To kick-off the 2021 Brisbane Truck Show, Tiger Spider was presented with a product innovation award from the Heavy Vehicle Industry Association (HVIA) at National Transport Insurance’s swanky new office.
In 2006 the National Transport Commission (NTC) estimated that Performance-Based Standards would account for 12,000 vehicles by 2030. At the end of September 2021 the PBS fleet had reached 13,262 combinations, which is significantly more than those early projections.
Several High Productivity Vehicle (HPV) designs have been added to a new notice released in Victoria to eliminate the need to apply for access when using main routes in the state.
A new notice will give eligible Performance-Based Standards (PBS) vehicles immediate network access when they receive a vehicle approval with a Tier 1 bridge assessment.
The team at Hercules have recently delivered a brand new three-axle dog trailer combination fitted with SAF-Holland disc brakes to Melbourne-based firm, Risha. It’s the first time George Milonakos, who is the owner and founder of Risha, has used an SAF-Holland product in his fleet.
The Victorian Government has added another 700 kilometres of High Productivity Freight Vehicle (HPFV) routes to the pre-approved network which is a win for Performance-Based Standards (PBS).
Transport engineering consultancy, Tiger Spider, has ruminated on whether it is time to implement a new bridge formula in Victoria.
Performance-Based Standards (PBS) vehicles will soon be able to use a broader range of tyres, encouraging the take-up of safer, more-productive vehicles in the Australian heavy vehicle fleet.
Do operators need Performance-Based Standards if they have a road train prime mover? Tiger Spider takes a closer look.
The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) is committed to the ongoing success of Performance-Based Standards (PBS) to ensure it continues to deliver safety and productivity benefits for the heavy vehicle industry.
