Soundtrack to 100 years of Mack Trucks in Australia
Mack Trucks launches its Driving Australia Forward campaign to the iconic hit, Working Class Man.
The campaign celebrates the hard working men and women who have helped build the Mack brand over the past 100 years.
The trucking industry has helped shape our mining sector and made possible some of Australia’s largest infrastructure projects.
Dean Bestwick, Vice President of Mack Trucks in Australia said, “We are proud to feature the iconic song, Working Class Man to help celebrate 100 years of Mack, as well as the contribution the trucking industry has played in building Australia.
“Australia relies on road freight. This campaign is a chance to celebrate the unsung heroes who drive the highways, from the outback to the cities, to keep the country moving.”
Without the trucking industry, Australia would soon grind to a halt.
The industry’s contribution to the nation’s economy is growing, with forecasts showing an increase in demand for road freight over the coming decades.
“Mack Trucks, with its Australian production facility and comprehensive network of service centres, is well placed to meet any future growth in road freight,” Mr Bestwick said.
“However, as an industry we need to work together to look at solutions to issues such as driver shortages.
“Our Driving Australia Forward campaign will hopefully get people talking about the vital role trucking plays in the economy and help attract new ‘working class heroes’ into the industry.”
