How Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls had a fleet boost

Excerpt from article published on ATN’s website

Details have emerged on the Volvo truck that Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls (PHHG) received at last month’s Brisbane Truck Show.

Volvo Trucks Australia vice president of sales Tony O’Connell handed over the keys to PHHG FH16 CEO Heather Jones in front of the pink-liveried truck, stationed at Reddacliff Place as part of Volvo Group Australia’s display of trucks to promote the show.

“The new FH16 is absolutely wonderful, I’m excited to hop in and drive it home,” Jones says.

A strong proponent of supporting industry skills, Volvo partnered with PHHG in 2016 to support its driver training program in Western Australia, as it looked to increase the involvement of women within the trucking industry.

“The relationship with Volvo Group Australia means the world to me because without their support and sponsorship we wouldn’t be able to do what we do,” Jones says

For Volvo’s part, O’Connell underlines the importance of helping out those striving to better the community.

“We are so passionate about helping Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls because they do such good work in our industry,” O’Connell says.

What this has meant for PHHG’s ability to grow not only its training program, but its output as an active haulage company, is not lost on Jones.
