The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), Transport Certification Australia (TCA) and the Australian Road Transport Suppliers Association (ARTSA) have demonstrated the success of Australia’s world-leading PBS scheme through two new reports.
The first report titled Performance Based Standards – Australia’s PBS Fleet released today, highlights that:
ARTSA Chair Martin Toomey said the PBS scheme was encouraging heavy vehicle renewal nationwide. “One of the key benefits of the PBS scheme has been to accelerate the renewal of the heavy vehicle fleet nationwide. The median age of PBS vehicles is four years compared to 12 years for the entire heavy vehicle fleet,” Mr Toomey said.
The second report titled Performance Based Standards – Freight Task Analysis, provides insights into the movements of heavy vehicles certified under the Performance Based Standards (PBS) scheme, using telematics data collected from the TCA’s Intelligent Access Program (IAP) across Australia.
Rob Perkins, Executive Director, ARTSA Data said “the report contains aggregated statistics from registered PBS freight vehicles enrolled in the IAP derived from global positioning system (GPS) records collected from vehicles during 2018. It provides a bird’s-eye view of the movements of a sample of the PBS fleet”.
The report demonstrated that:
ARTSA collaborates with organisations including the NHVR and TCA to produce informative documents such as this publication, but also provides a commercial service for industry wanting to access more detailed heavy vehicle data.
