On Tuesday 1 February, New Zealand Trucking Media and Resilienz Ltd launched this year’s Trucking Toward a Better Future competition. The competition provides a forum for road transport industry people to share their thoughts on how the world can be made ‘better’ and more efficient, especially from a supply chain and general business process perspective.

While trucking and transport might be a driver’s natural frame of reference, there are no limits to what can be suggested. Have more than one idea? No problem, enter as many times as you like. Entry is free and open to any person or group actively engaged in the trucking sector.

“We want to tap into what we call the ‘truck-a-net’ – the vast pool of knowledge in truck cabs currently roaming New Zealand. Daily, you see more of the ‘economy at work’ than any other profession. You must have seen things done in one place better than another. You must have had thoughts and ideas about how the world can be better,” says New Zealand Trucking Media editorial director Dave McCoid.

“Climate change is the single biggest issue facing future generations. I know you listen to podcasts, read, think, and ponder. I know truckers and truck people are as invested in our children’s future as anyone else. We have the broadest potential view of the economy and no one’s asking what we see and think.

“This year we have group entries also. You can still enter individually, or you can form a group, or enter as a business even. Not everyone’s comfortable with the limelight solely on them so the group or team option helps with that. We’d hate to miss a great entry because someone was hesitant about that sort of thing.

“The prize money’s up this year too, and we’ve simplified it in terms of just first, second, and third, with some spot prizes also. Total prize pool is $7500, with first taking $5000.

“Everyone we’ve talked to is just so enthusiastic about letting the trucking industry have its voice on this.”
