Intelligent Access Program to monitor urban freight

The Australian Intelligent Access Program (IAP) is a national program developed in partnership with all Australian road agencies. It uses satellite tracking and wireless communication technology to remotely monitor where, when, and how heavy vehicles are being operated on the road network. It provides an opportunity for transport operators to achieve productivity gains, better turnaround times and increased profits by allowing more access or increasing allowable mass in exchange for compliance.

It support road managers to better control the use of urban infrastructure and provide individual privileges to for instance clean and safe vehicles, introduce road pricing and monitor speed limits and overloading over trucks.
IAP is a vehicle tracking system used to monitor heavy vehicles that may damage road infrastructure or pose road safety risks. Vehicles are monitored to ensure they adhere to approved routes, at approved times and are not operating on inappropriate roads. Under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL), IAP can be imposed as a condition of a permit or notice by a road manager.
