Our country is built on freight and logistics but many of us don’t have an understanding of just how important this industry is, and what the impact is on our economy at a national and local level.
Nick Leggett represents road freight operators nationally as the Chief Executive of the New Zealand Road Transport Forum.
More than 90% of New Zealand’s freight is transported by trucks, moving around the country all day, every day. While the number of trucks on our roads is predicted to remain steady in years to come, the volume of freight is set to increase dramatically, with a predicted growth of 58%. This growth brings even more pressure on our roads.
Join us on Thursday 29 August to hear Nick’s thoughts on our roading infrastructure and how we can use it to unlock the potential of our community.
