TRAILER POW­ER­HOUSE Max­iTrans saw sweep­ing suc­cess at the Bris­bane Truck Show this year, from Freighter’s dom­i­nant awards per­for­mance to a range of new prod­ucts un­veiled across the Group’s six equip­ment brands.

The theme for Max­iTrans was ef­fi­ciency, staffing its enor­mous stand with a num­ber of PBS spe­cial­ists to pro­vide ad­vice to prospec­tive buy­ers and in­quis­i­tive pro­duc­tiv­ity-hun­gry op­er­a­tors at­tend­ing the show.

Ma­jor re­leases from Max­iTrans in­cluded the nextgen­er­a­tion Maxi- Cube van and Peki truck body mod­els. A range of re­cently launched prod­ucts were show­cased, such as the Freighter T- Liner Mark II, Freighter Drop Deck Semi, Hamelex-White PBS Dog Tip­per with ‘ Land­slide’, and a Lusty EMS Drop Deck Semi Tip­per.

A pop­u­lar at­trac­tion was the enor­mous Azmeb High Vol­ume Side Tip­per, which in essence looks like two tip­pers on top of each other, oc­cu­py­ing the back of the Max­iTrans stand.

Freighter cleaned up at the Bris­bane Truck Show Awards, tak­ing out four pres­ti­gious ti­tles and prov­ing dom­i­nant within the trailer space.

The awards, as seen be­low,

are proof of Freighter’s in­no­va­tion in the load re­straint game: • Best Com­po­nent, Equip­ment

or Ser­vice In­no­va­tion – Freighter Hang­ing Load Re­straint Gates

• Best Trailer – Freighter T- Liner Mark II with Hang­ing and Slid­ing Post Load Re­straint Gates • Best Aus­tralian De­signed and En­gi­neered Prod­uct – Freighter T- Liner Mark II • Best Aus­tralian Man­u­fac­tured In­no­va­tion – Freighter T- Liner® Mark II.

Max­iTrans man­ag­ing di­rec­tor and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Dean Jenk­ins at­trib­uted the awards to the hard-work­ing staff and a strong fo­cus on safety and pro­duc­tiv­ity.

“From the team who con­trib­uted to build­ing the show trail­ers, to the engi­neers, pur­chas­ing and op­er­a­tional staff work­ing in the back­ground, ev­ery­body has con­trib­uted in some way to win­ning th­ese awards and we should all be very proud,” Jenk­ins says. “The recog­ni­tion from the judges is tes­ta­ment to our in­no­va­tion pro­gram fo­cus­ing on in­creas­ing the op­er­a­tional safety and pro­duc­tiv­ity of our prod­ucts.”

Jenk­ins says he be­lieves that over the past three years, through a range of prod­uct in­no­va­tions, Max­iTrans has be­come the lead­ing man­u­fac­turer of safe, ef­fi­cient trail­ers across Aus­tralia and New Zealand.
