One key feature of this year's Heavy Vehicle Outlook Conference (ITTEC) in Melbourne will be the much-anticipated release of truck and trailer production statistics and trends.
Held every two years in Melbourne, the two day event focuses on the future of the heavy vehicle sector over the next five years. It will be held on 13th and 14th March 201, at the Life Saving Victoria Conference Centre in Port Melbourne.
“Australia does not have a comprehensive collection of data for trailers. TIC have done a wonderful job of collecting and publishing truck statistics but trailer data is sadly lacking,” says Dr Peter Hart, Chairman of the Australian Road Transport Suppliers Association (ARTSA).
“This data exists but making it accessible is the challenge. ARTSA is working with Global Trailer Magazine and a number of other partners to put this information on the table. The conference will hear how this is being done and how you can gain access to this valuable data,” said Hart.
