Preparing for the future

The trucking industry faces massive change, as new technologies and social trends alter the way our customers expect us to do business.

In this vital session, you’ll hear from keynote speaker Brendan Richards, whose new report on the future of our industry has been previewed by Trucking Australia 2017 media partner Prime Mover magazine.

Brendan is a partner at Ferrier Hodgson and has more than 20 years of corporate advisory and restructuring experience. He’s no stranger to Trucking Australia. In 2013, he led delegates as they worked in a masterclass to save Fictitious Transport, a hypothetical business in diabolical trouble. Watch Brendan’s video.

You’ll also hear from the NTC’s Michelle Hendy, who will talk about what transport regulation could look like, and Warren Smith (DECA) on how to train drivers and staff to work with new technology.

You’ll then get to contribute your views about what the industry and the ATA should do to prepare for these possible futures.
