Camlin Transport and Rural Trading will hold industry sway as the Australian Trucking Association’s (ATA’s) newest corporate member. 

Camlin operates across the country, with offices in Sydney, Tamworth, and Brisbane, and specialises in the niche field of cryogenic transport – predominantly bulk and packaged dangerous goods. 

As an ATA member, Camlin can participate in the development of ATA policy, internal committees, and the ATA General Council.  

"Just like the ATA, Camlin has a strong safety focus and an ambition for future viability, assets that will bring immense value to the wider ATA community," ATA chair David Smith says.  

"Membership will also allow for future collaboration opportunities, including grassroots based conversations about safety, conferencing and networking with industry leaders.

As an existing member of ATA member the National Road Transport Association (NatRoad), Camlin’s membership with the ATA will strengthen its position as a proactive industry player.  

"NatRoad offers tremendous value to its members, and in addition to joining the ATA, Camlin has demonstrated its commitment to ensuring our industry remains safe, professional and viable," Smith says.

Camlin’s self-description includes striving to establish itself as an operational partner to its clients in the cryogenic and bituminous industries.

Its primary business goal is to operate and grow in a profitable manner, providing income and stability for its ever-growing employee base. 

A family-oriented business, Camlin is a national carrier that has remained flexible to respond to the changing needs of industry.

This was highlighted in 2020 during the Covid-19 outbreak, when its supply of oxygen to hospitals became critical.  

"Safety is paramount in our operations, in addition to the development of alternative, cost effective methods of product movement," Camlin owner and managing director Gregory Plevey says. 

"With a focus on governance and compliance, Camlin’s decision to join the ATA was founded on our desire to have a seat at the table, particularly in the areas of compliance and training, as well as transport economics." 

Camlin joins Toll, Australia Post, Mainfreight, K&S, Boral and John West Logistics as an ATA corporate member.
