Transtech’s In-Vehicle Units (IVU) have become the first in Australia to be Type-Approved by Transport Certification Australia (TCA). The use of Type-Approved IVUs ensure Transtech’s customers continue to obtain strong assurance in the use of its telematics, peace of mind for its services and a platform for the future.

Transtech’s IVUs have proved themselves as a strong investment; designed, built, tested and delivered for the IAP (Intelligent Access Program) and OBM (On-Board Mass) market with forward-planning to the upcoming EWD (Electronic Work Diary) program.

Transport operators are turning to technology to help manage contracts, service levels and obligations to the Chain of Responsibility (CoR). Transtech’s IVUs provide the confidence to rely on the quality of the information it produces. The Type-Approval promotes a stepping-stone toward CTS technology for the highest level of accuracy in the IVUs evidentiary and court-enforceable data it produces.

At the heart of the vehicle, Transtech’s IVU is a reliable, flexible and robust solution for operators. It provides a specialised range of features including secure data logging, tamper evidence, integrated ability for GPS vehicle tracking and more. Connected to the cellular network for the effective communication of information, the IVU is built for not only fleet and location management applications; it also delivers a vital link to engine management for vehicle and driver behaviour and on-board scales for On-Board Mass applications. It is the fleet management tool of choice for progressive transport operators in Australia.

“Transtech’s IVU and its compliance-based applications, were part of its design specification and ensuring type certification was a primary goal. Outside of the compliance market, the IVU provides a connection to speed monitoring, location management, engine management and on-board scales. Our customers gain surety in the quality and accuracy of the IVU,” said Andrew Rossington, Chief Executive Officer at Transtech.

“Importantly, all of Transtech’s clients who have purchased one of our IVUs over the years now have the additional benefit that their existing IVUs are Type-Approved, ensuring compatibility with existing regulatory programs in which Transtech is certified,” he added.

Transtech is well positioned to further cement its strong position as the leader in compliance services and will continue to invest into the future with EWDs and more.

Transtech’s has combined over 25 years of knowledge and experience in the transport industry with technology, such as the IVU, to deliver truly unique solutions.
