Major Log Transport Event – One Week Away


The speed of transition or adoption of new transport technologies by forestry, log haulage and wood logistics companies has been phenomenal. The rapid development of new fueling options, improved productivity, improved safety, improved efficiencies and the requirement to reduce emissions to de-carbonize heavy transport fleets have all been major drivers to the change and rapid adoption we’re now seeing.

The very latest technologies and results from log transport and other heavy fleet trials and early commercial operations are going to be showcased in Rotorua, New Zealand next week, on 22-23 May 2023. Key equipment and technology providers include; Daimler Truck, Scania, Hyundai Motors, ETrucks, Cummins, Hiringa Energy, TrackIT NZ and Ponsse will be presenting along with the very early adopters, forestry and log haulage companies and harvesting operators including; Fennell Forestry, HWRichardson, Shea Transport, Manulife, Rayonier Matariki Forests, Offroad Trucking Services, Pacific Haulage and Mike Hurring Logging.

The electric truck market is showing similar exponential growth. The global electric truck market size is anticipated to reach US$11.08 billion by 2032 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 31.3% between 2023 and 2032.
