Road

Australia boasts the largest trucks in the world. They are necessary for negotiating our vast land efficiently and economically.

Trucks provide us access to the goods we demand as consumers, playing a critical part in the lifestyle we enjoy in Australia. Even when goods have been transported by rail,sea or air, trucks still play a vital part in the supply chain by transporting these goods to and from railheads and ports. In fact, almost everything we buy or sell has been on a truck.
