TCA to create technology hub at MEGATRANS2018

Transport Certification Australia (TCA) has announced its support of MEGATRANS2018, the most ambitious transport, logistics and supply chain event ever staged in Australia.

As the nation’s governing body for the telematics community – providing assurance in the use of telematics and related intelligent technologies – TCA said it will host a unique ‘Telematics Hub’ on the exhibition floor of MEGATRANS2018.

With a focus on increasing productivity through intelligent multimodal transport solutions, the TCA Telematics Hub will showcase world-leading technology and demonstrate how Australia leads the way, the organisation explained.

Spread across a 30,000m2 footprint, MEGATRANS2018 will distinguish between four distinct functional areas, including Logistics and Materials Handling, Warehouse & Storage, Infrastructure; Road Transport and Air, Sea & Rail.

A technology showcase will straddle the entire exhibition floor to reinforce the importance of technological trends such as Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Intelligent Infrastructure and Intelligent Multimodal Transport Solutions.

TCA CEO, Chris Koniditsiotis (pictured), congratulated MEGATRANS2018 for highlighting the role of intelligent technologies, stating that the TCA “is proud to support MEGATRANS2018″.

“Through the development of new business models and markets, we can accelerate progress, promote innovation and best practice, and improve productivity outcomes,” said Koniditsiotis.

TCA will take an active involvement in driving intelligent multimodal technology solutions across the integrated exhibition and conference format of MEGATRANS2018.

The TCA announcement comes on the back of the Victorian Government and National Transport Commission (NTC) throwing support behind the event, on top of significant support from industry organisations including the Australian Logistics Council (ALC), the Victorian Transport Association (VTA), and the Australian Road Transport Suppliers’ Association (ARTSA).
