Foundation sponsors

Professional Driver of the Year “Team of Champions”  reunion dinner 2014 hosted by the ATA Foundation Sponsors on Hamilton Island

Who are the ATA’s Foundation Sponsors

BP Australia, National Transport Insurance and Volvo Trucks signed on as the ATA’s Foundation Sponsors in 1991. Their initial support secured the future of the fledgling organisation, then known as the Road Transport Forum.

Since then they have combined to contribute many millions of dollars to the ATA’s advocacy, policy, communications, awards, events and community outreach programs.

The integrity of each of their brands, and their fundamental values, align with the mission of the ATA in our quest  for safety, professionalism and viability.

The ATA’s Foundation Sponsors continue to be vital contributors, notwithstanding the invaluable connection they each provide to large sectors of the trucking industry through their own customer networks.

The ATA congratulates and commends BP, NTI & Volvo for their tramneous loyal support, for 25 years in 2016, and still going strong.

BP is one of the world’s leading international oil and gas companies, providing its customers with fuel for transportation, energy for heat and light, retail services and petrochemicals products for everyday items.

The company has transformed: growing from a local oil company into a global energy group; employing over 80,000 people and operating in over 80 countries worldwide.
BP has taken action to develop and promote the use of cleaner fuels for transportation and has continued to explore ways to boost the supply of low-carbon energy.
Their solar business has been an active supporter of government programs such as the Solar Cities program, and it continues to seek policy measures which will support the development of the domestic solar market.

Volvo Trucks has been a proud part of Australia’s road transport industry since 1967 and has grown to become one of the largest heavy-duty truck suppliers in our country today.

Volvo has a long history with Australia and has been a strong supporter of the trucking industry, both here and overseas.
In fact, it’s been 80 years since the first Volvo truck was built back in 1928. Today, they are the world’s third largest producer of heavy trucks, creating reliable transport solutions for clients all over the world.
Volvo Trucks is a Foundation Sponsor of the Australian Trucking Association since 1991 and has been a great supporter of many of the industry’s initiatives, including the Volvo ATA Safety Truck travelling exhibition centre and the National Trucking Industry Awards.
