In this issue of TTA we have a feast of great reading. Publisher Jon Thomson ventures back to the Pilbara to revisit the Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls.

On a totally different bent we take a look at buying used trucks and in another story we visit VMR Truck Parts, Volvo Groups own used and recycled parts operation in Brisbane.

Compliance is something on everyone’s lips, thanks partly to the horrid truck safety record do late and so in that vein we take a look at industry veteran, Glen Lewis’ new software package to track driver and staff training and competence levels,

We have a couple of strong operator stories in the form of SRV Roadfreight and its Kenworth fleet along with Isuzu fleet, Valley Earthworks from Northern NSW.And in the light commercial realm we test the latest offerings from India and China with the updated Mahindra Pik Up and the new LDV T60 ute, cheap cheerful and both quite capable.

All that and a whole lot more in issue 118 of Transport & Trucking Australia
