Represenatives were shown Linfox’s Australian Automotive Research Centre (AARC).

The tour was part of this week's meeting between APEC transport ministers and transport officials from Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and New Zealand to identify areas of common interest in transport within the region.

"Today’s event showcased emergency braking system simulations, hybrid heavy vehicle technologies, lane departure warning system simulations and real-time operation of GPS tracking systems such as FoxTrax, Linfox’s own national vehicle monitoring system," Linfox founder Lindsay Fox says.

"Today’s showcase recognises the actions by Australian industry and jurisdictions in embracing new and emerging heavy vehicle technologies."

The trucking magnate says more must me done to encourage other Pacific regions to follow Australia’s lead and promote an industry that is more environmentally and safety savvy.

"We must collectively encourage and support our neighbouring countries in further examining these technologies and delivering safer and better environmental outcomes for their economies," he says.
