27 July 2017

Transport Certification Australia (TCA) is proud to sponsor the Application of Technology Award (Shaun Owen Memorial) at the 28th Australian Freight Industry Awards (AFIA).

The awards are being hosted by the Victorian Transport Association (VTA) on 2 September 2017, and recognise outstanding achievements and excellence in the Australian freight industry, across six award categories.

TCA Chief Executive Officer, Chris Koniditsiotis said, “We are proud to be sponsoring the Application of Technology Award for the seventh consecutive year.”

The Application of Technology Award recognises an individual, group or organisation that has applied innovative technology systems to their business to enhance productivity or solve a problem.

VTA Chief Executive Officer, Peter Anderson said, “Technology plays a pivotal role in freight and logistics from a safety and productivity perspective, so it’s important we acknowledge that by recognising individuals or companies that are using technology to their advantage.”

“The VTA is grateful for TCA’s continued support of this important award, along with its broader efforts to help the freight industry adjust to new technology in a regulatory setting,” said Mr Anderson.

Mr Koniditsiotis said, “The freight industry continues to be at the forefront of technology adoption.”

“The Application of Technology Award provides a way to publicly recognise the efforts made by individuals, groups or organisations to deliver improved outcomes through the use of technology.”

“The Award commemorates the indelible mark Shaun Owen’s passion and commitment has left on the industry and recognises these qualities in the recipient.”

“Nominations for the Application of Technology Award are always closely contested, highlighting how the Australian freight industry continues to innovate through the use of technology to deliver improved transport safety and productivity,” Mr Koniditsiotis said.

Nominations for the awards are open until Monday 14 August 2017. For further information about the AFIA visit www.vta.com.au.
