NSW and QLD Bushfires have thrown an extra challenge at Transport Operators over the last few weeks. Wickham Freight Lines logistics manager Jeff Miller said “the drivers' safety was at risk and they'd been fortunate no one had been caught in a fire.”
ATA CEO Ben Maguire said “those travelling through bushfire-affected areas should make sure they have checked the latest weather conditions, bushfire alerts and traffic information, and ensure they carry an emergency survival kit with plenty of water.”
