SUPERMARKET CURFEWS TUMBLE | TRANSPORT NEWS

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) has congratulated the NSW and Victorian governments on removing local government supermarket curfews, which will help the trucking industry and supermarkets restock.

The ATA and its member associations collectively represent the 50,000 businesses and 200,000 people in the Australian trucking industry. Together, the ATA and its members are committed to safety, professionalism and viability.

The NSW and Victorian decisions follow similar moves by Queensland and South Australia.

“Our members told us that local government curfews were the single greatest regulatory impediment to restocking Australia’s supermarkets,” ATA CEO Ben Maguire said today.

“The new laws will enable supermarket loading docks to operate 24 hours a day where necessary,” he said.
