As the compliance and regulatory burden increases it’s more important than ever that we have a strong and united voice to advocate for common sense solutions.

 There has never been a more critical time to make sure we have a voice at the table to influence local, state and federal governments about the issues that affect our businesses.

The objectives we are seeking to achieve include:

STRONG representation

To represent the livestock and rural transport industry to government, the business sector and the community

improved PRODUCTIVITY and efficiency

To work collaboratively with government to deliver safer, effective and successful transport services


To work as partners with key industry associations particularly AgForce and the Queensland Trucking Association


To reduce red tape and administrative costs incurring on our businesses


To provide good conditions and a safe working environment for our drivers and other employees


To demonstrate to the community the positive and essential role that rural and livestock transport companies play in the economy and quality of life of all Australians
