Australian consumers rely heavily on road freight with the trucking industry carrying 75% of Australia’s domestic freight. The last motor vehicle census in Australia was 2011 and showed that there were 523,727 trucks registered nationally. The 2006 and 2011 (5) year period showed an annual growth rate of 2.7%. While most are truck fleets, a major market exists in the owner driver category.
While the majority of the road freight in Australia is moved intrastate, this market segment is steadily growing. The major interstate corridors like Sydney to Brisbane and Sydney to Melbourne is expected to show best growth rates on these such like shorter haul distances.
