Kevin Fechner says TruckCare will become a voluntary module within the TruckSafe system.


Accreditation program TruckSafe has joined forces with the Australian livestock transport industry’s quality assurance program TruckCare.

They are set to launch a single streamlined program for the road transport industry from early next year.

TruckCare chairman Kevin Fechner says that program will become a voluntary module within the TruckSafe system.

"The Australian Livestock and Rural Transporters Association (ALRTA) developed TruckCare to provide a first class quality management system for businesses that transport livestock in Australia," he says. 

"By incorporating TruckCare as a voluntary module of TruckSafe, we will be reducing overlap and providing better value for trucking operators who put safety first in their business."

TruckSafe chairman Stephen Marley says the ALRTA’s system will integrate well into the TruckSafe program. 

"ALRTA will retain strong involvement with the TruckCare program, nominating two representatives to the TruckSafe board to provide continuing livestock transport input," he says.

Fechner says members of the TruckCare program will be invited to continue their accreditation through TruckSafe in the coming months.  

"We understand that some of our members may have some issues with transitioning to the program. However, we feel that this will provide the best long-term outcomes for TruckCare and our members," he says.
