Chris Koniditsiotis to present at VTA state conference

Transport Certification Australia (TCA) has announced that CEO Chris Koniditsiotis will be presenting at the 2013 Victorian Transport Association (VTA) State Conference.

“In recognising the theme of this year’s conference – ‘Building a Better Business’ – TCA will highlight how VTA members can best utilise technology to deliver a combination of regulatory and business outcomes,” Koniditsiotis said.

“The transport sector has always led the way in the early adoption of technology. The challenge is how to leverage synergies between your business needs, and the regulatory expectations of governments – both now and into the future. At the conference, I’ll explain why Governments have agreed to establish the ‘TCA National Telematics Framework’, and the benefits it presents to transport operators.”

Recent announcements by the New South Wales and Victorian Governments highlight the growing use of the Intelligent Access Program (IAP) as a way to drive productivity gains for the industry, while managing community expectations.

Koniditsiotis also welcomed the recent announcement by the Victorian Government on the expanded access being made available to Higher Productivity Freight Vehicles (HPFVs) through the IAP. “The IAP will play an integral role in the Cubic Freight Network in Victoria and we look forward to working with our stakeholders to ensure its success,” he said.

“I will also highlight how transport operators can better manage their Chain of Responsibility (CoR) obligations by taking advantage of Intelligent Speed Management (ISM), which specifies the technical and operating requirements necessary to obtain accurate speed measurements from GPS-based telematics systems.”

The Conference will be held over two days on 27-28 May.
