Industry Partners


Founded in 1985, the Australian Livestock and Rural Transporters Association (ALRTA) is the peak body representing road transport businesses servicing the agricultural supply chain.  ALRTA is a federation of six state associations including:

Livestock, Bulk and Rural Carriers Association of New South Wales

Livestock and Rural Transporters Association of Victoria

Livestock and Rural Transporters Association of South Australia

Livestock and Rural Transporters Association of Western Australia

Livestock and Rural Transporters Association of Queensland

Livestock Transporters Association of Tasmania

ALRTA’s primary aim is to work with governments, industry, community and media to ensure that rural road transport is a safe, responsible and productive part of regional economies and communities.  Individual transport businesses become members of state associations, and in turn, each state association is a member of the ALRTA. This structure allows our family of associations to deal with issues at the local, state and national levels.

The Road Transport Industry is one of the most heavily regulated industries in Australia. Highway Advocates is a legal practice with expertise in heavy vehicle offences. They have ex-drivers on staff who are personally aware of the challenges you face on the road. 

Highway Advocates can assist with your legal problems from reviews of fines through to defended hearings and appeals and are available to call 24/7.

Highway Advocates keep costs to a minimum

Highway Advocates usually charge a fixed fee or an hourly rate which is a fraction of the rate commonly charged by other law firms.  They offer instalment plans and discounted rates to members of our affiliated associations – and this includes LBRCA members.

And Highway Advocates always challenge prosecution costs where appropriate – as they don’t believe truck drivers and operators should have to pay for their own prosecutions.

The LBRCA has partnered with Highway Advocates to offer members legal advice in times of need.
