Truck That Australia


Welcome to Truck That Australia.

Truck That Australia is a monthly programme dedicated to selected newsworthy items within the Australian road transport industry. Whiteline Television is proud to team up with legendary industry advocate Rod Hannifey who presents the monthly programme from various locations throughout Australia.

Rod Hannifey has spent most of his truck driving career as a road safety evangelist and advocate for safety within the Australian road transport industry. He is an accomplished and respected columnist and has been an adviser to Industry and government on many projects. He also pilots the distinctive Truckright Industry Vehicle which is a K200 Kenworth in B’Double configuration owned by Rod Pilon Transport of Dubbo in central western NSW.

The aim of the programme is to inform drivers and operators of issues pertaining to the industry, advocate for change in attitudes and push for a common sense approach to road and industry safety for all. Some of the recent stories Rod has been advocating for was the caravan and sharing parking bays video which was widely received and welcomed by industry.

We will periodically have special guests on the programme to explain trends in road safety management and legislation applicable to our ever changing industry and sometimes even ‘just for fun’.  Our goal is to release the programme during the first week of each month.

If you have any events you would like us to cover then please don’t hesitate to contact us.  It also pays to note that all of us here at Whiteline Television hold down a normal job as drivers and Rod also drives full time so some events will be impossible for us to get to but we will do our very best.

If you have any stories that you consider newsworthy please feel free to send us an email at Truck That and give us the details of your story and maybe Rod will have a look at it for you.
