Your business is unique. Just like your fleet of vehicles. Therefore, you need a flexible fleet management platform: a solution in terms of fleet optimisation, vehicle tracking, workforce management, green & safe driving, business integration and connected car services that suit your activities, vehicles, size, budget and location.
Are you looking for a fleet management solution for the Newcastle region that provides you with real-time information about the location of your vehicles? Do you also want to communicate directly with your drivers, dispatch jobs, track a mileage logbook, improve driving behaviour and save on fuel? Our vehicle tracking and Active Driver Feedback help you with this challenge in a busy city like Newcastle.
Only two hours north of Sydney and home to the largest coal exporting harbour in the world, Newcastle has long been a strong city of industry. But now, it's fast becoming a booming hub for modern Australians and is one of the biggest growth cities in the nation1. It's also one of the most beautiful – with expansive sandy beaches, sprawling nearby lakes and unforgettable panoramic views. Tourists regularly flock to Nobby's Lighthouse and Newcastle Museum in the city, or drive to the nearby Hunter Valley wine region or central coast lakes district – or, further north to Byron Bay, Noosa and The Gold Coast.
As the second biggest city in New South Wales, there's over 4,000 kilometres of major roads and highways connecting Newcastle out to the rest of Australia. And with that sometimes comes congestion, so it's important to know the key routes and services motorways to ensure your truck or fleet service gets to where it needs to be smoothly. The A43, A15, B63, A37 and B57 are all major roads reaching out either from or through Newcastle, and roads connecting to smaller hubs surrounding the city – like Gosford, Forster, Maitland and Raymond Terrace – which are regularly used town routes to reach wider New South Wales from or through Newcastle.
Why is a fleet management solution particularly useful in a congested city like Newcastle? Due to heavy traffic during the day and specifically in peak hours, each vehicle spends about 23%2 more on the road. That means an average commercial vehicle driver wastes more than 85 hours2 per year while sat in traffic. This can translate into significant losses for businesses in the Newcastle area – and that’s precisely where a fleet management solution can help.
