Transport Safety Network targets emerging technologies

The next transport safety meeting which will centre on leadership and emerging technologies in the industry is set down for 16 February.

Attended by more than 100 people, the recent meeting of the network chaired by the winner of Queensland’s Trucking Woman for 2021, Annastasia Denigan (Qube Logistics), focused on improving industry safety.

The Australian Logistics Councils discussed the results of audits conducted at 140 workplaces in the supply chain, while Professor Sebastien Glaser (CARRS-Q Queensland University of Technology) spoke about building capacity in vehicle automation for public roads in rural, regional, and remote Australia.

The February meeting will focus on:

  • the rollout of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) at Carlton United Brewery, which reduces labour costs, damage to structure and products, and has reduced safety incidents (pictured below)
  • hydrogen fuel in the transport industry, with a presentation on the transportation of hydrogen fuel and a look at the risks and opportunities to improve safety when decarbonising the economy.
