibility, allowing transport operators and their management team to focus on more strategic initiatives.

“By providing greater assurance to everyone in the transport chain, EWDs improve the management of driver fatigue and contribute to improved road safety,” Teletrac Navman said. “With the required use of certified telematics, operators are assured by secure and insightful fatigue information.”
