The Australian Trucking Association (ATA’s) Industry Technical Council (ITC) has expanded with the addition of Chris Loose and Danijel Lloyd to its membership base.

Loose and Lloyd’s roles within the ITC will be to work to raise technical and maintenance standards, as well as improving the operational safety of the heavy vehicle sector.  

Loose and has been directly involved with trucks since the mid-1980s, and in his current role as technical officer at the Truck Industry Council (TIC) works around the development of regulations.  

"It was a natural progression following TIC’s membership of the ATA Council, and particularly because the ITC is technical in nature," Loose says on becoming an ITC member. 

"As an ITC member, I hope to contribute to a more professional industry with improved safety outcomes and national consistency."

Lloyd is operations manager at Step Global, where he has worked for more than a decade. 

"Step Global supplies equipment to companies and system integrators. Throughout my career I have worked closely with trucking companies on a number of projects and roll-outs," Lloyd says, pointing to his work on the development of a National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR)-compliant electronic work diary for drivers. 

"My aim is to get a deeper understanding of the needs of the industry and how we can help provide solutions to increase safety and productivity," he says of the ITC. 

ATA chief engineer Bob Woodward says: "The ITC performs a unique service in the Australian trucking industry by bringing operators, suppliers, engineers, and other specialists together in a long-term discussion forum.

"We are very excited to welcome Chris and Danijel to the council and look forward to their contribution to activities.  

ITC today also announces the launch of ITC Technical Bulletins, a new technical resource series. 

"Technical Bulletins are designed to provide best-practice advice in response to industry issues," Woodward says.  

"The first Technical Bulletin we have released outlines the appropriate practices of reliable mass management compliance using air suspensions."
