Program overview 

Day one:

How to use the full options of the Heavy Vehicle National Law to best manage local freight tasks, reduce red tape for industry and reduce administrative burden on councils

  • IPWEA session  - new CORSaMS (Safety Management System) suite of services to help fleet operators meet their new COR legislative obligations
  • How councils can reduce truck trips on their roads by encouraging greater take-up of the superior productivity and safety features of the heavy vehicles approved under the NHVR Performance Based Standards scheme
  • Field trip on a bus to a crane operator and an Oversize Overmass operator to get a better understanding of the needs of these unique industry sectors
  • Return to NHVR and close out day one with a networking session.  

Day two:

  • Why good access is important to keeping communities thriving – a number of industry sectors will speak on their needs and how we can work together to keep communities strong
  • Showcase of the good things some councils have done to manage their freight task
  • How to get the most out of the NHVR access portal in managing heavy vehicle access applications and freight planning, including some new improvements being released soon
  • Priority actions workshop – what am I going to do to improve access on my council’s road network?
  • Seminar wrap up

This is a national event. Some people have asked if this seminar will happen in other locations; this is the first time the NHVR has done something like this and it would need to be evaluated before considering other locations. So, this may be your only chance to get this intensive two day experience.

If you want to catch up with other subject specialists at the NHVR before or after the seminar to make it worth you attending, the NHVR can arrange this.

The attached flyer has an embedded hotlink for you to check out more info and/or register to attend. The seminar is shaping up as a really worthwhile two days. Places are limited, so don’t delay to reserve your spot.
