      Busy much?

      May 2017

      Is history repeating itself? Almost exactly two years ago, with the Brisbane Truck Show about to commence and the end of the Financial Year on the horizon, I reflected on how the annual autumn frenzy might be holding back true progress instead of facilitating it.

      Reality check

      The Australian Logistics Council’s (ALC) 2017 Forum, held at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground last month, proved to be an important reality check for the freight and supply chain industry at large.

      The essence of innovation

      March 2017

      Let’s be honest, we all love to talk about innovation and how important it is to lead the commercial road transport community into the digital age. But I’ve said it before, and I will say it again – there is so much noise around innovation today, especially on a management level, that the word has almost lost all meaning.

      The 2017 mindset

      February 2017

      It’d be easy to jump on the bandwagon and chastise 2016 over a series of unforeseen political events – ranging from Brexit all the way through to the outcome of the US presidential election – or even the death of a beloved celebrity, and yet I believe it would be the wrong way to kick off 2017.

      In tune with progress

      December 2016

      I do appreciate good music and the astounding amount of work that goes into producing it, but I have to admit I never really believed in what is known as Difficult Second Album Syndrome. Nevermind was Nirvana’s second studio album, for example, and it still became the soundtrack of a whole generation.

      Think regional

      November 2016

      There is an inherent reciprocity between globalisation and regionalism present in our industry that many a multi-national corporation could learn from. After all, almost every OEM competing in Australia has to balance the need to cut costs and create economies of scale with an effort to ‘localise’ each and every vehicle to ensure the harsh Australian environment won’t damage it – or the brand behind it.

      Less talk, more action

      October 2016

      I don’t know what you think, but I believe that disruption is the most overused catchword in modern business. Just about any start-up is using the term in some capacity now, and even incumbent businesses increasingly feel disruptive at what they do – at least if you believe the marketing people behind it.

      Just when you think you’ve seen it all: The August edition of Prime Mover is the first ever magazine we’ve had to complete in a political vacuum.

      Blue blood

      July 2016

      I’ve just returned from the beautiful country of Sweden, where I was lucky enough to witness the world final of Volvo’s International Service Training Award (VISTA).
