National Heavy Vehicle Regulator - Freight PASS Webinar (Multiple dates)

Starts:  Nov 27, 2023 11:00 (ET)
Ends:  Dec 13, 2023 12:00 (ET)

The NHVR is excited to have recently launched Freight PASS - a new, interactive to help industry make more informed safety, productivity and sustainability decisions about the benefits of heavy vehicle combinations on the road network.

The platform allows the user to input scenario data including the type of vehicle, trip length, average speed and commodity to estimate time, crash rate, fuel consumption, carbon emissions, and estimate costs or savings from longer or shorter routes.

For example, the tool shows that a 30m PBS A-double will complete a nominated freight task more safely, in half the time, with almost half the fuel consumption and carbon emissions than a 19m conventional semi-trailer.

This is the first of a suite of productivity related tools that will be released for consultation in the coming months.

The project team is hosting a number of webinars which will provide an overview of:

  • why and how Freight PASS was developed
  • detail on the selection of source material
  • the consultation process and next steps.

The webinars also contain a Q&A component with the project team.
