Time to recognise leaders, talent and innovation

Nominations for the 2022 HVIA National Awards have opened today.  

HVIA Chief Executive Todd Hacking said HVIA’s annual awards present a valuable opportunity for HVIA members to pause and reflect on the achievements of their organisations and the individuals who inspire their success.

“I encourage all HVIA members to join us in celebrating the dedication, innovation and collaboration that sits behind every success,” Mr Hacking said.

“The 2022 HVIA National Awards are a great opportunity to recognise those efforts and the amazing outputs and outcomes that they have produced.

“The awards include some categories that reflect individual initiative, growth and performance, and others that are designed to acknowledge the achievements of your company’s achievements or perhaps collaborations across teams.”

“Submissions for last year’s awards were a great illustration of the talent that Is so abundant across the length and breadth of Australia’s heavy vehicle industry.

“We saw our next generation honoured though the National Apprentice of the Year Award, won by Daniel Steuten, of Royans, and Peter Langworthy Future Leader Award winner Matthew Longridge, of MaxiTRANS.

“Scania Australia took out the Community Leadership Award (sponsored by Moreton Hire), for their Sustainable products and operations program.

“The Product Innovation Award sponsored by NTI was won by SEA Electric for the first Australian produced all-electric truck.

“And the Safety Innovation Award, sponsored by SafeTstop was won by Driverisk Australia’s AI risk detection solution Drivecam.

“I have no doubt that a similar array of people, products and programs are deserved of the same recognition this year.

“We have also welcomed many new members over the last year and encourage those companies to get amongst the nominations.

“The nomination process is not onerous. It is time very well invested.”

Award categories open include:

The awards portal is set up to allow nominations to be started and completed over the course of the next few weeks, before nominations close Wednesday, 31 August 2022.
