The ARTSA Institute (ARTSA-i), formerly known as the Australian Road Transport Suppliers Association, has been established to respond the challenge of the rapidly changing heavy vehicle industry. It undertakes collaborative independent research in the domain of heavy vehicle transport. The outcomes of the research are intended to inform the development of future policies of relevance to the heavy vehicle sector. ARTSA-i is also a leader in gathering and analysing information on the Heavy Vehicle Transport industry in Australia.
The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) and ARTSA-i have again demonstrated the success of Australia’s world-leading PBS scheme through a report Performance Based Standards – Australia’s PBS Fleet 2020. This is the third annual report on the progress of PBS in the heavy vehicle market.
