NatRoad becomes member of international union

NatRoad has joined the IRU, increasing its global presence.

Transport association NatRoad has announced that it has joined the International Road Transport Union (IRU).

Founded in 1948, the IRU is a global transport union, representing members and organisations all over the world.

With its headquarters based in Geneva, Switzerland, the partnership gives NatRoad a much more global presence in the industry.

NatRoad says its a major move for the association.

“We’re delighted to join IRU and tap into their international perspective and expertise,” he says.

“Our key priorities are to help our members and create the conditions for a thriving, safe and profitable road transport industry in Australia, and joining IRU will only further these objectives.

“Our commitment to safety, efficiency, sustainability and industry best practices aligns perfectly with the values upheld by IRU.

“We particularly look forward to working with IRU’s global network of national associations and leading international road transport companies to exchange on decarbonisation avenues and best practices.”

IRU secretary general Umberto de Pretto welcomes NatRoad into the IRU network.

“We’re very happy to welcome NatRoad into the IRU family. With a history spanning 75 years, they play a critical role in improving the industry and operating environment for all Australian road transport operators,” he says.

“We look forward to helping them further expand the critical services they provide to Australian operators, supply chains and, by extension, society at large.

“The global IRU network will surely benefit from NatRoad’s extensive knowledge in improving sector conditions as well as in sustainability and environmental matters, particularly eco-trucks, given Australia’s long experience with road trains.”
