HVIA signs key strategic partnership with NatRoad for Australia’s biggest trucking industry decarbonisation event, TruckShowX 2024
In the first of many big announcements for TruckShowX in 2024, HVIA has signed NatRoad as the official industry association partner for the landmark event.
A spin-off of the hugely successful Brisbane Truck Show, TruckShowX is set to be the biggest trucking industry decarbonisation event held to date in Australia.
To be staged May 13-14, 2024 at RACV Cape Schanck Resort in Victoria, it will explore low and zero-emissions vehicles (LZEV) and technology, and unpack the interconnected ‘ecosystem’ of equipment, infrastructure, services, regulations, policies, and people that must exist for them to work as a solution.
TruckShowX will also provide attendees the opportunity to experience that technology first-hand via a dedicated expo showcasing the latest LZEV vehicles and related products and services as well as on-road driving experiences.
“Partnering with NatRoad for the first TruckShowX in 2024 makes perfect sense,” HVIA’s Chief Technical Officer and TruckShowX Technical Program Manager Adam Ritzinger says.
“TruckShowX is set to be the biggest trucking decarbonisation conference held in Australia to date, and NatRoad is undoubtedly the most proactive transport industry association when it comes to leading decarbonisation …. their recent industry white paper is a clear testament to that.
“I believe in the power of collaboration, and it is an absolute pleasure to welcome NatRoad as a partner. Together with our research partner NTRO, we will ensure that this event delivers real value and has an incredibly positive impact for every facet of trucking and heavy freight transport in Australia.”

NatRoad is Australia’s largest national representative road freight transport operators’ association. It is a not-for-profit association that supports road transport operators, offering business advice, business savings, and partnerships.
“Decarbonisation and managing the transition to low- and zero-emissions vehicles is shaping up as one of our industry’s biggest challenges to date,” NatRoad Chief Executive Officer Warren Clark says.
“TruckShowX 2024 will be a key opportunity to hear from the experts, look into early case studies, experience the technology, network with peers, and exchange ideas.
“Our recent industry whitepaper identified the need for stronger collaboration to enable a cost-effective decarbonisation transition. TruckShowX 2024 is an excellent opportunity for us to get together as an industry and keep the conversation progressing.
“We are delighted to be partnering with HVIA on what will become a landmark event for the heavy vehicle industry.”
