The road freight industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in the Australian economy.
Statistics clearly show the industry is fast running out of experienced older truckies – with many handing over their keys before reaching retirement age, due either to poor health, over-regulation or them moving off-road into desk jobs.
The Australian road transport sector has the largest, heaviest road-legal vehicles in the world and is one of the nation's main economic drivers yet till now, little thought has been given to the development of long-term training strategies to ensure an ongoing supply of professionally trained Australian truckies.
Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls are passionate about best practice on-road and workplace safety, increasing female heavy vehicle driver participation rates in the Australian road transport and working to develop a positive industry image.
Your donation – whether in-kind or monetary – will enable us to drive innovation in the industry and continue to plant the seeds necessary to build a sustainable road transport sector into the 21st century. Please contact our office on 1300 1TRUCK for additional information.
Driver recruitment will need to increase by 150% to support increased demand for road freight services
