TCA boss to speak at VTA State Conference

  • Posted on Wednesday 17th, May 2017.

The Victorian Transport Association (VTA) has announced that Transport Certification Australia (TCA) CEO, Chris Koniditsiotis, will headline its technology session at VTA State Conference 2017 in Lorne on 4-6 June.

“Chris and the TCA have been great supporters of the VTA, and at a time when operators are so regularly introduced to new technology, it will be great to have an update from the peak body charged with providing advice, accreditation and administrative services in relation to the deployment of telematics and related technology,” said VTA CEO, Peter Anderson.

“Technology can dramatically improve productivity for operators, but naturally comes at a cost. Operators must understand the benefits that technology investments can have for their bottom-line, and the technology session will cover the pace and benefits of recent developments, as well as advice for landing on the right transport technology strategy.”

The session will also feature a panel discussion with leading technology companies Trimble, FleetEffect, Seeing Machines and In-Vehicle Camera Systems, followed by an update from Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT) on the recent commencement of its new fully-automated terminal at Webb Dock.

According to the VTA, details on the full State Conference program will be released in the coming days. Among the confirmed speakers includes Federal Infrastructure Minister Darren Chester, National Transport Commission CEO Paul Retter, and National Heavy Vehicle Regulator CEO, Sal Petroccitto.
