The Australian Trucking Association (ATA’s) TruckSafe board has welcomed two new directors.

Industry expert Peter Elliot and Holding Redlich’s national transport team partner, Nathan Cecil, were appointed to the board last week.

ATA says Cecil and Elliot will work with TruckSafe members to "underscore safe and responsible operations in the industry and help deliver the TruckSafe safety accreditation program".

Cecil, a leading expert in the transport sector, specialises in shipping, logistics, road transport and trade law, and has particular expertise in heavy vehicle regulation and chain of responsibility laws.

He was named one of Australia’s best lawyers in transportation, trade and international arbitration in the 2016 AFR Best Lawyers in Australia guide.

Elliot has been part of the trucking industry for more than 40 years and has worked across numerous operations and industry sectors.

For the past decade, he has specialised in compliance, both as an operator being audited, and as a manager of compliance schemes.

He is the current safety program manager for the Australian Logistics Council (ALC) where he oversees the National Logistics Safety Code and Retail Logistics Safety Code.

TruckSafe chair Ferdie Kroon welcomed Cecil and Elliot to the board.

"Nathan and Peter have a proven track record in this area and will bring a set of strong industry focused skills to the board, as well as fresh views and perspectives to strengthen our team," Kroon says.

"Putting safety first in trucking operations is our priority, and these new appointments will strengthen our capacity to deliver safety outcomes nationally.

"Their skills and expertise in this area will be a valuable addition to the TruckSafe Board, and we are looking forward to working with them."
