The Transpacific Group hopes to get its fleet of waste transport vehicles back on the road in the coming days.

Transpacific Industries and its subsidiary, Transpacific Cleanaway, say that a gradual resumption of waste management services started nationally this morning and the group will be fully operational over the next week, following discussions with the regulator.

The resumption follows a decision by the company to ground its entire fleet nationally in response to Monday’s double fatality at Glen Osmond in South Australia.

"We have made a strong commitment to all our employees, customers, communities, and shareholders that we will operate our fleet safely and to the standards which we expect of ourselves," Transpacific CEO Robert Boucher says.

"I would like to thank all our customers for their understanding and the positive way they responded when we took the decision to ground the entire fleet on Tuesday. We will work tirelessly to clear the back log."

Boucher said yesterday that the grounding had been ordered "to conduct our own internal investigation and satisfy ourselves, the Police and regulators of the roadworthiness of our fleet and the adequacy of our maintenance program".
