National Delivery Consultative Forum is due to meet on the 10 November and will be attended by a representative from each state branch of the union. Amongst other things, the forum will discuss upcoming delivery equipment trials. Trials include changes made to the electric pushbikes such as, middle bar removed for easier use, front and rear lights, a rear vision mirror and replacing existing panniers with the larger motorcycle panniers to better manage small parcels. E-Trikes currently being trialled in Qld have been updated to include additional carrying capacity, lights and mirrors and new suspension and trial will be expanded.
Changes to the Honda NBC110 motorcycle such as, lowered seat, removing pillion handle directly behind seat which causes discomfort, updated front letter carrier and rear top box standard fitting of clutch cover heat shield testing ‘knobby’ tyres for unsealed surfaces.
The CWU will nominate PDOs to participate in the trials.
