The appointment of the new President of the Queensland Trucking Association has been welcomed by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulatory Authority (NHVR).
Experienced carriers and general managers of universal transportation were promoted by industry groups at the annual meeting held last week.
He will replace Julie Russell, who will retire and was elected president in 2017.
NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said Kahlert’s appointment will continue the strong leadership that the QTA Board has provided to heavy-duty vehicle operators.
“Paul represents QTA as Vice President and continues to lead the board of directors, who are enthusiastic supporters of heavy-duty vehicle operators throughout Queensland,” Petrosit said in a statement.
“We look forward to working with Paul and QTA on many important reforms, policy agendas and research projects over the next few years,” he said.
“We would also like to thank President Julie Russell for his contributions and contributions to the Queensland heavy-duty vehicle industry at the time.
“As a member of the NHVR board, Julie will continue to play a key role in the safety and productivity of heavy vehicles.”
