At last a realistic affordable Income Protection for Australia’sTruck owner drivers

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Russell Snibson on the right track solving Income Protection for Australia's Truck Owner Drivers

It is no secret that the Transport Industry in Australia has not been blessed with a wide range of acceptable, cost-effective choices when it comes to insurances.

Most Australian truckies have been made aware of the horrific consequences of a disability from an accident or sickness preventing an owner driver from keeping the wheels turning. Families can be financially exposed and banks can dictate terms over debt while fire-sales ruin existing business and personal equity.

We all know that income protection is a must-have cover for your trucking business, because it generates a personal income stream to maintain family income. It also creates cash flow in the business to employ a sub-contractor to keep the truck wheels turning. The owner driver benefits, and the business stays healthy when the driver isn’t.

Workcover, if available, has let owner drivers down at times, where cover for sickness 24/7, or accidents outside work hours are not covered. Even if the event of a work accident, common accounting practices lowering taxable income for the truck driver can really hurt a Workcover claim.

At last an Insurer has properly understood the Truck and Transport Industry, and has come to the party with a clear market leader product that is thinly distributed and not widely known in the trucking industry.

Consider:

  • Weekly claim payment based on gross turnover, not taxable income. This allows a higher benefit.
  • No premium loadings for DG, interstate, or manual load.
  • No premium loadings for smokers.
  • No waiting period for 25 conditions. (eg broken wrist).
  • Day 3 cover for a hospital stay.
  • Level Premiums that do not increase every year with age.
  • Affordable realistic premiums.
  • Packaged tax deductible Life Insurance options.

Truck Insurance Quotes

Friday, December 16th, 2011


Owner operators in the Australian trucking industry play a significant role in the ongoing development of the Australian trucking industry.


The support mechanisms needed to be a successful truck owner driver need to keep up with modern day trends to keep a trucking business in Australia viable. Transport costs need to be controlled on a daily basis and long term profitable contracts are paramount in gaining the edge on the competition.
Truck Insurance Australia contributes in it’s own way by supporting the Australian “truckie” with truck and transport insurance designed to meet the differing needs of each owner operator truck driver and these needs can radically change on a yearly basis.
With that in mind, understanding the needs of the owner driver, Truck Insurance Australia understands that truck owner operators are different and one type of truck insurance policy does not meet all requirements.
Your truck insurance needs to be updated on a yearly basis by getting updated truck insurance online quotes before your current truck insurance policy expires.

Truck transport growth in Australia

Monday, November 14th, 2011

Hino... helping Australia's truck transport grow

The Australian Truck Transport Industry is growing at a healthy rate, according to a recent published survey by the Australian Trucking Association, Truck Week 21/27 Feb 2010 showing Australian people are heavily reliant upon road transport freight.


The trucking industry carries ¾ of Australia’s domestic freight and the future looks bright with a predicted doubling of road freight up to 2030 with a 3.8% annual growth rate from 2011-2016.

The majority of road transport freight is moved intrastate with an expected high growth rate on the shorter interstate corridors like Sydney-Melbourne and Sydney-Brisbane.
Truck Transport segments:
1)      Short distance road freight… 55.8%
2)      Long distance intrastate… 22.8%
3)      Long distance interstate…21.4%
It all looks good for the truck transport road freight in Australia.

Lung buster legislation

Dull durrie legislation (Pic: ABC News)

Australia looks set to bring in plain packaging for tobacco products from next year after the legislation passed the House of Representatives last night.
The legislation requires cigarettes to be sold in dark green packets with graphic health warnings and without trademarks from July 1 next year.


Both bills to implement the plan have now gone through the Lower House, despite the Coalition’s concerns about the potential for intellectual property infringements. The legislation will now go to the Senate for approval.

Ms Roxon told Parliament the Opposition was “shamed into backing the bill, but really opposed it with every fibre of their body”.

Editors Comment: I do not understand how this will make truckies in Australia who smoke, give up the habit. If a truckie smokes and enjoys it and can afford to buy cigarettes, is obviously capable of making the decision to quit and not be forced into it via stupid cigarette packaging. Democracy gone mad? It makes me ponder what the government will do next. Who makes the most money from the sale of a packet of cigarettes? It’s not the manufacturer, the wholesaler or the retailer.
I’ll have a pack of 25’s… you know…the dark green ones… the ones without the trademarks…. their the better cigarettes!

ATA Chief Executive gets a feel for the road

ATA Chief Executive Stuart St Clair taking a break at a parking bay in Catherine

ATA Chief Executive Stuart St Clair returned to Canberra last week with a fresh appreciation of the road conditions facing truck drivers along the Warrego, Landsbrough, Barkly and Stuart highways, through Queensland and the Territory.

Stuart drove an ABB quad (semi-trailer with a dolly and a B triple) carrying a commercial load from Mitchell to Darwin with Bill Manton, the national training manager at Simon National Carriers.

Stuart said he wanted to be able to give politicians and public servants a firsthand report about the state of the route, and said the Queensland Government should be commended for the road works underway.

Early morning at a rest area during Stuart's journey in Western Queensland

“The road from Toowoomba to Roma was appalling, but work is being done which is to be applauded,” he said.

“In Western Queensland, as a result of the flooding, the surfaces were uneven and broken. There were extensive road works going on which caused big delays, but you don’t mind because you can see the roads being repaired.”

“The Queensland Government has a big job upgrading such a major transport route.”


Stuart said the on road performance of the ABB quad was exceptional and confirmed the ATA’s argument that modern multi roll coupled combination vehicles provided safer outcomes on our shared roads.

“The on-road performance of our 53 metre vehicle was amazing, with outstanding tracking and stability,” said Stuart.

Stuart met with drivers and operators on the way, before sitting down with the Northern Territory Road Transport Association and trucking operators in Darwin to discuss the NHVR, fatigue and the proposed carbon tax.

Stuart returned to Brisbane via the same route but at the wheel of a standard Triple Road Train and was then able to have firsthand experience of the different handling and tracking of a conventional Type 2 Road Train.
