Industry Culture

In order to attract new people in, we want to show that we are a diverse and inclusive industry that welcomes people from all backgrounds, genders, cultures and abilities.  Our Driving Change Diversity initiative highlights those transport companies who are creating diverse and inclusive workplaces that welcome all those who want to be a part of our industry.

We will share the stories of our Diversity Champions and how they are working to bring about change and awareness in their own workplaces.  Also providing tips and tools to help our industry adapt to the changing needs and expectations of our future workforce.

Qualification Pathway

Driver traineeship – For us to grow the pool of professional drivers, at all levels, we need to invest in training and development of new people, from the ground up.  Employers provide an environment that supports learning, both on the job and online, using industry recognised tertiary qualifications to provide theory knowledge alongside in cab training behind the wheel – investing in training and development to produce qualified, skilled and safe drivers.

Driver Boost – Professional truck driving requires skills and abilities that are often only acknowledged by the class of licence held.  Our Boost Drivers are those professional, experienced drivers who took the opportunity to gain industry recognised tertiary qualifications and refresh their knowledge to improve their driving and progress their careers.
