Grey Melbourne wins project work from Transport Certification Australia
16 November, 2010
— Grey Melbourne was awarded a project by Transport Certification Australia Limited (TCA) after a competitive agency pitch. This win will see Grey Melbourne’s strengths come to play in areas of brand strategy, corporate identity, stakeholder consultation and positioning.
TCA was established by its members, the road transport authorities of the State, Territory and Commonwealth governments. In recognition of the ever-growing transport challenges facing Australia, TCA was tasked with developing a unique new platform capable of accommodating telematics and Intelligent Transport System (ITS) applications.
The Intelligent Access Program (IAP) was the first telematics product launched by TCA. The IAP is a voluntary program which provides heavy vehicles with access, or improved access, to the Australian road network in return for monitoring of compliance with specific access conditions by vehicle telematics solutions.
Successes under the program include major efficiency, productivity and safety and environmental gains through reduced fuel consumption, increased tonnage, better protection of vulnerable road assets and improved means of demonstrating compliance with chain of responsibility legislation.
Chris Koniditsiotis, CEO of TCA says, ‘TCA administers delivery of the Intelligent Access Program (IAP), the telematics/ITS platform upon which it sits was always intended to be future driven and able to accommodate new uses for both industry and government, without the need to start afresh with each new product or service offered”.
He adds ‘‘We selected Grey Melbourne after a competitive pitch and were impressed with their depth of experience across the transport and government sectors. Grey Melbourne’s ideas resonated well with TCA’s core values and we look forward to working with them”.
TCA have to date commenced working with Grey Melbourne on ways to help optimise the value that our brand can deliver to our many important stakeholders such as transport and logistics businesses, road authorities and safety agencies.
Luke Waldren, Managing Partner of Grey Melbourne says ‘Our biggest strengths for this pitch lies in our total communications approach, smart thinking and commitment to stakeholder consultation. We understand TCA’s vision and our ideas are very much in line with the company’s overall direction. We look forward to helping TCA define and develop their market position and to build a successful partnership, moving forward’.
Work is already underway and the campaign will roll out in late 2010/early 2011 following a detailed stakeholder consultation process.
