HVIA partners with NatRoad to deliver TruckShowX 2024

HVIA and NatRoad are joining forces to deliver TruckShowX 2024, a new industry event focused on the move to zero emissions.

Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA) has announced that it has signed NatRoad as the official industry partner for its upcoming TruckShowX 2024.

Described as a ‘major industry decarbonisation event’, 2024 will be the first running of the event, a spin-off of the popular Brisbane Truck Show.

The inaugural TruckShowX 2024 will be held at the RACV Cape Schanck Resort in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula from May 13 to 14, 2024.

The event aims to explore the future of low and zero-emissions vehicles in the Australia transport industry, as well as technology, equipment, infrastructure and more surrounding the continued move to lower emissions.

There will be an expo showcasing the latest LZEV vehicles, product and services, with the opportunity for on-road driving experiences.

HVIA chief technical officer Adam Ritzinger says that NatRoad’s support will add to the event.

“Partnering with NatRoad for the first TruckShowX in 2024 makes perfect sense,” he says.

“TruckShowX is set to be the biggest trucking decarbonisation conference held in Australia to date, and NatRoad is undoubtedly the most proactive transport industry association when it comes to leading decarbonisation….their recent industry white paper is a clear testament to that”.

“I believe in the power of collaboration, and it is an absolute pleasure to welcome NatRoad as a partner. Together with our research partner NTRO, we will ensure that this event delivers real value and has an incredibly positive impact for every facet of trucking and heavy freight transport in Australia.”

NatRoad CEO Warren Clark says TruckShowX will be an important step forward for the Australian transport industry in the transition to zero emissions.

“Decarbonisation and managing the transition to low and zero emission vehicles is shaping up as one of our industry’s biggest challenges to date,” he says.

“TruckShowX 2024 will be a key opportunity to hear from the experts, look into early case studies, experience the technology, network with peers and exchange ideas.

“Our recent industry whitepaper identified the need for stronger collaboration to enable a cost-effective decarbonisation transition. TruckShowX 2024 is an excellent opportunity for us to get together as an industry and keep the conversation progressing.

“We are delighted to be partnering with HVIA on what will become a landmark event for the heavy vehicle industry.”
