The NHVR today launched a national supply chain survey ahead of an education campaign about Chain of Responsibility requirements.
NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto told the Australian Logistics Council's Annual Conference that the online survey will run from September until early October and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
"The survey is aimed at both the heavy vehicle industry and the supply chain throughout Australia," Mr Petroccitto said.
"We need all of industry to be involved, so the right information and tools can be developed and delivered to support business education across the national freight task."
The results of the survey will be analysed and form the basis of the NHVR's Chain of Responsibility education program. The information and guidance material will be used to assist all supply chain businesses to better understand their heavy vehicle safety obligations and to adopt safe management practices.
Mr Petroccitto said the survey forms part of a larger Chain of Responsibility project.
"We are committed to a heavy vehicle industry that delivers the information and tools necessary for managing the ongoing safety and compliance requirements under Chain of Responsibility legislation," he said.
"The survey will be available through links on our website and social media channels as well as through the national bodies and individual emails."
Managing Director of the Australian Logistics Council, Michael Kilgariff said the survey will be an excellent tool to raise a greater understanding of the supply chain and the vital role it plays for our growing freight industry.
"We congratulate the NHVR for this education initiative and look forward to seeing more industry resources in the future," he said.
