Michael Ryan


DrivaLink Pty Ltd

Michael Ryan is a Director of DrivaLink Pty Ltd, an industry leader in telematics, digital fatigue management and all round driver safety technology.

Michaels’ beliefs are that digital transparency and the use of driver technology in the day to day operation of Heavy Vehicles is a critical building block in the reduction, if not prevention, of ‘near misses’ and/or motor vehicle incidents.

In addition to co-managing DrivaLink Pty Ltd Michael is also the Managing Director of Ryan Plant Hire Pty Ltd which is responsible for the removal of concrete waste from the majority of concrete plants within Sydney Metro.

Born and raised within the Trucking and Machinery industry gives Michael a ‘cross the board’ knowledge base helping him to direct DrivaLink from a practical stand point, assisting the delivery of a more user-friendly telematics system with the most pertinent and useful information required for day to day operations.

Michael believes that ease of use is essential for the integration of telematics within any business making the roads safer for all who travel on or around them.

Session Overview

Telematics and its correlation within Heavy Vehicle Safety

In this talk we will be covering how telematics works in to our day to day operations allowing us to have better controls in place for fatigue management, load management, safe operation of equipment and road rule compliance.

We will also outline the risks and potential outcomes from neglecting these four controls and how they impact other road users, including cyclists and pedestrians.

Having a background and businesses in both the telematics and transport industry my goal is to better educate how technology can be applied to the transport industry in many different areas to make a safer environment for all, not only from an ideological standpoint but also from a practical one as an owner/operator.
