Ex-PACCAR Australia chief

Bianca De Marco - Friday, August 19, 2016

Ex-PACCAR Australia chief commends Australian trucking

Former Managing Director of PACCAR Australia, Mike Dozier, has commended the Australian road transport industry on its commitment to high productivity vehicle design.

Dozier, who is now serving as PACCAR Vice President and General Manager of Kenworth in the US, told a US industry magazine that his three-year stint down under was an “amazing experience” and that it was “interesting to see Australian trucking up close”.

He explained, “It was the first time in my career I had to work to develop a new network and boost the dealer services and offerings there,” he told Heavy Duty Trucking. “But overall, the markets are very similar. The concerns are the same: Get maximum utilization of our products; make the drivers more comfortable.”

He added, “The biggest difference is how far the Australians have come with B doubles, triples and other heavy-duty vehicle and trailer combinations.

“You have to consider that Australia is the same size as the continental US, but only has a population of 24 million people. So they have to do more with less in terms of equipment. And their businesses are structured to work within those constraints.”

Dozier also mentioned that it is important for Paccar to have a “global reach and outlook”, especially in view of engine technology.

“Our MX engines now have a largely common design across the board. That allows us to develop commonality in our products and leverage our experience worldwide, which is good for economies of scale and reducing product complexities.”

Moving with the times - Hayllar Transport

Sommer Denning - Thursday, July 28, 2016

Hayllar Transport came to Narrandera 53 years ago when Len and Ruby Hayllar saw an opportunity to establish a general carrying business in the center of the Riverina to service Sydney and Melbourne with locally grown produce, timber and flour.

The business has grown over the years along with the growth in output of the Riverina and Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area but the mainstay in their freight is still Flour and Cypress Timber both produced in their hometown of Narrandera. Bernie and Joanne Hayllar have been at the helm for the past 13 years and continue to provide a national connection for our country-based customers with depots in the Capital Cities. 

Over the years Hayllar transport has purchased new and used trucks from Inland Truck Centres. The first truck was the beginning of a long business relationship between Inland Truck Centres and Bernie Hayllar. For almost 30 years, Inland Truck Centres have supported Bernie and Joanne who in turn have supported us. Their continued support of our workshop, spare parts department, sales department and promotional events makes them a very valued customer of our company.

 

From the old days in a K100G in the Northern territory to a T401 pulling triple trailers, Hayllar Transport have had a number of trucks with various configurations.

 

Bernie’s latest truck is a 2016 K200 – another Stretch cab to add to their family of trucks. Chris McDevitt assisted Bernie to spec the 2.8m big cab K200 for his specific application - carting structural steel, with a Cummins 550HP ISX E5 engine, Meritor driveline and an Eaton transmission this truck has the power and capability to haul anything that Bernie can throw at it! The White cabover was custom painted by Auto FX Wagga, with the logo, paint colours and scroll design of Hayllar Transport. With a massive bunk on this K200 and a Viesa bunk air con fitted by Truck Art, the driver will have a comfortable trip and a great nights sleep. This truck has a strong road presence - you won’t miss it coming at night! The lights were configured by Terry Morton Truck Electrics to make the truck visible to others and to give the driver the safest night driving experience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inland Truck Centres looks forward to working with Bernie and Joanne Hayllar on future projects in conjunction with providing them with the support of our workshop and parts departments.

Working in a male-dominated industry is no excuse for the boys at the centre not to show their softer side.

Staff will participate in the national Real Men Wear Pink campaign for the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Friday.

“It’s a well known charity and a lot of people in the community are affected by it,” parts manager Joel Bray said.

Mr Bray said most of the staff are struggling to find pink items to wear but are excited to spread awareness in the community.

“There will be some good costumes on the day,” he said.

A pink-themed barbecue will be held from 12pm to 2pm on Friday.

Taberners

Bianca De Marco - Thursday, June 09, 2016

Taberners is a family owned and operated window company established by Stan Taberner in 1927.

Over the past 89 years, Taberners has continued to supply windows and doors throughout NSW and has seen many changes in the industry.

Changes in window sizes and weights along with the requirement to deliver quality products to a wide geographical range of NSW lead Taberners to add the K200 crane truck to our fleet and believe it will play a vital role in the future of our business.

RSRT

Bianca De Marco - Wednesday, June 08, 2016

The R.S.R.T. is gone…...but not forgotten.  For some, the impacts still linger

because of a job that was lost, a new contract that wasn’t won or finance that couldn’t be obtained.

Labour have committed to bringing the R.S.R.T back so the uncertainty has not gone anywhere.

The Australian Small Business and family enterprise Ombudsman (ASBFEO) is conducting an inquiry into he impact of Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal 2016 Payments Order on owner-drivers.

The Inquiry covers the period leading up to the commencement of the 2016 Order, through to the abolition, and any lasting impact on affected partied.

Over the next few weeks, the ASBFEO is conduction regional consultation sessions to gather information from owner-drivers and their families.

It is convenient for you, Inland Truck Centres urges you to go along and have your say about the impact of the R.S.R.T on your business.
