Timber24 has introduced its new fourth generation PBS timber vehicles – marking a first for the local industry.

The unique Australian simulation vehicles leverage cutting edge design and pioneering innovation to enable a 10 – 15% cost saving in the delivery cost to customers. By equipping PBS vehicles to carry higher payloads per trip, fewer trips are needed – thereby reducing road risk and exposure by up to 25%.

“It marks the first PBS combination of this design and brings with it new possibilities and ample benefits,” said Blake Ferguson, MD of Timber24.

The game changing innovations are improvements on the old PBS design  –  for example, adjusting the underslung hitch position; changing the A-frame design and shortening the trailer length. These modifications all focus on making the combination as short as possible, without sacrificing payload or safety.

“All of these changes equate to a significant annual saving,” said Blake. “This benefit would be shared by the customer and the haulier.”

In addition, with its more tractable design, the PBS vehicles can access tighter routes due to its improved tracking, with less swept width required. This allows for more flexibility on the routes it is allowed to travel on, with fewer limitations placed on it by the DOT due to its design and shorter length.

“Timber24 is pioneering new and more efficient ways of serving clients, and breaking the industry boundaries,” said Blake.
