THE AUS­TRALIAN TRUCK­ING AS­SO­CI­A­TION

(ATA) TRUCK­SAFE board has wel­comed two new di­rec­tors.

In­dus­try ex­pert Peter El­liot and Hold­ing Redlich’s na­tional trans­port team part­ner, Nathan Ce­cil, were ap­pointed to the board last week.

ATA says El­liot and Ce­cil will work with Truck­Safe mem­bers to “un­der­score safe and re­spon­si­ble op­er­a­tions ... and help de­liver the Truck­Safe safety ac­cred­i­ta­tion pro­gram”.

Ce­cil, a lead­ing ex­pert in the trans­port sec­tor, spe­cialises in ship­ping, lo­gis­tics, road trans­port and trade law, and has par­tic­u­lar ex­per­tise in heavy ve­hi­cle reg­u­la­tion and chain of re­spon­si­bil­ity laws.

He was named one of Aus­tralia’s best lawyers in trans­porta­tion, trade and in­ter­na­tional ar­bi­tra­tion in the 2016 AFR Best Lawyers in Aus­tralia guide.

El­liot has been part of the truck­ing in­dus­try for more than 40 years and has worked across nu­mer­ous op­er­a­tions and in­dus­try sec­tors.

For the past decade, he has spe­cialised in com­pli­ance, both as an op­er­a­tor be­ing au­dited, and as a man­ager of com­pli­ance schemes.

He is the cur­rent safety pro­gram man­ager for the Aus­tralian Lo­gis­tics Coun­cil (ALC) where he over­sees the Na­tional Lo­gis­tics Safety Code and Re­tail Lo­gis­tics Safety Code.

Truck­Safe chair Ferdie Kroon wel­comed Ce­cil and El­liot to the board.

“Nathan and Peter have a proven track record in this area and will bring a set of strong in­dus­try fo­cused skills to the board, as well as fresh views and per­spec­tives to strengthen our team,” Kroon says.

“Their skills and ex­per­tise in this area will be a valu­able ad­di­tion to the Truck­Safe Board, and we are look­ing for­ward to work­ing with them.”
