The I2I resources are found on the Attracting students to the transport and logistics industry page of the ‘Employment and Jobs site’ of the Queensland Government website. The resources are free for businesses to use when forming an industry-school partnership and attracting youth into the industry. https://www.qld.gov.au/jobs/employers/attracting/transport-logistics.html
The TLI Connect team are proud to reach this milestone in collaboration with the Transport and Logistics Workforce Advisory Committee (TLWAC) and I2I pilot group members who have helped shape the resources and engagement model for businesses to educate students/schools that transport and logistics is a career option.
The success of the I2I pilot program in June 2015 within the Logan area has shaped the release engaging with over 800 students through tailored engagement activities such as Career Expo, Ute Day and year presentations. It is a credit to the pilot group’s commitment to see this program become a key engagement tool for businesses to engage with youth.
Please feel free to use and share the I2I resources within your business, networks and associations. The TLI Connect team will start its release promotion with industry and secondary schools across the state, so you will see more information in the coming months.

More than 350 staff, owner drivers and guests of All Purpose Transport spent the day celebrating the official opening of their new Logistics Centre at 132-166 Gilmore Road, Berrinba Queensland with a ribbon cutting ceremony and family fun day.
Addressing the large crowd, General Manager for All Purpose Transport Paul Kahlert said that new premises mean little if you don’t have a great team.
“These new premises address our core value that we’ve had in place at APT for decades. We know that the Best People = Best Business. This is another step forward to enable our people to come to work to first class premises and to establish APT firmly as an Industry Employer of Choice,” Mr Kahlert said.
“Todays’ celebration is about our new building opening, but it is more about the great people who have worked for APT to make this possible.”
He acknowledged the founders and owners of All Purpose Transport, Trevor and Pam White. “Without Trevor and Pam starting this company back in 1975, none of this would be possible. Their 40-plus year commitment is on show here today and we are now standing on the foundations of the business for the next 40 years.”
“APT is a privately owned Queensland road freight company servicing south east and regional Queensland with depots at Berrinba, Loganlea and the Sunshine Coast. As we grow, this building supports our position to deliver an exceptional service to our clients across Queensland.
Today represents the opening of Stage 1 of the building development which will soon see another 2 stages added. This footprint will total close to 18,000m2 of warehousing space along with 1000m2 of first class office space.”
Opening the Centre, Logan Mayor Pam Parker was in attendance to thank All Purpose Transport for bringing jobs to the Logan region. Cutting the ribbon, she said that Logan would be stronger for having All Purpose Transport and both their new and planned facilitates operating from their region with strong family values at their core.
Founder and Owner, Trevor White said “that today was a celebration for the family, our employees and subcontractors for the wonderful work you do, the service you provide to our customers and the enthusiasm you display each and every day.” He acknowledged the assistance of many who have played a pivotal role in the construction of this impressive and state of the art Logistics Centre.
“Since our beginning in 1975, founded on family values, through to the opening of this new building today, we have operated on sound principles and hired the best people we could find. We were always confident that the company would continue to prosper past my retirement in 2001 and it has thanks to all of our people who make a difference every day, led by General Manager Paul Kahlert.”

Changes to the Heavy National Law and Regulations from 6 February
From tomorrow, Saturday 6 February 2016, the latest amendments to the Heavy Vehicle National Law and Regulations will take effect. While many of the changes are administrative only and will not impact on your day-to-day operations, key changes include:
- Alignment of vehicle standards for new and in-service vehicles
- new penalties that are consistent across all HVNL jurisdictions
- formal recognition of electronic work diaries, paving the way for their rollout in 2017
Changes relating to electronic work diaries will have no immediate impact. The adoption of electronic work diaries is voluntary and is currently planned for 2017.
Visit our website for more information and a vehicle standards guide outlining the changes.
Electronic work diaries – a voluntary alternative
An Electronic Work Diary (EWD) is an electronic device or system to monitor and record a driver’s work and rest times. In 2017, EWDs will be introduced as a voluntary alternative to written work diaries.
EWDs will improve compliance and boost safety for all road users through:
improved data accuracy and transparency to drivers, transport operators and authorised officers
provision of real-time data which enables transport operators to respond immediately to actual breaches and monitor performance over time
in-vehicle driver information which enables drivers to plan their work and rest and take action when alerted to an imminent or actual breach.
- improved data accuracy and transparency to drivers, transport operators and authorised officers
- provision of real-time data which enables transport operators to respond immediately to actual breaches and monitor performance over time
- in-vehicle driver information which enables drivers to plan their work and rest and take action when alerted to an imminent or actual breach.
Ultimately, EWDs are expected to contribute to a reduction in heavy vehicle crashes, due to better management of driver fatigue and compliance with fatigue rules.
Visit our website for more information.
