November 24, 2009

Border Express boss Jon Luff has been appointed as chairman of the NSW branch of the Australian Trucking Association.

Luff takes over from Frank Johnston who retired as the inaugural chair of the organisation after two years.

Following his appointment, Luff put a strong emphasis on representing all aspects of the trucking industry.

"While there are still hurdles to overcome, it’s important that we have a strong united voice, which represents the views of the entire trucking industry," he says.

Luff has been part of the ATA-NSW policy council since it began in 2007, and he says it is an exciting time for the trucking industry.

"While there are many challenges for the industry in the coming years, as a whole we are in great shape," he says.

Although the branch has had a strained relationship with the NSW Government, Luff says the association is respected and he will make sure the relationship with both sides of politics is strong and productive.

In taking over as the chairman, Luff thanked Johnston for his work by saying the industry owes him a debt of gratitude.

"Under his leadership, ATA-NSW has grown from a blank canvas to the well respected and successful organisation it is today," Luff says.
