Fourth Heavy Vehicle Charges Determination

01 January 2008

If endorsed by ATC Ministers, the NTC heavy vehicle charges proposal will impose a new and substantially altered schedule of charges on the trucking industry, to be phased in over three years from 1 July 2008.

Registration charge increases, coupled with an increase in the road user charge, will impose heavy costs on the trucking industry and these costs will have to be passed on to Australia’s dispersed communities and trade competing industries. The ATA and its members do not support the recommended charges put forward by the NTC.
