Electronic Road User Charges: Streamline the RUC Process

Make Life Easier

Managing road user charges (RUC) takes a lot of time and effort. From managing expiry dates of multiple licences to detective work for calculating off-road travel rebates – there’s a lot to keep track of. Businesses also run the risk of heavy fines for operating with expired licences.

Many businesses spend hours checking, purchasing and distributing licences. This leads to administrative support chasing down truck drivers to check hubos and having to arrange time to collect the paper licences - or even sending them through the post, which adds cost and time delays.

When it comes to rebates for off-road travel, it can be a mammoth task collecting driver records on when and for how long they were off-road, and more hours to fill out the rebates claim form. Many businesses don’t bother and end up overpaying RUC each year – money they could get back.

You can automate this entire process with Teletrac Navman’s RUC Manager, an electronic road user charges solution.

The electronic road user charges (eRUC) solution manages, purchases, displays and updates RUC licences in real-time. Using NZTA-approved electronic distance recorders affixed to the windscreen of vehicles or fitted to the wheels of heavy trailers, the system calculates off-road activity and pre-populates an accurate RUC rebate form for maximised rebates.

Teletrac Navman’s eRUC solution can be used for trucks, vans, company cars, and even heavy trailers independently of prime movers. An electronic RUC solution helps to streamline the entire RUC process, bringing money back into your business, saving you valuable time and administration efforts, while minimising compliance risk.
