NZCI Limited - Crash Analysis and Insurance Investigation Services

Heavy Motor Vehicle Investigation Specialists

Since our establishment in 2005 NZCI has vast experience throughout New Zealand investigating heavy vehicle crashes through our association with the transport and insurance industry.

Using our investigation experience combined with crash analysis and our specialist equipment we are able to investigate and analyse heavy motor vehicle crashes using some of the most advanced and accurate methods available.


Due to demand we have acquired a Sokkia SET5X precision laser theodolite accurate to +/- 2mm, which enables precision crash scene surveying to provide your company with the most accurate reconstruction of a crash.

Engine Management Systems Data

Technology advancements in truck engine management systems and aftermarket attachments to them over recent years have enabled detailed crash data to be downloaded.

The downloadable engines that provide sufficient data at present are restricted to Cummins, Detroit, Caterpillar and Volvo; however it is becoming more common for transport operators to add aftermarket ECM’s that record data to assist in improving efficiency and safety, these can also provide valuable data to assist in reconstructing a crash.

Crash reconstruction scale scene diagram

For several years now we have been combining crash analysis, engine download data and precision scene survey data to produce the most accurate crash reconstructions available at the present time.

The data is either overlaid on a scale scene diagram (or 3D animation) revealing detailed events leading up to and during the crash.

What our customers say

Fonterra operate some 480 tanker/trailer units collecting milk from our 10,000 plus suppliers every day during the peak of the season. We operate on all kinds of public roads, farm roadways and all types of environments/weather conditions where it is deemed safe.

Doing some 86 million kilometers annually we do have a number of unplanned events. The key is to learn from these events and this is where NZCI have assisted greatly. The investigation starts with the scene of the accident followed by interviews with people involved and the detailed reports provided lay a great foundation for the Company to establish root cause of the incident.
