What are the awards for?
The Brisbane Truck Show 2017 Awards were introduced to recognise the transport industry’s evolving capabilities. Along with industry newcomers, there will be many iconic brands like the Drake Group, who have been revolutionising transport year after year with superior products and services.
Which products can be nominated for awards?
To be nominated for any of the award categories, products needed to have been released on the market since the 2015 Brisbane Truck Show. But there is an allowance made for new features and enhancements to be added to the models after the earlier release date.
Categories recognised in the awards
This year, one of the newest awards that will generate a lot of excitement amongst the industry is the best Performance-Based Standards (PBS) innovation category, which is focused on the strategic initiatives that are implemented to achieve a higher level of productivity for specific tasks.
Other categories that are going to be judged in the show are new technology, equipment, component, body innovation and service innovation.
The most glamorous awards that will be handed out at the Brisbane Truck Show 2017 are the best Australian Manufactured Innovation along with the best Australian Designed and Engineered Product.
