NHVR honoured by CILTA nominations


The NHVR has welcomed recognition by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport Australia (CILTA) at their Annual Awards for Excellence today.

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said the win was in addition to being nominated as a finalist in three categories – Excellence in Moving Freight, Excellent in Government Innovation and Excellence in Transport Policy, Planning and Implementation.

“This recognition as winner shows the NHVR’s work is delivering benefits for heavy vehicle safety and productivity,” Mr Petroccitto said.

“The AccessCONNECT Program delivered a new Customer Portal solution which is now used by more than 95 per cent of the NHVR’s permit customers, processing more than 7000 permit applications.

“We have spent time working closely with the heavy vehicle industry to understand what they needed and developed a solution that will deliver time savings and efficiencies to customers.

“It’s a great achievement – well done to all involved.”

The CILTA Awards celebrate the accomplishments of some of the best passenger, freight and defence transport and logistics companies and individuals in the world.

They recognise organisations and individuals that set global benchmarks for best practice in their fields of endeavour and are leaders in their profession, demonstrating world class expertise and innovation in developing and implementing transport and logistics solutions.

“The NHVR’s aim is to safely maximise road access to efficiently carry out the freight task while minimising infrastructure impact and to achieve this we work closely with industry and partner agencies.

“It is the industry and businesses that make up this vital sector who should be congratulated for their ongoing contributions to our nation’s growing economy.”

CILTA’s mission is to provide leadership in research, policy and professional development as well as to support continuous improvement in the Transport and Logistics industry.
