In Australia, the Transport and Logistics industry generates an estimated $96.65 billion in revenue, has over 48,000 registered businesses, and employs nearly half a million people annually. Changes to the local Chain of Responsibility (CoR) laws will mean businesses must comply with a new Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) bringing about a change to the industry.

Speaking at CeMAT AUSTRALIA in July, Steven Asnicar, Director, Chain of Responsibility Australia, will explain and expand on the changes coming to Transport and Logistics legislation and Chain of Responsibility (CoR) laws in Australia, and how they will impact warehouses in the future.

Asnicar will share his insights into how crucial it is for warehouses to understand the legal liability and criminal prosecutional aspects of CoR, in his session titled; The changes that will affect every business in Australia: NHVL - Chain of Responsibility law changes in 2018.

"The changes to the CoR means businesses who consign, pack, load or receive goods could be held liable to breaches of the HVNL, even if they have no direct role in driving or operating a heavy vehicle. In a push to see a widespread work health and safety rise in the transport and logistics industry, these laws will drive the future of warehousing.

"The CoR review process will aim to contribute to the development of a positive organisational culture in warehouses, where each component understands their purpose; reduce the likelihood of costly 'surprises' and improve efficiency, performance and resource allocation when subject to continual improvement. "The law recognises that multiple parties may be responsible for offences committed by the drivers and operators of heavy vehicles. A person may be a party in the supply chain in more than one way.

"The law will impact both the small and big players in the Transport and Logistics industry, it's about developing sustainable operating practices in warehousing. Through the updated CoR laws, warehouses will be provided with an effective risk management system for the future," said Asnicar.

The program will gather Australia's leading experts to discuss Innovation and Industry 4.0; The Future of Intralogistics, Materials Handling and Supply Chain.

CeMAT AUSTRALIA will showcase practical solutions to challenges facing the warehousing industry and explore trends to drive an intelligent and profitable supply chain including robotics, mobility, IoT, increased cloud deployments, driverless vehicles and augmented reality.

Leading service providers and technology shaping the future of warehousing will join the trade show in July, including CartonCloud developers of automated cloud transport management and warehouse systems, Adaptalift will promote their multi-directional forklifts, adapting to awkward lifts which fit into narrow aisles, and Cowin Global will display advanced logistics trolleys and handling equipment.

CeMAT AUSTRALIA will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, 24 - 26 July 2018.
