The former ATANSW is now to be known as Road Freight NSW. It is New South Wales’ own road transport industry member association, providing NSW trucking operators with a voice on issues affecting the transport industry. With a significant focus around the major ports of Newcastle, Port Botany and Port Kembla, Road Freight NSW provides advocacy services, workplace relations advice, industry updates and extensive benefits to its members.
Road Freight NSW says it is an apolitical organisation, dedicated to representing its members in discussions with governments, road freight agencies and other bodies.
“Our members’ united voice is at the forefront of all our discussions with road freight stakeholders,” said Jon Luff, Road Freight NSW Chairman. “We also provide members with essential workplace relations advice and up-to-date industry information. Large or small, our members benefit from our specialisation in road freight transport and understanding of how road freight integrates within the whole supply chain.”
Road Freight NSW General Manager, Jodie Broadbent, has said the organisation will continue to advocate for better treatment for trucking operators, including improving unfair contract terms.
“Over the past few months, I have received a number of disturbing complaints from members who have been the subject of extraordinary lengthy payment terms, up to 120 days,” said Broadbent. “It is our opinion that clients who seek to rip off hardworking operators and their drivers should be dealt the full force of the law.
“Road transport operators are proud to fulfil their workplace remuneration obligations to their employees, but must in turn be afforded reasonable terms by the organisations they serve. We will be increasing our representation in this area as we seek fair treatment for our members.”
