NatRoad Launch Practical Guide To Reducing Emissions

NatRoad launched a new set of resources at this week’s TruckShowX to inform and guide Australian truck operators to achieve net-zero emissions targets.

The ‘Get Fleet Fit’ initiative is specifically designed for small to medium-sized operators and offers a positive and practical example outlining five steps to enhance fuel efficiency, reduce operational costs and decrease carbon emissions.

“The trucking industry is a significant and irreplaceable arm of the nation’s freight hauling sector. Australia cannot run without trucking, and we will fail to achieve emissions reduction from road freight unless the transition is cost-effective,” NatRoad CEO Warren Clark says.

“Transport customers are increasingly looking to reduce their supply chain emissions, which will increase the need for trucking operators to be able to understand their own emissions and the different strategies for emissions reduction.

“It is these members and operators who are best placed to make the decisions and changes required to ensure they remain viable, while making a real contribution to emissions reduction. That’s the purpose of these resources, to help guide and advise them.”

Understanding the unique pressures and requirements of the trucking sector, NatRoad has developed a series of easy-to-understand fact sheets outlining five practical steps to enhance fuel efficiency, reduce operational costs and decrease carbon emissions.

Clark says it is the first phase of the initiative, with further detailed guides being provided for each step over the coming months.

“Our aim is to not only assist our members to transition to lower emissions, but to also encourage a collective approach among all stakeholders in the industry,” he says.

“While the industry works to drive significant changes internally, we know that comprehensive support from the Federal Government is also crucial. That’s why we are advocating for a robust policy framework and have called for a $3.5 billion fund to help facilitate this vital transition for our sector.”
