St Clair revisits China


Stuart St Clair, ATA chief executive

Stuart St Clair, chief executive of the Australian Trucking Association (ATA), has returned to China to give a second presentation about Australia’s innovative truck and trailer combinations at the 2012 TUC Logistics Summit held recently in Shanghai.

Stuart addressed an audience of 400 leading Chinese trucking operators on the use of high productivity vehicle combinations and effective lobbying practices. He also attended dinners with a range of Chinese operators and manufacturers while in the country.

This is St Clair’s second trip to China this year, following on from his highly successful presentation at the CIMC world forum in April. After the world forum, David Li, chief executive of CIMC Vehicles Group, invited Stuart to present again at the logistics summit due to the extremely high level of interest his initial presentation had generated.

According to Stuart, the Summit was an excellent opportunity to exchange information and experience between the Chinese and Australian trucking industries, and to build relationships between the two.

“I would like to thank Graham Trad, Hector Ojea and the team at CIMC Australia for sponsoring this trip, and David Li for inviting me to speak at the summit,” Stuart said.
