Mad Max and roller derby all in one

ake any sport: track and field, figure skating, formula one, rugby union or league, velodrome cycling, golf, just about anything you can think of, it’s all about the surface the said event is conducted on. Even in sports like competitive fighting, the ring’s surface will be wiped between rounds so the two individuals pounding each other’s heads don’t inadvertently slip and hurt themselves. Cricket’s a particularly interesting one, because there we have a sport where the manipulation of the surface prior to the event helps determine the outcome. In short, the effectiveness, safety and competency of the players is most affected by the suitability of the surface for the intended activity. Currently I’m bemused by what’s happening on, and to, our roads. The public trumpeting some politicians are engaging in is at odds with what’s happening out on the highway to supposedly improve the level of safety. There are summits, and goodness knows what else happening in order to address an issue that’s fundamentally straightforward; all it needs is leadership. Firstly, the ‘playing field’. It’s far from level, literally. Cars, trucks and motorbikes will have a far greater chance of staying on a good surface. So why are we spending so much money on the hundreds of kilometres of roadside barriers when either the surface of the road immediately adjacent to the barrier is in dire need of reconstruction, or key roads elsewhere are screwed completely? If you quizzed the groundsperson of even a regional cricket club I’m sure they’d argue the surface being prepared is conducive to the road toll we currently have. Some examples: Hundreds of metres of barriers being erected on State Highway 27 when in places the surface on the same state highway is completely degraded. Ten kilometres north of Te Kuiti on State Highway 3 there are roadside barriers going up when the actual Te Kuiti hill (also SH3) is structurally compromised and slipping away. Other examples of dangerous road surfaces we frequently hear about are State Highway 2 east from Paengaroa to Otamarakau in the Bay of Plenty and State Highway 65 north of Shenandoah Saddle toward Murchison. The surfaces of our main regional arteries have

never been in such appalling condition, and rectifying that should be priority one. And where does WorkSafe New Zealand fit in all this? We know the answer to that of course. It’s only our workplaces that draw the ire. I often wonder who approves the steel post and wire motorcycle-shredding barriers that go up mile after mile. What do they think of a carriageway where cars and trucks that need to pull over and stop are unable to do so without serious life-threatening risk to the driver conducting the restorative tasks he or she needs to in order to make the vehicle safe? Secondly, the ‘playing field’, this time metaphorically. The government appears to be suckered into the notion that driving is some God-given right that all New Zealanders are entitled to. Nothing could be further from the truth. Driving is a privilege that comes about as the result of widespread economic success, and like all privileges it can be removed at any moment. To make matters worse, not only is the government delusional, but so is the public. Today’s society lives in a vapour of self-entitlement and exorbitant excess. If you want proof, look at the ‘too many trucks on the road’, argument, and domestic debt. Many trucks are there carrying the trinkets of credit to those wondering why it wasn’t delivered yesterday. I’ve stated in two recent editorials how easily this electronic era in which we live could play a key role in not only curbing the outrageous speeds seen on the road, but also eliminating from the scene those who won’t take the ‘slow down’ message to heart. I’m not going over it again because it won’t happen. Why? Votes. Quite simply, the electronic fining of over-speed will cost votes, and no amount of safety is worth the loss of power. It’s ironic because the revenue pool amassed from coming down on speed with an electronic hammer could cover much of the resurfacing shortfall…unless it’s used to artificially make something more vote-worthy look good. 

Replacement route for Manawatu Gorge six years away

T

he replacement route for the permanently closed Manawatu Gorge has been announced, but motorists will have to use the alternative routes for another six years. The proposed route (Option 3 of the four shortlisted) will run from near the Te Apiti car park western entry of the closed Manawatu Gorge, cross the Ruahine Ranges north of the gorge, and emerge at Woodville. NZ Transport Agency director regional relationships Emma Speight said after a thorough investigation and extensive consultation, Option 3 emerged as the safest and most resilient route that best balanced the combined needs of the communities, businesses and road users who will utilise it. “Everybody understands just how important a replacement for the gorge is. It will re-establish a key strategic transport and freight link that supports the needs of the people and economies of central New Zealand,” she said. “Alongside this, the Transport Agency has committed to advancing investigations for a Regional Freight Ring Road, including a second road bridge across the Manawatu River, which stakeholders across the region see as a critical package to unlocking regional economic development opportunities.” The Detailed Business Case process will begin immediately, covering a 10-year programme of work, targeted for completion at the same time of the replacement route for the Manawatu Gorge. Transport operator Glenn Carroll wasn’t looking forward to another six years of relying on the alternative routes as his trucks travel between Manawatu and Hawke’s Bay several times a day.

“Obviously they’ve got to purchase land and go through the consent process and all that. But there was talk that they were going to treat it like the Kaikoura road, as a priority, and do away with the resource consents. If they did it would be good.” Carroll said at least the new route will be a green fields project so motorists won’t be subject to road closures on the route while it is being built. Horizons Regional Council chairman Bruce Gordon says that progressing a Regional Freight Ring Road in parallel with the Manawatu Gorge replacement route would be a significant step forward for the region. “It would connect key freight hubs and bring significant improvements to freight and passenger vehicle movements through the central North Island hub of Manawatu, improving travel times and lowering costs. This better positions the region to attract investment in logistics, manufacturing and processing, which is critical for the region’s future growth and prosperity.” A detailed business case on the new SH3 route will be finalised over the next few weeks. The project team will then seek resource consents with construction planned to begin in 2020, with the new road completed by 2024. Option 3 will have an average incline gradient of 5.8%, with a maximum of 8% (in comparison, the current main alternative route, the Saddle Road, has a maximum gradient of 16%). Travel time is estimated to be 13 minutes for general traffic (compared with an average 16.7 minutes that it took to travel the Manawatu Gorge).

Tomoana launches Heavy Haul Division

A

purchase of an impressive over-dimensional combination. The unit was purpose-designed and constructed from the drawing board by Tidd Ross Todd (TRT) Ltd. Flexibility was paramount, and speaking to Terry Northcott, Tomoana Heavy Haul operations supervisor, he could not be more pleased with the performance. Its ability to run as a float with ramps today, and tomorrow be separated into modules to transport a 44m long bridge beam, has met and exceeded the team’s expectations. By utilising a modular design with self-steer and follow capabilities, it has dramatically increased the unit’s scope of work.

Tomoana managing director Stewart Taylor addresses attendees at the division’s launch.

t the official launch of Tomoana Warehousing’s Heavy Haul Division on 22 March, Tomoana Warehousing managing director Stewart Taylor described how the successful bid for NZ Transport Agency projects alongside of Eastbridge to supply various over-dimensional prefabricated bridge beams escalated an already strong relationship. “We are delighted to be involved with Eastbridge, a modest company from the Hawke’s Bay punching above its weight, successfully competing against global companies for large scale infrastructure projects,” he said. The existing working partnership with Eastbridge arranging and implementing the delivery of their structurally engineered bridge beams, towers and gantries, has up until now been addressed by the existing Tomoana fleet. The increased demands brought about by the new NZTA contracts for greater capacity, time critical and more agile deliveries led to the formation of the specialised division. This entity would be tasked with these moves and further expand their offerings to all clients with similar requirements. The establishment of the new division brought about the

Keith Andrews Trucks’ newest dealership is located at 4 Ruffell Road, Te Rapa

Keith Andrews Trucks new Waikato branch

K

eith Andrews Trucks (KAT), New Zealand’s largest FUSO dealer, has opened a new branch in Hamilton to better support its growing customer base. Purpose-built from the ground up, the Te Rapa dealership is fully equipped for heavy commercial sales, parts supply and service, and is open from 7am to 5pm weekdays and 7am to 12pm Saturdays. It is the fourth FUSO-focused dealership in KAT’s upper North Island network and the first of its kind in Hamilton within the wider Fuso New Zealand national network. Managing director Keith Andrews said the need for a dedicated FUSO sales and service dealer in the Waikato region had increased rapidly with the expansion of its largest city. The new facility has five service bays manned by FUSOtrained technicians, supported by proprietary diagnostic tools

and Fuso New Zealand technical experts. Branch manager Shaun Croswell, who moved from Keith Andrews Manukau to establish the business and ensure the same high standard of service is a provided to every customer, leads the 17-strong team. “One of my first actions has been to meet with our existing customers and find out how we can best deliver to their needs and expectations,” said Shaun. “I received some really valuable feedback that will help guide my priorities over the next few months.” After only being open for a few weeks, Shaun said while they specialise in FUSO, they had been servicing a range of makes and models. In addition to truck sales and service, the Hamilton branch has 1,500 genuine FUSO parts available off the shelf and access to over 9,000 more only two hours away at Fuso New Zealand’s warehouse near Auckland Airport. “We’re really looking forward to delivering a better level of service to the region,” said Shaun. “It has had good service for the past decade, but it’s time for us to take it to the next level.”

Regional fuel tax a nonsense

NZT005

The introduction of legislation allowing regional fuel taxes is a retrograde step that will hinder rather than help the Government’s infrastructure plans, according to Road Transport Forum chief executive Ken Shirley. He said regional fuel taxes were ‘a complete nonsense’ as they were inefficient, full of loopholes and exclusions, and the impact on motorists was often inequitable and the revenue gathered underwhelming. Shirley said as a means of raising revenue for infrastructure there was far more merit in a realignment of Auckland Council’s assets and the establishment of a road pricing scheme. He said road pricing or congestion charging had been effective overseas, and it also futureproofed against changes in transport technology. “By its very definition fuel tax relies on the sale of transport fuels, however as cars become more efficient and the take up of EV’s grows, fuel taxes become less and less effective. This is backward looking policy.”

WWW.GOCLEAR.CO.NZ The road to better information

C

oreLogic NZ has announced a multi-year agreement with the NZ Transport Agency that will lead to significant efficiency gains for New Zealand’s roading infrastructure and its governing bodies. With expansive responsibilities that include covering the performance and safety of our highways, ensuring an efficient network, planning and forecasting for its growth plus allocation of funding, NZTA needed a robust dataset to support their decision making on the maintenance and investment in New Zealand’s roading infrastructure. CoreLogic Road Data is New Zealand’s most complete and current ‘real world’ dataset, relied upon for its detailed roading intelligence in areas such as traffic flows, structures, intersections, turn restrictions and routes. Updated daily (alongside CoreLogic national property and address

information), it also includes new roads captured directly from subdivision plans. As part of this programme of work, CoreLogic is working closely with RAMM Software Ltd, Australasia’s premier road asset management software company, and creators of the RAMM (Road Assessment and Maintenance Management) software. RAMM is used

extensively by all of New Zealand’s RCAs. This project has resulted in a new dataset that combines the road location with road condition. The dataset will be made available through the NZTA open data platform (https://opendata-nzta.opendata. arcgis.com) for a wide range of noncommercial purposes.

Opposition Transport spokesman selected

F Jami-Lee Ross

ollowing Simon Bridges’ success in securing the leadership of the National Party, MP for Botany Jami-Lee Ross has been named spokesperson for transport and also infrastructure. Bridges said his new caucus reflected his intention to make the most of the party’s considerable experience as well as new talent – and to recognise hard work, new ideas and success. “It is a strong mix of former ministers and senior MPs alongside emerging ones who have proven to me they have what it takes to hold this Ardern-Peters Government to account, to listen to New

Zealanders and to develop new policies for the 2020s.” Ranked eighth on National’s list, Ross was elected to Parliament as the Member for Botany in the March 2011 by-election. He began his political career in 2004 representing the Howick Ward as a Manukau City councillor and was subsequently re-elected to the council in 2007. After the formation of the Auckland Council in 2010, he was elected as a councillor for the newly enlarged Howick Ward and became co-leader of the Citizens & Ratepayers Party.

Raising the profile of the forklift sector

M

embers of the Forklift Manufacturers and Distributors Association (NZFMDA) have approved changes broadening the representation of the forklift sector. With the new age of technology and increased demand on businesses to be compliant and fulfil the duties related to the supply of plant and equipment, there has been increased demand for a national association to represent and advocate for the forklift industry within New Zealand. The New Zealand Forklift Industry Association (NZFIA) held an open industry meeting on 10 April with the express intentions of presenting a new way forward for the industry body and gaining a better understanding about the needs of industry. The meeting explained benefits of

membership such as access to national and international industry events, industry specific insurance, health and safety systems, industry representation to interact with government agencies (e.g. MBIE, WorkSafe, Standards NZ), promotion of industry careers, products and services.

aste Management NZ has opened this country’s first workshop dedicated to converting diesel trucks into electric vehicles. The company plans to convert 20 of its truck fleet in the next two years. The first conversion is almost completed and will be used to collect waste from Auckland Hospital. In addition, the workshop is also open to other companies looking to transform their vehicles into EVs. Tom Nickels, Waste Management managing director, said he was delighted to open the workshop in what was a major step forward for both the company and electric vehicles in New Zealand. “Our investment in the EV workshop will create a knowledge centre for EV conversion in New Zealand and will help us move towards our long-term goal of a fleet of fully electric vehicles. “Our conversion partner EMOSS in the Netherlands has provided the kitsets and knowledge for our team to start completing conversions here. We are also looking forward to helping other New Zealand businesses convert their fleets for a more sustainable future.”

Scania, the green machine again Scania has again won the Green Truck Award. The German fuel test focuses on lowest fuel consumption, and Scania’s R 500, with its updated 13-litre engine, was unbeatable. With an average fuel consumption of 24.92 litre/100km and an average speed of 79.91km/h on the same 350km test track, the difference between Scania and the next best competitor was 0.4 litre per every 100km. Translated into a typical annual mileage for a long-distance truck of 150,000 kilometres, the difference adds up to 600 litres annually (or approximately 3m3 of diesel fuel over a period of five years). “The Green Truck Award is a unique comparison test since it has this total focus on what matters most to our customers from a cost and sustainability perspective,” said Wolfgang Buschan, product director, long haulage, Scania Trucks. “The fact that we won the award again this year is extremely flattering.” The Green Truck Award is run by leading German trade magazines VerkehrsRundschau and Trucker.

aimler Trucks is launching a new era of truck production in Brazil, involving systematic implementation of Industry 4.0 concepts. Over the past three years, Daimler Trucks has invested 125 million euros (NZ$213.4 million) in a new truck assembly line. Daimler Trucks is also set to invest a further 600 million euros (NZ$1.02 billion) into updating its truck portfolio, digital services, and the modernisation of its two production plants in Brazil by 2022. The Industry 4.0 concepts include a range of technologies

and tools all fully connected in real time. Their use has led to an improvement of around 15% in manufacturing efficiency compared with the old assembly lines, a reduction in the number of parts stores from 53 to six, and in the storage time for components from 10 days to at most, three. Compared with production as it was, the overall parts logistics process is now some 20% more efficient.

ercedes-Benz Vans has finally revealed its new Sprinter in the metal, and carried out its promise of a wider range of variants and a longer list of assistance features taken from its passenger cars. In theory it’s now possible to generate 1734 different Sprinters by swapping engines and body types, configurations and lengths, cargo height, and more. A front drive is added to the line-up that boosts payload by 50kg over rear-drive variants, and allows a loading edge that’s 80mm lower. Sprinter also gets two new transmissions developed for front-drive, a 9-speed auto and a 6-speed manual, as well as the 7-speed auto for the rear-drive and allwheel drive versions. The design includes loadable wheel housings and extended

Those tech assistance features include radar-based cruise control, which automatically slows the van to match the speed of the vehicle in front if needed, plus active lane keeping assist to weight the steering wheel away from the white line you’re drifting towards, and the latest parking package. The new infotainment system premiered in the A-class car, and includes a 10.25” display and touch screen, plus voice control that in certain markets can reply to such statements as “the fuel tank is empty” with a list of nearby fuel stations. Sprinter even gets internet capability, with an eye on simplifying fleet management and communication between drivers and base.

LDV has added to its T60 ute range with the arrival of a single-cab cab-chassis 4WD variant. Powered by a 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine and with a spec that includes six airbags, active headlights, tyre pressure monitoring and cruise control, it is priced at $26,990 plus GST. LDV NZ chairman Rick Cooper says pre-orders include beekeepers, rural contractors and large fleet owners. LDV sells an Australian-made alloy flat deck weighing in at 148kg for an additional $3000 plus GST. The 2018 RAM 1500 will launch here mid-year. A smaller version competing with the mainstream brands and powered by a 5.7-litre Hemi V8, it will be converted to RHD in Melbourne, along with an Aussie-developed RHD dash conversion. The stink bug crisis has affected vehicle stock levels in New Zealand even as solutions are found. Affected distributors are asking for patience, given the importance of proper treatment to prevent the bug’s arrival here. Bloomberg predicts half the world’s city buses will be powered by electricity within seven years. Self-drive freight New Zealand could launch its own fully autonomous vehicle this year, and it’s one that should appeal to business fleets. Ohmio’s range of electric, self-driving passenger or freight vehicles starts with an Ohmio Lift that carries up to 12 passengers. Designed as ‘last mile’ transport, it can move people or goods from a transport hub to a final destination. The vehicles are designed to connect with traffic management networks, other vehicles and positioning systems, and can link up to operate in convoy.

Get ready for the electric revolution here in New Zealand. Waste Management is leading the commercial charge by converting five diesel trucks to electricity for its supermarket collection, rear load and skip bin work. Waste Management managing director Tom Nickels says electricity powered trucks last longer between services, and cut noise and air pollution.

hen ex-Cyclone Gita trashed a section of State Highway 60 on the Takaka Hill, which links Golden Bay and Nelson, it was a stark reminder to Golden Bay’s 6000 permanent residents that their supply lines were dependent on trucks. The Takaka Hill is the only road in and out of Golden Bay and its closure shut the door without warning to trucks bringing supplies to the town. Within half a day, the only supermarket was cleaned out of groceries, and petrol and diesel were rationed until new supplies could come in. Golden Bay’s largest transport business is Sollys Freight. Merv Solly had long considered that the Takaka Hill road could close and had a contingency plan in place, thanks in part to having good relationships in the wider transport industry. Within two days, the first trucks trundled into Golden Bay, having arrived by sea. Sollys Freight had organised the lease of a barge from Picton, loading ramps at Port Nelson and Port Tarakohe in Golden Bay, loading and unloading systems, and a pilot. “We’ve always had that contingency because we’ve always used barges,” Merv said. “I had a lot of experience with Sea Two tugs and barges so I’m completely au fait with all of that. It’s old hat to me really. “We have a shareholding in the [small coastal freighter] Anatoki so we can toss that around a bit. We have a lot of relationships in tug and barging and were able to hook into one of those to find one which was best suited and available.” The barge was used for the major priorities – bringing food

and fuel into the bay, and getting produce out. It could load and unload only at high tide, with trucks driving on and off the bow ramp. A round trip took six hours. Kyle van de Pas, plant manager at Fonterra in Takaka, said Fonterra’s most urgent priority was to get cream out of Golden Bay to Nelson, from where it could be trucked for processing in Clandeboye, South Canterbury. The Fonterra trucks that collect milk from farms have flow meters and needed to remain in in Golden Bay, so Fonterra used contractors’ trucks to move the cream to Nelson. Initially a Sollys fertiliser truck reversed the Fonterra tanks on trailers down from the main road. “It was taking up too much time and we had to make sure we were ready to go when the tide started going out,” Kyle said, “so we just had trucks going on from that point on.” Kyle said every Fonterra site review includes a business continuity plan (BCP). “That’s to think about scenarios like that for Takaka and the rest of the South Island: what happens if the hill is closed for any reason and what would we do. This is the first time we’ve implemented it.” They worked closely with Solly’s to get trucks on to the barge. “We did it based on what happens theoretically but now we can update the BCP based on what actually happened and make sure we run through every single possibility so we don’t lose any milk and nothing gets dumped.” The barge was always only a temporary measure as it was expensive and dependent on good weather.


WWW.GOCLEAR.CO.NZ

Lawrence Shadbolt manoeuvres a trailer onto the barge. Keeping the barge in synch with tide times meant trailers were discontinued in favour of trucks only.

“Road transport is a fraction of barging costs,” Merv said. “Even Anatoki can’t compete on short haul, road transport beats it to death. Most of it is port costs, wharfage and all the stuff that keeps on going.” He said when the port costs were included they more than doubled the total shipping costs, per tonne. When the NZ Transport Agency partially opened the hill road on 25 February, trucks on both sides of the hill were revved up and ready to go – but the news wasn’t all good. Trucks were given priority, but trailers and over-sized vehicles were banned because there was insufficient swinging room for them to negotiate some narrow, tight corners in the single-lane damaged sections. The hill would be open to convoys led by pilot vehicles only from 7am to 8am and 5pm to 6pm. The first convoy comprised around 70% freight vehicles and 30% campervans and private vehicles. Most bulk carriers needed two to three trucks to replace the capacity of one truck and trailer. Kyle said a Fonterra truck carried approximately 10,000 litres of cream – a truck and trailer unit approximately 27,000 litres. Fonterra was running at least two trucks every morning and evening to take cream out of the bay, picking up trailers carrying more cream in Brightwater, near Nelson, before continuing on to Clandeboye. Drivers for Sollys and other companies who made the morning convoy to Nelson had to wait all day before queuing for the return convoy in the evening – it made for a long day, leaving the Takaka depot around 6am and often not returning until 7pm, although they had logged only a few hours’ drive time. Merv said the restrictions on travel times and trailers increased freight costs by up to 70% and cost Sollys $600,000 since ex-Cyclone Gita closed the road. On 20 March, NZTA network manager Frank Porter announced truck and trailer units could safely navigate the tighter corners after testing the route to ensure a range of truck configurations could safely navigate the road. The convoys were extended from 6am to 8am, and 5pm to 7pm, later being

extended further. Special permits were available for selected trucks and buses, with over-dimension and over-weight vehicles considered on a case-by-case basis. Paul Holm, logistical planner at Fonterra in Hamilton, said the partial closure of the Takaka Hill limited the amount of milk Fonterra could send into Takaka for processing. Fonterra used contractors’ trucks because they run combination RUCs. However, like Merv Solly, he said the biggest problem was the limited timing. “Our milk runs 24/7 and our factories run 24/7 but the timing condenses the trucks coming in and out of Takaka. There’s so much traffic going over one-way; that’s the biggest complaint we’re getting.” Freight for Sollys had built up in other depots, including Christchurch. “We’re catching up slowly with it all,” said Merv, “but it’s still bloody restrictive having the time constraints.” He said NZTA had done a good job of keeping people informed but the short work days were frustrating. Craig Taylor, stock agent for PGG Wrightson, welcomed the access for truck-trailer units and said it lowered the cost of freighting stock for farmers. “Some clients have been holding off selling or buying because they don’t know what it’s going to cost,” he said. “This will help them plan more accurately.” The barge had not been an option for sending livestock out of the bay. The uncertainty around timing had been difficult for farmers, because they liked being able to send stock according to market prices, available feed on their properties, and available space at the freezing works. The NZTA had seen an average of 1000 vehicles travel the hill each day, with 1900 on Sundays. As New Zealand Trucking went to print, NZTA hoped to open single-lane access without convoys, managed by traffic signals, outside the daytime construction work of 8am to 5pm Monday to Saturday, including overnight, from 6 April onwards, dependent on good weather.  New Zealand Trucking

The big vee engine had power and torque credentials of 402kW (540hp), and 2500Nm (1845lb/ft) respectively. Behind the power plant was the new GS330 12-speed AMT which CPT co-owner Mike Cowens said offered a significant step change in driveability and smoothness over its predecessor, the 16-speed Autoshift. The other significant feature on the truck was a Voith retarder, which also scored

It was an 8-axle stock combination with two, four-deck/two-deck crates, no sign of an ‘H’ plate, and it ran along at an acceptable 1.67 to 1.80kpl. Mike felt the truck’s power, comfort, and technology was at the forefront of the big Euros of the time and was the answer to not only maintaining an acceptable bottom line in a highly competitive industry, but also in the attraction and retention of top staff. A high tech powerful truck of the era that posed the age-old question that comes with every generation…how much better does it get? Well, lots actually. Let’s move ahead almost a decade. In early March this year CPT took delivery of a new Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3263 8x4 rigid truck. “I’ve only driven it from Christchurch to Timaru empty,” said Mike Cowens. “I’ve never experienced anything like it. It’s just taken the whole game to another level entirely.”

And he’s entirely correct. We’ve never hidden our enthusiasm for the new Mercedes-Benz range right from the time of the 2015 Brisbane Truck show pre-field trial unveiling. The new range is an entirely new truck from its MP3 predecessor, and as we’ve said before, Mercedes-Benz set a base requirement at the start of the design process of a 20% improvement in the service life of all components. The new range appeared on the roads of Europe in 2011, and with historical lessons duly noted on the part of Daimler, it was subjected to an exhaustive field trial and support systems preparation programme in this part of the world before we ever saw it. Such a programme was critical, as not one part on the truck, chassis, driveline, or cab was interchangeable with its predecessor. The uptake since the local launch last March has been rapid, with a new galaxy of stars appearing on New Zealand roads – there’s 20 coming to the South Island alone in the next few months.

The interior of the Mercedes-Benz is all class: abundant storage, typical Euro dash. If you’re a woodgrain and gauges person then no, it’s not going to be you. The fitout, materials, flat floor, and modern accoutrements like the fridge under the bed mean it’s essentially a micro-apartment.

A cab like no other Nine years ago we noted that the external appearance of the cab was probably due for an update. Well, Mercedes listened (we like to think they did) and what we’re in today is the fruit of that labour. The CPT truck sports the top of the line 2.5m StreamSpace L cab. It’s probably the most opulent cab we’ve encountered in the magazine in recent times. The entirely flat floor still takes some getting used to. When sitting in your armchair you’re looking across at the driver sitting in his. Harking back to the 8x4 Arocs’ original intended design as a construction off-highway truck, there’s no advanced safety package (Active Brake Assist etc) on this unit like there are on its 6x4 Arocs siblings. However, with the revamped options list now in action they will all be there by unit three. The CPT truck has all the opulence of the Ranui machine. The space, fittings, seats, standing room, bed (full innerspring) storage, colour tones, driving position and dash layout in

these cabs set the bar if Euro’s your buzz. It’s going to be an interesting comparison when the new Scania arrives here later in the year. Imagine telling drivers five decades ago that one day OEMs will be vying for who can pamper you the most. It’s a huge, high cab with the floor almost at eye height for a six-footer standing outside. However the biomechanical algorithms that must have gone into entry and exit design make it among the easiest of any cab to get in and out of. Cosmetically it’s only the grille and the bumper/light arrangement that differentiate the Arocs and Actros. We won’t go into exhaustive detail on the cab interior; we’ve been there enough already (ref New Zealand Trucking magazine Jan/Feb 17, Aug 17, Oct 17, and Aug 15). Harking back to the 2009 truck, gone is the little stumpy toggle arm rest-mounted gear lever. Everything in the new truck happens on the

steering wheel or on the two wands either side. We have to say we’re not the hugest fans of too many controls mounted on the steering wheel. In the autobahns of Europe and the interstates of the US and Australia they’re fine, but here there’s a potential for too much ‘wheel chasing’ as we call it. You have to be able to find what you want without a second guess while traversing places like the Coromandel, East Cape, and Whangamoas, and in that respect we’re definitely a ‘wand’ country rather than a ‘wheel’. As for the beautiful wrapped – albeit typically German austere – dash, in the centre between the four gauges (speed, RPM, fuel, DEF) is a digital display, which in concert with steering wheel buttons and toggles is where the bulk of the show is run from. Along the top of the read-out are Chapters – Trucking, Odometer/ Eco, Alarm/Audio System Information, Gauges, and Settings; and within each chapter are pages, in which you do what you need to do. There’s a favourite set-up mode so the truck knows what you like. The left wand is the home of wipers, indicators and beam adjustment, and on the right is the gear lever wand. Auto or manual on the end button, forward and back mode via a barrel switch in the centre, paddle up and paddle down for manual shifts, and for engine brake pull it towards you. Daily checks are done via the dash now. The outside storage lockers are prodigious and there’s even one on the left under the main side locker connected to the heat from the engine and able to dry the raincoat and gloves.

Left: Access to the insanely high cab is a miracle in design. Certainly one of the easiest trucks to get in and out of. Even the full width cab has a noticeable cascade on the steps yet wants for nothing in regard to interior space. Right: Prodigious external storage on both sides, including an additional heated locker on the left.

Somewhere to look when you board. You can’t check anything as such; the truck will tell you when, what, where, and how much.

From our perspective we think Mercedes-Benz asked this question at the outset of the design phase for this cab: ‘If you walk into a Mercedes-Benz car dealer and buy one of our cars, what would you expect to drive out?’ That we think was the brief for the new cab, because that’s what’s been delivered.

Prestige by name Having a truck with extended service intervals is one thing, figuring out how best to support the entire unit is another. Aside from Prestige’s ‘A service’ programme mentioned above, they’ve also taken the initiative and created a programme that aligns a finished unit with the core attributes of the truck. Product support manager Steve Blackie explains: “I liaise with body and trailer builders and supply MercedesBenz certified componentry, things like plugs and fittings that meet the longevity expectations that come with the chassis. That way the reliability of all that surrounds the core product should be there. The service interval applies to the whole thing in other words.” Another feature on the new range that’s proving a hit with customers is the onboard PSM or Programmable Special Module. “The module essentially allows a plug and play electronic interface between the truck and attachments/ equipment a customer fits to the vehicle. Anything from a PTO, to a crane to the tail door on a bulk unit can easily be made to communicate with its host truck,” said Steve.

Although both men converse daily, Mike’s the front man on the day-to-day trucking business. From the hamlet of Cust, Mike’s career started with Rapid Transport driving a 1418 Benz on general freight around the region. From there he graduated to an Isuzu stock unit of 240hp and eventually on to a 370hp Isuzu before landing a 3350 Foden with a 350 Cummins. Interestingly, he never really bonded with the Foden in the same way he did with the Isuzus. Mike moved on to operations in 1998, and when Rapid was sold in 2005 he got itchy feet and felt the need to put his experience and knowledge to use for himself. At that time, Richard Bell, a local and well respected farmer, was looking to expand the two-truck transport operation he’d established under the RWB Transport banner a couple of years previously. The ducks were lining up as they say, and Richard offered Mike the opportunity to come on board. But that’s not where the synchronicity ends. At the same time local Mercedes-Benz salesman Gerald Stanley found himself with two 8x4 Actros trucks surplus to requirements following the cancellation of an order. Mike couldn’t believe his ears following a call enquiring about a truck purchase. “I said, ‘I’ll take them both!’ I didn’t know how the hell I’d pay for them,” laughs the energetic and good-natured Cowens, “But that’s what happened. We

renamed it CPT, kept the livery and the rest’s history.” So in one fell swoop, Richard expanded his operation, Mike got into business, and Gerald sold his trucks! The world’s a beautiful place. Today CPT run 11 trucks – seven Mercedes-Benz, three Scanias, and a Hino. All bar the Hino, a dropside truck and bulk trailer, are on permanent stock work. When quizzed on the Scanias’ arrival, Mike points to a time when Mercedes-Benz couldn’t supply the right truck and gearbox combination and there was a Scania available ex-showroom. “They’ve been good trucks to us, but we’ve had a simply outstanding run from the Mercedes-Benz. In our years of operation we’ve only done two engines and one gearbox. That’s not bad considering the miles we do and where we go. “We used to run them out to 600odd thousand kilometres but in past few years we’ve rolled that out to 1 to 1.2m kilometres. It just didn’t make

Two brands synonymous with each other in Godzone.

New Zealand was built on ingenuity, adaption and ‘pluckiness’, and that’s just what it’s taken to get the new Mercedes-Benz range to our fair land in 8x4 rigid trim. As gargantuan and festooned with model options as the mighty world of Mercedes-Benz is, finding an 8x4 rigid Actros for those weirdos down at the Long White Cloud initially sent the search engine on the truck spec’ing software into a spin. Choose ‘Arocs’ at the start of your selection process however, and there-she-be, an 8x4 rigid – Boom! The problem was, though, the Arocs isn’t intended to be your long haul, lightweight highway cruiser. This is a truck that’s built for either turning off the black-top onto the rougher stuff, muddling around in construction sites, or staying on the highway with anything from an earthmover to some

And Theo at Prestige is great, I like dealing with Theo.” The CPT operation is a typical, resourceful Kiwi enterprise with no extravagant overheads. It has trucks located in Rangiora, Amberley and Ashburton. Mike said they’ve settled on Domett trailers and Delta crates as their preferred options and have recently finished an upgrade programme on much of the trailing gear to bring it up to 9-axle spec. “We don’t run into the North Island,” said Mike. “We keep it local and focus on looking after our local customers.” There’s no doubting the energy that exists in this lively business. There’s a buzz that flowed through from Mike’s dining table and on to Luke in the cab of the Arocs. Maybe it’s just what Mike intimated in 2009.

component from the heart of a nuclear power station weighing in the hundreds of tonnes jammed up its jacksey. It’s why the grille bars on the Arocs have those little appendages along their length. They’re teeth, intended to frighten any load into submission as the truck approaches. The minor issue tends to be around tare, as the Arocs is built ultra-strong and therefore a wee bit heavy for highway work, worsened by the fact that tare has never been a strong Mercedes-Benz selling point. That’s where Kiwi ingenuity comes to the fore. Initially the plan was for Mercedes-Benz Germany to undertake a development and sign-off path for the Actros, so 8x4 rigids could be specified. In the meantime, the Arocs would be offered with a few pre-delivery tweaks and adaptions to make them better suited to line haul highway life. However, New Zealand Trucking

One, the customer gets the best of both worlds in respect to longevity, durability, and application, and two, those pesky Kiwis who still think rigid and dog combos are where it’s at will stop ringing Australia and the motherland asking ‘How far away is that bloody truck mate?’

From great stock Luke Henderson could not be a more fitting operator for the new CPT Mercedes-Benz 3263 Arocs, having been born and bred in the centre of the Canterbury plains, in Dunsandel. Talking with Luke you soon realise that the diesel was running through his veins from an early age. His vivid memories of playing with trucks in the sandpit at Dunsandel School with two of his best mates is testament to this. This school yard pastime and boyhood dream would later lead to all three school buddies running down the road together in Scania stock units for Eddie and Sandra Swain. It is fair to say that the diesel was injected into Luke’s veins, having a father in the industry who drove bulk a unit for Ellesmere Transport. Luke started out after school and in the holidays riding shotgun in early 1418 Mercedes Benzs, G88 and N10 Volvos, and an International S Line with a 444 Cummins fitted. His first memory of driving a truck was a G88 Volvo in the paddocks picking up hay bales. “I was only about eight years old and had to push the seat right back so I could stand behind the wheel and still reach the pedals,” said Luke with a laugh. Although Luke had all the passion, and exposure to the transport industry while growing up, he didn’t go driving immediately after finishing high school. Like a lot of us Luke was faced with all manner of negative feedback regarding truck driving as a profession and was steered away from it. He spent his first 13 years in the workforce farming on the Canterbury Plains. Eventually the call of the road dragged him away from his farm duties and he got his first start as a driver with Ellesmere Transport Co Ltd. Luke spent four years with Ellesmere, and although his father was driving bulk units there, Luke was straight into a livestock unit as that had always been a part of the boyhood dream. After driving a 460hp Mercedes-Benz, followed by a 540hp one, an opportunity presented itself to Luke via the parents of one of his school buddies to drive for E. D. Swain Ltd on livestock at the helm of a brand new R620 Scania. “They were great times with a lot of laughs,” said Luke. “The opportunity to run down the road with your two best mates from school in the one fleet was an immense amount of fun, living the dream.” It was then a call out of the blue from CPT based on a conversation some years earlier about possibly working for them that brought a job offer his way.

year with CPT has been spent at the wheel of an older 3254 Mercedes-Benz Actros which he has handed back to take control of the new 3263 Arocs. Talking with Luke about the new truck he is quick to bestow praise upon the big Benz and how smooth it is in the ride he and his four-legged passengers receive. However, as we have seen before, livestock drivers that have a solid farming background instinctively have a genuine concern for their cargo and this is reflected in their fluidly smooth driving style; Luke is no exception to this rule. The other passenger who is enjoying the comfort of the Arocs is Luke’s eldest son Jake. At just three years of age, Jake is already jumping into the cab whenever possible. After a recent trip with Luke carting a load of hoggets, young Jake proceeded to go to preschool and much to the horror and despair of his classmates told them that woolly sheep became lamb chops for the BBQ and little piggies were turned into bacon. It seems to us that the apple has not fallen too far from the tree and a new generation of livestock driver is coming up through the ranks. Rest assured young Jake has an exceptional teacher.

CPT run their trucks South Island-wide and so mechanical specification is all about the bigger picture rather than the flatas-a-pancake region of domicile. So, like the Ranui Haulage 2663 Actros we tested in August last year, the first of three new Arocs 8x4s coming to CPT was chosen from the top of the Mercedes-Benz tree. Under the flattest of flat-floored cabs is the magnificent ‘Blue Efficiency’ OM473 15.6-litre engine. It’s a straightsix unit with impressive performance credentials of 469kW (630hp) at 1600rpm and 3000Nm (2213lb/ft) of torque at 1100rpm. But there’s a little more in all that than meets the eye as 2500Nm (1845lb/ft) of that torque figure is available from 800rpm. Remember that’s the absolute peak torque figure for the 2009 truck. The torque curve is flat from 1000 to 1400rpm but in all reality the entire pulling power of the engine is available from 900rpm. At 1400rpm, where torque begins to check out, the motor’s producing about 415kW (556hp); again greater than the peak power of the 2009 truck. In terms of cleanliness it’s been a big decade too. The 2009 truck was a Euro 3 (shock horror, yuck, how did we all survive), although the Euro 4 was right on the doorstep and pre-orders of that engine were making the ordering of a second truck identical to the test unit a bit of a challenge. The new Arocs is a Euro 6 and that’s certainly the opposite from last time in that CPT is ahead of the game. The Euro 6 rating comes via EGR, SCR, and DPF. The engine features the X-Pulse fuel injection system where individual cylinders have injection pressures tailored to current operating requirements, a patented asymmetric turbocharger that does away with the need for variable pitch veins. In addition there’s turbo compounding in the form of a second turbo downstream of the main unit that makes use of exhaust gas temperature maintained after the gas has flowed through the exhaust gas turbocharger, and transfers power direct to the engine’s gear drive via a shaft and hydrodynamic clutch set up. It’s this unit that’s responsible for much of the engine’s eager response and frugal appetite for fossil fuel. Rear of the engine is the PowerShift 3 12-speed AMT with EcoRoll, an improved version of the one that was making its debut in the 2009 truck. The PowerShift 3 has a 20% improvement in shift times over its predecessor, and if changes

were difficult to detect in 2009, they’re almost an illusion now. Although different shift maps are available to tailor the truck to a specific application, Prestige Commercial Vehicles product support manager Steve Blackie said as yet they haven’t needed to do that. Transmitting the power to the road is one of the key places the Arocs differs from its highway breed sibling. The CPT truck has two Mercedes-Benz H7 13,000kg rated, planetary hub reduction rear axles with full diff and cross locks. The second unit will also have the ‘hubbys’ but unit three will be the first of the new breed of Arocs equipped with the hypoid drive axles found as standard fare in the Actros. The rear suspension is the Mercedes 8-bag air with stabiliser bar and shock absorbers. Up front are proprietary front axles rated at 7,500kg and mounted on tapered parabolic leaf springs with shock absorbers and stabiliser bar. Although the Arocs options are now far more closely aligned to the Actros, the heftier Arocs crossmembers remain. Chassis mods were one of the real features of the new range when it was launched, with an increased chassis width and a stiffer tail section, improving both stability and handling characteristics. It’s interesting to note another Arocs /Actros quirk is the front axle on the Arocs being 100mm rear of the front axle position on the Actros. This is something that needs to be taken into consideration when calculating lengths, etc. Warranty on the new truck is two-year bumper-to-bumper, and four-year or 800,000km on the driveline. There’s a full and comprehensive service package available with the trucks, but unlike the Ranui operation that went with the full monty Complete Care package, Mike and CPT co-owner Richard Bell have decided not to. “I can’t see the benefit in the outlay,” said Mike. “When you look at the run we’ve had from the product over the years, it’s just not worth it for us. I mean look at the standard warranty.” The Arocs is on an 80,000km service interval (140,000km in some European applications), something many Kiwi operators will take a little getting used to. “It’s something that requires a little management,” said Steve Blackie. “The truck’s one thing, but trailers, particularly their brakes, require a service every 20,000km. We’re bringing them in at 20 for what we call an ‘A’ service and that allows us to do a visual on the truck at the same time, and look for any chafing etc. There’s only a few grease nipples on the entire truck.” New Zealand Trucking

Enough to make trucks of old go ‘wobbly’ at the wheels with fear and trepidation.

Oh Shenandoah, I long to see you

Had they been able to, there wouldn’t have been too many trucks that would have sung the great fur traders’ ode to themselves as they pulled their load toward the Lewis Pass and beyond, but for the general populous of big modern gear, the topography is merely an inconvenience. We met Luke and the 3263 just on dawn in the Mt Somers region of Canterbury. As it was nine years ago, we were loading ewes for the Alliance works in Stoke, 389 to be exact, a load that would have the Arocs right on its 50MAX limitation. Luke’s a seasoned stockman and had the unit loaded in well under the hour, and the Arocs departed and accelerated off like a ute towing a trailer. The chase was on! Mike Cowens said that the tare’s a bit high on the first truck, tipping the scales at 14,800kg with fuel, driver, and crates, and 25,500kg for the entire 9-axle combination, giving a payload of 24,500kg. “That’s about 400kg more than I’d like it but I’ll live with it when the longevity and reliability is taken into account,” he said. “Having said that, we are looking to trim the future ones up a bit.” Monocoque crates on the second and third units and hypoid diffs on the third unit will help remove some excess fat. Luke runs the unit in auto and cruise for much of the day. The steepest pinch on the Hope Saddle saw 7th gear at 1300rpm and 27km/h with the majority taken in 8th at 1500rpm and 38km/h. Although the cruise control and engine brake are connected, allowing the truck to sort out the descents, deciding on gear and ferocity of engine braking, Luke’s grassroots beginnings see him preferring to take over and adhere to proven principles he’s comfortable with, opting for a gear or two under the ascending speed, so avoiding the possibility of any ‘moments’. After all, as clever as the big Benz might be, it can’t accommodate the lunacy that might be happening just around the next bend. While we’re talking safety, the Arocs comes with all you’d expect from a Mercedes-Benz of 2018 in the form of predictive cruise control, electronic disc brakes, all with the integrated

Telligent braking feature that encompasses ABS and ASR. The 2009 truck was equipped with a Voith retarder, a feature that Mike extolled the virtues of on that test. Pre-release Mercedes-Benz made much of the new engine’s in-house three-stage engine brake, saying in 99% of situations it will be more than adequate. So far that’s proven to be the case, with 475kW (633hp) of retardation available in stage three. Considering the nature of the landscape between Canterbury and Nelson and a maximum gross weight, there were precious few dabs on the brake pedal. Clearing Nelson, it was an overnight stop before loading 39 highly excitable, rising steers out of the region, bound for North Canterbury. The load grossed the truck out at well under capacity and posed no issue whatsoever on the run home. In the 2009 test we noted the interior environment was quiet and the ride smooth. The new machines take that sentiment to the next level with a whisper quiet interior that hovers around 57dB at cruise, albeit with enough engine note to keep you in touch with goings on below, not having to rely entirely on soulless gauges. As we’ve said before, the art of cab ride dynamics is something modern man has nailed. The electronically managed four-airbag and shock absorber set-up in the Arocs whisks the driver and passenger along in a near perfect state by today’s standards. Ride through the corners is firm, stable and communicative, incredible when you think all told there’s 13 bags of air between the driver’s arse and the bitumen. Talking consumption for a moment, it appears the economy claims of Mercedes-Benz as a result of the compound turbo set-up on the OM473 are once again bearing fruit. Readers will remember the two Ranui Haulage units were running at 2.0kpl out of the box at maximum loading. Because the load factor on stock is slightly more fickle, Mike reports a consumption figure on the new truck north of 2.3kpl! “It’s early days but the consumption is bloody outstanding. I think everyone’s surprised.” At 23m, 9 axles, and 50 tonne, there’s a whole lot of imposing

Farm access ways that don’t have a milk tanker implementation have not kept pace with bigger trucks.

truck in the Arocs. One thing that hasn’t changed in the past 40 or so years is the access to farm loading ramps and that was clearly evident at the unloading point in Amberley. Luke’s lineage, coolness and skills came to the fore getting big blue through the gates and into position. Everything counts as they say, and the long wet grass, soft paddocks, an enormous barge of a trailer with its tri-axle set aft thwarted the Mercedes’ last efforts to back into the ramp even with the ‘crosseys’ in. It’s no slight on the tractive ability of the truck. We thought it did outstandingly well even getting into the gate from the long grass on the road verge. The trailer was emptied via the portable ramp at which point the unit easily backed up the last 15m to the main ramp. Two things we did notice through the entire mission was the steering lock on the unit and the usability of AMT. The 5150mm wheelbase (German spec; in NZ lingo it’ll be

5825mm), means the turning circle was not an issue, and being able to flick from forward to reverse while trying to get the truck and trolley through the farm-sized gate off a narrow gravel road must have truly been a blessing for Luke.

The farmer’s best friend

The Arocs’ ability as a truck is without question, but the benefits from all this power and tech reach far beyond what may have driven the initial purchase decisions, and could well bear fruit over time in the form of a much enlarged debtors ledger. Firstly, the set-up. With the help of Theo and Steve the suspension on the CPT Arocs has been set up with a low ride option specifically targeting stock units, but as Steve noted, attracting the interest of the cube obsessed freight fraternity also. Resetting ride heights and reconfiguring front spacers results in a chassis height just behind the gearbox of 950mm on 275/70 rubber, a saving of 100mm over normal, making Mercedes the industry leader here. The implications on crate design in the drive to eliminate back rub on stock are significant. Second is the way the truck performs in relation to the load. While it’s easy to wax lyrical on the environment the truck provides for its human occupants, watching the 3263 drift smoothly and effortlessly through the rises and falls, twists and curves of the Lewis Pass and Shenandoahs brought home immediately – and visually – the effect on the occupants rear of the cab. It’s something that Luke’s also noticed. “The stock are in amazing nick when they reach their destination,” he said as we released the steers into the paddock in North Canterbury. “Take these young fellas we brought back. They were a lively bunch when they went on but usually after four or five hours in the truck there’s a little bit of wind gone from the sails. But these fellas haven’t lost their spark at all. Likewise, the sheep yesterday. I had to wake a heap of them up, and that’s been a common thing even in the short time I’ve been on this unit.”

Again we walk away from the new Mercedes range mightily impressed. From Mike Cowens’ and Richard Bell’s perspectives it totally reinforces their preference for the brand and the reasons why that preference exists. Performance, technology, and time will tell, but there’s no reason why these trucks should be any less reliable than all the others the company has owned. Luke’s driven a lot of trucks but he’s the first to say he wouldn’t drive anything else but one of these now.

TMC Trailers Trucking Industry Show 2018 Bigger and better still

Story and photos by Dave McCoid and Carl Kirkbeck

With a recipe that’s worked a treat in the first two events, this year’s TMC Trailers Trucking Industry Show kept a good thing going, retaining the same family feel and sense of industry cameraderie.

T

he trucks and displays came from far and wide to the Canterbury A&P Showgrounds. Although some we talked to wondered about the move away from Wigram, the showgrounds proved just as userfriendly, with great access and oodles of space. Three hundred and fifty trucks and more than 70 trade exhibitors and displays from all corners of the country kept 23,000 visitors fizzing over two days. The Friday trade day was also student day. More than 200 senior high school students identified by teachers as potential transport career candidates were hosted in groups around the participating exhibitors who gave them a behind-the-scenes look at opportunities in the industry. Some were offered work experience, and most were surprised at the pay rates available. The careers showcase was a deemed a huge success. NZ Trucking Association CEO, Dave Boyce said the students were treated to a barbecue lunch and truck rides, and had plenty of free time to explore the rest of the show. “They all left with goodie bags, filled with exhibitor giveaways throughout the day. The teachers’ feedback has been positive, and they have already shown interest in booking more students for the 2020 show.”

Saturday saw more than 250 trucks competing for the 40 awards. With some Show and Shine trucks travelling hundreds of kilometres to get there in time. “The effort the drivers go to to prepare their trucks is greatly appreciated and they truly make the event,” said Boyce. During the day, TR Group ran the Trucking Relay Competition, which attracted seven teams wanting to show off their manoeuvring, loading, and tarping skills, along with a display of brute strength as they pulled a truck on the end of a rope along the tarmac. Teams from both islands competed, with the Auckland quartet of John Baillie, Stuart Howard, Mathew Young and Shaun Reynolds taking away the grand prize of a trip for four to the 2019 Brisbane Truck Show. The kids’ activities on Saturday also kept attendees busy. Monitored by volunteers from Child Cancer Foundation Canterbury and Ronald McDonald House SI, they included the Heavy Trucks bouncy castle, giant sandpit, kids’ colouring tent, CablePrice kids’ digger, RC Haulers radio control trucks, and truck photo boards. The show shop was popular, selling out of around 400 toy trucks brought in especially for the event. The Safety MAN Road Safety Truck was on site, with tips on how to share the road safely with big trucks, as well as giving the truck drivers an insight into how they can stay healthy on the road. The event was rounded off with a celebration dinner for 400 people held at TMC Trailers’ workshop. Vintage themed metal truck centrepieces, LED truck brands signs, and one-off specially designed tyre bar leaners courtesy of Carters Tyres were auctioned on the night. The Trucking Industry Show has an ‘X-factor’ for sure and the NZ Trucking Association team put a huge effort into every detail. With more great ideas already on the board it’s a case of roll on 2020. We will be there. 

“From horse and dray” Story by David Kinch Photos by David Kinch and as credited

Celebrating 150 years in transport is a truly astonishing achievement, yet the New Zealand Express Transport brand continues to be strong.

O

n 4 November 2017 New Zealand Express Transport celebrated 150 years in the transport industry with an event put together by a dedicated and enthusiastic team of company staff. The gathering consisted of current and former employees of the company, clients and service providers, and a number of current trucks polished up and on display, as well as the 1970 KDLC5 Bedford truck restored by Kevin ‘Barney’ McGrath and Colin Richens.

Campbell & Crust was founded in 1867 by the original partnership of Duncan Campbell and Henry Crust, who described themselves as ‘General Carriers, Customs, Shipping, Baggage and Express Forwarding Agents’. The name ‘New Zealand Express Company Limited’ was added to the company title at the time the express forwarding department was added to operations in the entity’s early trading years. The company policy was ‘To advance with the times, to make every provision for all possible requirements, to further extend its operations and to meet the demand of ever increasing traffic’, which the current general manager, John Petrie, said he can clearly see holds true in the business today. Born in Wainfleet, Lincolnshire, England, Henry Crust was the son of a farmer. The family travelled to Victoria, Australia, where from the age of four, Henry was educated. Arriving in New Zealand in 1862 Dunedin was the place to be, with the discovery of gold leading to immense growth in the region. Henry worked as a stock rider until starting the company with Duncan Campbell. Four years later on 27 April 1871, he married Jessie Wood, and the couple produced a family of three sons and three daughters. Unfortunately, in 1883 Duncan Campbell died, leaving Henry Crust to take over as the sole owner, the company becoming known as Crust & Crust (Henry possibly bringing his son into the business, who at the time was running the Invercargill branch). In 1895 the New Zealand Express Company Limited became a public company.

With Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland growing in size and importance the company grew with them, opening new branches with further operations in smaller towns like Timaru, Invercargill and Wanganui among others. By now the company owned large numbers of trucks, wagons and drays. Along with running the company Henry Crust was very active in the community, becoming a Dunedin councillor between 1898 and 1907 and chairman of the reserves committee.

Diversification

Henry Crust was one of the New Zealand Express Company

By 1906 the New Zealand Express Company had become a pioneer in the construction of reinforced concrete office blocks, completing a new seven-storey building in Christchurch, the tallest building in New Zealand at the time. The building survived until the September 2010 earthquake, after which it was demolished. A similar building erected in Dunedin a few years later and proudly displaying The New Zealand Express Co name, still stands. In the early 1900s the New Zealand Express Company had also become agents for the British Orwell electric battery powered trucks, along with being the importer for Dennis and

founders with partner Duncan Campbell. Campell died 16 years into the venture.

There’s nothing new under the sun. Two of The New Zealand Express Company’s Orwell electric trucks on metro delivery work in the early part of the last century.

Studebaker trucks, brands they ran in their ever-expanding fleet. Like the steam engine the electric motor could produce 100 percent of its torque from the first revolution, and with no transmission the electric trucks were ideal for local deliveries and heavy duty hauling over short distances. On 10 May 1926, aged 78, Henry Crust died following a prolonged illness. At the time of his death he was also chairman of directors at the Nokomai Hydraulic Sluicing Company. He was widely admired by many, and it was said that it was a pleasure to meet him whether on a business or personal level.

Tough times and new paths

The death of Henry Crust, the stock market crash, and the Great Depression of the 1930s that followed, saw the New Zealand Express Company broken up, with various regional offices sold to independent owners. The new operators still ran under the New Zealand Express Company name but with their region in brackets. The red and cream livery of that era is still on the trucks today. In 1935 the Auckland branch was purchased by Maurice Simson, establishing itself as NZE (Auckland) Ltd. Eventually all of the other NZ Express outlets were absorbed by other

firms, including Christchurch, which was purchased by Freightways. With the Auckland branch performing well, in 1968 Simson acquired Wellington business Morris and Campbell, which became NZ Express Wellington. Once Wellington was set up, in 1974 Simson made his next move and acquired Christchurch business Brightlings Transport, changing the name to Brightlings Express and subsequently NZ Express Christchurch Ltd. Brightlings Transport, which was started by John Brightling, began operations in the same year as the original NZ Express Company back in 1867. If anything it was a strategic purchase given the company’s depot on Chapmans Road in Woolston was in the perfect location between Lyttelton and the Christchurch CBD. The Simson family also purchased local Christchurch business J Dayle & Co who held the Firestone Tyre (today known as Bridgestone Tyres) transport contract. NZ Express still provides container transport services to this day, and in turn Bridgestone is the tyre service provider to NZ Express.

Post deregulation

In the 1980s deregulation contributed to the closing of the Auckland and Wellington branches (although freight forwarding activities continued in these cities until they were sold off in 1997), leaving Christchurch standing alone as the sole NZ Express branch. At the start of the 1990s NZ Express acquired local company Horton & Bidwell along with setting up a NZ Express Freight facility at Christchurch Airport. The company at this stage was running a variety of trucks including European brands Volvo and Scania, with a large percentage of owner-drivers adding their own style to the fleet, which totalled 36 trucks. The work was allocated on a first in, first served basis, depending on vehicle suitability. This style continued until 2005 when the Lyttelton Port Company (LPC) acquired NZ Express Christchurch Ltd from the Simson family, mainly for the land and rail siding on Chapmans Road, and the container handling services.

As the LPC had no intention of being a transport services provider, this part of the company was put up for sale and purchased by Wilson Bulk Transport, Philip Wareing Limited and the Petrie family, which led to the name change, NZ Express (2006) Ltd. Once the new owners took over the reins they invested in new dispatch management software that in conjunction with Navman GPS, allowed the dispatchers to send job orders directly to the trucks, significantly improving efficiency. Faced with the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) in 2008/9, the ownership group was forced to make some very tough business decisions. John Petrie, who was the general manager at the time, had

the unenviable task of informing some of the owner-drivers that they were no longer required, reducing the fleet from 36 to 24. It was done to save the jobs of the remaining employees, and not doing so would have placed the entire business in jeopardy. By doing so John, who admits this was one of his darkest moments in his time as a manager, saved the company, allowing it to carry on. With the GFC behind them, NZE had a go at anything they could, from packing logs into containers, working scrap boats (putting scrap bins on container trailers), and container transport, devanning, storage, and bulk load out for cement transport. Over-dimensional loads have always been a feature of NZ Express’s work, transporting houses and machinery amongst other items. The company recently facilitated the shipside unload and transport to Kaikoura of 96 accommodation units used to house the staff working on the November 2016 earthquake restoration. These units were all over-width and had to be transported at night through the inland road, which proved quite a challenge as the road conditions were not ideal. Another significant part of business today is providing a container devanning service on their purpose-built site at 32 Kennaway Road, which was opened for business back in

2014. Container contents – which can include anything and everything from a 5kg carton to power poles and motor vehicles – can also be stored and delivered as required. Basically, if it fits in a container the team at NZ Express can handle it! The current fleet of 41 units has been upgraded with some combinations able to transport 32 tonne containers. Four units are capable of carting 3x20 foot containers – two of which are empty – and there’s a Kenworth K200 day cab 8x4 tractor unit matched to a Fruehauf 40-20 B-train set with a gross operating weight capability of 59 tonne. There are also six units that can tip a container carrying bulk commodities, as well as a transporter for carrying over-height containers. Containers make up a large part of the daily work and the

10 side lifters that deliver the containers onto client sites are kept busy, with the newest of these units able to cart 28 tonne containers, a far cry from the early days of a 19 tonne maximum. NZ Express (2006) Ltd also prides itself on being one of the leading companies in the country when it comes to the recruitment of females into the transport and warehousing industry, with six women currently driving and five in the dispatch/warehouse operations. With an average staff age of 44, they are well below the national average for the industry. John Petrie is very proud of the fact that younger people want to come and work for the company, something the industry in general desperately needs. 

My NZ Express Company story Written by George Kinch I worked at the NZ Express Company, Barnard Street, Timaru, back in 1964, firstly as an offsider on general freight trucks, furniture removals and seasonal farm work. Drivers’ wages were 12 pounds six shillings and four pence (net) per week ($24.63), for 40 hours plus overtime. I received extra when I got my articulated licence (class 5). On my first morning I was teamed with ‘Steakface’ Miller to go to the rail and load freight for around Timaru. ‘Steakface’ not only looked rough, but he talked with brevity and a growl. On our way to the rail he emphasised – twice – that we had to be in Browne Street by 10am (‘Urgent delivery,’ I thought). At about five to 10 we pulled up outside the smoko room at the Timaru Brewery at Browne Street and the message I got was “We’ll be here for a few” (minutes, I thought). But the main attraction was not in a teapot, but a beer hose through the wall and a tap just like the ones at the pubs at its end (but no till to ring up). ‘Steakface’ had his couple of ‘sevens’ (I had tea) and we commenced unloading from a cabover Morris flat deck.

Happy with what I get paid and I have a great boss.” “There are people within the industry who probably overrate themselves,”

Driving a 2017 Hino 500, Steven was a little out of his way as he’d had to take a load of cardboard through to Palmerston North from Marton as the baling plant at his home base in Wanganui was out of action. Steven has been working for EnviroWaste Services for 10 years, but says he’s been driving trucks on and off for about 25 years. “I originally got a job as a contractor and they put me through all my licences. That meant I could do all sorts of work there and I was able to get other jobs with trucks and machinery.” Steven enjoys driving, saying he finds it a pretty easy job to do and one that allows him to get out and about. He thought vexing question No 77, run or swim, was pretty random, but said he’d have to go with swim.

Andy Brockbank Dunedin’s Andy Brockbank was reloading with sealing chip near Beaumont when Craig Andrews bailed him up for quick chat. Andy drives a 2016 UD Quon GW 26-420 for McEwan Haulage based out of Dunedin and he’s currently on his second season contracted to Downer Group NZ, working on reseal sites throughout the South Island. “It’s a great truck. Comfortable, easy to drive being an auto. Great for what we do with it.” Andy started his career mostly on diggers with work experience at Forestry Roading Services and then onto Taieri Transport Services. After a time doing a bit of silage there he found his way into work at Blackhead Quarries operating plant and driving trucks there. He moved on to Downer Group in 2009 working on a sealing crew, working at Hall Brothers in the off-season, and in 2012 he went to McEwan Haulage where he’s been ever since.

Argosy invasion in Nelson forests Story and photos by Craig McCauley

Over the past decade Freightliner’s Argosy has formed the backbone of Nelson’s log truck fleet, with numbers operating throughout the district totalling close to 30.

S

tuart Drummond began business as a single truck owner-operator carting logs in 1985. The business has morphed into the current day Stuart Drummond Transport Limited operation, with Stuart’s son Brodie now assuming the role of company manager.

Brodie oversees the running of 36 trucks moving wood for a number of forestry interests throughout the Nelson, Marlborough and West Coast regions. Brodie said recent expansion in the company’s truck fleet has come about largely on the back of “loyal customers increasing production and the desire to grow alongside them”. Enter fleet number 281, one of a quartet of Freightliner Argosys to join the Stuart Drummond Transport Limited fleet in 2017. All four carry an identical spec, comprising a Detroit DD15 power plant producing 418kW (560hp) and 2508Nm (1850lb/ ft) of torque. This is transferred to the ground courtesy of a manual Eaton-Fuller RTLO-20918B transmission and 4.1:1 ratio Meritor RT46-160GP rear axles travelling on Freightliner’s Air Liner 46K rear suspension. The Drummond trucks all received Freightliner’s 75th

anniversary treatment, including extra soundproofing on the 90” cabs, and leather seats as part of an upgraded interior upholstery package. The Detroit power plant is covered by a four-year/800,000km extended warranty. Twin exhaust stacks and dual stainless air intakes are fitted, with the Top Truck also riding on Alcoa Dura-Bright wheels. Extra lights have also been fitted, making the unit a real standout on the road. Patchell fitted out the truck, and built the 5-axle multi bolster trailer with winch style chain tensioners and SI Lodec scales to assist in maximising payload. Operating on a 54 tonne route-specific HPMV permit, the Argosy works under Nelson Forests Limited (NFL) despatch, hauling from anywhere within the 78,000 hectares of forest NFL own in the province, to various upper South Island mills,

as well as export wharves in both Nelson and Picton. Brothers Kerry and Kingsley Pickering drive the Freightliner Monday to Friday on a 24-hour double-shift basis, with Kerry manning the day shift and Kingsley looking after nights. The Pickering boys are second-generation Nelson truck drivers and both have a well-deserved reputation for keeping the equipment they drive in pristine condition. Drummond’s operate six trucks on double-shift, which sees these trucks clocking up in excess of 200,000 kilometres per year. Shift trucks remain in the role for between two and three years before moving down through the fleet as single runners. Premium equipment, outstanding presentation and maximum utilisation make the Stuart Drummond Transport Freightliner Argosy an outstanding candidate for May 2018’s New Zealand Trucking magazine Top Truck. 

eceiving our regular flow of Good on ya Mate nominations is certainly a highlight. But when Malcolm Sutton from Knight and Dickey Transport in Waiuku contacted us and said, “I’d like to nominate Damon McFarlane for Good on ya Mate”, we said, “Yep sweet as Malcolm. Can you tell us what Damon did?” “Yeah sure, I was a goner and he saved my life.” “Aagghhh I beg your pardon????” A phone conversation ensued with Malcolm speaking from his hospital bed, bright, chirpy and alert, as if nothing had happened, but that was far from the truth. At about four in the afternoon on Friday 23 February Malcolm was on the top cab step of Damon’s truck chatting to him through the window when all of a sudden Malcolm said, “I’m not feeling too good.” He promptly fell and collapsed on the ground, banging his head on the way down and spraining his right ankle on landing. They weren’t in immediate earshot or view of anyone, and after Damon checked Malcolm’s vitals he realised the gravity of the situation and started CPR. “It’s been a while since I did my first aid course but it came back to me and I started the 32/1 I remember being taught. It’s pretty scary stuff,” said Damon. Minutes seemed like hours before his DANI1 TRUCKING AD.pdf 27/5/10 3:12:58 PM shouting found support. A call went

out to 111, and Damon got some help at the scene from workshop manager Karl Dickey and his father, John. The company defibrillator was grabbed from the office wall and rushed to the scene. While all this was going on local first aider Paul Griffin was working at a local panel shop when his phone app burst into life saying there was a man down at Knight and Dickey and it was serious. He bolted! Paul arrived as the ‘defib’ was being unpacked and took over, being best equipped to handle the gadget. Paul wired Malcolm up, and pressed the discharge button. “It seemed so long before the ambos got there,” said Damon. “I mean it wasn’t, not saying that at all, but man time slows down! I was buggered.” It turns out Malcolm essentially had a short circuit himself. Tests in hospital showed all the plumbing surrounding the heart to be clear, clean and in fine

order, but the heart’s electrical system was on the blink. “The doctors said it was all down to Damon and the team that helped me and kept the oxygen circulating. I was certainly a goner had they not been there,” said Malcolm. On the day we popped in everyone to a man at Knight and Dickey wanted us to stress to our readers the absolute importance of having a defibrillator on site at the depot. “We can’t convey how essential this piece of kit is,” said operations manager, Paul Oliver. “It may sit on the wall for years but you just don’t know at what moment it becomes the most valuable tool you have. The CPR was certainly essential, but Paul arriving and taking over certainly added to Malcolm’s chances.” So, how else do you say it to Damon on behalf of Malcolm and the entire industry but ‘Good on ya Mate’. 

‘Grind 2 Halt’ Story and photos by Dave McCoid

A stunning piece of enterprise and handiwork.

I

f you’re a trucker looking for a first-class coffee in the industrial area of Richmond near Nelson, there’s every chance it won’t be long before you grind to a halt at 44 Beach Road, at the premises of Mortimer Upholstery / Marine and Transport Covers. That’s the location of ‘Grind 2 Halt’, Steve and Kaye Hill’s fabulous coffee cart, made by Steve himself from an old Kenworth K model cab. Being a diesel mechanic and marine engineer it’s safe to assume Steve’s a clever man. Driving log trucks early in his life instilled a love of the Kenworth brand and he’s currently in the midst of a concours d’elegance level restoration of an ex-TNL K124CR in the shed at home. Enter the scene an ex-Rob Dahm donor cab Steve bought about a year ago. Once plundered for parts it sat outside, at which point Steve’s enterprising sweetheart, Kaye, had a ‘you beaut’ light bulb moment… “Coffee cart!” These people are doers, so Steve downed tools on the restoration for the time being and got stuck in. Initially the intention was a façade, in a similar vein to Willie Malcolm’s fantastic mobile bar, but…

Kaye in the old ‘Kdub’s’ new driving seat, so to speak. (It’s the flat floor cab too)


WWW.GOCLEAR.CO.NZ “I was talking to Willie and he said if he did another one he’d do the whole cab. So I thought I’d heed that advice,” said Steve. However, the need for some serious head-scratching soon became apparent. “The integrity in these cabs is in the engine tunnel; once it was out it was just a wobbly mess, so I had to build the tub it’s mounted on to give it strength, and Kaye the room she needed.” It wasn’t long before Steve and Kaye realised the day cab wasn’t going to provide the storage space needed for Kaye’s bits and pieces. As the men who drove it would agree, it’s a little cramped. So Steve being Steve, he added the quarter cab. Problem solved. Mounting the whole thing on a car trailer for mobility was obvious, but it also meant no one would be able to reach up and get their coffee off Kaye; so Steve being Steve, built the axle and wheel on a cantilever principle, allowing the trailer to be lowered to the ground. What a bloke! Once completed it was time for make-up; enter the scene Steve Foot aka ‘Footie’, proprietor of Footie Signs & Designs in Brightwater. Much thought went into the colour and graphics. “We wanted the colour to be in synch with the product and the truck. Something like blue wouldn’t work,” said Kaye. “And the name, Grind 2 Halt, it’s a mix of grinding the beans, stopping for coffee and the old cab’s last ever job probably.” Much thought has gone into the detail and titivations

– things like the entry and exit via the actual passenger door, the fact the cab lights all work, there’s Kenworth bugs on the upholstered door panel, there’s a clever play on the Cummins engine graphic, and the original build plate is still there on the left-hand door – the list goes on and truck buffs will be enthralled as they natter and sip away on their first, second and third coffees. The Kenworth will be at 44 Beach Road Monday to Friday and is most definitely available for shows and functions. So there it is. No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks, that really is an old Kenworth cab with a lovely friendly lady looking at you ready to make your next coffee, so why not ‘Grind 2 Halt!’  Contact Kaye for bookings on Steve.hill@xtra.co.nz Ph: 027 230-2632

I come to a land down-under Story by Howard Shanks Photos by Howard Shanks and Scania

Howard Shanks was one of a few technical journalists selected to test-drive Scania’s New Truck Generation (NTG) family when they first arrived down under. The NTG family, comprising P-, G-, Rand S-series cabs, focuses on driver safety, and all models are available in either Euro 5 or Euro 6 emissions compliance.

S

cania say the launch of their NTG family is designed continue the company’s market expansion and sales growth over the next decade, and contribute to a more sustainable transport industry in Australia and New Zealand. “The introduction of the NTG range, the safest and most fuel-efficient in Australia, is an absolute milestone for the Scania here,” says Mikael Jansson, managing director of Scania Australia.

New Zealand Trucking

May 2018

“It is undoubtedly the biggest investment in our 127-year history. As a global truck company, we have spent 10 years and AUS$3 billion researching and developing the new range as well as covering more than 12 million kilometres testing our new designs in all climates and on all types of roads. “The most noticeable features are of course the new cabs, but the real innovation is the introduction of new technologies, safety features, services, and insights that will help our customers gain an accurate overview of some of their most significant operating costs.” Mikael says on average across the range, Scania’s new trucks will consume around five percent less fuel and emit fewer emissions, particularly those equipped with Euro 6 aftertreatment. “We’re not only focused on the hardware. Our digitalised connected services provide further tools for enhanced optimisation of fleet and driver utilisation. We have unparalleled ability to tailor-make a specification to suit operators’ needs across a very broad array of applications, and coupled with our focus on driving down costs and eliminating waste for operators, we can demonstrate quite clearly how our NTG provides increased value to customers.” Judging by the response from operators in Europe, who Mikael says have ordered record numbers of the NTG, Scania has scored a direct hit. “In test after test by media across Europe, in isolation or


WWW.GOCLEAR.CO.NZ compared with direct rivals, the NTG has emerged as the best possible option in all of its formats, from long haulage to urban distribution and vocational applications.” The new trucks launched in Sydney are focused on the long and medium haul markets (S-, R- and G-series) as well as urban distribution (P-series), the new XT bulk construction materials handling range, along with the famous 4-door, 6-seater Scania CrewCab for the mining and firefighting market segments. Consistent with Scania’s long-standing ability for customers to tailor the specification of their vehicles exactly to their requirements, Scania’s famous modular drivetrain components have been thoroughly renewed to deliver significant fuel economy savings compared with the vehicles they replace. Scania’s in-house gearbox range is now fitted with a layshaft brake to speed up gear changes for smoother and more frugal performance. Scania claim that together with significant advances in aerodynamic design, the mechanical upgrades deliver at least five percent better fuel efficiency across the range. Scania is introducing a new 7.0-litre Euro 6 engine for P-series applications, while the heavily revised and updated, cleaner and more frugal 9.0-litre 5-cylinder, 13-litre 6-cylinder and 16-litre V8 engines are all offered in Euro 5 and Euro 6 guise. Continuing as the King of the Scania range is the 730hp V8. It’s now available across the R- and S-series ranges in Euro 6 guise.

Top: The dash looks very much like you’d expect from a next generation Scania, certainly an evolution of the breed. Lower left: a plethora of controls on the door sill. Looks expensive. Unlikely to be getting one of those from the wreckers. Lower right: Handy pull-out table.

Unique safety features

Scania’s New Truck Generation comes to market in Australia and New Zealand with a number of unique features designed to make the driver’s workplace safer, more comfortable, and more convenient. Chief among the unique innovations is a side curtain airbag fitted into both driver and passenger doors, designed to offer occupant protection in the event of a rollover. Scania estimates the side curtain airbag could result in a 25 percent reduction in the number of drivers killed annually in rollover accidents. The side curtain airbags join the standard driver airbag and seatbelt pre-tensioners, and an uprated braking system. Most noticeable up front is the new front suspension with the front axle moved 50 mm forward to provide a lower centre of gravity and less dive under braking. Scania say these chassis improvements increase stability and ride comfort, while reduced stopping distances – up to two metres shorter in some cases. The new cabins are said to be an even more robust all-steel impact resistant cab with improved driver visibility. Metro models get the new City Safe Window. This is inserted into the lower segment of the passenger door to provide truck drivers with much-needed additional visibility of cyclists and pedestrians who may otherwise be hidden from view at street corners or traffic lights. All NTG models benefit from re-profiled A-pillars, redesigned and improved mirrors, and a repositioned driver’s seat to improve the driver’s visibility at intersections.

Electronic Stability Programme, and Lane Departure Warning. To maintain driver health and reduce fatigue, Scania is offering access to a new, fully integrated auxiliary cab cooler that runs on battery power to maintain constant cabin temperatures when the vehicle and driver are at rest. All NTG V8 powered Scania prime movers are fitted with full LED lighting front and rear as standard, including Daytime Running Lamps. LED headlamps are available on other models, replacing the standard H7 halogen units. Living in the V8 and 500hp G-series cabs becomes more convenient with standard additional storage cupboards replacing the traditional (second) upper bunk, which is rarely utilised in Australia and New Zealand. In the V8, the driver’s pocket spring mattress extends to a full 1000mm wide.

More efficient, lower emitting engine ranges

Scania will offer V8 power across several outputs: 520hp and 620hp with Euro 5 compliance, and 520hp, 580hp, 650hp and 730hp outputs in Euro 6 guise. Demand for Euro 6 compliance in the previous V8 range began to accelerate through 2017 as more large fleets sought to reduce their environmental impact or comply with their customers’ carbon reduction requirements. On-board fuel capacity has been increased to 1100 litres for the Euro 6 compliance V8s, and 1210 litres for Euro 5 compliance. In the 6-cylinder, 13.0-litre category, Scania offers its most powerful in-line engine yet, at 500hp with 2550Nm (1881lb/ ft) of torque. This will be available in the G-series prime mover cab, rated for medium duty B-double and single trailer interstate and intra-state work, as well as for urban tipper and dog applications.

The G-series 6-cylinder engines will be available in Euro 6 at 370hp, 410hp, 450hp and 500hp, and identical outputs in Euro 5 with the exception of the 370hp engine which is offered at 380hp for Euro 5. In the urban distribution and vocational truck market, the new P-series will be offered from launch with a broad range of 5- and 6-cylinder engines, in both Euro 5 and Euro 6 trim, starting with the 5-cylinder 280hp, 320hp and 360hp outputs, rising to 370hp (380hp for Euro 5) through to 450hp for the 13-litre 5-cylinder. The P-series will also debut the new 6-cylinder lightweight 7.0-litre engine in Euro 6 guise only, in 220hp, 250hp and 280hp outputs, further assisting customers with additional payload, especially in the key applications like single trailer supermarket deliveries. Scania say their order books are now open, with the first deliveries expected early in the second half of the year.  Look for the full road test report in the next issue.

Feeling deflated and flat? Story by Brian Weatherley

All too often the forgotten parts of a lorry, but ones that can so easily let you down just when you need them. New Zealand Trucking magazine looks at how the latest tyre and battery technology could make sure you keep moving.

N

ame the most neglected parts on a lorry. If you answered tyres you’d be right. How often do you check the pressure in yours? Every week? Every month? For many drivers a ‘check’ amounts to a swift kick on the sidewall. If it feels hard, all’s well…if it gives a bit, well you can always shove some more air in somewhere down the road. If you remember. Of course we all know running with under-inflated tyres is a great way to waste money. The lower the pressure the greater the rolling resistance, so you’ll need to burn more diesel to overcome the drag. Under-inflated tyres also have to flex more and work harder, creating higher tyre distortion, generating more heat and greater wear, so you lose out on a tyre’s working life too. According to Continental Tyres UK (Conti), ‘A tyre which is 20% under-inflated results in a loss of mileage of around 18% – so around a fifth of its total mileage’. Worryingly, Conti reckons 20% is neither dramatic nor unusual, and they regularly find tyres that are 40 to 50% underinflated, so their loss of mileage will be far greater. When an under-inflated tyre gives up the ghost leaving you stuck on the roadside, along with a truck that’s not earning any money, you’ll also be paying a driver to sit on his ‘duff ’ waiting for someone to turn up with a new tyre.

The UK is unique in Europe in the sense that regardless of how many trucks you run, every pommie HGV is required by law to have a regular safety inspection that’s typically every six weeks. However, for those trucks engaged on high mileage/ high intensity operations or doing a lot of tough off-road work, the safety inspection interval could be as short as four weeks. But whatever the interval, a tyre inflation check will be one of the items on the safety inspection sheet. Along with those regular safety inspections (which are the responsibility of the operator), all UK truck drivers are required to fill out a daily defect report and tyres will definitely be on their checklist, along with all the usual suspects like lights, brakes, steering, wipers and so on. So that’s another opportunity to spot uneven wear, nasty sidewall bulges, cuts in the tread or sidewall, or a tyre that’s getting close to the legal limit on its tread, although on a cold, dark and wet winter morning I don’t suppose too many drivers have a tyre pressure gauge within handy reach. So that’s likely to be another kick up the sidewall. With all those safety inspections and daily walk-arounds you’d imagine blowouts would be rare in Britain. However, according to the latest available figures from Highways England (the executive agency which looks after England’s road network), 9% of the tyre-related incidents recorded during 2013/14 on UK major roads were truck and trailer blowouts. Moreover, as Conti points out, it’s exceptionally rare for a tyre to hit something sharp on the road and suffer an immediate failure. Usually it’s a very gradual loss of pressure and this is why Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) work. While TPMS have been around for many years, originally through the aftermarket sector but more recently from the truck and trailer makers, there are some interesting new developments on the horizon. With truck telematics capable of supplying constant vehicle and driver performance data in real-time between a lorry and its home base, Steve Howat, Continental Tyres UK’s general manager technical services,

The new Volvo optional battery system allows drivers to run plenty of in-cab electrical kit without the worry of flat batteries in the morning.

predicts tyre temperature and inflation information will be a standard addition in the near future. “We’re already seeing simple text and email alerts becoming a useful additional function when a tyre reaches an under-inflation or temperature threshold. This helps give fleet managers a tool to instigate further interrogation of the vehicle and understand how quickly the tyre is losing pressure and what specific action is required.” As most heavy trucks are already sold with a telematics package, Howat adds: “For many fleets it is logical to integrate [tyre performance] into existing telematics, and monitor pressure at base, to avoid additional driver distraction in the cab. Integration into telematics either via OEM-developed systems or retrospective units is something Continental Tyres is working on with a variety of technology partners.” With telematics you could also cross-reference a truck’s fuel economy with its tyre pressures and find out if you were paying for any under-inflation. That’s something Continental is already working on. So-called ‘smart’ or connected motorways could also be tied in to TPMS. Howat reports that Highways England is currently exploring how TPMS might work within these new connected routes. “For example, traffic management systems could be linked in order that a trigger is sent when a tyre is going down and a gantry warning could advise a driver.” It’s a fascinating possibility for dealing with under-inflation promptly, assuming of course the driver is prepared to do something about it, rather than shrug it off with the usual ‘I haven’t got time to stop now…I’ll do it when I get back home’. “The next step will be more sophisticated sensors measuring tread depth and lateral forces – true ‘intelligent’ tyres, allowing

operators to fully understand how the tyre is being driven and where potential failures may occur,” says Howat. Right now TPMS is mandated on all new cars sold in Europe. However, before they can become standard on HGVs the manufacturers and legislators will need to come up with a common protocol that works for both trucks and trailers. While we’re on the subject of neglected bits on a truck, hands up all of you who said ‘batteries’? I’m sure some New Zealand Trucking readers must have experienced feeling flat when turning the ignition key in their lorry and nothing’s happened. No throaty cough, no steady vroom-vroom, just empty silence. Fortunately Volvo has come up with a solution that could put an end to those red-faced moments – at least in Europe. With its latest battery system, optional on FM and FH chassis, now you not only have all the power you need for in-cab kit like fridges, laptops, phones, microwaves, coffee makers, TVs etc., but you also no longer need to worry about a no-go due to flat batteries. It’s actually very simple. What the Swedes have done is create two separate battery sets – one for starting the engine, the other for handling all the other in-cab electricals. Thus, as the starter battery’s only function is to crank the engine, it’s not affected by power consumption in the rest of the truck. “Drivers can enjoy improved comfort and living conditions, knowing that they have enough power for their needs, with minimal risk of draining all the power from the starter batteries,” says Samuel Nerdal, product manager electrical and electronics at Volvo Trucks. Compared with a conventional two-battery standard installation, Volvo’s new system uses four batteries divided

Partner by name and nature Story and photos by Jacqui Madelin

Not every task needs a big, unwieldy van. Sometimes a smaller footprint works best – especially when it comes with a useful cargo space, a useable cabin, and a price that spells value.

A

van can seem an intimidating beast to the everyday driver. It might be a toy compared with a truck, but beside a car it’s big, blocky, and delivers poor all-round vision. For some the compromises aren’t worth it if you don’t need to carry half a warehouse, and do need to be able to park frequently in ordinary spaces or underground parking buildings. Which is where Peugeot’s Partner steps in. The cabin is all car and so is the footprint, but there’s a generous and wellthought-out cargo area out back which can easily be configured to most tasks. Sadly, it didn’t quite work for our standard load, an IBC on a pallet. The rear doors open out to 180 degrees to give a forklift driver the maximum space to move, and our pallet would have gone between the wheel arches, but was a scant 1.5cm too tall to pass the door catch — so we went for load plan B, and came away deeply impressed – not least at the fabulous deal. The Partner van first arrived here in 2009, when it retailed at $36,990. It has since had a facelift to match its look with the

rest of the Peugeot family, but otherwise the most significant change has been the drop in price to $26,990, and the recent addition of windows for the two sliding rear doors, which make manoeuvring, or managing awkward angles at junctions, far safer as vision out is much improved. Under the car-like bonnet there’s a 1.6-litre high-pressure direct-injection turbo-diesel engine transferring power to the wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission. Admittedly we never carried the maximum 750kg load, but the Partner felt strong in all conditions we encountered thanks to the 215Nm torque, and the fact it peaks at just 1500rpm, which meant that at round-town speeds the Partner was willing and brisk, while happy to cruise at open-road speeds. The cabin itself was easy to navigate around, as basically it’s a car, with two airbags, cruise control with a speed limiter, rear park aids, Bluetooth hands-free, and air con. But there also practical features we wish more car designers would consider, like a sliding drawer under the passenger seat to keep spare guff safe, or your wallet out of sight. There’s a bag hook in the cabin on the passenger side to stop your shopping/takeaways/satchel sliding about, and as well as the small glovebox, there’s another storage compartment in the dash above the steering wheel, while the centre seat delivers a desk when it’s folded down. In theory a driver can carry two passengers in what Peugeot calls a Multi-Flex passenger seat, but they’d have to be slim. Behind you there’s the cargo barrier, which is standard fit, and includes a flip-down section so you can fold the front passenger seat forward and flat for longer loads. The load area itself is 2050mm long and 1229 wide, to deliver a load space of 3.7 cubic metres, or 4.1 if you’re using that space vacated by folding the seat.

The Peugeot is the perfect Partner for car-sized deliveries when you have more than a car can handle.

The load space is very easy to access thanks to the two back and two side doors; effectively you can reach most of it, and all of the six tie-down hooks, without having to climb aboard. Which came in useful when we put Plan B into play. A neighbour was moving house and had misjudged the amount of guff to pack into the car after the furniture truck had left. The Partner was pressed into service, picking its way down a steep, potholed rural drive, manoeuvring round a turning area cluttered with pots and boxes – the rear park aids, side windows and effective side mirrors delivering a tag team to

The driver’s compartment is just a car in all reality, offering an intimidation factor of zero.

prevent a collision — then opening its doors to receive chairs and a table, filing cabinets and boxes, poster tubes and much, much more, very little of it sensibly packed. It was like loading Mary Poppins’ handbag. The Partner would look full, but when another box appeared, it went in without effort. Then the diesel engine virtually idled the whole lot back up that steep, potholed drive, and off we went. Naturally many buyers will be keener to fit shelves and brackets out back, and put the Partner into service as a mechanic’s van, or similar. But regardless of what you’re carrying, you’ll enjoy the car-like handling and comfortable ride, no doubt achieved thanks to the fact this platform is shared with the likes of Peugeot’s 307 and 308 hatch.

You’re also likely to enjoy the fuel economy. The official combined claim is 5.5l/100km, or 6.3 for city driving, not far off what we achieved with a combination of hilly and urban driving, and almost no open roading. Really the only niggle was the noise from the open box out back, but that’s par for the workhorse course, assuming you don’t fit sound-deadening to the panels. Partner seems a good name for this Peugeot. One can see it as a well-priced service van – a mechanic’s sidekick – or pressed into use for last-mile deliveries in busy urban centres: ably dispatching any task requiring carriage of goods or tools along with a compact footprint and a comfy environment from which to work, whatever the distance to be accomplished in the process. 

Clarity, quality and self-worth! Update from Steve Divers

Story and photos by Faye Lougher

Steve Divers addresses attendees at last year’s RTF conference

The transport industry is crying out for skilled drivers and Steve Divers is leading the initiative to encourage more people to enter the industry.

D

ivers said last year was very much a scoping exercise while the trucking industry and the Government’s Sector Workforce Engagement Programme (SWEP) looked at how big the problem was. “We also looked at whether the source information we were working to was correct, what some of the barriers were for us to be able to recruit, and if there were entry points we could leverage.” There were currently five tertiary institutes (Northtec, Bay of Plenty – Toi Ohomai, Eastern Institute in Gisborne, Whitireia in Wellington, and SIT in Invercargill) that offered a level three Certificate in Commercial Road Transport. Due to limited resources they’re unable to produce trained drivers. Divers completed a stocktake in May last year, and the consensus was those existing programmes should be supported. The North Island institutes have undertaken a review of their qualifications, with a view to changing the programme from a unit standards based approach – very one-size-fits-all – to something that’s more vocational and can be delivered in a work environment. The four North Island institutes have split the courses into five key modules, bringing in a requirement for work experience. Divers said the new programmes would be a hybrid, with a unit standard portion for licensing but with work experience being run in one or two modules, with a requirement that the student would need to be in a work placement in order to pass the course.

“This places a high emphasis on the industry stepping up and saying that they will take people on or offer training opportunities in their business for those wishing to learn those skills.” Another area they were trying to grow was getting more tertiary institutions offering training. “The Manakau Institute of Technology hopefully will be coming on board this year. We’re trying to get at least one place in Auckland to be able to provide the level 3 certificate and the necessary training. We’ll be approaching operators to see if they’re willing to allow the students to drive their vehicles and gain experience onsite.” Divers said it was early days, but they were also looking at working with Ara Institute in Timaru, and possibly Christchurch. “That is being spearheaded by Aoraki Developments, which is the economic development agency. We’ve also been working with Activate Tairawhiti in Gisborne, because they’re looking at helping increase their pool of drivers, utilising local providers and the Eastern Institute of Technology.” Divers said Steve Phelps at Eastern Institute of Technology was starting a course that came into being with input from Activate Tairawhiti, a regional economic group that has a specific road transport working group. “They are doing something very different there because they wanted to put their own log truck and trailer on. There is a Super Skid about 15 to 20kms outside of Gisborne that runs pretty much 24/7. They are trying to secure funding to put their own truck on, and operate on a cost-neutral basis by being able to charge out those loads, and reinvest that money into keeping the truck on the road.” Divers said that works well because they have got a high density of logging vehicles in the region, but other companies doing line haul and fresh produce carting would also benefit from the course. “They would be able to access people who have a number of hours driving truck and trailer units, which is really important.


WWW.GOCLEAR.CO.NZ And this is where they always struggle, the number of hours they can spend in their own vehicles, because three of the institutes are heavily reliant on Fonterra to supply a truck and a trailer unit for their use. There is still a high degree of charity as it were.” Divers said a cadetship programme was the next phase in trying to recruit more truck drivers. “We’ve got one that’s kicked off in Dunedin, just as a bit of a trial and error, to see what works and what doesn’t. We teamed up Dunedin Carrying Company, a logging company that runs a class 5 fleet only, with Fulton Hogan. They employed a guy who had just got his class 4, but didn’t have any experience. He worked two days a week for them and three days with Fulton Hogan, and he drove one of their 2-axle tippers. The beauty about that was he could be utilised and he worked in a transport operation and gained valuable experience. He’s now done his class 5 and is driving a log truck and trailer unit for Dunedin Carrying Company.” One of the key areas Divers wanted to address was the fact only a third of those under the age of 25 were likely to have a full car licence. “It’s really to try and educate operators and say, ‘you’re going to have to lower your sights from class 5, 4, even a class 2, to bringing somebody on who is unskilled, who might still be on a restricted car licence, and finding opportunities for those young people to experience your culture in the company. Employ them in an unskilled role, where you can, and really try and develop them in a cadetship.” Information gleaned over the past year will be put into a business plan that will be presented to the board. “That’s really about how do we get the outcome and what do those outcomes look like. It’s not just about getting drivers in, it’s about promoting the industry and about helping operators become great operators, and what they need to do to be able to support training. We’ve been looking at developing a charter that industry can sign up to, running regional cadetships, and coordinating that activity to start feeding the pipeline of young people into our companies.” Divers said there had been an unrealistic expectation that within one year X-many drivers would be plugging gaps. “We found it’s not just a case of grabbing young people and getting them a licence. We’ve got to find those people first of all because we’re competing against other industries. We’ve got to identify where those training opportunities are to get them licensed and gain experience, so all that hard work’s had to take place before we could start recruiting directly. “I think the transport industry is one of those industries where we all expect somebody else will fix the problem and we’re fighting that mind-set. The industry will need to adopt these cadet programmes in order to bring people through, and that we have some level of consistency with the expectations of what people actually need to learn while they are in a cadetship.” MITO was also reviewing its suite of qualifications, with one change being to bring the loader/yard person qualification up from a level 2 to level 3. “The reason being is that we want to use that qualification to target the schools. We have nothing at the moment, and we need to be able to deliver something in either a Gateway, a Trades Academy or a Three-plus-Two programme that’s in years 12 and 13. To be able to do the year 13 programmes they need to be level 3 NCEA equivalent, so we’ve had to go with

that level 3 programme. And that isn’t so much about driving, it’s about transport-related skills that can be taught to years 12 and 13 so they can get their NCEA credits and then partway through we can line them up with an operator to get them into their business to start experiencing working in the industry. “And that obviously kicked off the start point for the other qualification, which is the Certificate of Commercial Road Transport. The reason why we’re going down the qualifications pathway quite rigorously is that at the moment our industry, for driving in particular, is what they call ANZCO level 3, and that is an unskilled occupation. The only way we can become a skilled occupation is with some qualification pathway, otherwise we’ll never be taken seriously.” Divers said if they could get people onto a course and give them a qualification at the end of it, they would have something to go back to the government with. “We can say, ‘actually, we are a skilled occupation and these are our benchmark qualifications that underpin that’. Otherwise, we’re looking at short-term fixes and some degree of immigration at some point. It’s not the be-all and end-all and it’s not the long-term fix, but certainly in the short term, we may well need to leverage immigration, but we can’t do that unless we’re an occupation that’s recognised as skilled.” The International Labour Organisation categorises job skill levels and Divers said worldwide truck and bus driving was classified as an unskilled occupation. “It’s difficult to fight the case we are a skilled occupation when we don’t have any recognised qualifications. Believe it or not, the number one qualification for truck drivers, if you had to pin it on one qualification, is that about 1.5% of all our drivers also hold their trade certificates in automotive. That’s the irony of it all, that we have a number of people who are trained to be mechanics who now drive trucks.” Divers recently went along to address the Limited Service Volunteers at Burnham Military Camp. “It’s a great programme, and I went along with Peter Stewart from Fonterra Darfield, and he talked about his career pathway. We need to say to people, particularly those who might want to come into our industry, that there’s not one single way you can come into it. We all come into it a slightly different way. We have some who go to college and get qualifications and end up truck drivers, but the vast majority do the licensing off their own bat, at their own cost. And that’s the fault of the system that we created. The fact is we need a lot more sponsorship to get people into the industry.” Divers said when they asked students at two Wellington colleges what they wanted to do when they left school, most of them said they weren’t sure. “But the feedback was they all wanted a job, they all wanted to earn money, and they wanted a job that was secure, which was interesting. We said, ‘what about training? Would you pay for training yourself?’ They said if the boss provided it for free, they’d accept it, but they were unlikely to pay for it themselves.” A scenario was proposed where two people were hired and one was given free training and the other one wasn’t. “We asked what they would do about that, would they challenge the boss, and they said no. The feedback was they didn’t want any conflict; they would probably just leave. That tells us a lot about our industry, that we’ve got to approach them as opposed to them approaching us, because they are unlikely to ask.” New Zealand Trucking

Divers said unless students had gone through sports or had motivated parents, generally they won’t have a work ethic. “You learn that from your employers and people you work with, it rubs off on you. That’s one of the benefits of the Limited Service Volunteer courses at the military camp – it’s full immersion into the military way of life. When we went and talked to the latest intake, they all sat up and they all had respect for the teacher, they had respect for themselves, and every single one of them wanted to be employed by the day they left the military camp, and that’s really key. So employers might have to bite the bullet and get them in early, and don’t use the excuse that because of health and safety you can’t get them in.” Divers pointed out that legally a 12-year-old could drive a tractor engaged in agricultural operations on a farm, as long as they had been inducted onto that piece of equipment. “So if we can get a 12-year-old in a tractor on a farm, we sure as hell can get a 15-year-old in a passenger seat of a log truck. We seem to be too scared to approach it, and unless we do, we will miss out to other industries.” If a programme could be developed and presented to schools, Divers said it could help capture the 70% of students who don’t go off to university. “If we can make it a free resource, we’re going to be one step ahead of everyone else. If we can get those resources into the schools, say, ‘here you go, for all those who aren’t going to go off to university, for those who aren’t quite sure what they’re going to do yet, do these credits’. If they’re not going to be on an academic pathway, get them on to this, and then we can get them into our businesses for one or two days a week. They might be a thorn in your side at school; they could be an absolute asset in our business.” All the level 3 Certificate in Commercial Road Transport courses at the five tertiary institutes are eligible for Fees Free. “This is a first, and we can leverage that. Because that’s always been a big problem, who pays for training, and most operators will turn around and say, ‘I won’t train because they might leave and go somewhere else’. If we take that argument away, then the opportunity is always, ‘yes, somebody might leave, is that a sign of your culture or do they genuinely want to see if the grass is greener?’ And the other thing is, if the grass isn’t greener on the other side of the fence, they may well come back to you so long as you leave the door open. And then you have a choice of whether you reemploy them or not.” Divers said they were looking to develop a charter and get the industry to commit to it. “Some of the things we’ll be looking at include what is a good employer, what do we need in a cadetship, which are those good companies we want to work with and support, what are they prepared to do, and then, if you want to be part of this programme, then you’ve got to commit to being a good employer and committing to a charter as an association member. This is about selling the benefits of membership. It doesn’t matter which one you belong to, as long as you’re a member of one, and the benefit is we will support you with your cadetship and training, and if anything, we will try and feed young people to you.” Divers cited Tranzliquid as a good example of a company

doing something about the driver shortage. “If you looked at the median age of their drivers, it wouldn’t be in the high 50s and 60s, it would actually be in the 30s and 40s. Because they saw this coming a long time ago, and addressed this issue themselves for their economic and business benefit, which is fantastic. They’re also very supportive and are members of various groups that we’re involved with in and around Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty, namely the Freight Logistics Action Group. They are great inputters into these organisations.” Older drivers and those who have retired were an untapped resource, said Divers. “When we look at the stereotypical truck driver, in his midfifties, slightly portly, slightly grey, we’re trying our very best to dispel that. Yeah, those guys are there, they’re the really experienced ones that you will be working with, your mentors. They are fathers and grandfathers and mothers and grandmothers, and there is this huge ability to train in-house. How do we incentivise that? If you have got somebody who’s looking to retire in the next year, why don’t you then utilise them one or two days a week, training new people coming in.” Divers admitted there was still a lot of work to do and there won’t be a quick solution to the driver shortage problem. “We do have a utopia that we want to see, and this is still a year or two years down the line. A lot of things we haven’t done enough of for many years, so it takes twice the amount of effort to get things back up and running again with those key people who can continue it. We can’t afford to lose any more programmes, and we all know that recruitment is of paramount importance in our industry.” Immigration New Zealand was approached regarding the absence of truck driving from the skills shortage lists. INZ area manager Marcelle Foley said the Essential Skills in Demand Lists were designed to ensure New Zealand’s skill needs were met by facilitating the entry of appropriately skilled migrants to fill skill shortages. “The lists are reviewed and updated on a regular basis. The removal and addition of occupations for the skill shortage lists is the result of extensive consultation with industry groups, other stakeholders and relevant government agencies alongside analysis of economic, labour market and immigration data. Changes to the lists demonstrate that the Ministry’s policy is flexible and responsive to the changing face of the country’s labour market. “The trucking industry (through the Road Freight Transport Group) and the Government’s Sector Workforce Engagement Programme (SWEP) have been working in partnership for the past few years to support the industry to access reliable, appropriately skilled staff from the pool of New Zealand jobseekers before jobs are offered to migrants.” Foley said this work included the development of a strategy to get 1000 more drivers into the industry by addressing some of the challenges the industry faced. “It should be stressed that removal of occupations from the lists does not mean employers cannot recruit migrants, but they must first show they have genuinely searched for suitably qualified and trained New Zealand workers.” 

So if we can get a 12-year-old in a tractor on a farm, we sure as hell can get a 15-year-old in a passenger seat of a log truck.

he cooler months tend to be the time where exercise ceases, calorie intake increases, and the couch becomes our best friend. We need to do ourselves a favour and take some steps to ensure this doesn’t happen to us this winter! Where motivation lapses, setting a goal is a great place to start. Whether it be entering a 5km run, joining a 12-week exercise programme, or climbing a mountain, this may be be just what we need to get off the couch and stay active. Getting a friend or partner to join you helps keep you honest, with an element of competition and accountability. Not to mention making exercise less of a chore with the added social aspect! Here’s some inspiration: Set yourself a personal challenge to learn something new like swimming 1km if you have never been much of a swimmer. Plan a trip to see the countryside in the form of a multipleday hike or bike tour. Sign your mates up and train together. Enter a local fun event such as a walk, run or bike and let your friends and family know what you have signed up for. 

Understanding the

Operator Rating System

T

he Operator Rating System (ORS) is a system that aims to provide a fair and accurate indication of the safety of an operator’s fleet and the operator’s compliance with land transport safety legislation. The rationale for the ORS is that it will let operators know how well they’re complying with the legislation and that it will help the police to target regulatory activities that require the most attention. The Land Transport Rule Operator Safety Rating 2008 sets out the key aspects of the ORS and how the system should work. The ORS is designed to penalise non-compliant operators who undermine regulatory and safety performance when they are making decisions about maximising loads and minimising maintenance costs. The logic is that those who operate within the law should not be disadvantaged by having to compete with operators who do not comply. Some of the anticipated benefits of ORS include: • A reduction in heavy vehicle crashes and associated social costs due to the improved compliance that will result from targeted enforcement; and • Fairer and more effective enforcement throughout the transport industry, which will lead to a level playing field for the industry.

high-performing operators to ensure that their standards stay high, but they are likely to receive less attention. The ORS will provide a benchmark for operators to see whether they need to improve their performance or increase their safety or maintenance. Operators can publicise their ratings once they have been finalised and use it in marketing as a promotional tool. Currently the NZTA does not publish ORS ratings but companies and government agencies that contract transport services may require operators to have a certain ORS rating before they can tender for contracts. The ratings may also be of interest to the Accident Compensation Corporation when it comes to setting their levies. The NZTA will collect information from safety related events over a 24-month period, and every six months they will notify an operator of their proposed rating and how it has been calculated. If you believe an error or omission has been made then you can apply to have it reassessed. An error or omission can include an event in a vehicle that, at the time of the event, was not being operated under your transport service licence, or a missing event that you think should have been included. If after applying to the NZTA to get an error corrected you are still unhappy with the outcome, you can apply to the ORS Review Panel which is made up of one representative each from the NZTA, the transport industry and the legal profession. The review panel will consider the operator’s submission and make a decision on whether the rating should stand or be recalculated. There is a fee required to apply to have your matter heard by the review panel and you must apply within 20 working days of receiving notification of your revised proposed rating. Next month I want to discuss some ways that operators and drivers can improve their transport service so that they can achieve a five-star rating. I’ll also cover the different kinds of faults and offences that will be included in the rating system and how to distinguish which ones will have the biggest impact on the rating issued. 

The incentive for operators to aim for a high rating is that the rating information will be used to target those who need the most assistance, and they will be scrutinised more closely.

The ratings are similar to hotel or restaurant ratings, with stars being allocated from 1 to 5 based on an operator’s level of compliance. 1 = Extremely Unsatisfactory 2 = Very Unsatisfactory, 3 = Unsatisfactory, 4 = Good, 5 = Very Good. The ratings are based on the number of safety events recorded. These include the number and severity of faults found during a certificate of fitness, the number and severity of faults found during roadside inspections, and the seriousness of any offences in which the operator’s vehicles are involved. When a crash occurs and a driver is found guilty or pleads guilty to an offence then this will be included in the rating to reflect their liability for the crash. Next month I will concentrate more on what kinds of faults and offences will have an impact on the rating issued. Calculation of the ratings is done using an algorithm. This means that there is a series of mathematical steps that produce a final score. I shall not attempt a more detailed explanation because my mathematical knowledge is limited and it’s usually the sort of stuff that makes most people’s eyes glaze over!

Please note that this article is not a substitute for legal advice and if you have a particular matter which needs

The incentive for operators to aim for a high rating is that the rating information will be used to target those who need the most assistance, and they will be scrutinised more closely. The NZ Transport Agency (‘the NZTA’) will still check

Promoting your business

P

romotion is the voice of your business. It is how you reach out to potential customers and let them know about the benefits of using your business and its services. There are many ways you can promote your business to customers, whether by word of mouth, television, radio, billboard, magazines, or through flyers. In recent years there has also been a huge upswing in online promotion through various platforms such as websites, blogs, social media and online adverts. With so many options available, how can you effectively promote your business to customers? Below are different approaches you can take which don’t cost a fortune. Develop an attractive website: Look at other trucking operators and businesses for ideas. Make your website easy to navigate and use. List all the services you provide, along with all your relevant contact information. Include feedback statements from existing customers, as this can be a powerful marketing tool. Go with an easy to use website that enables you to make changes without having to spend a fortune on website developers. Sites like www.websitebuilder.com provide free website templates that enable you to design your own website. Most businesses use the internet nowadays to search for trucking operators rather than traditional methods such as the Yellow Pages, so you need to have a good online presence. See if you can get suppliers or customers to put links to your website on theirs to help drive more business your way. Make use of free online business directories: Register your business with the online Yellow and White Pages directories, as some people still use these to find businesses. In recent times Google Business has become an invaluable service to register for. By registering your business details with Google Business, any time someone searches Google for your business (or the service you provide) your business name, phone number and a link to your website and directions to your business on Google Maps will appear at the top of the results. Utilise social media. Nowadays most people have a social media account. While you may think that platforms such as Facebook are purely for people to connect with their friends and family, they are also an opportunity for you to promote your business. They offer opportunities to network, connect with your customers, promote your brand and services, and increase customer engagement. LinkedIn is another social media platform you might want to consider utilising. By setting up a company page you may be able to form business connections or professional relationships that would otherwise not be possible. Utilise paid advertising on sites such as Google and Facebook: One of the main advantages of online advertising over traditional advertising is that it is extremely easy to

measure how effective it is, as the services provide you with measures on user response and interaction with your adverts. You can also target your adverts to your specific audience by having them only target people in your location, searching for specific keywords, and other criteria. It can be surprisingly cost-effective and budget friendly too, as you can set daily limits on expenditure. The information it provides can also be valuable for figuring out how to take advantage of other more traditional forms of advertising as well. Network with others in your industry: Meeting with others who work in or with your industry is an essential part of doing business. Conferences and industry events offer a chance to meet with many people in a short time. You will be able to mingle and interact with likeminded individuals, and maybe also have the opportunity to meet with some of the bigger, more established names in your industry. It is an excellent opportunity to make professional connections, establish relationships and even identify new business opportunities. As well as the networking opportunities, there are also many great marketing opportunities. Through marketing your business, you may be able to meet mentors, donors or financers who may be interested in your business, or you personally. They can then help you develop your business and take your business further. Create an email marketing strategy: For many of us, email is one of the main communication tools we use when dealing with clients or business partners. It is also a great promotional tool. Unlike many other marketing tools that may be very broad reaching, email ads can be targeted directly to your core audience. Most of us check our email inbox daily – and we enjoy receiving promotional deals from businesses we do business with. You could send emails in the form of a newsletter, information or update, advise a seasonal promotion or a giveaway. A great way to do email marketing is to use the online platform Mail Chimp. Mail Chimp is a free to use marketing automation tool. It can be used to send emails to a list of subscribers on a schedule, and provides you with many tools that make marketing easier. 

One of the main advantages of online advertising over traditional advertising is that it is extremely easy to measure how effective it is, as the services provide you with measures on user response and interaction with your adverts.

Frustration at delays

A

s congestion gets worse in most of our major urban areas, frustration grows throughout the industry. This is now more commonly exacerbated by the practice of some who distribute or receive freight of keeping carriers waiting for longer than acceptable times, or shortening their inward or outward goods area opening times to virtually unachievable windows. It would seem, based on feedback I receive, that many who rely on the road transport industry to service their needs believe the trucks that pull up into their yard or back door are there for their convenience, and can be dealt with when it suits. This is often brought about by these companies underinvesting in their freight handling requirements – be it equipment or staff. The result is the transfer of costs to the carrier and therefore driver frustration. Imagine the frustration of the owner-operator who called me to say he had sat in the queue of a large retailer with freight acceptance windows of 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 2.30pm. Before 10am was reserved for loading out their own trucks, however these also take priority during the window period. In this case our member arrived at 10.45am after traffic delays and sat in a queue of four trucks. He made it to the front of the queue around 11.40am as one of the retailer’s own trucks returned and went to the front of the queue. At 11.55am he backed into the dock to be told that the staff were going on their lunch break and would be back at 1pm. As he required the goods to be signed for he had no option but to wait for his unload at 1pm – a job that took less than 10 minutes. This example is one of straight underinvestment in staff on the part of the retailer. An extra staff member or two would result in savings of the driver’s wages and equipment costs. Failure to have two extra staff on duty at a cost of around $50 an hour could cost the operator in the example, and others,

up to five times this amount in standing charges. Imagine the cumulative cost with 20 or 30 trucks waiting. We can all name places where there are queues due to the facility being under-resourced but what is an acceptable amount of time to wait? To my mind, where a load is straightforward it is not unreasonable to expect a 30-minute turnaround and less if it is a part load. In fact, when I first entered this industry our quotes and tenders used to stipulate that they allowed one hour for load and unload and quoted an hourly rate for any time taken in excess. When did this change? When did transport operators roll over and allow shippers and receivers to take advantage of their goodwill? Was it because we had operators so desperate for work they were prepared to forego their rightful truck hire payment, so desperate that they were prepared to chop the legs out from beneath those carriers who continued to seek their rightful payment for delays? I for one would like to think our industry is more honourable than this but I fear I would be disappointed. It may be that those causing your delays are not your customers directly, and you may struggle to influence them to make changes. Your client, however, is likely their client also, and they will have influence. Influence they will use if it starts to cost them in the form of truck hire for standing time. Don’t complain about delays if you are prepared to accept them at your cost. Of course others will take advantage of your giving of time and money so generously. If you choose this approach though, I would ask if you are comfortable that you are positioned to meet the growing expectations of the industry in performance standards, driver training, and recruitment. In other words, will you meet your costs of doing business with trucks sitting idle, for free? Are you here for the long haul? 

Let’s get this driver shortage solved

I

n my article last month I explained some of the work we are currently doing to address the driver shortage – the key issue members said they faced in the survey we undertook last year. I outlined that we are involved developing a multi-party approach via SWEP (The Sector Workforce Engagement Programme). I am pleased to say that we have developed an exciting business plan about to be presented to your regional executive committees, and to the wider membership. There is no silver bullet to solve this issue; clearly we have to work on a number of fronts and with a number of initiatives and programmes either currently in existence or being developed. The new part is work we will be doing this year on establishing the industry’s part in all of this. As I’ve said, the key action is to establish an industry based cadetship and apprenticeship scheme, with industry making this happen. Your involvement and commitment to making places available to prospective employees is critical to ensuring the success of this initiative. It may involve you being able to take new staff and train them, or entering into a cluster of likeminded operators who can share this responsibility. It would be helpful to have driving opportunities from class 2 to 5 so they can move through the process of the graduated driver licensing system and achieve a class 5 licence on the job. The underlying success in this will be our ability as an

industry to change our culture and present a more attractive proposition for future employees. The pressure is on here, as most of those sectors that we compete with for staff have also taken initiatives and we are seeing a major shift in the way that business in general is treating staff, looking at more flexible ways to provide opportunities for their needs in respect to the core work as well as the wider aspects of employment. If you pick up any newspaper, or go online, you will see that this change is happening rapidly, particularly in the construction and farming industries, sectors we directly compete with for potential staff. As part of the overall business plan we need to have a conversation about this with you, and look at how we move from being good employers to great employers. In next month’s edition I hope to have a story on this that will hopefully sow some seeds so you can see what the employment future looks like and how we need to adapt. Again, if you want to be actively involved, please contact us. We are also happy to get feedback that will add to our knowledge and be helpful for our membership, and all associations. 

Don’t take your cybersecurity for granted

A

lmost every 21st century business has become totally reliant on the integrity and functionality of its IT systems, so much so that we now take that for granted. Trucking companies are no different. IT systems are fundamental to the daily operation of a modern transport business and without them the wheels would literally stop turning. Unfortunately, the convenience, speed and ease of use of modern-day IT systems also carries significant risks. Hacking, data theft, and online piracy are occurrences that due to their increasing frequency have become part of our everyday lexicon, even if we don’t really know what they mean. There also exists another threat that is just as pernicious, and in many ways is far more disruptive to an organisation, and that is ‘ransomware’. You may think it is strange that I am dedicating a column to a subject that, let’s be honest, I know very little about and is not really of obvious concern to our industry, but there is a reason for it. A few weeks ago the Road Transport Forum suffered an extremely serious ransomware attack. This attack completely knocked out our entire computer system – files, emails, everything. It took several days to resolve and cost quite a sum of money. Unfortunately, and somewhat against my better judgement, it also involved the fairly grubby business of actually paying the crooks off with the ransom. They say, never negotiate with terrorists; however in this instance we were left with little choice. Ransomware is a type of malicious software that denies a user access to their files or computer system unless they pay a ransom. It prevents you from using your computer by placing an encryption over the files and then the attacker ransoms the de-encryption codes back to you. The ransom, as in RTF’s case, is often not overly expensive, which encourages you to pay it. It is specifically designed to cost a lot less than it would be to completely rebuild your computer system, which is what you would have to do if you refuse to pay. I have been told that there are around four ransomware attacks per minute worldwide and small organisations are often considered convenient targets because they do not have the high levels of protection that can be afforded by large businesses. According to CERT NZ (Computer Emergency Response Team), which was set up by the government in 2016, there is a certain amount of risk in paying the ransom also, as it doesn’t mean that the de-encryption codes will work or you will get your data back. It is fairly common for the attacker to simply take your money and leave your files encrypted. Ransom is typically demanded in Bitcoin, which is pretty much untraceable, so to pay the ransom you do have to have a Bitcoin account or go through somebody who does. You also

have to be comfortable with the fact that you are aiding and abetting this criminal activity. CERT NZ identifies two main types of ransomware. Crypto-ransomware, which is what RTF was attacked by, encrypts files and does not allow access to them until you pay the ransom and get the password to unlock the encryption from the attacker. Lockscreen ransomware, on the other hand, works by locking your computer or your files. A message will appear telling you that you need to pay a ransom before you are allowed access. You won’t be able to remove the message or access your desktop or any of your files. Ransomware can get into your computer in the same way that malware or a virus does, through visiting unsafe or suspicious websites, opening emails or files from someone you don’t know, or clicking on malicious links in social media, like dodgy Facebook posts. In RTF’s case we believe it came in through a remote access portal used to externally administer our system. To best protect your organisation CERT NZ advise always updating your operating system and ensure you back up your files regularly. Install antivirus and anti-ransomware software on your system if you don’t already have it and keep it up to date. Install a firewall to stop traffic from untrustworthy sources getting into your computer, and finally, refrain from enabling macros in Microsoft Office. Having been through the trauma and disruption of our own situation I encourage all organisations to follow these recommendations and make sure you have the best possible protections in place to prevent such an attack. For transport companies, operating vehicle fleets, managing payroll, invoices and all the other administrative and accounting functions are now done electronically, and it is no exaggeration to say that a ransomware attack could be devastating. Familiarise yourself with the advice provided online by reputable organisations like CERT NZ and Netsafe, make sure you have good backup systems, don’t open suspicious-looking emails or websites, and invest in the best possible security software. These measures, while certainly not guaranteeing that you won’t be targeted, will at least provide your organisation with the best possible chance of coming out the other end with your system intact. 

WWW.GOCLEAR.CO.NZ RUNNING ON SCR?... MEMBERS’ REVIEW Roadmaster Trailers Ltd NZTTMF member since 1991

Now among the largest of New Zealand trailer builders, Roadmaster Ltd has been in operation since 1991. They attribute their longevity, their success and their growth to continuous liaison with their clients and to establishing a clear understanding of each client’s needs. Crucial to that is a commitment by all Roadmaster staff to “be the best, build the best”. By having that culture and by working closely with the client, Roadmaster builds and maintains successful relationships. The company’s manufacturing operation is in Rotorua and includes cutting and fabrication, trailer assembly, truck body assembly, painting, finishing, and final quality assurance checks. Hightensile fabrication is a rapidly growing part of the business and Roadmaster is adept at getting the best out of this often challenging process. The range of trailers is equally extensive: curtainsiders, solidsides and flatdecks among them. As well as the new builds, Roadmaster has for sale an extensive – and diverse – range of pre-owned trailers, accessible on the company’s website. Roadmaster is constantly evolving to deliver transport solutions. They continue to add new products to the current range and continually adapt and design trailers to meet specialised applications.

In addition to its Rotorua manufacturing plant, Roadmaster also has a sales and service base in Auckland and sales agents across the lower half of the North Island and throughout the South Island for nationwide service delivery. The company states that its aim is simple: deliver on the promise. It does so with a tenacity and focus that is truly typified by its (red) bull logo, possibly one of the most famous and visible of all New Zealand trailer logos.

Disgraceful!

T

he constantly increasing road toll is a national disgrace; it cannot be described any other way. As usual the ‘experts’, often self-proclaimed, come out of the woodwork expounding their theories about why this is happening and what can be done to fix it. Bring in a more rigorous licence testing regime say some; we did this in 2013 and the road toll has gone up almost every year since then. Decrease the open road speed say others; useless unless there is effective enforcement and it won’t stop people speeding, just bring in more revenue for the consolidated fund. Some say everybody should have to re-sit their licence; why? Everybody who has got a licence knows how to drive otherwise they would not have got the licence in the first place, and where would all the additional testing officers come from and who would pay to train them? And whatever happened to the much-lauded government’s Safer Journeys strategy 2010 – 2020? Wasn’t this supposed to result in much less road related trauma? Based on the theory that the probability of getting caught is a more effective deterrent than penalties such as fines and licence cancellation, I have some suggestions. Let’s set up an

Make the person in charge of this organisation accountable and base their pay on performance; the greater the number of severe injuries and deaths, the less money they get. organisation dedicated to road safety, drivers and vehicles, perhaps call it something like the Land Transport Safety Authority. The name fits safety and land transport. Make the person in charge of this organisation accountable and base their pay on performance; the greater the number of severe injuries and deaths, the less money they get. Within the organisation establish a team of people to do licence testing; take this away from the private sphere who most likely only see testing as business venture anyway. Establish another team to deter dangerous and unsafe behaviour on the roads, perhaps call them traffic cops. Put them in distinctive coloured vehicles, perhaps painted black and white with a big red cherry on the roof. Most importantly get them out on the road as a visible deterrent without the potential to be reassigned to other non-road safety related work. Establish another team of people to be responsible for vehicles and vehicle safety and draw these people from those who have had practical experience of operating vehicles in the real world. Of course, this will never happen and I should stop dreaming. There are just too many people employed in government organisations, such as ACC, MoT, NZTA, MBIE and the police, who would feel threatened by even the slightest hint that something like this could happen. One thing we can all say about the species bureaucrat is that when the species – or even one of the sub-species – is threatened, they all band together to protect themselves. I doubt we will ever see ‘bureaucrat’ on the list of the world’s endangered species. So, I guess we will have to acknowledge – we must never accept – that road related trauma will continue to rise while the experts continue to pontificate, theorise, have meetings, develop PowerPoint presentations and have more meetings. Perhaps some may even get an overseas trip thrown in as well to look at what other jurisdictions have done. After all, if they look hard enough I am sure they will find some country that can be used as an example to support their theories. All this will take place in an environment that must continue to preserve the species as a high priority, while getting paid the sort of money many of us can only dream about.

WWW.GOCLEAR.CO.NZ RUNNING ON SCR?...

Russ, Tania, Glenn and Cris.

JAK’S TRUCKS LTD ir a f f a y il m a f a ’s it –

Riverhead remains a quiet ex-forestry town on Auckland’s northwest fringes and not the obvious place to locate a used truck dealership, but Jak’s Trucks is not a run-of-the-mill truck dealer. For the past three years Jak’s Trucks has been located at Timber Place, Riverhead, which owner Glenn Allingham bought from his former boss, whom he drove trucks for.

G

lenn’s move into truck sales from driving them wasn’t seamless however. “I called lots of people about getting a truck sales job and nobody was interested, but I got a call one day from Tony Galbraith asking if I could help sell some of his trucks.” That was more than 20 years ago and Glenn and Tony do business to this day. The Jak’s team now comprises Glenn, dad Russ (whose main career was with Telecom NZ), and wife Tania, who manages admin and accountancy. Russ explains, “I took early retirement from Telecom in 1992 and

16

Truck Trader, May 2018

also had a concrete pumping business which I sold, so Glenn and I decided to team up.” The neon truck brand signs in the sales office demonstrate something of the passion that Jak’s has for trucks, and which is hardwired in Tania’s DNA, “My dad sold trucks and my brother runs a cartage business,” she explains. The team is made complete with Cris Edwards (usually referred to as ‘Zoom’) as fulltime mechanic, compliance manager and anything to do with a spanner. The location is not your typical ‘drive-by’ says Tania, but

since occupying Timber Place, more people come in saying that they drove past or even that they came along with the kids just to look at the trucks. Jak’s Trucks work hard to attract repeat business – the industry is too small not to, says Glenn. “Even through the recession when we took a hit like everyone, we had to keep our loyal customers coming back. Margins were smaller, and it was tough but we kept rolling.” After more than 20 years in business Jak’s Trucks key to that success is knowing their product and what is right (or wrong) for the customer. “Customers ask for our help to ensure they’re getting right tool for the job,” says Glenn. “We will tell customers if we don’t think a truck is right for their application and will try and source something or recommend someone if we can’t help.” Another area that Jak’s Trucks works hard in is marketing. “It’s not like a main car dealership where you’ll see a car, stop and have a look. We use Trade Me, we can’t afford not to be there, but we know that transport is still very responsive to print and imagery and I feel that print advertising is going to be around for a while yet in this industry. We have customers who fax and use handwritten invoices.” A large portion of Jak’s’ business is down the line, explains Glenn. “We get lots of rural business and 50% comes from the South Island.” Jak’s makes the distance work in their favour. “We want to do the best we can for long-distance customers because people nowadays don’t have time to make special trips to Auckland to look at trucks, so often we will do a deal where we have the truck sitting for them in Lyttelton, making certain that it is as we have described it. “Everything can look great in a photo” says Glenn, “so you need to give customers an honest description and appraisal, so they say it doesn’t look ‘as good’, they say ‘it’s better’. You can’t afford not to because they won’t ring you back again.” Does Glenn envisage a move to a ‘mainstream’ truck sales location like Manukau or Wiri? “No,” says Glenn quickly. “We live seven minutes from the yard, Russ is 10 minutes away and Zoom is 12 minutes away, so while there’s no interest in being located down there, we do work with quite a lot of the franchise dealerships there.” Jak’s Trucks is off the track well-trodden, but it enjoys a terrific reputation built up over a 20-plus year time span, and you get the impression that it’s as much about lifestyle and having the ability to work with something – and people – that you love. A family affair, in other words.
