Herald Sun - Motoring - - Big Wheels -

Ja­panese truck maker Hino has won the 2010 Aus­tralian Freight En­vi­ron­men­tal Award. The con­tin­u­ing devel­op­ment of hy­brid technology and its en­vi­ron­men­tal lead­er­ship were ap­plauded by the judges. The award takes into ac­count ini­tia­tives that re­duce the freight in­dus­try’s im­pact on the planet, fo­cus­ing on car­bon diox­ide re­duc­tion so­lu­tions, ef­fi­cient equip­ment and sys­tems that pro­mote the more ef­fi­cient driv­ing. It was one of six awards an­nounced at the an­nual event hosted by the Vic­to­rian Trans­port As­so­ci­a­tion at Mel­bourne’s Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.
