In this issue we feature an extended interview with Volvo Group Australia boss, Martin Merrick, who has had a challenging couple of years at helm of the Australian branch of the Swedish truck making giant but continues with an optimistic outlook on the future of Volvo and its other brands down under.
We also have an in depth look at the completion of the Pacific Motorway and the awful statistics that accompanied the decades of carnage on what was once a road that was woefully inadequate for the task. The procrastination in making it a dual carriageway motorway cost Australia in the enormous number of lives that were lost and the huge inefficiency it bound out transport system in for decades. But now thankfully it is complete.
In terms of product stories we look closely at the Hino 500 series GT 4×4, we reveal the new Euro 6 Iveco Daily, there are some operator stories and we road test the massive Chevrolet Silverado as well as LDV’s new Delivery 9 large van.
All that and a whole lot more in this latest issue of Transport & Trucking Australia
