Turf Transport Mass Management Project



The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) awarded Turf NSW with a Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative funded project to develop safety guidelines that cover the restraint of the turf products including packaging and mass and load distribution of turf products on various heavy vehicles.

Turf NSW has been working with Engistics to:

                 (a) Develop Certified Restraint System for Turf products

                 (b) Develop a Mass Management System for Turf products

Training programs will be available in mid 2023.
