About The Wait Advisor

Driver fatigue is a leading cause of accident in Australian roads, of which at least 210 die each year and 1700 are hospitalised due to crashes involving heavy vehicles.

Currently, fatigue management systems gloss over trip delays, periods where drivers are technically at work but are idling and waiting. Heavy vehicle drivers who are on the road for up to 14 hours can be subjected to hours of delays at loading and unloading bays. This impacts their fitness to drive, but little has been done about it until now.

Presenting the Wait Advisor.

Using data science, Wait Advisor will expose delays throughout the supply chain and:

  • provide businesses at the loading and unloading ends of the supply chain insights that could be used to improve processes and achieve efficiencies;
  • provide regulators with the data needed to get every participant in the supply chain to do their part responsibly;
  • provide the industry association with insights that could be used to improve the working conditions of drivers.

All these are expected to reduce the driver wait times. Drivers will then be in better condition when they hit the road, more focused, and less stressed, which will significantly raise their fitness to drive.
