Zero-stress servicing.<br />

Brought to you by Isuzu.<br />

No business wants big, unexpected bills. But with an Isuzu service agreement, you can flatten your truck servicing<br />

costs into a predictable monthly payment (or upfront fee with Isuzu Essentials). You’ll also be part of one of<br />

Australia’s biggest dealer networks, so you can book a service at locations around the country. With the new<br />

Chain of Responsibility laws, proper servicing will protect your business. Lastly, service agreements come with<br />

Isuzu Care, Australia’s most comprehensive truck customer care programme. To find out more, see your nearest<br />

Welcome to<br />

the <strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>!<br />

We are delighted to welcome you to the<br />

2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>. Within this<br />

Official <strong>Show</strong> <strong>Program</strong> is a full preview of<br />

the show, lists of exhibitors, plus maps<br />

and other important details, all designed<br />

to help visitors make better informed<br />

truck, trailer and transport equipment<br />

purchasing decisions<br />

THIS IS SUCH an important occasion for the industry to get<br />

together. It is a reward for the incredible job that has been<br />

done keeping Australia moving over the past 18 months<br />

through drought, bushfires and the pandemic.<br />

When the doors open and visitors start streaming through<br />

– there really is no better sight. It is an occasion for old mates<br />

to catch up, to share knowledge, fellowship and banter, and it is<br />

probably fair to say that this year we all need that more than ever<br />

before.<br />

The <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> is hosted by Heavy Vehicle<br />

Industry Australia (HVIA), the national association representing<br />

manufacturers and suppliers of heavy vehicles and their<br />

components, equipment and technology.<br />

The show has come a long way from its humble beginnings when<br />

21 truck, trailer and component manufacturers and suppliers came<br />

together at Haulmark Trailers’ premises in Rocklea in 1968.<br />

These days, it is, by far, the biggest business event our industry<br />

holds in the southern hemisphere. The last event went on to be<br />

honoured at the 2019 Australian Event Awards as ‘Australia’s Best<br />

Corporate Event and Best Exhibtion, Trade or Consumer <strong>Show</strong>’.<br />

Those accolades have only served to inspire more energy to<br />

further improve the show for both exhibitors and visitors.<br />

Our exhibitors do an extraordinary job raising the bar every<br />

show and this year is no different. On display is a fantastic array of<br />

products, from the very latest trucks and innovative trailer designs,<br />

to components, equipment, accessories and groundbreaking<br />

technology solutions.<br />

The show attracts visitors from the length and breadth of the<br />

country, representing the pillars of Australian industry – agriculture,<br />

construction, mining, retail and, of course, freight and logistics.<br />

It is inspiring to see the enthusiasm with which visitors approach<br />

the innovative products and solutions that are showcased at the<br />

event.<br />

The countless deals sealed with a handshake during the show are<br />

testament of the mutual respect that the heavy vehicle industry and<br />

its clients have for each other.<br />

The December quarter saw the Australian economy experience<br />

its single largest increase in capital expenditure in a quarter<br />

since March 2012. The Australian Bureau of Statistics suggest that<br />

businesses have upgraded their investment intentions off the back<br />

of the Instant Asset Write-Off, Better Business Investment and now<br />

the Temporary Full Expensing schemes.<br />

As the show doors open it is still clear that there has never been a<br />

better time to upgrade your fleet.<br />


The <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> is described as the place where the<br />

industry gathers. That side of it is hugely important too.<br />

In fact, the 2021 show is part of a full week of celebrations<br />

showcasing Australia’s heavy vehicle industry.<br />

Following its hugely successful launch in 2019, Australian Heavy<br />

Vehicle Industry Week once again serves as the umbrella capturing<br />

all of the events and activities going on across <strong>Brisbane</strong> alongside<br />

the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

The events are all underpinned by the six themes of Australian<br />

Heavy Vehicle Industry Week: innovation, safety, sustainability,<br />

careers, knowledge and community.<br />

Partnerships with the Queensland Government, <strong>Brisbane</strong> City<br />

Council and South Bank Parklands have enabled the show to expand<br />

ABOVE: Your <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> ticket will put you into the running for the Ultimate<br />

VIP Experience Package<br />

RIGHT: There’s plenty going on each day, with an expanded South Bank Festival and the<br />

Civil Construction Field Days just a free shuttle ride away<br />


eyond the walls of the <strong>Brisbane</strong> Convention and Exhibition Centre,<br />

to engage the broader community and share some of our industry’s<br />

inspiring stories of innovation, collaboration and resilience.<br />

Those partnerships have come about because they recognise<br />

the value of every attendee to the show, and indeed the enormous<br />

contribution our industry makes to the economy.<br />

It has enabled the industry Jobs Hub and National Apprentice<br />

Challenge to take up a new home at South Bank Piazza, where the<br />

community will be able to see for themselves the diverse range of<br />

rewarding career paths on offer.<br />

It has enabled the development of a Technology and Innovation<br />

Centre and a Future Fuels Hub.<br />

Following the success of our first foray into the adjacent South<br />

Bank Parklands, streets in the dining and entertainment precinct of<br />

Little Stanley Street and Stanley Street Plaza will again be closed to<br />

traffic to create a hub called the South Bank <strong>Truck</strong> Festival.<br />

We hope you will all enjoy congregating there with your mates<br />

and peers – both old and new – and share in the spirit of this<br />

fabulous week of events.<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong> is really opening its doors for us this year and laying out<br />

the red carpet.<br />

We take this opportunity to pay tribute to the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong><br />

<strong>Show</strong>’s key partners, particularly NTI and <strong>Truck</strong> Assist, BP Australia<br />

and our many other supporting partners.<br />

Thanks also go to <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> Media Partner Are Media,<br />

publisher of market-leading titles Australasian Transport News<br />

(ATN), Deals on Wheels, Earthmovers & Excavators, Farms & Farm<br />

Machinery and Owner Driver. This program is also the result of its<br />

great ongoing support of the Australian transport industry.<br />

We are privileged to be joined by organisations like these to<br />

continue to build and grow a world-class event for our visitors.<br />

Don’t forget that your fully registered and activated <strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> ticket will put you into the running for the Ultimate<br />

VIP Experience Package thanks to the Morris Finance. One lucky<br />

attendee is set to enjoy corporate treatment at Bathurst and the AFL,<br />

hot laps and numerous other prizes valued at over $45,000.<br />

All tickets purchased for the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> will also give<br />

you access to the Civil Construction Field Days heavy equipment<br />

and machinery show. A free shuttle service will also be available,<br />

running between the two events (details about the event are in the<br />

back of this program).<br />

We hope you enjoy your experience attending this year’s <strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> and all of the other events and activities within it and<br />

across <strong>Brisbane</strong>.<br />

“We hope you will all enjoy<br />

A WARM<br />


Welcome to the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>, a<br />

highlight of the Australian Heavy Vehicle<br />

Industry Week, which the Queensland<br />

Government is proud to sponsor<br />

ORE THAN 65,000 people are expected to visit<br />

the <strong>Brisbane</strong> Exhibition and Convention Centre<br />

Mand South Bank Parklands from May 10–16, 2021,<br />

exploring the latest trucks, trailers, technologies and<br />

accessories, and giving a friendly ‘steering wheel<br />

wave’ to our nation’s heavy vehicle industry, which<br />

kept Queensland moving throughout an incredibly<br />

challenging 2020.<br />

I thank all industry partners for working with the<br />

Queensland Government to maintain supply chains and<br />

deliver essential supplies to communities during the<br />

coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. With border restrictions<br />

and strict freight protocols put in place to protect the<br />

health of Queenslanders, it was a demanding time for<br />

Australian truck drivers and freight and logistics workers.<br />

Queensland is now in a strong health position and<br />

the Queensland Government is focused on economic<br />

recovery. This includes the creation of transport jobs and<br />

the continued delivery of the Queensland Freight Strategy,<br />

our 10-year vision for a fully integrated, resilient freight<br />

system that will make ours the safest and most productive<br />

state in Australia.<br />

The pandemic has certainly illuminated the importance<br />

of trucking to the people of our vast state, and the<br />

2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> is celebrating it in its usual<br />

big-chassis way.<br />




Please avoid touching surfaces<br />



Festival flourishes<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> swells into week-long festival of<br />

of HVIA member organisations<br />

to share knowledge and discuss<br />

common issues with their peers.<br />

It’s also a forum for executives<br />

to build networks and develop<br />

relationships, as well as gain<br />

access to decision makers.<br />

THURSDAY, MAY 13<br />

Bigger and better<br />

Australian Heavy Vehicle Industry Week brings the trucking industry out of the<br />

convention and exhibition centre and into the South Bank of <strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

The launch of Australian Heavy Vehicle<br />

Industry (AHVI) Week as its umbrella<br />

event formalised something that has<br />

been happening for years alongside the<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

HVIA chief executive Todd Hacking explains<br />

that exhibitors have long been holding launch<br />

events, customer dinners, dealer conferences,<br />

drive days, factory tours and much more in<br />

tandem with the <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

“The reaction to the expansion into South<br />

Bank Parklands was fantastic,” Hacking says<br />

of 2019’s bigger show presence outside of the<br />

exhibition centre.<br />

“All of that success is a reflection on<br />

the leadership shown by so many of our<br />

exhibitors, who did such an amazing job of<br />

showcasing the values of their companies and<br />

our industry to the broader community.”<br />

The week of events and the communication<br />

campaign around it foster broader community<br />

awareness about the heavy vehicle industry’s<br />

vital role and positive impact within the<br />

community.<br />

With the support of Tourism and Events<br />

Queensland, <strong>Brisbane</strong> City Council and South<br />

Bank Corporation, Little Stanley Street and<br />

Stanley Street Plaza will be closed to traffic to<br />

showcase innovative trucks and trailers.<br />

Following AHVI Week’s success in 2019,<br />

the South Bank precinct has grown into a<br />

full-fledged festival, with an abundance of<br />

activities and entertainment, all supported<br />

by the precinct’s retailers waiting to welcome<br />

visitors with a plethora of great dining options.<br />

“The opportunity to showcase our industry<br />

in this spectacular location provides the<br />

perfect opportunity to share our story with<br />

the community in a tangible and lasting way,”<br />

Hacking says.<br />

“We are extremely grateful to the<br />

22<br />

Queensland Government and the City of<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong> for coming on board to enable this<br />

initiative to come to life.”<br />


The intent behind AHVI Week broadly supports<br />

the government’s agenda across a wide range<br />

of strategic priorities, including promoting<br />

Queensland as a major hub for Australia’s<br />

vibrant and innovative heavy vehicle<br />

manufacturing industry.<br />

The recent launch of MaxiTrans’ new<br />

heavy-duty trailer manufacturing facility in<br />

Carole Park is just one prime example of the<br />

industry’s health and willingness to invest in<br />

advanced facilities.<br />

The Queensland Government partnership<br />

also utilises the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> to<br />

promote road safety and workplace safety<br />

across many sectors, including manufacturing,<br />

service centres, construction, agriculture and<br />

road transport.<br />

AHVI Week includes a full schedule of events<br />

within the <strong>Brisbane</strong> Convention and Exhibition<br />

Centre (BCEC).<br />

The opening morning of the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong><br />

<strong>Show</strong> features the Manufacturers Media Tour,<br />

attracting leading automotive, industry and<br />

mainstream journalists to witness the<br />

highly-anticipated unveiling of many new<br />

trucks, trailers and equipment.<br />

The expanded Technology and Innovation<br />

Centre and Future Fuels and Sustainability<br />

Hub are both set to provide a picture of where<br />

the industry is heading over the rest of this<br />

decade and beyond.<br />

Beyond the walls of the BCEC, the Jobs Hub<br />

and the HVIA National Apprentice Challenge<br />

will showcase career opportunities to the<br />

broader community, with free entry at the<br />

South Bank Piazza amphitheatre.<br />

Hacking says that the heavy vehicle industry<br />

offers diverse and rewarding career paths.<br />

“With hundreds of jobs available directly<br />

from Jobs Hub exhibitors, this will open doors<br />

to young people just entering the workforce<br />

and others considering something new,” he<br />

explains.<br />

Sunday is when families are most obvious at<br />

the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>. While the exhibitors<br />

count the business cards and order forms<br />

from the previous three days, they are just as<br />

keen to welcome the mums and dads, small<br />

business people – and their kids – potentially<br />

the next generation of heavy vehicle industry<br />

talent.<br />

Meanwhile, away from the convention<br />

centre, there will be full hotels all across<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong>; there will be dealer conferences,<br />

association meetings, large and small<br />

customer dinners and events held across<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong> every night before and during the<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

The new Civil Construction Field Days<br />

sees a welcome return for heavy equipment<br />

and machinery, just a short shuttle away at<br />

Hamilton Northshore, with reciprocal tickets<br />

for both events.<br />

AHVI Week celebrates our thriving and<br />

robust local industry – a world leader in many<br />

aspects of heavy vehicle transport.<br />

Hacking says that the week is about<br />

expressing pride in the heavy vehicle industry<br />

while starting a conversation with the broader<br />

community about its innovation, local<br />

manufacturing and sustainability; about road<br />

safety, skills development, education and<br />

careers.<br />

“We encourage every participant to fully<br />

embrace the opportunities that the Australian<br />

Heavy Vehicle Industry Week offers and to be a<br />

part of sharing our great story,” he says.

OVER 60 years of quality and innovation


CCFD<br />

Return of the mighty machines<br />

Heavy equipment and machinery is back at Hamilton Northshore, with the Civil<br />

Construction Field Days running from Thursday, May 13 to Saturday, May 15<br />

IT IS A PARTNERSHIP that turns back<br />

the clock, with the launch of a new<br />

accompanying heavy equipment and<br />

machinery show.<br />

The Civil Construction Field<br />

Days (CCFD) will run alongside the <strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> during Australian Heavy Vehicle<br />

Industry Week, thanks to a collaboration<br />

between Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia<br />

(HVIA) and the Civil Contractors Federation<br />

Queensland (CCFQ).<br />

HVIA chief executive Todd Hacking says<br />

the deal includes reciprocal ticketing as<br />

well as regular bus transfers between the<br />

two venues.<br />

“One ticket, two shows and free transport.<br />

That will make a lot of people happy,”<br />

Hacking says.<br />

“HVIA has been on a journey of trying to<br />

deliver more value for our loyal attendees,<br />

who travel from all around Australia and<br />

the world to come to Queensland for the<br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

“I think this is an absolute game-changer<br />

and I’m proud of the HVIA board, the BTS<br />

organising team, and thank the leadership<br />

of the CCFQ for working with us over the past<br />

12 months to ensure we can get this deal off<br />

the ground.”<br />

CCFQ CEO Damian Long echoes these<br />

sentiments.<br />

“We are so pleased to announce this<br />

partnership with HVIA,” Long says.<br />

“Our members use a lot of trucks and<br />

trailers; our two industries are intertwined<br />

and aligned, so to be able to offer an<br />

expanded new concept will be an incredible<br />

event.<br />

“Aligning transport and heavy equipment<br />

is a show stopper and will not only ensure<br />

the industry can attend and look at the new<br />

developments, innovation and technology,<br />

but it is also a great way for the family to<br />

come together on the weekend and learn<br />

more about our industries.<br />

“Our industry builds the roads, tunnels,<br />

motorways, rail, pipelines, airports, and<br />

community developments that supports the<br />

Queensland economy. We are connecting<br />

Queensland.<br />

“Major infrastructure projects that are<br />

transforming our state include the recently<br />

completed Toowoomba Second Range<br />

Crossing and the new runway at <strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

Airport.<br />

“Current projects such as Inland Rail, the<br />

M1 and Bruce Highway upgrades, Cross River<br />

Rail and <strong>Brisbane</strong> Metro will transform the<br />

lives of many Queenslanders.”<br />

JOBS HUB<br />

The next generation<br />

The BTS21 Industry Jobs Hub will showcase our exciting industry to thousands of<br />

students and potential job seekers<br />

THE JOBS HUB is co-located with the<br />

National Apprentice Challenge at the<br />

South Bank Piazza from Thursday, May<br />

13 to Sunday, May 16 as part of the<br />

South Bank <strong>Truck</strong> Festival and features<br />

a full schedule of interactive entertainment.<br />

Exhibitors and career specialists will talk<br />

to attendees about heavy vehicle industry<br />

career paths and how to get started on the<br />

journey.<br />

The <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> has a proud<br />

history of showcasing career opportunities in<br />

the heavy vehicle industry – bringing school<br />

students from all over <strong>Brisbane</strong> to the event<br />

so they can learn more about the industry<br />

and the diverse and rewarding career<br />

pathways available.<br />

Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA)<br />

chief executive Todd Hacking says that the<br />

success of the Jobs Hub at the last show<br />

inspired the expansion to showcase the<br />

heavy vehicle industry to a wider audience.<br />

“We are excited to relocate the Jobs Hub<br />

and National Apprentice Challenge to the<br />

South Bank Piazza, making it free for the<br />

community to attend, and linking it with<br />

the South Bank <strong>Truck</strong> Festival,” Hacking<br />

says. “We are partnering with the state<br />

and federal governments to ensure job<br />

agencies, job seekers, parents, teachers<br />

and students have access to industry<br />

ambassadors and real jobs.<br />

“Within the same space, we will be<br />

delivering an engaging education program<br />

with hands-on workshops, master classes<br />

and hackathons aimed at inspiring<br />

and empowering our industry’s next<br />

generation.”<br />


The whole activation will be hosted by<br />

an amazing young entrepreneur named<br />

Scott Millar. From selling keyrings at local<br />

markets, Millar grew his business into an<br />

e-commerce brand, shipping thousands of<br />

units a month by the time he was 15.<br />

At 16, he launched a company creating<br />

holograms for events and marketing and,<br />

by the time he was in grade 12, he was<br />

travelling around the world, working with<br />

leading brands on their events.<br />

Millar now works with young people<br />

worldwide to show them that age, location<br />

and background is no longer a barrier for<br />

success in today’s innovation economy.<br />

“I am hoping to lead by example to show<br />

other young people the amazing things they<br />

can do and the opportunities they can take if<br />

they both work hard and work smart,” Millar<br />

explains.<br />


The South Bank Piazza is an amazing covered<br />

amphitheatre that will also feature the live<br />

staging of the National Apprentice Challenge.<br />

“Alongside all that, <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong><br />

exhibitors will be connecting with students<br />

and other job seekers from the Jobs Hub<br />

display,” Hacking adds.<br />

“We have previously brought in hundreds<br />

of students from about 40 schools in the<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong> catchment.<br />

“This year, with additional support from the<br />

Queensland Government, we are expecting<br />

that number to head well north of a thousand<br />

and coming from upwards of 100 schools.”<br />

Hacking says the BTS21 Jobs Hub presents<br />

a unique opportunity for <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong><br />

<strong>Show</strong> exhibitors to demonstrate the diverse<br />

career paths available across the industry<br />

and to access the great pipeline of talent for<br />

their businesses.<br />

“We are really excited to be able to connect<br />

with the broader community around the<br />

strength of the heavy vehicle industry and<br />

the rewarding careers that we know are there<br />

for people with the right attitude,” he says.<br />

At the <strong>Truck</strong><br />

<strong>Show</strong>’s Future<br />

Sustainability<br />

Hub, Heavy<br />

Vehicle Industry<br />

Australia (HVIA)<br />

is showcasing<br />

the latest<br />

developments<br />

in sustainable<br />

energy solutions<br />

The next step<br />


committed to around $1.5 billion in<br />

funding for the Australian Renewable<br />

Energy Agency (ARENA) over the next<br />

10 years to support low emission<br />

technologies across the innovation chain.<br />

HVIA chief executive Todd Hacking says that<br />

the heavy vehicle industry has shown its own<br />

determination to accelerate the transition<br />

away from fossil fuels.<br />

“Our industry has always been at the<br />

forefront of innovation, with a great history of<br />

achievements in safety, productivity and our<br />

environmental footprint,” Hacking says.<br />

“In the last 20 years alone, more than<br />

90 per cent of the toxic emissions of<br />

diesel exhausts have been removed,<br />

whilst engine power and economy have<br />

improved significantly.<br />

“At the last <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>,<br />

the southern hemisphere’s largest<br />

automotive business event, we witnessed a<br />

turning point for our industry with the arrival<br />

of commercial-ready electric vehicles,<br />

but equally as importantly – an array of<br />

technology to convert existing vehicles<br />

through electric drivetrains.<br />

“We already have hybrid and fully electric<br />

trucks starting to appear in more and more<br />

fleets, very capably fulfilling tasks for local and<br />

last-mile work.<br />

“However, there is no sitting still and our<br />

members and their international parents<br />

around the world are making great leaps<br />

forward every day to deliver solutions for<br />

highway work.<br />

“We now have manufacturers unveiling<br />

hydrogen fuel cell-powered long-haul<br />

solutions, which will go into fast development<br />

and trialling for different markets.<br />

“But the key to that becoming a<br />

commercial reality and success in Australia<br />

is the infrastructure and supply of green<br />

hydrogen across our enormous highway<br />

network.<br />

“BP have announced their own clean<br />

energy roadmap and that includes being<br />

an enabler for solutions, including fast<br />

charging electric stations and hydrogen<br />

infrastructure.<br />

“All Australian states and territories are<br />

signatories to the National Hydrogen Strategy<br />

and every one of them will need to get behind<br />

these sorts of initiatives.”<br />

“We already have hybrid and fully electric trucks<br />

starting to appear in more and more fleets”<br />


Hacking explains that HVIA will be showcasing<br />

the industry’s ambitions at the 2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> with a devoted Future Fuels &<br />

Sustainability Hub.<br />

“The 2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> is set to take<br />

all that to another level across the show floor<br />

and HVIA will lead the way with the launch of<br />

dedicated displays to showcase groundbreaking<br />

developments,” Hacking says.<br />

“Visitors to the show will see current<br />

opportunities to implement sustainable<br />

energy solutions into their own operations in<br />

the most rapid viable timeline.<br />

“The heavy vehicle industry is determined<br />

to be at the forefront of this conversation in<br />

Australia, as next-generation energy solutions<br />

take the momentous steps from concept to<br />

commercial reality.”<br />

In the zone<br />

Head over to the expanded Technology & Innovation Centre at the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong><br />

to check out the latest innovations in productivity and safety-enhancing technology<br />


extraordinarily high volumes and<br />

fine margins that road transport<br />

operators are so adept at working<br />

around the margins, finding better<br />

ways of doing things to increase productivity<br />

and thereby improving profitability and return<br />

on investment.<br />

Many of the industry’s widely-adopted<br />

innovations have come through years of<br />

experimentation. Increasingly, however, it is<br />

down to science, with new technologies that<br />

are able to calculate and assess situations,<br />

capacity and capability with instant precision.<br />

The outcomes are technologies that<br />

improve productivity and safety, leaving<br />

nothing to chance.<br />

It applies to every facet of a vehicle, from<br />

tyre pressure to load restraint, and sensors<br />

that save lives by activating safe braking<br />

protocols alongside others that provide alerts<br />

by watching the vehicle’s lane alignment and<br />

blind spots.<br />

It applies to managing the driver’s<br />

task; from scheduling to loading, to<br />

fatigue management and driver health<br />

and safety.<br />

The power of data touches every aspect<br />

of our lives and the heavy vehicle industry<br />

is no different. The processing power of the<br />

smallest circuitry is applied in the most<br />

extraordinary ways.<br />

Last year, the federal government and<br />

National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR)<br />

combined to launch a blueprint designed to<br />

support and encourage manufacturers and<br />

operators to incorporate the latest safety<br />

technology into new and existing heavy<br />

vehicles.<br />

Assistant minister for road safety Scott<br />

Buchholz says the initiative was intended<br />

to remove barriers for heavy vehicle<br />

manufacturers’ use of that technology.<br />

“For example, lane departure warning,<br />

autonomous emergency braking systems and<br />

pedestrian and cyclist detection systems are<br />

32<br />

all available, so let’s see them on more new<br />

vehicles,” Buchholz states.<br />

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto adds that the<br />

plan would address better harmonisation of<br />

Australian vehicle standards, better access<br />

to the latest vehicle technologies, ensuring<br />

appropriate in-service requirements, and<br />

industry education about new and emerging<br />

technology.<br />

“When we surveyed manufacturers, we saw<br />

that there was very little consistency when<br />

it comes to installing newer types of safety<br />

technology,” Petroccitto explains.<br />

“For example, stability control was included<br />

on 78 per cent of new vehicles, but fatigue<br />

monitoring systems were used on less than<br />

one in five, while lane keep assist featured on<br />

one in four new vehicles.”<br />

“The expanded<br />

Technology &<br />

Innovation Centre is<br />

a series of displays<br />

that showcase the<br />

application of new<br />

technology, right now”<br />

at the HVIA National Apprentice<br />

Challenge, to be staged live at the<br />

2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

The competition pits the bestof-the-best,<br />

from all over the country,<br />

against each other and against the clock.<br />

The prizes are hugely attractive for a<br />

young bloke/lady on the tools, what with<br />

a fully hosted trip to the V8 Supercars up<br />

for grabs – the full corporate treatment<br />

and pit lane tours and a whole lot more.<br />

Now, there is the added pressure of<br />

performing under the spotlight. The<br />

apprentice challenge is moving from<br />

the loading bays at <strong>Brisbane</strong> Convention<br />

and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) into South<br />

Bank Piazza.<br />

The set-up at BCEC was great, but this<br />

is like going from a kick around at the<br />

park to the MCG in one fell swoop.<br />

Each regional team works on one of<br />

two identical Isuzu FX-series prime<br />

movers to identify and rectify a series of<br />

programmed faults as the clock ticks.<br />

The winning team is the first<br />

successfully to identify and repair all<br />

the faults, or the team that rectifies<br />

the most faults within the allowed time<br />

frame.<br />

Heats are held on Thursday and Friday<br />

in front of hundreds of school students,<br />

who are brought to the show to get a<br />

taste for the heavy vehicle industry as a<br />

career option.<br />

On the weekend, it is the community’s<br />

For visitors, the competition is quite a<br />

dynamic spectacle, with commentary<br />

explaining the apprentices’ moves and<br />

strategy, as their approach to addressing<br />

the challenge unfolds.<br />

Things can get tense as the teams<br />

watch their available time evaporate.<br />

All finalists will receive tool prizes<br />

courtesy of Warby Tools.<br />

The top two teams from the heats will<br />

go head-to-head in the final on day four<br />

of the <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

The winning regional team will<br />

be hosted to attend the Supercars<br />

Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia<br />

(HVIA) chief executive Todd Hacking<br />

says the number of nominations for the<br />

2021 National Apprentice Challenge is<br />

testimony to the emerging talent coming<br />

into the heavy vehicle industry.<br />

“The response has again been<br />

exceptional, with nominations received<br />

from second-, third- and fourth-year<br />

apprentices, Australia-wide,” Hacking<br />

says.<br />

“These young people are at the<br />

beginning of a journey that will open<br />

doors to hugely rewarding career<br />

paths with Australian and international<br />

companies involved in the manufacture,<br />

distribution and support of trucks, trailers<br />

and their components.<br />

“These talented young people have<br />

competed for the honour of representing<br />

their region; two apprentices from each of<br />

our three regions have been selected to<br />

come to the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> where<br />

we stage the live competition.<br />

“The successful apprentices will enjoy<br />

an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2021<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> for the four days.”<br />

The event is being coordinated by<br />

former HVIA director Chris Musch, who<br />

will now oversee the selection process.<br />

“To determine the final teams, all<br />

nominees will sit a two-hour online test,<br />

set by TAFE Queensland SkillsTech,”<br />

Musch says.<br />

“The two apprentices with the<br />

best results in the exam from each<br />

region form the team for their region.<br />

“The teams represent the Eastern<br />

Region, comprising apprentices from<br />

Queensland, New South Wales and the<br />

ACT; Southern Region representing<br />

Victoria, Tasmania & South Australia;<br />

and the North-Western Region from<br />

Western Australia and the Northern<br />

Territory.”<br />

Musch knows first-hand how far an<br />

apprentice’s career can go.<br />

“I started in this great industry as an<br />

apprentice when I was 15, just like our<br />

nominees,” he says.<br />

“It has given me opportunities to work<br />

in many different sectors of the industry,<br />

both here in Australia and overseas, from<br />

the shop floor and into different levels of<br />

management.<br />

“It is also important to acknowledge<br />

the companies that invest in these young<br />

people and the industry’s future.<br />

“Congratulations to all of them for<br />

nominating their apprentices into this<br />

year’s Challenge.”<br />

When<br />

push<br />

comes to<br />

shove<br />

Amongst the raft of events at the 2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> will be a charity fundraising<br />

Guinness World Record attempt for the heaviest truck push by strongman Troy Conley<br />

TROY CONLEY is very strong. Very, very<br />

strong. A quick search of his name<br />

online and you will see him pulling<br />

aeroplanes, semi-trailers and even a<br />

fleet of 16 cars.<br />

There is something incredibly likeable<br />

about the guy, and you don’t have to scratch<br />

the surface far to see what it is. It is what<br />

motivates him.<br />

Over the past couple of years, Conley has<br />

had a lot of attention due to his many amazing<br />

exploits.<br />

He has had more than a fair go at a number<br />

of phenomenal records, so it was inevitable<br />

that a Guinness World Record was going to<br />

feature his name very soon and could very<br />

well be as a result of his next challenge, during<br />

the South Bank <strong>Truck</strong> Festival.<br />

“What’s important for me is the fundraising,”<br />

Conley says.<br />

“That’s absolutely number one. If we<br />

can drive that past $30,000, that would be<br />

incredible. The record is then a nice bonus.”<br />

Conley says that while the challenges are<br />

great fun, they are for a very sombre reason.<br />

“It’s all about helping kids that have been<br />

seriously injured or diagnosed with critical<br />

illnesses like cancer and leukemia,” he<br />

explains.<br />

“Unfortunately, that is what happened with<br />

young Ava. At just two-years-old, she was<br />

diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia and<br />

subsequently lost over 98 per cent of her bone<br />

marrow.<br />

“Thankfully, now, five years on, she’s okay<br />

and in remission, largely thanks to the support<br />

Little Wings, Ronald McDonald House and<br />

Sydney Children’s Hospital offer.”<br />

Last November, Conley was attempting to<br />

break the Guinness World Record for Most<br />

Cars pulled by an Individual with 16 Hyundais,<br />

weighing over 25 tonnes. Unfortunately, he<br />

came up short of the record by five metres due<br />

to a misplaced foot on one of the car’s brakes!<br />

To keep momentum going and keep driving<br />

the fundraising, Conley was looking for another<br />

challenge.<br />

“I’ll be looking to set a new Guinness World<br />

Record for the heaviest truck pushed by an<br />

individual for 100ft (30m). Currently, this is 11<br />

tonnes.”<br />

Well, thanks to Daimler <strong>Truck</strong> and Bus<br />

Australia, we have the vehicle: a 12-tonne<br />

Freightliner Cascadia.<br />

To be eligible for a Guinness World Record,<br />

the area used has to be surveyed by a<br />

qualified surveyor and certified to be within<br />

one per cent of 100 per cent flat. We have<br />

found that surface on Little Stanley Street in<br />

South Bank.<br />

“After the failed world record attempt last<br />

year, I received a message from Ava’s mum,”<br />

Conley adds.<br />

“For all the things I’ve done in my life,<br />

nothing has moved me in the way that did.<br />

“So, now I’m a man possessed, and a man<br />

on a mission, to ensure we reach our $30,000<br />

target.”<br />

It doesn’t do it justice not to include the<br />

whole note from Ava’s mum, Kathy, but here is<br />

a small excerpt:<br />

“Ava and I were chatting about you and she<br />

realised you lived at Ronald McDonald house<br />

as well for a long time when you were little,<br />

then the penny dropped.<br />

“You could see her eyes begin to sparkle.<br />

She asked ‘so I could do that?’<br />

“I think it would be amazing if you could<br />

go and tell all the kids who stay at Ronald<br />

McDonald house your story.<br />

“You understand gratitude like we do; it is<br />

this level of gratitude we have for you today for<br />

unlocking our little girl’s potential.”<br />

Conley is truly an inspiring bloke –<br />

passionate, relentless in pursuing excellence<br />

and, most of all, genuinely caring.<br />

“Going the extra mile like I am at the<br />

moment to help the community, to allow kids<br />

like Ava to be able to follow their dreams, and<br />

support families like hers when they need it<br />

the most; that’s all I need,” Conley says.<br />

Make sure you are there to support Conley<br />

on Friday morning, May 14.<br />

You can make a pledge or a donation to help<br />

Conley reach that target on the BTS website:<br />

Restoration<br />

masterpiece<br />

In 1968, our classic Thornycoft A2 made the<br />

perfect stage for the opening ceremony of the very<br />

first Queensland <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong><br />

THE COLLABORATION between local<br />

industry members was the precursor to<br />

the formation of the HVIA’s predecessor,<br />

the Commercial Vehicle Industry<br />

Association of Queensland.<br />

It looks like we are rebuilding the old girl from<br />

the ground-up with its shiny new tyres fitted to<br />

freshly painted wheels and now attached to a<br />

stunningly restored chassis.<br />

Next is the tray and, alongside that, the talented students at TAFE Skills Tech<br />

Queensland are restoring and reconstructing the radiator. TAFE Queensland<br />

SkillsTech is, quite literally, forging forward with the Thornycroft restoration<br />

project. Parts for a 1926 Thornycroft A2 are not easily sourced at your local<br />

auto shop; in fact, many of her original components were handmade. A new<br />

engine fan, headlight rim and steering wheel have been cast at TAFE’s foundry<br />

in Acacia Ridge, with the use of Ron Toy’s Thornycroft as a template.<br />

It is all part of our 50th anniversary legacy project, leading towards having<br />

her on display at the 2021 <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>. However, following 95 years of decay,<br />

we need to be patient with the process of bringing her back to her former glory.<br />

We really need to thank Neil Findlay from Findlay Import & Trade, PJ’s<br />

Custom Bodies, Dulux Refinish, Tosca Industries and the team from NTI.<br />



The 2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> will be the seventh held at the<br />

‘world’s best’ <strong>Brisbane</strong> Convention and Exhibition Centre*, located<br />

within the wonderful South Bank precinct.<br />

BTS goes virtual<br />

In the week following the 2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>, an all-new international online<br />

event will take place from Monday, May 17 to Sunday, May 23, 2021<br />

THIS VIRTUAL EVENT will create<br />

a highly interactive experience<br />

to engage more with the brands<br />

you love and will be attended by<br />

visitors from home and abroad.<br />

The pictures alongside this article were<br />

produced as a sample walk-through to<br />

illustrate how the experience would work<br />

for visitors exploring stands, and include<br />

walk (climb)-throughs of trucks. (Thanks<br />

to CMV in Adelaide for helping with our<br />

sample footage).<br />

As you wander through each display,<br />

you will see a variety of clickable<br />

attachments, video interviews and more.<br />

All exhibitors will feature on the maps,<br />

however, a selection of exhibitors have<br />

selected the all-out premium options, so<br />

you can really have some fun with those.<br />

The event will be promoted to<br />

audiences from across international<br />

markets as well as be a home-grown<br />

record of the show.<br />

With no other major international<br />

industry events taking place throughout<br />

2020 and maybe even 2021, all eyes are<br />

on <strong>Brisbane</strong>.<br />

The online version of the show will<br />

be particularly valuable for exhibitors<br />

with international customer bases,<br />

or aspirations to reach into overseas<br />

markets.<br />

Of course, we know some Australian<br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> regulars cannot make it to the<br />

show this year, and, likewise, attendees<br />

that have made it to the show might want<br />

a second look at the products on display.<br />

The event will feature interactive<br />

walk-throughs, guided tours, interviews<br />

and special features and has been<br />

developed as part of HVIA’s strategy to<br />

“As you wander through each display, you will<br />

see a variety of clickable attachments, video<br />

interviews and more”<br />

make the event CovidSafe for everybody.<br />

At the time of publication, we are busy<br />

building content and virtual experiences<br />

for all visitors to explore. This includes:<br />

• A week of BTS TV video podcasts,<br />

webinars and product presentations<br />

• A flyover of the South Bank <strong>Truck</strong><br />

Festival<br />

• A hosted video walk-through of the<br />

show<br />

• The full BTS21 Manufacturers Media<br />

tour<br />

• Walk arounds of all levels of the show<br />

and South Bank <strong>Truck</strong> Festival<br />

• The Civil Construction Field Days heavy<br />

equipment and machinery show<br />

• Product unveilings<br />

• Interviews with MDs, engineers and<br />

product designers from leading<br />

companies around the world<br />

• Interviews with BTS21 attendees<br />

• Live entertainment events.<br />

Make sure you jump online in the week<br />

following the 2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong><br />

and explore the industry’s favourite show<br />

from a whole new perspective.<br />

product unveilings, the full manufacturers media tour<br />

COMVEC 2022<br />

Rubber hits the road<br />

It is one thing for road transport operators to see all this technology on display; it is<br />

altogether another to start planning for integrating the equipment into your own fleet<br />

HOW CAN YOU be confident that<br />

the equipment will deliver on its<br />

promise? Will it be backed with the<br />

level of support, parts and servicing<br />

infrastructure necessary to keep<br />

your fleet on the road?<br />

Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA)<br />

is coming to the party with an event that<br />

gives trucking operators the knowledge and<br />

support to take your heavy vehicle fleet into<br />

the new decade and beyond.<br />

It’s an addition to the event calendar that<br />

will provide attendees with everything you<br />

need to know to put that equipment into<br />

your fleet.<br />

ComVec 2022 will take place at the RACV<br />

Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast on May<br />

12-13, 2022.<br />

ComVec 2022 is a practical showcase and<br />

multi-streamed forum of new trucks, trailers<br />

and components led by the experts that can<br />

show operators how to get the most from<br />

them and application of new technology into<br />

their fleets – right now.<br />

The <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> is a great<br />

opportunity to get up close to the absolute<br />

latest in heavy vehicles and everything that<br />

goes into making them tick.<br />

ComVec takes all that to the next level,<br />

exploring everything you need to know<br />

about operating that equipment for your<br />

particular task.<br />

It gives heavy vehicle operators insights<br />

that will make a tangible difference to their<br />

productivity from day one.<br />

Increased productivity means increased<br />

profitability.<br />

Exhibitors will also hold short information<br />

sessions about their vehicles, technology<br />

and components – explaining how the gear<br />

suits your particular task.<br />

ComVec has not forgotten its roots either.<br />

As Australia’s long-standing premier heavy<br />

vehicle engineering conference, ComVec<br />

has always been a unique forum for body<br />

builders to get to know new truck models<br />

and what they are capable of before<br />

designing bodies to suit.<br />

The conference will also feature workshops<br />

addressing technical and regulatory issues<br />

ranging from Australian Design Rules and<br />

the Road Vehicle Standards to access and<br />

ABOVE: ComVec 2022 is led by experts that can show<br />

operators how to get the most from them and<br />

application of new technology into their fleets<br />

performance-based standards approvals and<br />

everything inbetween.<br />

If you operate a heavy vehicle fleet this<br />

event will definitely pay for itself with the<br />

knowledge, networking and ideas that you<br />

will take away.<br />

HVIA<br />

Delivering for industry<br />

The <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> is staged by Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA),<br />

on behalf of its members and the broader industry<br />


representing the interests of<br />

Australia’s heavy vehicle industry.<br />

Australia’s thriving and robust<br />

local industry comprises hundreds<br />

of innovative trailer, specialised vehicle,<br />

component, equipment and technology<br />

manufacturers and suppliers, in addition to<br />

the product assembly of global heavy vehicle<br />

brands such as Volvo, Mack, Iveco, Kenworth<br />

and DAF.<br />

Australia is a world leader in many<br />

aspects of heavy vehicle transport. Australia’s<br />

heavy vehicle industry directly employs over<br />

36,000 people and manufactures, services<br />

and repairs some of the world’s most<br />

efficient, safe, innovative and technologically<br />

advanced vehicles.<br />

HVIA’s membership includes almost every<br />

major truck manufacturer/importer and dealer<br />

network, most of Australia’s major trailer<br />

manufacturers and an ever-growing list of<br />

their suppliers and distributors.<br />

HVIA membership features a strong offering<br />

through a range of benefits, ranging from<br />

advocacy to government and its regulatory<br />

agencies, Tech Assist technical and regulatory<br />

support service, Employer Assist hotline,<br />

regular networking events and information<br />

forums across the country, and world-class<br />

national events: including the southern<br />

hemisphere’s largest road transport event<br />

– the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> and the biennial<br />

ComVec Conference.<br />


HVIA recently celebrated the 50th<br />

anniversary of the Commercial Vehicle<br />

Industry Association of Queensland<br />

(CVIAQ); acknowledging the signing of the<br />

organisation’s original constitution, which is<br />

the same governing document adopted by the<br />

members of HVIA upon its formation almost<br />

six years ago.<br />

HVIA president John Drake reflects on<br />

the legacy of the organisation, paying<br />

tribute to the continuous membership<br />


• HVIA represents and advances the<br />

interests of Australian manufaws<br />

and suppliers of heavy vehicles<br />

and their components, equipment<br />

and technology<br />

• HVIA’s vision is to be “an innovative<br />

and prosperous heavy-vehicle<br />

industry supporting the safest and<br />

most productive fleet”<br />

• HVIA’s objective is to positively<br />

influence the development and<br />

maintenance of policy, legislation,<br />

regulation and technical standards<br />

MAIN<br />

FOYER<br />

ABOVE: CVIAQ early meeting – founding member and<br />

CVIAQ’s first president, Ted Van Fleet (Australian <strong>Truck</strong><br />

Sales), opening the 1970 Queensland <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong><br />

of six companies that joined in 1970:<br />

Haulmark Trailers (Australia); Iveco <strong>Truck</strong>s<br />

Australia; BPW Transpec; Volvo Group Australia;<br />

Russ Engineering; and Penske Transport Group<br />

International.<br />

“I want to take this opportunity to thank<br />

each of these organisations for their ongoing<br />

support and loyalty,” Drake says.<br />

“Fifty years of continuous membership is<br />

rare and a feat worthy of the highest praise<br />

and acknowledgement from HVIA and their<br />

peers.”<br />

Former CVIAQ president Mark Johnston of<br />

Haulmark Trailers adds that HVIA’s formation<br />

was a very important step in the development<br />

and professionalism of the industry.<br />

“The founders and early members of the<br />

CVIAQ had great vision and passion for the<br />

industry,” Johnston says.<br />

“Undoubtedly, the true value of this<br />

association is watching a room full of<br />

industry competitors all working together for<br />

the common good of the industry, not the<br />

individual.”<br />

Michael May, managing director of<br />

Iveco <strong>Truck</strong>s (Australia and New Zealand),<br />

adds that: “We continue to be an active<br />

member because it’s an important platform<br />

to talk about safety, innovation and the things<br />

that are important, not only to our industry<br />

but the broader community as an essential<br />

service.”<br />

Olivia Corrado and Stefan Oelhafen, joint<br />


“The true value of this<br />

association is watching<br />

a room full of industry<br />

competitors all working<br />

together for the common<br />

good of the industry”<br />

managing directors of BPW Transpec, say<br />

that their organisation has been proud to be<br />

associated with the HVIA for 50 years.<br />

“In today’s climate we are aware, more than<br />

at any time previously, of the importance of<br />

industry groups to be the active and effective<br />

voice of its members,” they comment.<br />

Volvo Group Australia (VGA) managing<br />

director Martin Merrick is thrilled to be<br />

celebrating 50 years of ongoing collaboration<br />

with HVIA.<br />

“Our shared values of driving a safer, more<br />

productive transport industry is a key factor in<br />

our successful partnership,” he says.<br />

Penske Australia managing director Hamish<br />

Christie-Johnson explains that Penske’s<br />

longstanding membership has been key to<br />

showcasing its brands to the road transport<br />

industry.<br />

“We look forward to many more years to<br />

come of our membership with HVIA,” he says.<br />

PLAZA<br />

A business with a purpose<br />

For five years NTI has been on course to help find a cure for Motor Neurone Disease (MND)<br />

through restoring vintage trucks, and raffling them off to raise funds for MND research<br />


electric blue Ford Jailbar called<br />

‘Jolene’, is on display, and tickets<br />

on sale, on the Plaza Level for the<br />

duration of the 2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

The truck will be raffled live on Sunday, May<br />

16 at the show.<br />

But how did Australia’s leading truck and<br />

equipment insurer become so committed to<br />

the cause?<br />

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is terminal<br />

and has no cure, so when NTI’s former CEO<br />

Wayne Patterson received his diagnosis in<br />

2015, he reacted the same way he did to<br />

every problem confronting him in life: he<br />

took it on directly.<br />

Even after Patterson’s passing in 2018,<br />

his legacy at NTI is undeniable and,<br />

thanks to his work with the MND and Me<br />

Foundation, will continue to benefit MND<br />

patients and researchers.<br />

“Wayne took over as CEO at a time when<br />

NTI’s survival was questionable,” says<br />

current CEO Tony Clark.<br />

“He inspired people to make the company<br />

work, and the values he put in place are<br />

still here today. That’s why, when Wayne<br />

got diagnosed, we knew he’d want to build<br />

something lasting, something to help. So we<br />

did, in his honour.”<br />


MND attacks the nerves that link the brain<br />

to the muscles – the motor neurones. They<br />

degenerate and die, causing muscles to<br />

weaken and eventually fail. These muscles<br />

include those that control movement,<br />

speech, swallowing and breathing. The mind<br />

and senses are usually unaffected.<br />

50<br />

The average life expectancy after<br />

diagnosis is two to three years. Every day<br />

in Australia, two people are diagnosed, and<br />

two die. Currently, around 2,100 Australians<br />

have the disease.<br />

When Patterson passed, the impact on<br />

NTI was immediate. Even though he’d left<br />

in 2007, he was still fondly remembered<br />

across the country – and the team at NTI<br />

wanted to continue his legacy. They decided<br />

instead of donating money, they would do<br />

something that reflected his values.<br />

“We decided we would really get<br />

involved,” Clark says.<br />

“We could donate money, but we really<br />

wanted to engage the transport, logistics<br />

and construction industries and the<br />

insurance industry.”<br />


The team decided to restore a 1946<br />

International Model K5. NTI team members<br />

Don Greer and Peeter Liiv got cracking.<br />

With NTI’s industry partners on board<br />

to help with the more specialised work<br />

(panel beating, spray painting, etc), they<br />

got the ‘Green Diamond’ back on the road.<br />

Raffled in 2017, with the winning ticket being<br />

drawn in <strong>Brisbane</strong>’s King George Square,<br />

the proceeds – more than $55,000 –went to<br />

MND and Me.<br />

Green Diamond wasn’t a true concourse<br />

restoration, and while the team wanted to do<br />

another like it, they decided to take a more<br />

modern approach.<br />

“That’s where we came up with the idea<br />

of turning new trucks into old trucks,” says<br />

Clark.<br />

More restorations followed, and the<br />

team wanted to make them suitable for<br />

day-to-day running. That’s why they’ve got<br />

modern engines and features such as power<br />

steering, air conditioning and anti-brake<br />

lock systems.<br />

‘Roxanne’, a 1946 Ford Jailbar, was the<br />

next project, and she raised more than<br />

$200,000 for the cause after being raffled at<br />

the 2019 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

Clark notes the team couldn’t have gotten<br />

the trucks on the road without contributions<br />

from our partners, none of whom hesitated<br />

to lend a hand.<br />

“They’ve been very generous with their<br />

time,” Clark says.<br />

“Some of it’s donated, some of it’s at cost<br />

price. Once you let them know what it’s for,<br />

you don’t have to knock on the door twice.”<br />

NTI’s 2021 resto truck, Jolene, is now up<br />

for grabs. Raffle tickets are available online<br />

now at www.nti.com.au/about/community/<br />

win-jolene and every day at the 2021<br />

A<br />

POSITIVE CASH FLOW within your<br />

business is important to maintain<br />

healthy growth. This can be rather<br />

tricky if you need to purchase large<br />

essential assets and equipment for your<br />

business.<br />

However, buying a new or used truck<br />

has never been less taxing with the<br />

federal government’s economic stimulus<br />

packages.<br />

If you have invested in assets for your<br />

business in the past year, the Instant<br />

Asset Write-Off Scheme may help reduce<br />

your taxable income and improve your<br />

cash flow. And if you are considering<br />

making a purchase in the future, you<br />

may be able to reap the benefits of the<br />

Temporary Full Expensing Scheme.<br />

These two government<br />

measures have been introduced<br />

to stimulate growth, investment<br />

and job creation within Australian<br />

businesses.<br />

The Instant Asset Write-Off Scheme<br />

is available to businesses with an<br />

aggregated turnover of up to $500<br />

million and applies to assets up to<br />

$150,000 each in value purchased before<br />

December 31, 2020, and used or installed<br />

by June 30, 2021.<br />

Temporary full expensing was<br />

introduced in the 2020 Federal Budget<br />

and applies to businesses with an<br />

aggregated turnover of up to $5 billion<br />

for new and used eligible assets of any<br />

value purchased and installed by June<br />

30, 2022.<br />

Under the Instant Asset Write-Off<br />

Scheme, any assets bought (totalling up<br />

to $150,000), regardless of whether they<br />

are new or second-hand, can be written<br />

52<br />

off in the same financial year following<br />

simplified depreciation. This may apply to<br />

assets such as:<br />

• light and heavy commercial vehicles<br />

• equipment and machinery<br />

• earthmoving and construction<br />

equipment<br />

• business vehicles<br />

• manufacturing and industrial<br />

equipment<br />

Businesses can also benefit from the<br />

Instant Asset Write-Off Scheme multiple<br />

times. However, it’s important to note that<br />

if the item is also for personal use, you<br />

must apportion that amount and deduct<br />

it from your claim.<br />

The temporary full expensing plan<br />

will apply to new depreciable assets<br />

and the cost of improvements to<br />

existing eligible assets, allowing<br />

businesses to claim an immediate<br />

deduction of the full value of all<br />

new, eligible, depreciable assets of<br />

any value that are first used or installed<br />

before June 30, 2022.<br />

The scheme is essentially a greatly<br />

expanded accelerated depreciation<br />

program that allows businesses to claim<br />

a tax deduction for the full value of the<br />

purchase after its use, rather than claim<br />

depreciation amounts over several years.<br />


Here’s an example. Greg owns a transport<br />

company, Greg’s Transport Pty Ltd, which<br />

has an aggregated annual turnover of<br />

$20 million for the 2021–22 income year.<br />

Greg’s Transport Pty Ltd purchases<br />

a second-hand Kenworth prime mover<br />

for $150,000 exclusive of GST on July 1,<br />

2021.<br />

Under temporary full expensing, Greg’s<br />

Transport Pty Ltd will be able to claim a<br />

deduction of $150,000 for the full cost of<br />

the prime mover in 2021–22.<br />

Paying less tax will improve the<br />

company’s cash flow and help Greg<br />

reinvest and grow his business.<br />


Being able to write-off assets purchased<br />

is all well and good, but if you don’t have<br />

access to the funds to purchase them,<br />

then the scheme won’t be of much use to<br />

your business.<br />

KNOCKING ON THE world’s door 12<br />

months ago was a virus that would<br />

change our everyday lives.<br />

While others languished in their<br />

response, our community rallied.<br />

Thanks to the efforts of freight operators,<br />

businesses and industry, Queensland’s<br />

economy kept moving – with truck drivers<br />

leading the charge, keeping our supermarket<br />

shelves stocked and transporting our<br />

world-class products.<br />

What we saw was Queenslanders<br />

work together to tackle the impacts of a<br />

pandemic that continues to ravage other<br />

countries today.<br />

The heavy vehicle industry’s role in that<br />

effort, working with our government to<br />

establish dedicated freight lanes at border<br />

controls, was critical and helped ensure our<br />

state is today the place to be.<br />

Our collective efforts means the<br />

Palaszczuk Government can now focus on<br />

the state’s economic recovery plan and keep<br />

construction powering on to create jobs.<br />

Over the next decade, the volume of<br />

freight in Queensland is anticipated to<br />

grow more than 20 per cent, which is why<br />

we’re delivering our fifth record roads and<br />

transport program: a $26.9 billion pipeline<br />

of work over the next four years to support<br />

freight efficiency and safety.<br />

While supporting greater productivity for<br />

our heavy vehicle industry, it will also spark<br />

23,600 jobs at a time we need them most.<br />

The vast majority of that investment<br />

– $17.8 billion – will go into roads and<br />

transport outside the south east corner,<br />

making sure from paddock and pit to port,<br />

we’re building better roads.<br />

That is 66 per cent of our road and<br />

transport spend in regional and rural<br />

54<br />

Keeping Queensland moving<br />

Working together with our heavy vehicle partners was key to the pandemic response<br />

communities. This includes our 33 Bruce<br />

Highway projects under way right now,<br />

another 100-plus Bruce upgrades in the<br />

pipeline and $5 billion in joint stimulus<br />

funding between the Palaszczuk and<br />

Australian governments.<br />

It also includes a key $200 million<br />

commitment we made during the election<br />

to build a better Inland Freight Route from<br />

Charters Towers to the border.<br />

Our investment in the Inland Freight<br />

Route will build on $125 million already<br />

locked in between both federal and state<br />

governments for upgrades along the key<br />

stretch.<br />

The Queensland Transport Logistics<br />

Council indicates that a second freight<br />

route will reduce long distance truck<br />

movements on the Bruce Highway<br />

by 49 per cent and deliver potential<br />

productivity gains of 23 per cent.<br />

That means trip savings of up<br />

to four to five hours for heavy vehicles<br />

travelling from far north Queensland to<br />

Melbourne.<br />

We would like to see the Inland<br />

Freight Route designated as a nationally<br />

important transport corridor by the Federal<br />

Government, which could potentially unlock<br />

a $1 billion program of jointly-funded<br />

upgrades. We’re having those discussions<br />

with Canberra now.<br />

In addition to our record investment<br />

in roads and transport infrastructure,<br />

the Palaszczuk Government continues<br />

to deliver on the 36 targets set as part<br />

of our Heavy Vehicle Safety Action Plan,<br />

while also working with industry to develop<br />

new technologies to improve heavy vehicle<br />

rest areas.<br />

My department will showcase the Bruce<br />

FOYER<br />

Highway Rest Area Trial at this year’s show –<br />

a pilot project that applies innovative on-site<br />

intelligent transport systems technologies to<br />

six heavy vehicle rest area locations along<br />

the Bruce Highway.<br />

Heavy vehicle drivers will have advanced<br />

warning signs to provide parking availability<br />

information in real time about 5km out<br />

from the rest area. Solar powered lighting<br />

and CCTV cameras are installed to increase<br />

security for drivers helping them feel safer<br />

while taking a break.<br />

I encourage you to visit the Department’s<br />

stand and find out more about what we’re<br />

doing in this space as well as through our<br />

record $26.9 billion roads and transport<br />

program to support heavy vehicles<br />

across Australia’s longest statecontrolled<br />

road network.<br />

Our Government values the<br />

economic and social contributions<br />

our heavy vehicle industry and its key<br />

representatives like the Transport Workers<br />

Union makes to Queensland.<br />

We look forward to continuing to work<br />

closely with heavy vehicle industry to<br />

support its growth in Queensland and<br />

beyond, and to meet the challenges and<br />

opportunities ahead.<br />

I would like to welcome you all to this<br />

year’s <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> – an event we’ve<br />

been able to host because of your efforts<br />

to manage the COVID-19 pandemic – and<br />

together this industry despite the challenges<br />

of the pandemic.<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

stays strong<br />

Despite seemingly insurmountable odds, the 2021<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> will go ahead with all the optimism<br />

and opportunity that for decades has typified Australia’s<br />

biggest and brightest trucking event. Sure, a few regular<br />

exhibitors may have succumbed to ‘pandemic panic’,<br />

but for the truly faithful and the boldly confident, the<br />

2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> show will be a stunning panacea marking<br />

the start to far better days. Bring it on!<br />

CREDIT WHERE IT’S DUE, Heavy Vehicle<br />

Industry Australia (HVIA) has shown<br />

immense fortitude and remarkable intent<br />

to make the 2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> a<br />

reality.<br />

The challenges have been formidable. First came<br />

an ill-considered and largely egotistical attempt<br />

to end <strong>Brisbane</strong>’s reign as trucking’s premier<br />

showpiece with an alternative event in Melbourne.<br />

Then, of course, came the economic and social<br />

hardships of a global pandemic. Yet, neither has<br />

been enough to stall the association’s determination<br />

to keep this vital biennial show alive and well.<br />


But the greatest credit, of course, goes to the multitude<br />

of exhibitors who have not only refused to fold in fear of the<br />

unknown, but remained intent on showcasing their latest and<br />

greatest products to a trucking fraternity eager for a burst of<br />

glitter after the gloom of 2020.<br />

Indeed, the 2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> will be like no other,<br />

reflecting the true spirit of enduring dedication to an event that<br />

has no equal in the southern hemisphere and is increasingly<br />

regarded as one of the most interesting and innovative truck<br />

shows on the world stage.<br />

In fact, as Europe, Japan and America continue to claw their way<br />

ever so slowly out of the pandemic mire, this year’s <strong>Brisbane</strong> show<br />

will most likely be the only event of its kind anywhere in the world.<br />

The future belongs to those who embrace it, and with the<br />

truck market humming beyond all expectations, there will be<br />

no shortage of big name brands whose dedication to ongoing<br />

development and, critically, loyalty to customers and the industry<br />

at large, will shine in trucks, trailers and trucking equipment of<br />

the highest calibre.<br />

What follows is simply a speculative snapshot of what a few of<br />

the big players might have in store for <strong>Brisbane</strong> in 2021.<br />


At the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> in 2019, Freightliner’s new Cascadia<br />

conventional was a work in progress, still six months away from<br />

an official launch on the Australian market.<br />

Please follow cough and sneeze etiquette<br />



But now, Cascadia is up and running and,<br />

despite the disruptions imposed by a global<br />

pandemic, Freightliner principals certainly won’t<br />

be shy about putting their all-important flagship<br />

front and centre in <strong>Brisbane</strong>.<br />

In fact, Cascadia will be positioned face-to-face<br />

across the aisle from arch-rival Kenworth, leaving<br />

no doubt about Freightliner’s earnest intention to<br />

tackle all and sundry in the conventional class.<br />

Daimler insiders aren’t making any secret of an<br />

intense desire to make <strong>Brisbane</strong> a major showcase<br />

for Cascadia, with particular emphasis on the<br />

model’s impressive powertrain and high level of<br />

standard safety systems.<br />

Consequently, it certainly won’t surprise to<br />

see some extremely well presented and highly<br />

appealing 116 and 126 models staring across at<br />

the Kenworth clan.<br />

We’re also wondering whether the<br />

STAND<br />

41<br />

FOYER<br />

multi-media digital dash display<br />

already available in corporate colleague<br />

Mercedes-Benz might make an<br />

appearance in one of Freightliner’s<br />

show trucks. We’ll know soon enough.<br />

What’s more, it won’t surprise if<br />

Freightliner operatives are confidently espousing<br />

Cascadia’s ability to soon achieve a similar level of<br />

success enjoyed by its Benz brethren.<br />

The lavish Mercedes-Benz display in 2019<br />

was one of the true highlights of the show and,<br />

since then, the three-pointed star has gone<br />

from strength to strength, finishing 2020 in<br />

fourth place on the heavy-duty ladder with a<br />

“It certainly<br />

won’t surprise<br />

to see some<br />

extremely<br />

well presented<br />

and highly<br />

appealing<br />

116 and 126<br />

models”<br />

highly respectable 8.8 per cent of the category.<br />

While there hasn’t been a great deal of news<br />

on new Benz developments in recent times, it<br />

would certainly be naïve to think the German giant<br />

won’t have something special up its sleeve for this<br />

year’s show.<br />

The other big player in the Daimler fold is, of<br />

course, Fuso. The Japanese nameplate is, in fact,<br />

the biggest seller of all three Daimler brands on the<br />

Australian market and, just as it did in 2019, this<br />

year is sure to see a strong presentation of Shogun<br />

heavy-duty models. A new 360hp (268kW) rating<br />

has, for instance, been well received and is sure to<br />

be one of several highlights.<br />

Meantime, soft whispers that Shogun will later<br />

this year be equipped with Daimler’s lively 13-litre<br />

ABOVE: Freightliner Cascadia has big plans for <strong>Brisbane</strong> and beyond<br />

RIGHT: Fuso Shogun is set to shine again but the real star of the future<br />

will be the electric eCanter<br />


engine pushing out 500hp (373kW) or more<br />

had us thinking the new flagship might make an<br />

appearance in <strong>Brisbane</strong>. But it seems not. A tad too<br />

early, according to one source.<br />

However, there’ll be no shock (pardon the bad<br />

pun) to see a number of electric Fuso e-Canters on<br />

show in <strong>Brisbane</strong>.<br />

Fuso is a critical technology base in the Daimler<br />

group’s global development of electric powertrains<br />

and now, more than ever, electric trucks are<br />

gaining the interest of truck operators everywhere,<br />

particularly in city and suburban delivery work.<br />

Kenworth’s new T410SAR. However,<br />

the big crowd-puller for Kenworth will<br />

be a retro ‘Legend SAR’<br />


No doubt about it, 2021 is a big year in the history<br />

of Paccar Australia and the maker of Kenworth<br />

and DAF trucks isn’t about to let the <strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> pass without getting a few major STAND<br />

messages out to the trucking public.<br />

40<br />

For starters, it’s now 50 years since the FOYER<br />

first Kenworth truck was built in Australia<br />

and, since then, the brand has evolved to the<br />

point where it is widely regarded as the premier<br />

brand on the Australian market.<br />

Maintaining its stellar stance in our highly<br />

competitive market means endless engineering<br />

initiative and this year’s <strong>Brisbane</strong> show will feature<br />

Kenworth’s latest effort, the T410SAR.<br />

Utilising the same 2.1 metre-wide cab first shown<br />

four years ago on the T610 and, soon after, the<br />

T610SAR, the T410SAR is effectively the same as<br />

its T410 counterpart, except for a couple of notable<br />

differences, namely a set-forward front axle and a<br />

more traditional hood and grille design.<br />

Like the T410, the new model is<br />

powered by the Paccar MX-13 engine but,<br />

unlike its sibling, the SAR version was<br />

engineered first to produce a modern<br />

car-carrying prime mover before more<br />

typical haulage roles. Either way, the end<br />

result is a truck with broad appeal for a<br />

multitude of tasks.<br />

Coinciding with its 50 years of<br />

Australian truck building, the other big<br />

news on the Paccar front is the company’s<br />

greatly expanded manufacturing<br />

capability at its Bayswater facility in<br />

Victoria. While Kenworth continues to be<br />

the core of Paccar Australia’s operations,<br />

company executives are quick to point out<br />

the recently enhanced factory capacity –<br />

built at a cost of around $40 million – is<br />

also designed to significantly increase<br />

DAF’s presence in the market through<br />

greater local assembly.<br />

As one high-ranking Paccar Australia<br />

representative commented: “DAF these<br />

days fills in the gaps we can’t fill with<br />

Kenworth.”<br />

Thus, it won’t surprise if the continental<br />

“The once-in-a-lifetime Legend SAR will go on sale<br />

for just 24 hours at the <strong>Brisbane</strong> show”<br />

cab-over has a bigger presence on<br />

Paccar’s exhibit than ever before, led<br />

by the locally-assembled CF85 model,<br />

which now not only offers a Euro 6 MX-13<br />

engine out to 530hp (395kW) but also the<br />

new MX-11.<br />

We drove an early MX-11 last year and<br />

can vouch for the engine’s exceptionally<br />

responsive performance at its peak<br />

output of 450hp (336kW).<br />

There are also 370 and 410hp (276<br />

and 306kW) versions, all coupled<br />

to ZF’s Traxon 12-speed automated<br />

transmission.<br />

The biggest crowd-puller of all,<br />

however, will be a truly special truck<br />

known simply as the ‘Legend SAR’.<br />

A retro truck like no other, this latest<br />

recreation of a truly legendary workhorse<br />

is supposed to be a secret but we know<br />

there’s already a model being specially<br />

prepared for the <strong>Brisbane</strong> show.<br />

Like the Legend 900, which in 2017<br />

drew a spectacular response from a<br />

‘one day, one day only’ order period, the<br />

once-in-a-lifetime Legend SAR will go<br />

on sale for just 24 hours at the <strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

show.<br />

Secret or not, word is out and there are<br />

reports of eager truck operators putting<br />

their orders in early. The big question is<br />

‘how many and how much?’<br />

Such is the SAR’s almost mystical<br />

image as Kenworth’s first all-Australian<br />

design, most insiders think the Legend<br />

SAR will easily eclipse 300 orders in one<br />

day. As for the price, it’ll be secondary in<br />

the eyes of many but one thing’s for sure,<br />

it won’t be cheap.<br />

The Iveco X-Way is a major part<br />

of a widely diverse model range<br />


If everything goes to plan, Iveco’s stand will have<br />

everything from a massive Astra 8x8 off-roader to<br />

its recently revamped and highly popular Daily lightduty<br />

range.<br />

The plan, it seems, is to showcase the wide, and somewhat<br />

understated, diversity that exists in the modern Iveco stable.<br />

Now under the guidance of former senior Mercedes-Benz truck<br />

executive Michael May, Iveco Australia finally appears to be in the<br />

process of achieving the stability and opportunities that seem to<br />

have eluded the company in many instances.<br />

STAND<br />

51<br />

FOYER<br />

Yet, unlike the 2019 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>, Iveco’s stand<br />

this year won’t include the International ProStar, following<br />

the decision last year by Navistar in the US to cease<br />

production of right-hand drive models.<br />

Despite the disappointment of ProStar’s demise, Iveco<br />

is intent on showcasing the extent of a diverse model range<br />

that includes the advanced X-Way line-up, the highly versatile<br />

EuroCargo medium-duty contender and almost certainly, the<br />

resilient Acco.<br />

As the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> will demonstrate, there’s far more<br />

to Iveco than initially meets the eye.<br />


Like most of us, 2020 will probably go down as a year<br />

never forgotten but hopefully never repeated for Penske<br />

Commercial Vehicles.<br />

In a difficult market, the three brands under the<br />

Australian arm of automotive mogul Roger Penske found<br />

the going particularly tough, with its premier nameplate<br />

Western Star acquiring just 2.1 per cent of the national<br />

heavy-duty truck market, followed by MAN with 1.7 per<br />

cent and waste collection specialist Dennis Eagle barely<br />

causing a blip on the radar at 0.5 per cent. All up, the<br />

three brands delivered just 461 units in 2020.<br />

But that was last year and it’ll be an<br />

optimistic display on the Penske stand in<br />

STAND<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong> this year.<br />

44<br />

After missing the 2017 show, Penske FOYER<br />

Commercial Vehicles came back in<br />

2019 with a strong presence, attracting<br />

big crowds to its stand, all eager for a close look at a<br />

barnstorming Western Star 6900 roadtrain model and<br />

the broad expanse of a comprehensive MAN line-up.<br />

Don’t be surprised if there’s a similar performance and<br />

an even stronger presence this year.<br />

LEFT: Western Star pulled big crowds at <strong>Brisbane</strong> in 2019 and, despite<br />

slow sales, it’s likely to do the same this year. The brand has plenty of<br />

fans<br />

WITH YOU<br />



Celebrating iconic trailer brands<br />

A pandemic, lockdowns,<br />

economic strife, a golden<br />

harvest season and a rise in<br />

business confidence – the<br />

past 12 months have been<br />

quite a ride. Through it<br />

all, MaxiTRANS customers<br />

have been at the coalface,<br />

continuing to deliver the<br />

needs of the nation<br />

66<br />


has helped get the country through the<br />

worst global pandemic in living memory<br />

and kept our cities, as well as regional<br />

communities, supplied with essential goods.<br />

It’s something we can all be proud of.<br />

Whether it be carting food to supermarkets in<br />

the big cities, sending fruit to markets, moving<br />

general freight between regional centres or<br />

hauling last year’s bumper grain crop to ports<br />

for export, MaxiTRANS’ customers have been<br />

at the heart of it and that is something worth<br />

celebrating.<br />

This year marks 75 years for Australia’s<br />

longest-standing trailer brand, Freighter. In<br />

true MaxiTRANS style, there’ll be nothing selfcongratulatory<br />

in the celebrations, with the<br />

focus kept firmly on the many loyal Freighter<br />

customers and the partnerships forged over<br />

the years.<br />

The story of Freighter will be vividly told at<br />

the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> through a showcase<br />

of customer videos, imagery and a visual<br />

timeline of the Freighter journey. This will be<br />

combined with vintage footage of Freighter<br />

trailers, highlighting many key moments in its<br />

75-year history.<br />

“To know where you’re going you need to<br />

know where you’ve come from,” MaxiTRANS<br />

Managing Director and CEO Dean Jenkins<br />

says.<br />

“We’re proud to be a major part of the<br />

history of Australian road transport through<br />

this iconic trailer brand, and I’m sure our<br />

customers will enjoy looking back at the<br />

journey. It really highlights how far we’ve<br />

come together.”<br />

The Freighter story started back in 1945,<br />

when an entrepreneur named Noel Peel saw<br />

the potential growth in an already successful<br />

trailer manufacturing business started by<br />

Melbournian John McGrath.<br />

Peel set up its company Freighters Ltd<br />

before its first order of business: buying<br />

McGrath trailers. History was made when the<br />

first Freighter trailer rolled off the production<br />

line in Melbourne in February 1946.<br />

Production quickly skyrocketed and, by the<br />

1970s, it’s said that nine out of 10 trailers on<br />

Australian roads were Freighters.<br />

Jenkins says Freighter owes its longevity to<br />

its customers, many of whom are second and<br />

third generation Freighter loyalists.<br />

“That loyalty is never taken for granted,<br />

though. It’s earnt through continual<br />

improvement and innovation. We’re always<br />

striving to meet our customers’ needs, and<br />

that’s why so many customers trust Freighter<br />

to do the job,” he explains.<br />

“We’re proud to be a major part of the<br />

history of Australian road transport through<br />

this iconic trailer brand”<br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> will be a circa-1950s<br />

restored Freighter ‘strap’ trailer. This<br />

historic workhorse normally sits on display<br />

at MaxiTrans’ Ballarat manufacturing facility<br />

and will be making the trip north to <strong>Brisbane</strong>,<br />

where it will provide an eye-catching<br />

counterpoint to a modern-day Freighter<br />

drop deck semi-trailer.<br />

Freighter is just one of many leading<br />

trailer brands that fall under the MaxiTRANS<br />

family banner. Maxi-CUBE, Hamelex White,<br />

Lusty EMS, Trout River, AZMEB and Peki<br />

make up the formidable MaxiTRANS stable and<br />

will be proudly represented at the <strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> through a display of trailers that<br />

celebrates some of the great partnerships<br />

STAND<br />

FOYER<br />

that the company has with its customers.<br />

Also on display is MaxiTRANS’<br />

national retail parts brand, MaxiPARTS,<br />

showcasing the wide range of truck and<br />

trailer parts available, which further<br />

demonstrates the aftermarket support<br />

offered to customers via the MaxiTRANS<br />

national network.<br />

Hamelex White celebrated its 25th<br />

anniversary last year. A key innovator in<br />

research and design, it was the first trailer<br />

manufacturer to engineer blueprint designs<br />

to operate under the performance-based<br />

standards (PBS) scheme.<br />

To help customers understand how PBS<br />

could work for their business, the MaxiTRANS<br />

stand will again be staffed by its in-house<br />

PBS specialists.<br />

“We’re inviting all visitors to come to the<br />

MaxiTRANS stand to talk with one of our<br />

in-house PBS specialists,” Jenkins says.<br />

Hamelex White celebrated its 25th<br />

anniversary last year<br />

“MaxiTRANS has produced more<br />

PBS-approved units than any other trailer<br />

manufacturer. This is an achievement that<br />

we are all very proud of, and thank all our<br />

customers, suppliers and staff for their<br />

ongoing support.”<br />

The future is looking especially bright,<br />

with MaxiTRANS’ new manufacturing facility<br />

at Carole Park in Queensland now up and<br />

running, replacing the existing facility in<br />

Richlands. The new 14,303-square-metre<br />

facility demonstrates MaxiTRANS’ ongoing<br />

commitment to its customers and local<br />

manufacturing, increasing its Australian<br />

manufacturing capability and assisting in<br />

creating 70 new jobs over the next five years.<br />

The new facility is part of the Unite and<br />

Recover initiative set up by the Queensland<br />

government, designed to support Queensland<br />

jobs and industry through the Covid-19<br />

pandemic.<br />

“It’s great news for the economy, great news<br />

for employment and training in this important<br />

industrial hub, and, most importantly, it<br />

will allow us to continue to better serve our<br />

customers and diversify our manufacturing<br />

capabilities,” Jenkins says.<br />

He adds the transport industry remains<br />

a key component of the economic recovery<br />

and has never been more important to the<br />

country.<br />

“People are recognising how essential<br />

transport is in getting goods to where they<br />

need to be. MaxiTRANS is proud to play our<br />

part to allow our customers to continue to<br />

deliver the needs of the nation,” Jenkins says.<br />

“We love partnering with our customers to<br />

help them achieve their goals and we look<br />

forward to seeing all our customers at the<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.”<br />

Protect others and stay at home if needed<br />



The year 2021 marks 75 years since the first Freighter® products rolled onto Australian roads.<br />

It is a history that is clearly as long as it is rich, and that legacy is a key component of every trailer<br />

that rolls off the line today.<br />

Australians connected during the pandemic,<br />

many owners and operators have been<br />

unable to travel to meet customers and forge<br />

those essential interstate relationships, giving<br />

this year’s event the atmosphere of a grand reunion.<br />

Not surprisingly, there’s a lot to catch up on.<br />

Expect to see a focus on improved design and<br />

materials use to give reduced tare weight in trailers,<br />

maximising payload potential.<br />

A bumper grain harvest has driven demand for bulk<br />

haulage agricultural tippers, while improvements are set<br />

to be unveiled in the live bottom sphere.<br />

The strength of Australian manufacturing will also<br />

be a hot topic, with government pandemic-recovery<br />

incentives helping to supporting local jobs. Many leading<br />

players are already talking up big increases on their<br />

order books for home-built trailers, and recruitment<br />

remains strong.<br />

Keep an eye out, as always, for end of financial year<br />

bargains, with the show a great place to do business and<br />

plan for a future that’s looking increasingly bright.<br />

2021 marks 40 years for NSW-based<br />

Muscat Trailers, whose mantra seems to<br />

be never-ending innovation, particularly<br />

in the live floor market.<br />

The 2019 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> saw Muscat<br />

Trailers present a quad dog with a live floor and, this time<br />

round, it’ll be debuting its new quad semi-live floor.<br />

It’s touted as the first of its kind and represents<br />

a major safety breakthrough, taking operators away<br />

from tipper exclusion zones and traffic, eliminating the<br />

associated risks and getting drivers into places they<br />

would never dream of accessing with a tipper (under<br />

bridges, in tunnels, around power lines, in narrow<br />

streets), with materials unloaded by conveyor belt rather<br />

than gravity.<br />

Muscat Trailer’s Nicole Azzopardi says the team is<br />

excited to be exhibiting again after a year of uncertainty<br />

in the industry.<br />

“This is a major show that brings suppliers and<br />

customers together. It will be nice to be back seeing<br />

some old friends, along with some new faces,” she says.<br />


Celebration will be a key theme at the<br />

MaxiTRANS stand, as one of its most<br />

iconic brands, Freighter, turns 75.<br />

different era in trucking, while video testimonials from<br />

loyal customers will highlight the long-standing passion<br />

for the brand.<br />

MaxiTRANS managing director and CEO Dean Jenkins<br />

says the stand celebrates a milestone not just for<br />

MaxiTRANS but for the whole industry.<br />

“There’s a lot of confidence returning to the industry,”<br />

he explains.<br />

“This is a celebration of customers supporting<br />

Australian manufacturing.<br />

We pride ourselves on building trailers in Australia and<br />

supporting Australian jobs.”<br />

That’s only set to increase, too, with manufacturing<br />

well under way at MaxiTRANS’ new Carole Park facility in<br />

Queensland, part of the Queensland Government’s Covid<br />

recovery package.<br />

Bringing Freighter, Hamelex White and Lusty EMS<br />

sideloaders without compromising road<br />

network access.<br />

General manager Grahame Heap says the<br />

new design utilises clever chassis design and<br />

axle groupings that will allow considerably higher<br />

weight limits.<br />

“You can do that by use of quad axles under the<br />

performance-based standards (PBS) scheme, but you<br />

then start to limit yourself as to where you can drive,”<br />

Heap says.<br />

“With this scheme we’re looking at still running under<br />

general mass limits, but with a considerably higher load,<br />

so you won’t need to change schemes.<br />

“The key to this innovation was working out how we<br />

can increase payload while still maintaining a good level<br />

of access. That’s what we’ve been working on and that’s<br />

what we’ve achieved.”<br />

It’s news that’s sure to excite anyone running<br />

intermodal carriers, and all part of the continual<br />

refinement that Hammar work at year after year, it<br />

explains.<br />

Heap says keeping the stand looking fresh is a priority.<br />

“Each <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> we like to bring a new innovation or<br />

design, we like to mix it up. We consider this show the<br />

best single marketing opportunity, particularly when<br />

showcasing new designs and developments. It allows<br />

people to see and touch the product firsthand, to better<br />

understand the improvements,” he says.<br />


Established in 1936, Howard Porter<br />

“It’s all about our customer-driven approach,” Lusty<br />

says.<br />

“We work with the customer to look at the prime mover<br />

they’ll be using in conjunction with the trailer and how<br />

we can customise that trailer to help increase payloads.”<br />

Like many transport operators, GLT experienced a<br />

pandemic boom in business last year, even if there were<br />

challenges procuring stock due to quarantine delays.<br />

“While the country was negotiating the pandemic,<br />

many cropping regions were experiencing a bumper<br />

harvest season due to rain,” Lusty says.<br />

“With government stimulus into these industries<br />

combined with the great harvest season, we had record<br />

production last year. We’re proud to work with other<br />

industries, like farming and mining, to continue to<br />

support Australians in difficult times.”<br />


Australian-built skip loaders and hook<br />

lifts will be on display at the West-Trans<br />

stand, including the DS-80s skip loader<br />

and the new HL-20A hook lift, designed<br />

with lower pedestals and rollers so the bin or<br />

container sits lower than previously, allowing for a larger<br />

payload. It will also be bringing a range of HMF vehicle<br />

loading cranes to display.<br />


The problem of acid corrosion on trailers<br />

The new steel to be used on the entire floor plates of<br />

the four trailers (carrying a payload of up to 141 tonnes)<br />

is touted as prolonging service life on the trailers carrying<br />

THE GONG is all set to sound in the 2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

guidelines in place this year but spirits are high,<br />

with a long list of parts and accessories businesses<br />

looking forward to the opportunity to connect with<br />

visitors and talk about their latest offerings.<br />

Many parts and accessories business managers that we<br />

have spoken to agree that, although Covid-19 created some<br />

uncertainty within the industry last year, particularly around<br />

March and April, from May onwards the industry rallied and<br />

there was a significant increase in demand for safer parts<br />

and more efficient equipment.<br />

Here, we take a look at what to expect at some of the<br />

stands this year.<br />


Findlay will be showcasing many of its 20+<br />

a wide range of steel and alloy wheels,<br />

tyre-fitting machines and those essential<br />

industry – as successful fleet operators for most of those<br />

years through good times and bad – which taught us a lot.<br />

we have you covered.”<br />

(Stand 40) to see all that<br />

is new this year and join<br />

50 glorious years of<br />

manufacturing Kenworth<br />

trucks in Australia<br />

THE PACCAR Australia stand is going to<br />

display some of the company’s newest<br />

and most popular trucks this year.<br />

Among the highlights will be the new<br />

Kenworth T410SAR, which was launched in the<br />

middle of last year.<br />

Purpose-designed and manufactured to<br />

specification with uncompromising quality<br />

at PACCAR’s production facility in Melbourne,<br />

Kenworth trucks are one of the most durable,<br />

heavy-duty trucks ever built and have led the<br />

local market segment for more than a decade.<br />

This year, Kenworth is celebrating 50 years<br />

of manufacturing excellence in Australia.<br />

It was on March 2, 1971 that the first<br />

all-Australian Kenworth rolled off the line at<br />

the Bayswater factory in Victoria.<br />

Fifty years on, 60 models and 70,000 trucks<br />

later, Kenworth is now not only Australia’s<br />

leading heavy-duty truck builder, it has<br />

become an integral part of many Australian<br />

industries, companies and transport families.<br />

The company’s success has been<br />

underpinned throughout by an unwavering<br />

commitment to designing and manufacturing<br />

trucks specifically for Australian conditions.<br />

Also on display will be some of DAF <strong>Truck</strong>s<br />

Australia’s XF and CF models. Released in<br />

February last year, the XF and CF model range<br />

took the Best in Class gong at the 2020 Good<br />

Design Week.<br />

DAF’s XF and CF range trucks are pushing<br />

the envelope of excellence in safety, fuel<br />

efficiency, driver comfort, exterior styling and<br />

cab design for the Australian heavy-duty truck<br />

market.<br />

The team of DAF engineers work<br />

closely with their Dutch counterparts to<br />

validate the trucks for local conditions. Some<br />

of the engineers will be there at the stand to<br />

share their knowledge and offer advice for<br />

customers seeking their right truck for their<br />

business applications.<br />


Combining the best attributes of both a<br />

cab-over and conventional truck, on display at<br />

the stand this year will be the new Kenworth<br />

T410SAR, available with PACCAR Powertrain,<br />

including the MX-13 460hp (340kW) or<br />

510hp (375kW) engine and PACCAR 12-speed<br />

automated transmission. An ideal combination<br />

for single trailer, tipper and dog and a variety<br />

of heavy-duty applications.<br />

Offering better weight distribution with its<br />

set-forward front axle and classic Kenworth<br />

styling, the T410SAR delivers bigger payloads,<br />

a superior driver environment, improved fuel<br />

economy and a greater choice of options.<br />

Other Kenworth models on display will be<br />

a T360 rigid day cab, T610 with 1,400mm<br />

sleeper and Cummins X15 Euro 6 engine, and<br />

the iconic T909 and K200 models.<br />

One of the key design aspects of all<br />

Kenworth trucks is safety. These trucks are<br />

designed, tested and built to weather the<br />

tough Australian conditions. The design and<br />

engineering teams are focused on producing<br />

trucks that have the right engine power,<br />

DAF<br />

DAF <strong>Truck</strong>s Australia will showcase<br />

models from its Euro 6 range. The result of<br />

extensive experience and redesign in Europe,<br />

DAF <strong>Truck</strong>s launched its next generation of<br />

models in Australia early last year – the new<br />

XF and CF range.<br />

The new models feature engine innovations,<br />

new drivelines and aerodynamic optimisations<br />

that significantly reduce fuel consumption and<br />

increase productivity.<br />

They also feature enhanced safety features,<br />

and an updated interior and exterior design for<br />

driver comfort and appeal.<br />

Since the assembly of the first DAF truck<br />

in Australia three years ago, DAF has had a<br />

significant increase in production. In fact, the<br />

number of DAF trucks being produced in the<br />

Bayswater manufacturing facility has doubled<br />

since 2018.<br />

The first model to have rolled off the<br />

assembly line was the CF85 510 FTT model.<br />

Now, the Victorian facility is producing<br />

the CF 530 FTT, CF 480 FTT and CF450 FTT<br />

sleeper cab models from semi knocked-down<br />

(SKD) kits supplied by DAF <strong>Truck</strong>s in The<br />

A customised trailer solution<br />

Graham Lusty Trailers specialises in aluminium trailers built for the Australian market<br />

GRAHAM LUSTY TRAILERS brings you the<br />

most innovative and beautifully-crafted<br />

Australian-made trailers. The Lusty<br />

team has over 100 years’ combined<br />

experience in the aluminium trailer industry,<br />

and with this experience comes the know-how<br />

and knowledge that all customers have<br />

different needs.<br />

“We know our customers and listen to<br />

what they require,” company CEO Graham<br />

Lusty says.<br />

“Everyone needs something a little different,<br />

whether it’s a little bit of extra volume, extra<br />

safety features or just something aesthetic<br />

to suit their style. We customise our trailers<br />

based on the needs of the customer.”<br />

This year at the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>,<br />

Graham Lusty Trailers will have a number<br />

of chassis tippers on display. They come in<br />

a range of sizes and styles, with a range of<br />

tarping systems including manual, electric<br />

or hydraulic roll over, electric retractable and<br />

hydraulic one-piece lids.<br />

Known for being some of the lightest<br />

combinations on the Australian market,<br />

the chassis tippers’ low tare weights help<br />

customers achieve greater profits, the<br />

company notes.<br />

“Our selection of materials, designs and<br />

methods of fabrication give our customers<br />

an industry-leading low tare trailer with<br />

exceptional strength. All designed to help<br />

our customers transport more product,”<br />

Graham Lusty says.<br />

Not only are Graham Lusty Trailers some of<br />

the lightest trailers on the road, they are some<br />

of the safest, with the best quality suspension,<br />

air grain locks, hydraulic diverters and electric<br />

tarps also help improve the safety conditions<br />

for drivers.<br />

Order books are filling fast, with 2021<br />

proving to be another busy year for Graham<br />

Lusty Trailers. As production grows, one thing<br />

is evidently clear – the team continues to be<br />

passionate about building trailers.<br />

Chief business officer Fiona Lusty<br />

explains that the Lusty team is the<br />

reason behind Graham Lusty Trailers’<br />

success.<br />

“We select our team very carefully. To<br />

achieve the level of quality we aspire to,<br />

we need to have the very best people. Our<br />

team are passionate, customer-driven and feel<br />

a sense of pride when drivers come to collect<br />

a customer’s trailer,” she says.<br />

Every trailer is built in <strong>Brisbane</strong> and to<br />

Australian Design Rules standards, to handle<br />

harsh Australian conditions.<br />

Daimler <strong>Truck</strong>s hosts innovation station<br />

The first all-electric truck available in Australia, the smartest cab-over and the<br />

most advanced conventional truck you can buy<br />

DAIMLER TRUCKS and its vast dealer<br />

network can provide solutions to any<br />

transport requirements across all<br />

segments with its Mercedes-Benz,<br />

Freightliner and Fuso brands.<br />

Whether it be a Canter tipper for a local<br />

landscaper, an Actros B-double line-haul truck<br />

or a Cascadia fuel tanker, Daimler <strong>Truck</strong>s has<br />

products for every major segment in Australia.<br />

Even better, customers benefit from<br />

the engineering might of Daimler, which<br />

invests billions of dollars in research and<br />

development every year to stay at the front of<br />

the pack.<br />

Daimler <strong>Truck</strong>s is a pioneer of Euro 6 (and<br />

equivalent) emissions technology in Australia,<br />

delivering improved fuel economy and<br />

reduced emissions across a wide range of<br />

applications since 2016.<br />

Safety is also at the forefront, with<br />

advanced emergency braking systems<br />

(AEBS) technology, which can<br />

automatically brake in emergencies<br />

without driver input, available across all<br />

segments.<br />

Daimler has also rolled out a raft of<br />

technology to aid drivers, including smart<br />

shifting automated transmissions, adaptive<br />

cruise control, improved cabin refinement and<br />

smart displays and controls.<br />

Beyond the metal, Daimler <strong>Truck</strong>s is also<br />

leading the pack when it comes to lowering<br />

the cost of ownership and helping customers<br />

get the most out of their trucks.<br />

There is no better way to celebrate 50 years<br />

of Canter than presenting Australia’s first<br />

all-electric production truck, the eCanter. The<br />

1969 Canter, which was actually sold with a<br />

Dodge badge on the nose, is worlds away from<br />

the near-silent eCanter, which emits zero<br />

local emissions and makes almost no sound<br />

as it leads us all into an exciting new world of<br />

electric freight transport.<br />

Also making its public debut is the Euro<br />

6 Fighter medium-duty, which has been<br />

upgraded with AEBS and lane departure<br />

warning system. It also features a new Euro<br />

6 emission rating, well ahead of the current<br />

Euro 5 requirement. The advanced Shogun<br />

eCanter electric truck<br />

heavy-duty truck is also on hand, with a new<br />

360 model recently added to the range.<br />


The Cascadia, the most advanced conventional<br />

truck in Australia is front and centre. With a full<br />

suite of safety technology and the only driver<br />

airbag in the class, the Cascadia sets a new<br />

bar for safety. It is so advanced it can use GPS<br />

technology to advise the truck when to shift<br />

gears for optimum fuel economy.<br />

Making its debut is the optional electronic<br />

dashboard, which consists of two massive<br />

screens (12-inches [30.5cm] and 10-inches<br />

[25cm]), which set a new standard for<br />

conventional truck interfaces, Daimler says.<br />

These high-resolution screens deliver a<br />

truckload of information and controls with a<br />

system that could be at home in the latest<br />

luxury vehicles, while retaining hard buttons<br />

for the must-have controls, such as climate<br />

control and audio volume.<br />


A truck that actively keeps itself in its lane will<br />

be part of the Mercedes-Benz experience in<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong>. Equipped with level-two automation,<br />

several Actros units are currently being<br />

validated in harsh Australian conditions.<br />

One of these trucks has just participated in<br />

the Great Australian Drive. It is also equipped<br />

with fuel-saving innovations including<br />

predictive powertrain control, which uses GPS<br />

data for optimal gear changes and selects<br />

neutral to coast when safe. Telemetry from the<br />

truck will reveal the amount of ‘free kilometres’<br />

this coasting delivers and will be sure to get<br />

your attention. This technology, along with long<br />

service intervals and proven durability, helps<br />

customers drive down running costs.<br />

Mercedes-Benz will also reveal a major<br />

upgrade for its rigid range, which now comes<br />

with safety pack on all variants.<br />

NHVR<br />

Building a safer, more productive<br />

heavy vehicle industry<br />

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) is looking forward to catching up with<br />

drivers, operators and executives at this year’s <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>, to reflect on the<br />

challenges of 2020 and discuss future safety and productivity opportunities<br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> is always a great<br />

opportunity for us to connect<br />

with the heavy vehicle industry,”<br />

“The<br />

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto says.<br />

“And this year there’s a lot to talk about,<br />

with the Heavy Vehicle National Law<br />

(HVNL) under review and new technology<br />

changing the way we work.<br />

“If you’ve got a question or suggestion<br />

for the NHVR, make sure you visit our<br />

stand and say hi to our team. We’re always<br />

ready to listen and help.”<br />

The NHVR has recently proposed a<br />

number of changes to the HVNL, which is<br />

being reviewed by the National Transport<br />

Commission.<br />

“The law should be simpler and more<br />

flexible, with rules that support operators<br />

that invest in safety and manage risk,”<br />

Petroccitto says.<br />

“We also want to make it easier for the<br />

industry to introduce and operate more<br />

performance-based standards (PBS)<br />

vehicles, including moving mature<br />

designs to the prescriptive fleet and<br />

streamlining approval processes.”<br />

Fatigue management is another<br />

key topic for drivers, operators and the<br />

broader supply chain when meeting with<br />

the NHVR.<br />

“We know fatigue distraction detection<br />

technology (FDDT) is a game changer in<br />

better managing individual driver fatigue,<br />

which is why we’re leading an FDDT pilot<br />

involving 12 operators,” Petroccitto<br />

explains.<br />

“We’re also encouraging drivers<br />

and operators to use NHVR-approved<br />

electronic work diaries, which enable<br />

drivers to record their work hours at<br />

the touch of a button, rather than spending<br />

time ruling lines and counting multiple<br />

STAND<br />

FOYER<br />

time periods on pieces of paper.”<br />

Petroccitto says that NHVR staff<br />

will also be running fatigue choices<br />

sessions throughout the <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong><br />

to highlight the flexibility on offer to<br />

help operators and drivers manage<br />

their fatigue outcomes.<br />

“If you want to take part, just talk to the<br />

NHVR team on the exhibition floor and<br />

arrange a session,” he adds.<br />

“We’ll also have experts on site to<br />

address a range of topics including<br />

access permits, vehicle standards,<br />

Chain of Responsibility, accreditation,<br />

PBS and more.<br />

“We want to hear your thoughts and<br />

ideas about how we can help create<br />

a safer, more productive industry for<br />

everyone.<br />

“I look forward to catching up with<br />

everyone at the show.”<br />

TRUCKS OPERATING in service conditions<br />

that require equal amounts of mileage<br />

on the road as off the road can subject<br />

their tyres to some of the toughest<br />

operating conditions.<br />

Robustness and traction are the main<br />

tyre characteristics that are crucial in these<br />

applications. However, traction-optimised<br />

tread designs with wide grooves lead to<br />

greater levels of wear at a faster pace as well<br />

as increased fuel consumption on paved<br />

roads.<br />

For this reason, Continental’s research<br />

and development department in Hanover<br />

designed the all-new Conti CrossTrac<br />

commercial tyre range to overcome<br />

these challenges and to lead the<br />

way for a new generation of on- and<br />

off-road truck tyres.<br />

To fulfil these demanding<br />

requirements and provide the ultimate<br />

balance between on- and off-road<br />

performance, the new Conti CrossTrac tyres<br />

have been developed with an innovative<br />

tread design for excellent on- and off-road<br />

wear performance. By combining different<br />

state-of-the-art compounds for the cap<br />

and base, the new Conti CrossTrac allows<br />

While the base compound is<br />

optimised for low rolling resistance<br />

and high mileage, the cap compound is<br />

designed for optimum traction, outstanding<br />

robustness and impressive chip, chunk and<br />

The result is that the driver can manage<br />

any surface with ease. Even under hard<br />

ZF truck technology<br />

At the 2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>, ZF Services<br />

Australia will showcase the latest products for<br />

the commercial vehicle industry from<br />

ZF and its family of brands<br />


TAKING CENTRE STAGE will be ZF’s TraXon,<br />

the world’s first modular transmission,<br />

which is increasingly selected as original<br />

equipment by commercial vehicle<br />

manufacturers, ZF says.<br />

Light, strong and intelligent, TraXon mates a<br />

basic high-tech automatic transmission with<br />

various setting-off and shift modules.<br />

TraXon offers fuel savings through<br />

its use of operational efficiencies and<br />

refined driving experience, throughout<br />

its GPS-based connectivity.<br />

Arguably one of the most technically<br />

advanced truck transmissions in the world,<br />

says ZF, TraXon was further enhanced in<br />

2018 by the addition of an optional predictive<br />

maintenance function that continually<br />

monitors vehicle operation.<br />

This technology offers fleet operators<br />

the capability of monitoring the condition<br />

of components such as transmission oil or<br />

clutch discs, via the Cloud.<br />

Maintenance can thus be planned<br />

proactively, which in turn could shorten<br />

vehicle downtimes and avoid stranded<br />

vehicles. This has the potential to also reduce<br />

costs and extend the transmission’s service<br />

life at the same time.<br />

With the new predictive maintenance<br />

function, ZF is preparing its successful<br />

modular transmission TraXon for a digital<br />

future in the commercial vehicle industry.<br />

WABCO<br />

ZF Services Australia will also showcase<br />

the latest products from Wabco, the newest<br />

addition to the ZF family.<br />

Displayed will be Wabco’s latest trailer<br />

electronic braking systems (TEBS) along with a<br />

range of accessory systems packaged under<br />

the Intelligent Trailer <strong>Program</strong> (ITP) banner.<br />

Wabco’s TEBS and ITP systems not only<br />

increase trailer safety and stability, but offer<br />

STAND<br />

78<br />

FOYER<br />

rich data and connectivity solutions that<br />

improve fleet’s operations and efficiency.<br />

The acquisition of Wabco was a strategic<br />

decision by ZF as part of its Next Generation<br />

Mobility strategy to develop and deliver<br />

technology solutions that make cars and<br />

commercial vehicles see, think and act in order<br />

to reduce emissions and increase road safety.<br />


Another focus for ZF this year will be its<br />

aftermarket component lines, with displays<br />

focusing on its product brands, Lemförder,<br />

Sachs and TRW.<br />

Lemförder chassis and steering components<br />

can be used as direct replacements, or to<br />

up-spec trucks to increase payloads, reduce<br />

fuel consumption and optimise driver<br />

dynamics.<br />

Sachs shock absorbers are manufactured<br />

to original-equipment specifications and fit a<br />

wide range of trucks and commercial vehicles,<br />

plus trailers, and there’s even a range of units<br />

to suspend the driver’s cab.<br />

Also showcased will be the TRW range of<br />

steering and suspension components.<br />


ZF’s remanufacturing capabilities will also<br />

be highlighted, with ZF Services Australia<br />

offering the market a range of ‘remanufactured’<br />

“ZF’s remanufacturing capabilities will<br />

also be highlighted ”<br />

truck transmissions – all finished to ‘as<br />

new’ original-equipment standards.<br />

‘Reborn’ components such as<br />

transmissions, axles and clutches are<br />

restored using the same manufacturing<br />

production processes utilised in their original<br />

manufacture.<br />

In its remanufacturing process, ZF uses<br />

between 50 and 90 per cent less material<br />

than the production of equivalent new units,<br />

which in turn provides a benefit in reduced<br />

manufacturing energy consumption and CO2<br />

emissions of around 90 per cent.<br />

Globally, ZF brings over 100 years’<br />

experience to the automotive industry and<br />

considers itself to a reputable and reliable<br />

partner through the entire life cycle of its<br />

products.<br />

ZF is the world’s leading integrated systems<br />

provider for commercial vehicle technology<br />

and is well positioned to capitalise on future<br />

demand for autonomous, efficient and<br />

connected commercial vehicles and to create<br />

long-term value and security for its customers.<br />

Moore Trailers is showing its wide range of<br />

tipper trailers at the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong><br />


Proudly Australian-owned and operated, Moore Trailers<br />

focuses on having a close-knit family dynamic<br />

AMAJOR EXPANSION has been occurring<br />

at Moore Trailers – a 33-year-old proud<br />

family-owned and operated Australian<br />

company.<br />

Situated in Pittsworth, near Toowoomba,<br />

Moore Trailers is a name that is synonymous<br />

with reliability and injects a lot into the<br />

Australian economy.<br />

The company employs 90 people and sells<br />

its trailers Australia-wide.<br />

A new 15,000-square-metre factory next<br />

to its current premises has been built by the<br />

company. Construction began in early 2017<br />

and is now in the final stages of completion.<br />

The new state-of-the-art facility will house<br />

all of Moore’s current production facilities<br />

under one roof – streamlining all of its<br />

production processes.<br />

“We are always looking at improving<br />

productivity and this will nearly double our<br />

production and give us the opportunity<br />

to broaden our product range,” company<br />

spokesman Shayne Moore says.<br />

Moore explains that Moore Trailers’<br />

range of tippers is still popular more<br />

than three decades after the company<br />

commenced operation in 1988.<br />

“We build anywhere from 100 to 200<br />

of our tippers a year for clients in every corner<br />

of the country,” he says.<br />

“Being a very seasonally-demanded<br />

product, we have, in some years, had to turn<br />

a lot of potential customers away due to a<br />

lack of production capacity. Now, once our<br />

new facility is operational, we should be well<br />

equipped to meet this demand.”<br />

A wide range of Moore’s trailers will be on<br />

display at the 2021 <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>,<br />

including bulk tippers, dropdeck-wideners and<br />

converter dollies.<br />

In addition, increasing numbers of scrap<br />

metal recycling businesses are also turning<br />

to heavy-duty Moore scrap trailers for their<br />

volume, strength and longevity – all crucial<br />

aspects for this industry, Moore states.<br />

Moore says that there are numerous<br />

reasons why Moore Trailers are so popular<br />

and highly sought-after. Moore Trailers<br />

has decades of experience in the road<br />

transport industry to drive development and<br />

guide research. The company believes in<br />

LOADMASS is a leader in the supply and installation of<br />

on-board truck scales to the Australian truck market<br />

and the company proudly states this as it has recently<br />

gained Transport Certification Australia (TCA), smart<br />

on-board mass (OBM) Category B type approval. This has<br />

been gained using the LM300 Can-Coder Scale System<br />

developed and tested in Australia in conjunction with the<br />

manufacturer of the Loadman product in the US.<br />

The Category B approval confirms the robust design of the<br />

Loadman product, as it has met all stringent testing requirements<br />

set by TCA for both hardware and software.<br />

Loadmass can also boast that it was the first on-board scale<br />

company in Australia to receive TCA Category A type approval.<br />

The OBM type approval allows Loadmass to provide its customers<br />

seeking higher mass limits access to a scale system that is digitally<br />

connected to Smart OBM systems, allowing not only the recording<br />

of the load, but offers other safety and regulatory information for<br />

compliance purposes.<br />

Road access arrangements for higher mass, such as those<br />

relating to performance-based standards and high productivity<br />

vehicles, may require mass data information to be collected using<br />

a Smart OBM system.<br />

The Loadman LM300 system’s recent approval means its product<br />

is ideal for its customers, who will benefit from the productivity<br />

gains available. The return on investment will come back to the<br />

truck operator in a very short time.<br />

<strong>Show</strong> and, this year, its<br />

showcase is bigger and better<br />

than ever before. Punters will get<br />

the opportunity to browse through<br />

the extensive range of Kenworth, DAF,<br />

PACCAR Genuine and TRP aftermarket<br />

range of products at dedicated digital<br />

kiosks. Furthermore, the PACCAR<br />

Australia stand will be displaying the<br />

latest genuine parts fitted to a selection<br />

of trucks, giving visitors the opportunity<br />

to see product in-situ.<br />

“This year, the PACCAR Australia<br />

stand will feature PACCAR Parts and TRP<br />

product alongside, and fitted to, Kenworth<br />

and DAF trucks,” PACCAR Parts marketing<br />

services and business development<br />

manager Anthony Kwan says.<br />

“Previous <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> stands have<br />

seen a segregation of the brands in their<br />

own space. However, this time, we have<br />

taken an integrated approach where<br />

you’ll see all brands under the PACCAR<br />

Australia umbrella as an integrated and<br />

united front.<br />

“Instead of having our PACCAR parts<br />

and products in a display cabinet, we will<br />

have a selection of truck models fitted<br />

out with these parts so people can really<br />

see how they would look on a truck.<br />

“If any of the parts interest you, feel<br />

Visitors will also be able to learn more<br />

about TRP Parts, which is PACCAR Parts’<br />

in-house aftermarket parts brand that<br />

offers an ever-expanding range of reliable<br />

and quality parts catering to all makes of<br />

trucks and trailers.<br />

“The benefit of TRP over generic<br />

aftermarket products is that, being a<br />

PACCAR brand, our range goes through<br />

that same rigorous testing as you would<br />

expect from PACCAR to ensure that<br />

quality, durability and compliance is<br />

at or above industry standards,” Kwan<br />

explains.<br />

“Furthering that, and also to<br />

demonstrate our commitment to quality<br />

and ensure peace of mind for our<br />

customers, all TRP parts sold are backed<br />

by a 12-month hassle-free warranty.”<br />

Visitors can browse through the entire<br />

TRP range guide at the kiosk at the<br />

PACCAR Australia stand.<br />

TRP products are available at all<br />

59 stores in the PACCAR Parts dealer<br />

network, which includes dedicated<br />

TRP stores in Adelaide, Warrnambool,<br />

Geelong, Somerton, Pakenham and<br />

Roma and Emerald in Queensland.<br />


At the <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> this year, PACCAR<br />

Parts Australia will be launching<br />

the first volume of its brand new<br />

four-part trailer parts catalogue.<br />

“What’s really groundbreaking<br />

about this new trailer catalogue<br />

is that we are compiling all the most<br />

popular trailer parts brands as well as our<br />

own quality aftermarket brand, TRP, into<br />

one catalogue,” Kwan says.<br />

“Visitors can view the catalogue at<br />

our interactive stand and leave their<br />

details to get a copy the moment these<br />

catalogues become available. They’ll<br />

be hot off the press by the time of the<br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.”<br />

This year’s stand will feature a new<br />

PACCAR Parts genuine merchandise<br />

shop that will have on display the new<br />

Kenworth range. The shop will also be<br />

the launchpad for the new DAF range of<br />

quality genuine merchandise, which has<br />

been freshly imported from Europe.<br />

“The stylish new DAF genuine<br />

merchandise range will add a touch of<br />

class to an already classy brand,” Kwan<br />

says.<br />


“We will also have some privileges<br />

member discounts on the official<br />

Going strong<br />

With decades of experience but an eye one the<br />

future, Hydreco Powauto is keen to show the<br />

latest developments in power take-offs (PTOs)<br />

IN A FACTORY IN GLADESVILLE, Sydney in 1959, the first Powauto<br />

PTOs were being manufactured. Sixty-two years later, PTOs are<br />

still being manufactured under the Powauto brand and are<br />

still being designed and engineered in Australia to suit the<br />

harshest Australian conditions.<br />

Since those early beginnings in Gladesville, Powauto is<br />

now owned by the multi-national Hydreco group, based out<br />

of Poole in the UK. Now operating as Hydreco Powauto, the<br />

business has expanded to incorporate a complete range<br />

of transport hydraulics, which includes PTOs to suit nearly<br />

all transmissions and applications plus a full range of pumps,<br />

valves, hoists, and oil tanks.<br />

In addition to these hydraulic items, Hydreco offers a range of<br />

complementary items, such as air and electric controls, tail gate<br />

swing and body pivot kits, and tail gate and dolly lock air cylinder<br />

kits.<br />

The Hydreco Powauto brand name has become synonymous<br />

with quality products that can withstand the toughest of<br />

applications but remain innovative with designs.<br />

As less room becomes available on trucks to fit PTOs and<br />

pumps, Hydreco has embarked on a process to reduce size and<br />

weight to make installation not only easier but therefore safer to<br />

fit as well.<br />

For instance, the new 4800 series hot shift PTO, to suit Allison<br />

transmissions, is now 22mm lower in height than the earlier<br />

torque, but offering an extra three ratios. Hydreco Powauto has<br />

been represented at the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> for many years and<br />

is looking forward to this year as an opportunity to present what’s<br />

new in PTOs, valves, hoists, and controls for 2021.<br />



Making trucks safer<br />

Mobileye distributor FleetSafe will unveil the next<br />

generation in advanced driver assistance systems<br />

(ADAS) at this year’s <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong><br />

MOBILEYE, AN INTEL COMPANY, is a market<br />

leader in ADAS, supplying 27 car and<br />

truck manufacturers (OEM) and most<br />

Tier-1 integrators, it says.<br />

Mobileye also offers a range of aftermarket<br />

ADAS solutions, compatible with the majority<br />

of truck models, which can be retrofitted in<br />

only a few hours.<br />

New for 2021 is the Mobileye 8 Series.<br />

Powered by the latest EyeQ4 processor,<br />

Mobileye 8 is smarter, faster and<br />

more accurate than its predecessor, it<br />

says. Incorporating upgraded camera<br />

technology, Mobileye 8 sees further and<br />

wider than previous models, and is now<br />

able to detect pedestrians and cyclist at night<br />

or in low light conditions.<br />

Mobileye uses AI and computer vision to<br />

watch the road in front of the vehicle and<br />

assists the driver in preventing collisions with<br />

other vehicles, motorcycles, pedestrians and<br />

cyclists.<br />

Another safety feature is lane departure<br />

warning – helping combat the affects of<br />

fatigue and distraction and the most common<br />

cause of single vehicle and run-off<br />

fatalities. Mobileye also reads posted<br />

and electronic speed signs, and will<br />

alert the driver when exceeding the<br />

posted speed limit.<br />

Highly anticipated and following<br />

years of development, FleetSafe, the Australian<br />

distributor of Mobileye, will also be showcasing<br />

the Spotto blind spot radar at the <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

Designed and developed in Australia,<br />

for local trucks operating in local<br />

conditions, the Spotto radar uses<br />

high-frequency microwave technology<br />

to monitor the blind area along the<br />

passenger side of a truck.<br />

Scanning an area 3m x 12m into the<br />

adjacent lane and extending forward of the<br />

cabin, the Spotto radar will alert the driver<br />

when other vehicles or motorcycles are<br />

located within the detection zone.<br />

The Spotto radar uses smart algorithms to<br />

differentiate between moving and stationary<br />

objects, and will ignore unwanted objects<br />

like guard rails, barriers and parked cars,<br />

when operating at speeds above 30km/h,<br />


ABOVE: The Mobileye 8 and Spotto radar will be<br />

available to see on FleetSafe’s stand<br />

minimising false alerts, FleetSafe states.<br />

At speeds below 30km/h, the Spotto radar<br />

reduces its detection zone to 1.5m x 3m<br />

and will monitor both stationary and moving<br />

objects, including pedestrians and cyclists.<br />

This function is particularly beneficial when<br />

turning at intersections or maneuvering in<br />

the yard where the driver may not see these<br />

vulnerable road users.<br />

The Mobileye 8 and Spotto radar systems<br />

are are available directly via FleetSafe or<br />

through official resellers.<br />

and how you can upgrade any truck to today’s<br />

safety specs. Or speak with your local truck<br />

TRU-SHU<br />

WITH THE RELEASE of Tru-Shu in<br />

2019, many freight operators<br />

have taken up the opportunity<br />

to keep their fleet on the road<br />

by cutting maintenance costs and<br />

eliminating some common brake defects.<br />

Do you want to join them? Reputable<br />

operators like Whiteline Transport, Stef’s<br />

Transport, Matic Transport, Diamond<br />

Bros and many others are saving money<br />

and time, Tru-Shu manufacturer ASET<br />

Services says. TMC uses Tru-Shu as<br />

original equipment on a range of its axles<br />

and therefore passes on the benefits to<br />

its customers.<br />


For too long the industry has had to put<br />

up with brake shoes that twist out the<br />

side of the drum and need premature<br />

replacing. Excluding the cost of downtime,<br />

replacing one set of brakes is in excess<br />

of $1,000 – usually closer to $1,500 as<br />

drums will need replacing when this<br />

problem occurs, ASET Services says.<br />

Although not all brakes will do this, the<br />

problem can happen on a new trailer on<br />

the first set of brakes. Braking capacity<br />

is reduced and the truck or trailer can<br />

become defective once the brake shoe<br />

is out of alignment. You only need one of<br />

your brakes to do this.<br />

In addition to unnecessary<br />

replacement, the S-Cam can come loose<br />

as a result, smashing into the drum bolts<br />

and disintegrating them.<br />

The team at ASET Services developed<br />

104<br />

More braking, less replacing<br />

Remove the headache of brake defects with the Tru-Shu solution<br />

a solution now known as Tru-Shu – a<br />

patented, tested and engineer-approved<br />

solution to a decades-old problem and a<br />

simple-to-apply, one-off remedy.<br />

For an outlay of a few hundred dollars<br />

per trailer, the problem is instantly<br />

eliminated, it explains. Not just reduced,<br />

but gone for good! Whenever brakes are<br />

replaced, the Tru-Shu will bolt back on<br />

with only the addition of new singleuse<br />

bolts.<br />

ASET Services says that this will<br />

probably be the best return on<br />

investment decision you are ever likely<br />

to make! Consider the costs that will no<br />

longer occur:<br />

• • <br />

All too common, unnecessary<br />

brake shoe replacement<br />

Frustrating downtime<br />

Disruptive major defects<br />

Occasional major damage<br />

to brakes and axles from S-Cam<br />

detachment.<br />

All this benefit for the price of a night<br />

out with the family.<br />

Even if your brakes have started<br />

to twist out the side of the drum, the<br />

application of Tru-Shu will pull them<br />

back into alignment without the need for<br />

replacing the brake shoes or drums.<br />

The shoes will bed back in and you will<br />

get maximum wear out of what is left.<br />

Putting off the decision is only costing<br />

you money, it states.<br />

Don’t wait until the problem has<br />

started. If you are familiar with this<br />

problem, you will know it is just around<br />

“Whether you have one truck or a fleet –<br />

savings are significant and the outlay is<br />

pocket money”<br />

the corner. The best value is to add<br />

Tru-Shu from new or insist your new<br />

trailer comes with it as standard, ASET<br />

Services says. That way you will gain<br />

maximum usage and your brakes will be<br />

the best they can be.<br />

Whether you have one truck or a fleet<br />

– savings are significant and the outlay is<br />

pocket money.<br />


Ken, Gordon, Mitch and the rest of the<br />

team that brought you Tru-Shu have not<br />

been resting on their laurels. Buoyed<br />

by the benefits of Tru-Shu to the fleet<br />

at ASET Services and many others<br />

around the country, they have been<br />

working on a range of brake and<br />

axle products to save their own<br />

business time and money, and to<br />

pass that benefit on.<br />

The brake shoe (currently in trial) is<br />

a changeover brake shoe incorporating<br />

the benefits of Tru-Shu – no twisting<br />

and constant even wear along with other<br />

benefits such as:<br />

• <br />

• <br />

• <br />

Quick change – halve labour costs<br />

when changing brake shoes<br />

Eliminates the need to disturb sealed<br />

bearings<br />

Change over brake shoes available to<br />

cut costs and minimise waste.<br />

The brake drum (currently in trial) is<br />

self-cleaning, which quickly eliminates<br />

water, brake shoe dust, grit and even<br />

gravel, maximising brake power<br />

and leading to longer-lasting brake<br />

components.<br />

The axle (currently in development)<br />

aims to keep your trucks on the road and<br />

out of the maintenance shed. This is done<br />

by developing an axle that halves brake<br />

maintenance, minimises maintenance<br />

and keeps your mechanics free to really<br />

make improvements to your fleet.<br />

Come and see how this is done on the<br />

stand, where ASET Services has a 3D<br />

printed working model of the R&D work on<br />

this project. Some of the benefits include:<br />

• <br />

• <br />

Lubrication improvements<br />

Components interchangeable with drive<br />

axles<br />

Modular components that allow<br />

maintenance without disturbing hubs<br />

and bearings<br />

• Elimination of wear on some parts such<br />

as the axle thread<br />

• Simplification of changing wheels and<br />

tyres.<br />

Finally, a steel spring over air springs<br />

suspension is in development that aims<br />

to achieve easier maintenance and<br />

greater stability, combined with a softer<br />

ride and increased adjustability for<br />

aligning with loading docks.<br />

Velocity boost for Daimler <strong>Truck</strong>s<br />

Daimler <strong>Truck</strong> and Bus has further strengthened its Australian dealership network with<br />

the arrival of Velocity Vehicle Group (VVG)<br />

VVG IS ONE of the largest Daimler <strong>Truck</strong>s<br />

dealership networks globally, proving<br />

its customer dedication across 38<br />

dealership locations spanning the<br />

American southwest.<br />

VVG represents only Daimler truck brands,<br />

ensuring a sharp focus on the needs of its<br />

customers at its 15 Australian dealerships.<br />

Daimler <strong>Truck</strong> and Bus president and CEO<br />

Daniel Whitehead says the arrival of VVG is<br />

a big plus for Daimler truck customers in<br />

Australia.<br />

“We are extremely pleased to work with a<br />

group that has such an incredible track<br />

record with Daimler <strong>Truck</strong>s in the United<br />

States, which consistently delivers on<br />

a core commitment to commercial<br />

vehicle customers,” he says.<br />

The arrival of VVG, which now operates<br />

dealerships in New South Wales, Victoria,<br />

<strong>Brisbane</strong>, South Australia and Western<br />

for the Daimler <strong>Truck</strong> and Bus dealership<br />

network.<br />

These include the recent expansion of RGM<br />

Maintenance Daimler <strong>Truck</strong>s dealerships into<br />

Freightliner Cascadia<br />

was the first conventional<br />

truck to feature AEBS<br />


Safety is front and centre for Daimler <strong>Truck</strong>s and its Mercedes-Benz, Freightliner<br />

and Fuso brands.<br />

Fuso recently became the first manufacturer to offer advanced emergency<br />

braking system (AEBS) technology across the light-, medium- and heavy-duty truck<br />

segments with the arrival of the Euro 6 Fighter. It also fits an AEBS, among other<br />

safety technology, to its Rosa light bus, the only light bus to feature this potentially<br />

life-saving technology.<br />

AEBS helps to avoid, or mitigate, collisions with other vehicles by using a radar<br />

to monitor the road ahead and perform emergency braking in the event the driver<br />

does not.<br />

Mercedes-Benz first introduced AEBS on the Actros in 2010, while the<br />

Freightliner Cascadia was the first conventional truck to feature AEBS and a driver’s<br />

airbag from 2019. Fuso introduced AEBS as standard in the heavy-duty Shogun<br />

cab-over when it was introduced locally in the same year.<br />

Freightliner will also feature an optional seat-mounted airbag for the Cascadia<br />

model on its stand at the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

of ADR 62-compliant towbars, couplings and trailer safety chain systems.<br />

The early years saw Bartlett developing a reputation as a quality trailer<br />

manufacturer to agriculture and road transport.<br />

This experience provided the crucial understanding of vehicle dynamics<br />

and the towing task, laying the foundations that underpin the modern range<br />

of Bartlett products and innovations.<br />

During 2021, Bartlett will shine a light on many different aspects of the<br />

Bartlett business and brand, including product pedigree and heritage.<br />

The 75th anniversary will also look to the future, exploring how Bartlett<br />

continues to shape the industry with products and advice that address<br />

some of the most critical issues in transport, whether that be Chain of<br />

Responsibility, regulations, safety or developing better, stronger and more<br />

efficient towing solutions.<br />

“Today, we are still a proudly family-run business and we want to<br />

celebrate the past, present and future of our company, together with all<br />

those who have worked with us or been a Bartlett customer during this<br />

time,” Bartlett managing director Allan Bartlett says.<br />

Representing the third generation of Bartletts in the business, Allan is<br />

committed to continuing the company’s legacy of innovation, with a strong<br />

focus on the brand’s flagship range of towbars and allied towing solutions.<br />

“Our integrated towing solutions are unique and industry leading,<br />

bringing safety and compliance to the forefront, so that truck dealers,<br />

equipment suppliers, body builders and vehicle outfitters can be assured<br />

that they are meeting their legal obligations,” he says.<br />

the limitations of two channels did not suit<br />

Australian multi-vehicle combinations, such<br />

as B-doubles, road trains, and truck-and-dog<br />

trailer combinations.<br />

With some imported systems, you need to<br />

your particular applications.<br />

The Chek-Way system received Queensland<br />

government written approval in 2010,<br />

leading to the successful implementation of<br />

A-doubles, and many other performancebased<br />

standards/higher mass limit<br />

combinations, Australia-wide.<br />

The new Chek-Way Smart-R Amp passed<br />

TCA Type-A approval for OBM systems in 2018,<br />

and TCA Type-B approval in 2019.<br />

The Smart-R Amp embodies all of the<br />

functions and features of the current TCA<br />

requirements, and future ones as well.<br />

It is also backwards compatible so<br />

that current Chek-Way owners can have<br />

their existing Smart-Amp upgraded to<br />

Smart-R Amp Type-approved specification<br />

at nominal cost, which enables an existing<br />

system to meet both TCA type A and type B<br />

requirements.<br />

With Chek-Way, Tramanco can even upgrade<br />

other systems to meet the same requirements.<br />

AS CONVENIENCE, delivery speed and<br />

efficiency continue to define customer<br />

experience, businesses researching<br />

the suitability of electric vehicles (EVs)<br />

to carry out last-mile operations has also<br />

increased. With convenience taking centre<br />

stage, so does the demand for fast, efficient<br />

and consistent last-mile operations.<br />

EVs are ideally suited to the task. They are<br />

eco-friendly and offer significant cost-saving<br />

benefits to the logistic industry.<br />

EV Automotive is an all-Australian company<br />

entering the commercial fleet space as a<br />

new EV van supplier. In partnership with<br />

Skywell Industries, predominantly an electric<br />

bus manufacturer, it has created products<br />

to enhance the Australian and New Zealand<br />

logistics industry and meet growing corporate<br />

sustainability initiatives.<br />

With full volume Australian Design Rules<br />

certification and compliance now approved,<br />

the EC11 electric van range will be launched<br />

to the Australiasian market at the <strong>Brisbane</strong><br />

<strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

The EC11 is explicitly designed as an<br />

off-the-shelf solution. The E-Cargo does not<br />

need operators to compromise on capacity –<br />

with 12.3 cubic metres of cargo space and a<br />

Drive smart<br />

EV Automotive delivers an electric option for last-mile deliveries<br />

1.7-tonne payload, the EC11 E-Cargo is suitable<br />

for the largest loads.<br />

With a 12-seat capacity, the E-Crew minibus<br />

also promises to provide a viable electric<br />

solution to on-demand operators such as pubs<br />

and clubs for courtesy buses, NDIS providers,<br />

aged care and shuttle transfer providers.<br />

Equipped with a 73.6kWh battery, CCS Type 2<br />

DC charging and a 22kW capacity AC onboard<br />

charger, the EC11 promises to offer the most<br />

flexible recharging options to operators, EV<br />

Automotive says.<br />

A range of between 200–300km (based<br />

on load) offers sufficient route coverage for<br />

daily use. If recharging at night, businesses<br />

can expect to recharge their fleet of EVs<br />

using off-peak power tariffs, thus eliminating<br />

the downtime experienced with daytime<br />

recharging.<br />

Performance has not been<br />

overlooked either—the challenge is to<br />

provide optimal power delivery without<br />

wasting valuable energy reserves.<br />

The EC11 is quick off the mark with<br />

STAND<br />

23<br />

FOYER<br />

a respectable 60kW of power and 350Nm of<br />

torque; this quickly develops into 100kW and<br />

a massive 750Nm of pulling power, which is<br />

almost twice the output of a comparably-sized<br />

diesel competitor.<br />

While all sorts of delivery businesses can<br />

easily implement an EV delivery fleet, the EC11<br />

is most suited to companies that perform<br />

last-mile deliveries within a fixed and limited<br />

radius, EV Automotive says.<br />

More and more businesses are now using<br />

telematics and other artificial intelligence<br />

systems, which can help accurately plan<br />

delivery routes and daily dispatches while<br />

driving smaller distances.<br />

Couple this to using an EV and the costs<br />

savings are even more significant. In the end,<br />

it is all about driving smarter.<br />

In Australia and New Zealand, EVs are<br />

gradually gaining in popularity. Now,<br />

with the introduction of the EC11 to the<br />

commercial market, it is undoubtedly a<br />

worthy investment to consider in 2021<br />

and beyond.<br />

recharging options to operators”<br />

High-purity AdBlue<br />

AdBlue Altra Pure has demonstrated benefits to extending AdBlue components’ life<br />

NEWER DIESEL-FUELLED ENGINES are equipped with<br />

selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology to<br />

comply with tightening emission laws.<br />

Sensors in the exhaust system monitor the<br />

gases and spray AdBlue when required to break down<br />

harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx), converting it to safe<br />

nitrogen and water vapour.<br />

With AdBlue being a relatively young category<br />

worldwide, its real-world application and side effects<br />

are only now being realised.<br />

Current AdBlue standards, tested and certified to<br />

ISO 22241, can still cause general faults, including<br />

cyanuric acid build-up in the muffler, AdBlue pump<br />

failure, AdBlue filter blockages and AdBlue injector<br />

nozzle issues.<br />

VDA-licensed Australian AdBlue manufacturer<br />

AUSblue has invested 18 months in research<br />

and development to produce AdBlue Altra<br />

Pure – a high-purity AdBlue – to address these<br />

problems.<br />

AUSblue CEO Pat Maguire noticed residue<br />

build-up within the SCR system of AUSblue’s own<br />

trucks.<br />

“We began investigating the cause of this residue,<br />

which was creating SCR failures, downtime and repair<br />

costs,” Maguire says.<br />

AUSblue has been producing AdBlue Altra Pure<br />

for over 12 months as its sole form of AdBlue and<br />

has received consistent feedback from customers<br />

of the benefits, with lower maintenance and repair/<br />

downtime costs.<br />

No more polishing alloy wheels<br />

Superchrome wheels take the pain out of keeping your truck looking shiny<br />

IN 2021, SUPERCHROME celebrates 25 years of chroming steel<br />

wheels and 20 years of chroming alloy wheels for the truck, trailer<br />

and bus markets.<br />

Increasing numbers of fleet and owner-driver customers<br />

are converting their existing trucks and trailers to Superchrome<br />

wheels as well as specifying Superchrome wheels for their new<br />

purchases, it says.<br />

The reason for this increasing demand is the growing<br />

awareness of the advantages Superchrome wheels provide<br />

for rigs. These advantages are a combination of presentation,<br />

image and long-term labour and cost savings.<br />

Superchrome wheels are easy to clean and do not need polishing<br />

to give that new shiny finish. The hard Superchrome surface also<br />

increases the life of wheels by reducing wear, it explains.<br />

The added bonus to having Superchrome wheels is the increased<br />

amount of leisure and family time available to drivers who are<br />

responsible for the presentation of their trucks, it states.<br />

Superchrome has invested over one million dollars in research<br />

and development over the years to perfect this revolutionary process<br />

and that is why it is able to offer a ‘world first’ seven-year chrome<br />

warranty.<br />

Superchrome has upgraded production facilities in 2021, for a<br />

third time, and this, combined with operating two production shifts,<br />

will ensure the increasing demand for Superchrome wheels is met,<br />

it confirms.<br />

Superchrome makes its wheels easy to purchase by providing<br />

them to customers by direct shipment to all locations in Australia.<br />

The wheels are also provided to truck dealerships on an exchange<br />

STAND<br />

240<br />

PLAZA<br />

Stop spending hours<br />

polishing, with a new set of<br />

Superchrome wheels<br />

basis. That is, a chrome set of wheels is sent to the dealerships for<br />

a new truck and the alloy wheels being replaced are returned to<br />

Superchrome as an exchange, therefore, the chroming process is the<br />

only additional cost.<br />

New Superchrome wheels are sent to trailer manufacturers when<br />

specified.<br />

Superchrome says that it continues to demonstrate a profound<br />

commitment to an industry that is also a livelihood by ensuring all<br />

orders are delivered on time.<br />

Smart OBM systems are being used to<br />

support new productivity and safety reforms.<br />

If you’re a vehicle or trailer manufacturer,<br />

make sure Smart OBM systems are fitted to<br />

meet your customers' needs.<br />

If you're a transport operator, make sure you<br />

ask for Smart OBM systems if you want to<br />

benefit from higher productivity access<br />

arrangements.<br />

Weigh your options<br />

Smart OBM systems are here, so make sure<br />

you know what you need<br />

SMART OBM SYSTEMS are digitally connected on-board weighing<br />

systems that enable new productivity and safety initiatives using<br />

applications of the National Telematics Framework (NTF).<br />

Smart OBM systems use digital technology to collect and<br />

transmit mass data from vehicles in a reliable and standardised way.<br />

There are different categories of OBM system, but only Category B or C<br />

can generate and transmit data for use with applications of the NTF.<br />

Although Category A OBM systems have been type-approved by<br />

TCA for accuracy and integrity, they do not offer data generation and<br />

transmission capabilities.<br />


On-board mass measurement can be very valuable for supporting<br />

your commercial operations. OBM systems provide you with critical<br />

information about the loading of your vehicles, which is important<br />

to manage safety and regulatory compliance while also maximising<br />

productivity.<br />

Smart OBM systems allow the digital collection and transmission of<br />

data for later analysis and reporting – these smart systems are in use<br />

for a range of road access schemes, permits and national notices across<br />

jurisdictions.<br />

You will need a Smart OBM system if required by a road manager,<br />

regulator or other party that specifies it as a requirement.<br />

These road access conditions include all high productivity freight<br />

vehicles in Victoria and performance-based standards vehicle<br />

combinations in Tasmania. There are also a number of new permit<br />

arrangements in New South Wales and Queensland.<br />

If you are a transport operator, make sure you ask for a Smart OBM<br />

system if you want to benefit from new productivity and safety reforms.<br />

See also the Smart OBM system ‘decision tree’ provided by Transport<br />

Certification Australia (TCA) to guide your choices, which is available at<br />

JAC<br />

JAC trucks plug into an electric future<br />

JAC arrives in Australia at this year’s <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>, with an eye to the future and not the past<br />

The arrival of JAC in Australia, via<br />

highly-experienced bus importerdistributor<br />

BLK Auto, promises a<br />

totally zero emission future for<br />

JAC trucks, with a focus on an efficient,<br />

cost-effective electric trucks in the<br />

light-duty sector.<br />

JAC’s N55 EV electric truck will be on<br />

display at the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>, showing<br />

the deep well of expertise JAC can draw on<br />

as it sets a path to a zero-emission future.<br />

JAC has been producing batteryelectric<br />

trucks in China since<br />

2014, with years of research and<br />

development prior to that. The current<br />

range of electric trucks has been on<br />

sale in China since 2017, satisfying<br />

the drive to zero-emission vehicles in the<br />

world’s most populous nation.<br />

JAC’s range of electric truck platforms<br />

operates across the globe, ranging from 2.5<br />

to 12 tonnes, offering flexible weight and<br />

wheelbase options to suit particular tasks<br />

on the same vehicle frame.<br />

The latest wave of JAC trucks feature<br />

a modern 1,995mm-wide cabin with<br />

comfortable seating space and an<br />

ergonomic dash with a multifunctional<br />

N55EV is a fully-proven electric<br />

light truck with the latest EV technology,<br />

providing a safe, reliable, comfortable,<br />

economic and, above all, a clean emissionfree<br />

truck for a range of city operations.<br />

BLK Auto managing director<br />

Jason Pecotic says the future of road<br />

transport is electric and, rather than<br />

dwell in the past, JAC is very much<br />

thinking to the future needs of a transport<br />

industry that is already demanding<br />

electric vehicles for city-based operations.<br />

“The new JAC N55 EV N55EV boasts either<br />

fast or standard charging, a 200km range<br />

and a 50 per cent lower fuel cost, as well<br />

as a 30 per cent lower maintenance cost,<br />

compared with conventional engine diesel<br />

trucks,” Pecotic says.<br />

“JAC is throwing everything it can at<br />

electrification and is focused on refining<br />

and improving its electric truck offerings,<br />

which is why we are focusing purely on<br />

battery EV.”<br />

The JAC N55 EV uses a 96.7kWh capacity<br />

LFP battery, enabling charging to 80 per<br />

cent in only 1.5 hours and to 100 per cent<br />

in two hours using standard European<br />

CCS2-Combo connections.<br />

BLK Auto’s experience as a specialist<br />

bus importer ensures the service and<br />

parts backup to deliver customer<br />

confidence in Australia.<br />

The JAC N55 EV at the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Show</strong><br />

is one of two trucks initially shipped to<br />

Australia for trials and testing.<br />

Civil Construction<br />

Field Days fills gap in<br />

industry calendar<br />

Just a free shuttle away from the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>, why not drop by the Civil<br />

Construction Field Days to see the latest in the civil construction industry<br />

IT IS OUR PLEASURE to welcome<br />

our local, regional and interstate<br />

visitors to the Civil Contractors<br />

Federation Queensland’s second<br />

Civil Construction Field Days event.<br />

We recognised a few years ago<br />

that there was a significant gap<br />

in the civil construction industry<br />

calendar for an event that brings<br />

together many suppliers to<br />

showcase the latest equipment,<br />

products and services.<br />

Industry has become<br />

increasingly time-poor and events<br />

that can provide purchasers<br />

of construction equipment an<br />

opportunity to see the latest in<br />

technology in one place at the<br />

same time was needed.<br />

This is our second event, with the<br />

first being a standalone event in<br />

2019. This year we have joined with<br />

the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong> to deliver<br />

a larger exhibition of equipment<br />

and supplies relevant to the civil<br />

construction industry.<br />

This event provides a great<br />

opportunity to connect with your<br />

peers and develop relationships,<br />

whilst learning what is new in<br />

industry innovation.<br />

For our visitors who are not in<br />

the industry, the Civil Construction<br />

Field Days will provide a great<br />

insight into the workings of the civil<br />

construction industry. At the Civil<br />

Train booth a representative will be<br />

available to explain career paths<br />

and funding available for those<br />

new to the sector or those existing<br />

workers who want to build on their<br />

skills.<br />

Feel free to engage with the<br />

exhibitors and, if you have any<br />

questions, please talk to one of the<br />

friendly Field Days staff.<br />

This event is proudly supported<br />

by naming sponsor Pickles<br />

Industrial who is the leader in asset<br />

remarketing across industrial,<br />

cars, trucks and salvage. Pickles<br />

Industrial will be conducting a<br />

charity auction as part of the show<br />

with proceeds donated to a local<br />

charity.<br />

In addition to Pickles Industrial,<br />

the event is also supported by TFH<br />

Hire Services who specialise in the<br />

supply of quality temporary hire<br />

products all around Australia.<br />

“The CCF Field D ay is the<br />

highpoint of the Australian civil<br />

calendar and we are very excited<br />

to be a part of it,” TFH Hire Services<br />

general manager Michael Quinn<br />

says.<br />

Enjoy the offerings from Eat<br />

Street at the Trimble Inn and the<br />

many wining and dining options at<br />

Portside Wharf.<br />

If you have started your journey<br />

here, please take advantage of the<br />

free shuttle service to and from<br />

the <strong>Brisbane</strong> <strong>Truck</strong> <strong>Show</strong>.<br />

We hope you enjoy both<br />

events and experience<br />

something new.<br />

“The CCF Field<br />

Days is the<br />

highpoint of<br />

the Australian<br />

civil calendar<br />

and we are<br />

very excited to<br />

be a part of it”<br />

Caterpillar’s cost-effective solution<br />

Hastings Deering has released the Cat® GC range of standard machines<br />

and tools, available at an affordable price<br />

The new Cat GC range of machines<br />

offers a new value proposition for<br />

the more cost-conscious customers<br />


fleet in an effort to keep costs<br />

down, but don’t want to sacrifice<br />

on performance? Here’s some<br />

good news: you have more choices than<br />

ever before when it comes to selecting<br />

equipment that precisely matches your<br />

work and budget.<br />

When you see a Cat machine with the<br />

GC decal, know that these models are<br />

economical, with an attractive total cost<br />

of ownership.<br />

They are proven reliable and durable,<br />

fuel efficient and built to the same Cat<br />

production system standards, as well as<br />

being easy to operate.<br />

This is supported by the Hastings<br />

Deering dealer network and services,<br />

with Cat genuine parts and, of course, the<br />

quality that you know.<br />

Put simply, the Cat GC product line-up<br />

offers a new value proposition for<br />

cost-conscious customers who do not<br />

want to pay for a solution they don’t need.<br />

The GC range complements the<br />

traditional Cat product known as<br />

the performance range, as well as<br />

Caterpillar’s technically advanced XE<br />

premium range, thus enabling customers<br />

to choose across a spectrum of machines<br />

that matches their work and budget.<br />

While some customers want machines<br />

decked out in the latest technology to<br />

give their business a competitive edge<br />

or to compensate for a lack of skilled<br />

operators, plenty of others prioritise<br />

owning and operating costs over<br />

technology.<br />

If you want high-performing machines<br />

that are simple to operate and easy to<br />

maintain, that’s what the GC standard<br />

models deliver: a well-designed, durable<br />

product that offers high fuel efficiency<br />

and low owning and operating costs, all<br />

at an affordable price.<br />

GC models are just as reliable as any<br />

other Cat machine, with no compromises<br />

made in terms of quality or safety. Built<br />

with the same Cat DNA, and backed with<br />

the best dealer network support, you<br />

can be assured quality, reliability and<br />

durability are not compromised.<br />


The Cat GC models are ideal for<br />

applications that do not require the<br />

use of cutting-edge technology like<br />

grade control or onboard payload<br />

weighing.<br />

Therefore, no matter where you<br />

have your machine working, be it in<br />

construction, forestry, demolition or<br />

quarrying, GC is the range for you.<br />

With the GC range, Hastings Deering<br />

are setting a new standard for customers<br />

who value reliability at a low cost per<br />

hour. Fuel competitiveness comes from<br />

lower engine speeds and the range also<br />

SITES<br />

23 &<br />

27<br />

boasts improved fuel efficiency and<br />

effective hydraulic functionality.<br />

The GC range meets the emission<br />

standards without the use of diesel<br />

exhaust fluid (AdBlue).<br />

The GC range includes the following<br />

machines:<br />

• Excavators: 315 GC, 320 GC, 330 GC,<br />

336 GC and 345GC<br />

• Medium wheel loaders: 950 GC and<br />

966 GC<br />

Articulated dump truck: 740 GC<br />

• Soil compactors: CS10 GC and CS12 GC.<br />

Right-sizing your fleet doesn’t have<br />

to mean compromising on what matters<br />

most to your business. Caterpillar’s range<br />

of GC solutions will continue to be<br />

expanded across the product lines<br />

to better serve your needs.<br />

With GC models, you have dozens<br />

of other options at your disposal,<br />
