Ms JENNY AITCHISON (Maitland)—Whether it's hauling harvesting equipment, transporting livestock, carting grain or moving refrigerated fresh produce, trucking is essential to the agricultural industry.

Today I congratulate Regina and Scott Harvey, and their daughter Blair, whose family business SRH Milk Haulage has won a national award for safety and innovation. A quarter of a century ago the Harveys started their business with one milk tanker. Today they have 63 trucks and 100 tankers, and they operate in NSW, Western Australia and Victoria. The business moves three million litres of milk a day.

The Harveys want every one of their drivers to come home from work safely, and to do the right thing for employees and customers alike. They have introduced new vehicles with special seats that help detect fatigue, and this was significant in the business receiving the TruckSafe John Kelly Memorial Award in the Australian Trucking Association's 2020 National Trucking Awards.

Congratulations Scott and Regina for leading SRH Milk Haulage through a quarter of a century of business, including drought, flood and now pandemic, to win this most prestigious transport award.
