Higher Mass Limits (HML) Scheme

Telematics Monitoring Application (TMA)

NSW Higher Mass Limits Telematics Conditions

The new Higher Mass Limits (HML) scheme in NSW provides operators a choice between IAP (Intelligent Access Program) or TMA (Telematics Monitoring Application). IAP is still used to provide evidence of non-conformance activities, whilst TMA is used by jurisdictions to gain visibility of heavy vehicle road usage.

What are the benefits of TMA over IAP?

  • Simple for drivers with no IAP declarations, and no need for another in-cab screen,
  • Assurance that your data is only being used for road analytics, and not for non-conformance reporting to the regulator,
  • Easy to implement with our self-installed Tracking Tag,
  • Cost-effective fixed annual subscription (no hardware or setup costs, no installation costs, no monthly costs).
