Public consultation


On 16 May 2016, owner-truck drivers together with representatives from associated industry groups met in Canberra at a roundtable convened by the ASBFEO. The roundtable was held to gather feedback ahead of the ASBFEO’s inquiry into the effect the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal’s (RSRT) Payments Order had on small businesses.

Groups represented at the roundtable: Australian Trucking Association, Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, National Farmers’ Federation, the Council of Small Business of Australia, National Road Transporters Association, Australian Logistics Council, Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia, Trucking Support Agency of Australia, National Road Freighters Association, National Owner Drivers Association and Australian Livestock and Rural Transporters Association.

Other bodies including the Australian Industry Group and the Transport Workers Union were also invited, but were unable to attend.
