A reminder that feedback on the Grain Harvest Management Schemes Review Issues Paper closes this week.
NHVR Executive Director Freight and Supply Chain Productivity Peter Caprioli said the paper addressed the different heavy vehicle loading schemes used during grain harvest across Australia.
“There are currently a range of schemes operating nationally with allowances for mass and operational conditions that vary significantly in each state,” Peter said.
“The issues paper looks at the various opportunities and challenges that exist with the current schemes, and options to achieve national consistency.
“Developing a set of national standards has the potential to increase cross-border access, which would help boost regional industries and economies through better connected regions.
“We want to hear from farmers, operators, road managers and drivers about what works well and what doesn’t so that we can get the best outcome for industry.”
Submissions close on October 18. To access the paper and make a submission visit www.nhvr.gov.au/consultation
