to Innovation and Change in 2016

The world of transportation and road freight is changing rapidly. New vehicle technologies, new commercial and environmental expectations and new government regulation are all important aspects of our changing world and will have a major impact on New Zealand’s road freight industry into the future.

The 2016 Road Transport Forum Annual Conference will provide you with the opportunity to hear from the experts, innovators and regulators at the forefront of this changing world and discuss with your industry peers what these changes will mean for your businesses and associations.

So please join us in the vibrant port city of Tauranga for what will be an enlightening, informative and entertaining event. We look forward to seeing you there.

Special thanks to Bryce Baird for the use of his video footage.

The 2016 New Zealand Truck Driving Championship will be held concurrently with the Conference and provide delegates with the opportunity to watch some of New Zealand’s top drivers in action.
