Kalari Encourages Nominations For Prestigious Industry Awards

Entries for the Australian Freight Industry Awards 2017 close in under a month and specialist bulk logistics provider, Kalari, is encouraging the transport industry to submit their nominations. Kalari won the award for Best Practice Safety in the 2016 Australian Freight Industry Awards (AFIA).

Peter O’Shannessey, Managing Director of Kalari, has emphasised the importance of leading by example with their successful zero harm goal, a strategy that eliminated hazards and recognised fatigue as a contributing factor for work-related incidents.

“Our customers understand and appreciate that an Australian Freight Industry Award is not easily achieved. The award served as objective evidence of Kalari’s commitment to continuous improvement and relentless pursuit of best practice in safety.”

Victorian Transport Association (VTA) CEO, Peter Anderson, said Kalari set a terrific example for other operators to follow.

“Safety is the most important thing for any operator to get right, and it’s important that the many safety success stories happening right throughout the industry are acknowledged, which is where the AFIAs make a real difference.

“We invite all members of our industry to share their success stories by nominating for an AFIA. It is more important than ever for us as an industry to create awareness in the general community of the many positive contributions we make.”

To learn more about AFIA 2017, contact the VTA on 03 9646 8500 or email The winners and finalists will be announced at a presentation celebration in Melbourne on September 2. Entries close August 14.
