End of financial year has come and gone and you guessed it time to slug everyone some extra fees and charges. By everyone this includes our customers as well.
As of July 2017 our prices which we have tried so hard to maintain for the past 4 years will sadly have to rise due to unscrupulous toll road operators and new government and insurance charges plus ridiculous fuel price fluctuations. Let's touch on these a bit.
Australia has just been crowned the "most expensive toll roads per kilometre worldwide". As a heavy vehicle operator we can spend per day a total of between $120 and $180 using Toll Roads. Yet the Government want's trucks off the free road networks to ease congestion??????? Sadly we cant afford this anymore, so sorry guy's we will be using the free road networks from now on, and if there are any truckies out there as a protest i would insist you do the same.
New Government / Insurance CTP charges:
As usual big brother has slugged the transport industry more fees for registration so you guessed it, they will be passed on. sadly too many to mention here.
