National Transport Insurance (NTI) has today been officially welcomed as an associate member of the Australian Trucking Association (ATA).
ATA Chair, Geoff Crouch, said NTI has close to 45 years of experience in the insurance industry and has been a long-time supporter of Australia’s trucking industry.
“Since 1991, NTI has been an ATA Foundation Sponsor and I’m pleased that today’s meeting of the ATA General Council has welcomed them as an associate member,” he said.
As an ATA associate member, NTI can participate in ATA internal committees including the Industry Technical Council and the ATA General Council.
“Throughout the years, NTI has been actively involved in ATA initiatives to improve industry safety, professionalism and viability,” said Crouch.
“One of the most exciting of these initiatives is our redesigned Safety Truck, to be launched later this year. This campaign will use state-of-the-art technology to educate young drivers and vulnerable road users about how they can share the road safely with trucks,” he said.
NTI is also a sponsor of the ATA’s National Trucking Industry Awards, recognising businesses and individuals who go above and beyond to improve their workplace and the trucking industry.
NTI General Manager – Commercial, Michael Edmonds, said that it is an honour for NTI to be welcomed as an associate member of the ATA.
“At NTI we are committed to the safety and sustainability of the Australian trucking industry,” he said. “Being accepted as an associate member of the ATA extends on our foundation sponsor position that we’ve proudly held for the past 30 years and assists in achieving our vision of a safer and more sustainable future.”
