The GTTLS will be held at the Victoria Lifesaving HQ on the beach in Port Melbourne and will have a number of influential speakers including Mike Dozier, Managing Director Paccar Australia and Richard Giromini, Wabash National’s President and CEO, as well as SAF Holland CEO Detlef Borrghardt. Plus others yet to be announced.


The event will mark the first keynote speech appearance for Mike Dozier since he arrived in Australia from the US and took over the role of Managing Director in 2013. According to ARTSA Chairman, Peter Hart, the program has been finalised and a number of important presenters will be announced in the run up to the Summit.


“It is a true honour for us to be the first to listen to Mike Dozier’s valuable insights into the Australian marketplace,” said Hart. “He will speak alongside a world-class line-up of presenters from Australia, Asia, Europe and North America, who will bring a unique international flavour to the conference.”


The speakers can be expected to provide a wide perspective and food for thought for the Australian trucking industry. Manufacturers supplying trucking around the world will be able discuss the issues for both themselves and their customers during the Summit. The first day will end with a Leaders Networking Dinner at the National Gallery of Victoria. Full details of the event are available at the GTTLS website.


“The line-up is so dynamic our audience will be hanging on every word,” said Hart. “It will be the premium networking opportunity of the year with national and international business leaders participating. It’s the perfect mix of global content and local insight. I believe the unique mixture of fleet owners, Australian and international executives has all the potential to set a new standard in the international business world.”
