Teletrac Navman’s brand-new, custom-built electronic distance recorder for trailers has secured NZTA approval and will be rolling out during July. The company says the device was designed with practical input from Kiwi transport operators and uses ground-breaking new technology developed in New Zealand.

The device is part of Teletrac Navman’s electronic Road User Charges (RUC) system and is designed to automate RUC licence payment and display and calculate off-road rebates for heavy trailers independently of prime movers.

It’s a self-contained, sealed device and generates its power directly from the wheel’s rotation. By doing this, Teletrac Navman says there are no wires and no interference with the trailer ABS, EBS, or other systems. Operators can also self-install the device and use it as part of their Teletrac Navman RUC management solution.​​

"In the development of this solution, we spoke with our transport operator customers to get feedback on exactly what they needed, and this solution is the result," says Ian Daniel, vice president and managing director Asia Pacific.

"Automated RUC management is a very popular technology. Our customers wanted something they could easily install themselves, that was self-contained and self-powered, and had a large clear screen. This device ticks all the boxes for a busy operator.

"Feedback from customers is that electronic RUC saves them hours of admin time and even brings in a steady flow of rebates for off-road travel. With the recent increases in Road User Charges, every kilometre left unclaimed represents even more lost value to a business. Staying on top of regular rebates also assists a business with its cash flow."
