TIV 2008 - 2010
I was asked to speak at the Goulburn Valley Road Safety Group Dinner as part of Transport Awareness Week and the TIV was on display as well.
9th and 10th October 2009 The TIV attended the Shepparton Agricultural Show and was on display along with the Australian Trucking Associations Sharing the Road display vehicle.
The TIV was entered in the Australian Freight Logistics Awards, Industry Promotion Category. It was a finalist again this year.
The TIV was featured on the 7PM Project during a live cross to the Rod Pilon Transport Depot in Melbourne in response to a Victorian suggestion to exclude trucks from using the fast lane. I offered a ride to those on the show and Carrie committed to do a trip.
The TIV was filmed for the New Inventors Program for the world first “road reading” capability of this working b-double. The show went to air on 29th July and the INS-COM software won the best invention on the night going on to the grand final.
14th to 17th May 2009 The TIV prime mover was on display on the Tramanco stand at the Brisbane Truck and Machinery Show.
21st to 24th April 2009 The TIV was on display at the front of the Gold Coast Convention Centre for the Australian Trucking Convention drawing much favourable comment and with many, many photos taken of the unit.
15th April 2009 The TIV was on display at the front of the Council Chambers for the Newell Highway Roundtable Meeting in Parkes. I met with the NSW Minister for Transport who committed to do a trip in the TIV and spoke to the meeting on drivers issues re the Newell Highway.
15th February 2009 TIV took part in the Melbourne Convoy for Kids.
7th February 2009 TIV was on display in Dubbo at the meeting of the National Road Freighters Association.

28th May 2008 The new trailers to complete the TIV and make it a visually attractive and also an educational unit were ordered by Rod Pilon at the Australian Trucking Association Convention in Canberra
25th to the 27th April 2008 The TRUCKRIGHT Industry Vehicle (TIV) was launched at the Dubbo Show and attended for the three days. It was on display as a b-double combination with the two Rod Pilon trailers opened up and partly loaded showing legal load restraint measures and had the RTA Inspection Vehicle at the next site, with two RTA officers in attendance to answer questions, which was also arranged by Rod Hannifey.
The TRUCKRIGHT Industry Vehicle has been featured in Owner Driver magazine in a stand alone story in December and in my column each month detailing riders and sponsors.
Trucking Life magazine did stories on Nelly McKenzie’s trip and also on Dr Brendon Nelsons trip and I did five radio interviews the day after his trip on ABC and network shows including Charles Wooly’s.
The TIV has been featured in my columns in Caravan World and Caravan and Motorhome magazines.
The TIV has been featured in articles in Prime Mover and Diesel magazines.
