The need for the Transport Industry has never been so vital & so obvious. It is crucial that Governments continue to classify the industry as an essential service.


The Motor Traders Association of Australia (MTAA)  have released a fact sheet and position statement that is important.


This includes


‘essential service means a service (whether provided by a public or private undertaking) without which the safety, health or welfare of the community or a section of the community would be endangered or seriously prejudiced’


MTAA regards the sale, service, repair, and supply of parts for heavy, commercial, light vehicles including motorcycles and farm and industrial machinery is essential if other essential services are to operate efficiently effectively and as required during a time of disaster, crisis, or event where essential services are described and proclaimed by the Commonwealth, State or Territory Governments.
