Hino has become the latest manufacturer to offer telematics as part of its business fleet solutions, launching its Traq system last week.

Hino Traq provides real-time tracking for owners and drivers through an online portal with vehicle performance, fuel consumption and whole-of-fleet performance monitoring.

According to Hino product strategy manager Daniel Petrovski, telematics will prove to be a valuable tool for modern businesses.

“It is crucial to provide support for businesses in the future and our aim is to provide our customers with range of business-building benefits that will save them money and worry,” he said.

“Partnering with businesses to translate this valuable information into real-world analytics will assist in finding efficiencies within their operations.”

Traq provides a range of features including fuel consumption and truck performance monitoring, over revving and harsh breaking reports, truck location, geo-fencing and driver alert button assist.

The system has been developed and tested specifically for Australia over the past two years.

Hino Traq system is available to order now on all new vehicles or retrofitted to existing fleets, and is covered by a three-year unlimited kilometre accessories warranty when fitted by an authorised Hino dealer.

The system retails for $2745 including installation and a one-year data subscription.
