Performance Based Standards ( PBS )

Haulmark was one of the first trailer manufacturers in Australia to embrace the PBS concept and having done so delivered our first PBS approved vehicle a 58’ tri axle steerable trailer  in 2007 , another  52’ non steerable trailer in 2008 and of course the A-Double in 2010.  Since that time we have developed a range of PBS vehicles and combinations that have provided significant productivity gains for the transport operator whilst at the same time has provided an enhanced level of safety .

PBS allows the manufacturer to develop trailers and combinations outside of the prescriptive standards approval system however the vehicles performance must meet a stringent set of performance guidelines in order to gain approval to operate.

Haulmark is very well positioned to innovate and develop new PBS vehicle concepts and gain approvals to suit the operational needs of the specific freight task.
