Light Rigids Doing the Heavy Lifting


Light rigid trucks are doing more of the heavy lifting as online shopping and home deliveries become the norm.

The world of transport and the way in which we shop evolved heavily during the COVID-19 pandemic. Online shopping has become the new normal, leading to Australian parcel delivery numbers skyrocketing to 1.1 billion in 2021.

More deliveries ultimately result in additional light rigid trucks on roads to fulfil customer demands. With 9.4 million Australian households shopping online in 2022, light duty rigid trucks are now relied upon to manoeuvre our residential streets, complete smaller delivery runs and ensure a speedy delivery – tasks larger trucks would have difficulty achieving.

Did you know there are over 187,000 light-duty rigid trucks on Australian roads? Incredibly, that's one light-duty rigid truck for every 135 Australians and counting.
