Transport Certification Australia Limited (TCA), the company administering the Intelligent Access Program (IAP), has announced The Transtech Driven Partnership as an IAP service provider.

Chief Executive Chris Koniditsiotis says the announcement highlights TCA’s commitment to giving transport operators options when choosing their provider.

"Providing transport operators with a competitive market in IAP services has always been one of TCA’s main objectives and the announcement of The Transtech Driven Partnership as the second IAP Service Provider is a significant step towards achieving that," he says.

The Transtech Driven Partnership describe itself as a partner to Transtech Consulting Services, an organisation which has "10 years’ transport industry solutions experience and boasts a broad suite of complementary non-IAP transport and logistics tools".

According to CEO Shaun Owen: "Choosing Transtech for IAP gives customers a partner with a strong track record in the heavy vehicle industry."

The IAP is a voluntary program which provides heavy vehicles with improved access to Australia’s road network in return for GPS monitoring of compliance with specific access conditions.

In return, the IAP provides road authorities with greater confidence heavy vehicles are complying with the agreed road access conditions.

Under the IAP, participating heavy vehicles are monitored using telematics services with an in-vehicle unit (IVU). The IVU is supplied and operated by an IAP service provider, certified by TCA.

Only IAP service providers, identified by the IAP certification symbol, can supply IAP services.

The Transtech Driven Partnership joins Sigtec, certified in April this year, as the currently available IAP service providers.

According to Koniditsiotis TCA anticipates announcing further IAP service providers over the coming months, dependent on the progress of applicants.

"While we are looking forward to announcing the availability of further IAP service providers, it has always been TCA’s position that the time taken to achieve certification is dependent on the progression and advancement of each Applicant; it is not something dictated by timelines," he says.
