TruckSafe welcomes Cavanagh’s Transport and Fechner’s Transport.


TruckSafe has welcomed Cavanagh’s Transport and Fechner’s Transport as the industry body’s two newest accredited members.

"Both Fechner’s Transport and RJ & JM Cavanagh have long been dedicated to doing transport right through their accreditation with TruckCare," TruckSafe chairman Stephen Marley says.

"With the programs coming together, we’re proud to welcome these professional, passionate operators to the TruckSafe family as well," he says.

Fechner’s Transport, established over 80 years ago, offers livestock transport, water and milk cartage, and general freight haulage to the Gippsland area in Victoria.

A former chair of the TruckCare livestock accreditation program and Fechner’s Transport managing director, Kevin Fechner, says the industry’s profile has benefited from TruckSafe and TruckCare involvement.

"There was a need for our industry to work together to raise our profile, and I think that’s been successful," Fechner says.

"Joining TruckCare with TruckSafe is a real plus, and a great opportunity for our industry to link arms and better ourselves."

"Having now implemented TruckSafe in our own business, I particularly think the driver health and medicals are great – our drivers are very important to us.

"I would urge those operators out there who think that ‘it’s too hard’ to reconsider. We’re only a small business, and we only have four employees.

"It’s not beyond the realm of possibility to be accredited, whatever your size."

The second new member, New South Wales-based Cavanagh’s Transport, has been TruckCare accredited since 2004 and transports livestock across the north-west of the state.
