The “best-ever” Sandown Drive Days
will take place this week featuring interactive, hands-on
demonstrations of the latest technologies and innovations of the
relevance to the road transport industry.

Neil Chambers, CEO of the Victorian
Transport Association, says: “After months of planning, we are
excited to present the best-ever Sandown Drive Days to the
transport industry. This is the third event of its kind, and it is
becoming renowned as the best interactive, hands-on event that

The event includes working
demonstrations of trucks, trailers, vans, cars and motorcycles. The
latest advances in transport technology, workplace safety solutions
and best practice maintenance will be demonstrated, as well as
sessions on Performance Based Standards (PBS) vehicles and bulk
tanker emergency response.

The third Sandown Drive Days event
has the active support of leading organisations within the
commercial road transport industry, including VicRoads, the
National Transport Commission, Transport Certification Australia,
Transport Accident Commission, CityLink, EastLink and WorkSafe
Victoria, as well as leading truck manufacturers Daimler Trucks,
Hino, Paccar, Scania and Volvo.

More than 15 different trucks – as
well as cars and vans – will demonstrate the latest safety
technologies. Attendees can compare the features, giving them a
better understanding of the potential that this latest equipment
offers for improved productivity and safety.

 The Sandown Drive Days 2013
event is much more than just trucks and trailers. Maintenance
sessions, hands-on technology displays and demonstrations of the
latest in-load restraint and safety equipment make this a truly
practical experience across the full range of issues for the
transport sector.

 “With the range of
activities, it is a good idea for companies to send people to
different sessions to pick up the ideas and benefit from witnessing
the equipment in action,” Chambers adds.
