The ATA says the federal government has done well to investigate AdBlue supply issues in recent times
The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) has responded positively to recent action taken by government bodies regarding the Australian AdBlue situation over the past year.
In its ‘Friday Facts’ newsletter, the ATA congratulated the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water for collaborating and working with the industry on AdBlue supplies.
“Since November last year, the industry has seen a positive response from government working with industry to solve this problem,” the ATA says.
The praise comes after the government department recently ran a Request for Information (RFI) on Australian AdBlue supplies, as it asked the department how it could better help government understand AdBlue storage, stocks and supply chain issues.
The ATA says the RFI also asked respondents about existing sovereign capability investments, as well as new sovereign capability opportunities and projects in the pipeline that can be brought forward.
“It asked what industry is doing to strengthen and diversify supply chains, including from international sources,” the ATA says.
Following this RFI, the ATA says the industry is responding well to the government’s move to prioritise AdBlue supplies.
“The ATA understands there’s been a positive response to this request for information and we look forward to continued good news,” the ATA says.
