Jump in PBS approvals

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto says the latest report into PBS approvals demonstrates the success of Australia’s world-leading PBS scheme.

“In 2017, 17 per cent of relevant new heavy vehicles were PBS approved, in 2018 we saw that increase to 20 per cent of relevant new heavy vehicles,” he said.

“PBS vehicles deliver significant benefits to productivity and have been shown to be involved in 46 per cent fewer crashes than conventional vehicles. 

“The success of the scheme over the past decade is a clear statement of the industry’s desire to be safer, smarter and more innovative.”Click here to read the full report
