The Livestock and Rural Transporters Association of Queensland Inc. (LRTAQ) is a peak body for the livestock industry as well as the voice of the livestock and rural transport industry in Queensland.

The association was formed in 1981 to give a united voice to livestock transport operators.  It comprises a committee made up of elected representatives from eight nominated regions and three Field Officers share coverage of the state. This Committee meets regularly to discuss pertinent issues relevant to each district, the state overall and on a national level.

In May 2011, a motion was passed at the AGM to include rural operators in the ordinary member category which has given the association the scope to assist other rural transporters.

The LRTAQ and other state livestock and rural transport bodies are well supported by the national body, the Australian Livestock and Rural Transport Association (ALRTA). Together, we are a formidable group lobbying for the best interests of all members.

Since the inception of the LRTAQ, it has developed and maintained a strong relationship with the State Government of the day. One example of this ongoing association with government has been the Ministerial appointment of the LRTAQ as a representative to the Ministerial Freight Council.  Throughout the years, the LRTAQ has worked continuously to have long-standing connections with various government departments, particularly TMR.

The LRTAQ has built up close working links with the Remote Area Consultative Group (RACG), the Queensland Trucking Association (QTA), the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), AgForce, the Inland Queensland Road Action Plan (IQ-RAP), Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland, local councils and other groups aligned to the betterment of the rural transport industry.

The LRTAQ has national influence through its membership of the Australian Livestock and Rural Transporters Association, which has excellent working relationships with ministers at the Federal level.
