Course Overview

If you are a business that employs the services of owner drivers to deliver your goods across the country, then this course is for you.

With different legislation applicable in different states, it can become a minefield when negotiating contracts of carriage. As regulation tightens, it's important for businesses to understand the environment in which they are required to operate within.

This area of specialisation requires expert knowledge. Arguably the leading practitioner in Australia, Nigel Ward has negotiated 'owner driver' arrangements across Australia for the past 30 years.

From fleet mix strategy, cost and rate modelling, contract drafting and negotiations as well as appearing in the NSW IR Commission and before the Victorian Small Business Commissioner, Nigel has an unrivalled understanding of and experience in goodwill and sale of vehicles with work claims and issues.

As a member of the Arbitration Panel of the Contract of Carriage Tribunal of NSW, you will gain from Nigel’s in-depth knowledge, experience and exposure to the world of owner driver arrangements.

Join your peers for a full day training program and upskill for your future negotiations.
