Earlier this month TRT exhibited at the ITTES Melbourne Truck Show, NA Group from Sydney kindly loaned their new TRT Quad Axle Widening Low Loader for our display which included a TIDD Pick & Carry Crane and TractionAir CTIS.
Our team reported some of the big OE’s were missing this year and that, reflecting the Australian market, crowd numbers were notably down on all days from previous years. That said there were enquiries to follow up and good interest in our Trailer, TIDD Crane and TractionAir. Our recent news announcing the setup for TRT in Brisbane drew positive comments from customers, with the opportunity to build on our parts and service backup.
Thanks to Lawrie Williams who brought the NA Group Quad down from Sydney with the North QLD Truck and Machinery Movements Western Star (Phat Cat). This truck went on to win the ‘Best Western Star’ and ‘Truck of the Show’ awards; we reckon the trailer looks pretty sharp too.
We would also like to acknowledge the ‘The Tour of learning’. Looking sharp in their TRT sponsored shirts, these New Zealand Transport Industry Identities are mostly heavy haulage operators and owners who get together to attend these shows, to keep up to date with innovations and trends.
