drama abounds

Where will the first commercial vehicles market year of the 2020s sit, given the decade previous? We will know for sure next month but there is a good chance it will be marvelled at as an exercise in resilience. Sales in the 11th calendar month are at 3,174 for a year-to-date (YTD) of 30,998, according to Truck Industry Council (TIC) T-Mark figures. The market has been tracking somewhere between the mid-decade doldrums of 2016 and the roots of the later spike in 2017. So, with 2016 at 2,956 and 29,903 and 2017 at 3,630 and 33,352, the trend towards being near-equidistant is all but set in stone. The month-on-month (MOM) figure tells a story, too. That is, the recovery continues, though the acceleration eased somewhat last month; the MOM totals from August onwards being…

kenworth connection

It’s very cool to be part of a build like this Chicken parmigiana! Yes you read that correctly, I’ve just started a story on one of Australia’s coolest Kenworths with the words ‘chicken parmigiana’. No doubt you’re wondering why? Well, I guess that’s a fair question. It would make a really cool story if I was to BS you and say it’s been done on a dare, however I’m sure my editor would have already rewritten the intro if that was the case. No, I’ve used those two words because I stumbled upon this standout truck while enjoying one of the best chicken parmigianas you could ever have! I know that’s a big call. Australians are pretty serious about many things, their footy, the Melbourne Cup, habitually losing to New Zealanders at…

bts gets heavy

hotel rooms are booking fast The last show to feature heavy equipment and machinery was also the last show at the RNA Brisbane Showgrounds – back in 2009. The show’s hand was forced by the redevelopment of the showgrounds, however the move to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre has been well rewarded. Exhibitors have been able to really step it up with the quality of their displays in one of the world’s great venues. The Brisbane Truck Show is the only event that takes over the whole centre, with fantastic displays filling all three floors. The proximity to South Bank and the CBD has opened up new opportunities for truck displays, networking, dining and entertainment. If there was one, the only downside was that there was nowhere for the big yellow construction gear. Well,…
