HVIA and NatRoad launch TruckShowX

The HVIA and NatRoad have partnered to introduce a new zero-emissions vehicle expo

The National Road Transport Association (NatRoad) and Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA) have teamed up to launch the first edition of TruckShowX in 2024. 

The show, to be held on May 13 and 14 at RACV’s Cape Schanck Resort in Victoria, is a spinoff of the Brisbane Truck Show, with NatRoad signing as the industry association partner for the event. 

A dedicated expo displaying the latest low and zero-emissions vehicles (LZEV), related products, services and on-road driving experiences of these vehicles will be on show throughout. 

NatRoad says that attendees will be able to unpack how equipment, infrastructure, services, regulations, policies and people can work together to help create this decarbonisation solution. 

“NatRoad is undoubtedly the most proactive transport industry association when it comes to leading decarbonisation – their recent industry white paper is a clear testament to that,” HVIA chief technical officer Adam Ritzinger says. 

“I believe in the power of collaboration, and it is an absolute pleasure to welcome NatRoad as a partner of TruckShowX 

“Together, with our research partner NTRO, we will ensure that this event delivers real value and has an incredibly positive impact for every facet of trucking and heavy freight transport in Australia.” 

NatRoad CEO Warren Clark says that decarbonisation and transitioning to LZEVs is shaping up to be one of the industry’s biggest challenges. 

“TruckShowX will be a key opportunity to hear from the experts, look into early case studies, experience the technology, network with peers and exchange ideas,” Clark says. 

“Our recent industry whitepaper identified the need for stronger collaboration to enable a costeffective decarbonisation transition.  

“TruckShowX is an excellent opportunity for us to get together as an industry and keep the conversation progressing. 

“We are delighted to be partnering with HVIA on what will become a landmark event for the heavy vehicle industry.”
