Truck manufacturers Isuzu say they will make their debut at this year’s Sydney build expo as it continues to expand through the transport and infrastructure markets.

On June 1st the Sydney build expo will open its doors for decision-makers, buyers and influencers from construction, architecture, transport, and infrastructure.

This year is expected to dwarf previous years outings in both size and scale with well over 30,000 people expected to attend across the two-day event held at the International Convention Centre in Sydney.

This year will mark the first year that Isuzu will be in attendance following a few years of back-to-back record sales.

Isuzu says it is keen to get out and show people exactly what it is that has made them so popular with Australian tradies.

Isuzu will be exhibiting its new ready to work range, one ideally suited for the largely trade focused audience that the event typically attracts.

With many models able to be driven on a car drivers’ licence (up to 4,500 kg Gross Vehicle Mass), and featuring clever, two-pedal transmissions, Isuzu says the new work range is just as easy to drive as the daily commuter—with the added bonus of being safer for the business and far more productive.

On the topic of safety going forward, businesses large and small can all expect to hear much more about the Chain of Responsibility (CoR).

Isuzu says the road transport industry is placing a greater focus on the CoR and the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) are doubling down on efforts to prosecute breaches of legislation governing this.

This poses a significant threat to many businesses though studies shows that small fleets are in a particularly vulnerable position.

As per Isuzu’s Future of Trucking report, 35 per cent of small fleets are completely unprepared for, or unaware of their CoR requirements.

With many trucks able to be driven on a standard passenger car licence, they can even be operated by someone on their probationary plates.

Isuzu says this is often a revelation for owners who can now allow apprentices to drive the Isuzu range of trucks.
