Using Fleet GPS Data to Monitor the Movement of Commercial Vehicles in New Zealand

The New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) commissioned Beca Infrastructure Ltd (Beca) to undertake a proof of concept study into the use of various sources of commercial vehicle data to enhance the understanding of freight activity across the country's road network. Having completed an investigation into sources of freight data currently available in New Zealand, the global positioning system (GPS) data collected by an electronic Road User Class (eRUC) provider was selected as the basis of the proof of concept study. This paper provides a summary of findings of this study and the future developments planned to provide an overview as to how fleet GPS data can be used to report on vehicle movements and inform the asset management process.
