Our Objective

Objective is to ensure every truck driver & transport business has a voice to be united for Reform of Transport Industry Sector

Why We Formed This Group for Industry?

Estimated with over 200,000 truck drivers nationally – UTG will provide a strong leadership platform for low cost membership to represent everyone to government with the intention of Reform and Transformation for HV Compliance.
Estimated that 80% are not in any Associations or Unions (so no representation) power of united industry can help government achieve better operating conditions for entire industry sector.
Regulations are complex, inconsistent within jurisdictions, and have multiple variations in regulations crossing boarders to jurisdictions.
Chain of Responsibility is heavily still focussed on the responsibility being enforced onto drivers, with consignors and consignees currently with extremely low enforcement or low prosecutions – the intent of CoR was prosecutions within entire chain – seems to focus on drivers and transport companies.
Fatigue has very limited flexibility with extremely high fines – work diaries are robust to use and, in some cases, attracts fines for non-fatigue mistakes (spelling name of locations wrong) should Standard hours be abolished? Minimum of hour exemption on hours to get to a Fatigue Management Rest location (s) for long breaks –e.g. Home, Service Centre, Depot.
Routes and vehicle combinations are adhoc and extremely expensive to change Prime Mover and Trailer registrations combinations to suit variations in transport operations on demands from customers.
Over Size and Over Mass – vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, time to get permits is too long, time consuming completing applications and complex, so if a route is approved why should Class 1 Period Permits exist at all.
