  • The Law & Road Transport
  • Infrastructure for Future Freight Movements

“Demand for goods, building materials and the transport and resources is higher than ever thanks to population growth, massive infrastructure projects and growing access to consumer goods from new markets,” said VTA CEO, Peter Anderson.

“Such demand spikes create opportunities and threats for operators, and it is vital they are equipped to handle the associated business challenges.
