Road Freight NSW began as ATA NSW in 2007. The organisation has developed to become a respected advocate for trucking operators, as a conduit to government, regulators and enforcement agencies.

In 2015 the new name, Road Freight NSW, articulates our independent and authoritative viewpoint thanks to our respected executive leadership and the passion and expertise of members contributing to the Policy Council.

Our focus this year covers issues including:
• productivity and safety gains,
• maintenance and compliance,
• speed management,
• access,
• workplace relations,
• driver health and well-being,
• training,
• load restraint,
• fatigue management

Road Freight NSW also addresses sector specific issues around the ports and over-size/over-mass access.

Members have access to the best workplace relations guidance available in Australia.

And, we focus on improving the culture within the road freight industry to realise a better public image for our members.



Road Freight NSW (RFNSW) complies with the Australian Privacy Principles under the Privacy Act 1988.

RFNSW collects personal and business information to advocate for its members, run events, and provide member services and information.

Availability of this policy

This policy is available for free from the RFNSW website, www.roadfreightnsw.com.au

How and why we collect personal information

RFNSW collects personal and business information to advocate for its members, run events, and provide member services and information.

The personal information we collect for advocacy purposes includes names, contact details and information that individuals provide about their business operations and views on policy issues.

The personal information we collect to run events and provide member services includes names, contact details and information that individuals provide about their business operations. It also includes credit card details.

RFNSW only collects personal information that is necessary for, or directly related to, our functions. We collect information from individuals with their consent. If we collect information about an individual from someone else, we will take reasonable steps to contact the individual.

We do not, however, consider that it is reasonable in the circumstances to notify individuals when we collect publicly available documents that include their personal information such as government reports or magazine articles.

RFNSW discloses personal information to service providers such as auditors, industrial relations partner, Ai Group, preferred fuel company and our partner organisations. RFNSW considers that this disclosure meets the requirements of APP 6.2(a)(ii).

Anonymity and pseudonymity

For advocacy purposes, RFNSW generally aggregates or anonymises personal information before it is used, or uses a pseudonym. Unless required by law, RFNSW will not provide material that identifies any specific individual or business without their explicit or implicit consent.

You have the option of subscribing anonymously to RFNSW publications or using a pseudonym. We do, however, need your real details if you wish to sign up for an RFNSW, or participate in the RFNSW board, council, policy committee or an RFNSW election.

Photography and video at RFNSW events

RFNSW engages photographers and video camera operators, at its discretion, to shoot images of RFNSW events for marketing and editorial purposes. With RFNSW’s permission, news organisations may also shoot news images of RFNSW events. By registering for an RFNSW event, you agree to the RFNSW using your image for marketing and editorial purposes, and to outside news organisations using your image as part of reporting the news, without the need for payment or further approval.

RFNSWpublications and direct marketing

RFNSW invites people to subscribe to its publications, media releases and events and awards updates. You will also receive updates if you register for a RFNSW event. You can unsubscribe from any of these publications at any time by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the foot of each email, or by sending an email to info@rfnsw.com.au

Cross border disclosure of personal information

RFNSW stores information about people registered for its events on servers operated by Cvent in the United States of America. RFNSW has reviewed Cvent’s security and acceptable use policies and is satisfied they meet the requirements of APP 8.1. In addition, RFNSW has obtained an independent audit showing that Cvent’s handling of cardholder information complies with PCI DSS 2.0.

RFNSW also conducts anonymous surveys using a web-based service located in the United States.

Integrity and security of personal information

RFNSW periodically checks the personal information we hold to make sure it is up to date; for example, by reviewing undeliverable letters and emails. We destroy personal information that we no longer require.

RFNSW stores its holdings of personal information on a secure computer system in Australia and cloud servers in Australia and the United States of America.

Sending information to us by email or through contact forms

You should be aware that unencrypted email messages and web site contact forms are not secure. You should never send confidential personal information such as your credit card numbers by email or through a web site contact form.

Access to and correction of your personal information

Under APP 12 and 13, you are entitled to access any personal information we hold about you. You can also ask us to correct that information if it is inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading. You can exercise this entitlement by getting in touch with the contact officer listed below.
