Welcome to the latest issues of HarvestTECH.News.
This month we highlight a number of stories of companies working to and being recognised for their efforts in improving wood harvesting and log transport. Post harvesting, we’ve included an article of a new project on New Zealand’s East Coast, where permanent forest ‘barriers’ are being planted around waterways and on steep and unstable terrain. eLandNZ managing director Sheldon Drummond said it was a “game-changer” for New Zealand’s forestry industry.
We’re also excited to see that Mercedes-Benz is launching its first New Zealand and Australian on-road truck tests with active driver-assist technology. This is another technological step forward that should see trucking become both safer and more efficient. And for fleet operators, a new web service has just been set up to enable those considering switching to electric vans and trucks to forecast their operating costs of running commercial EVs.
Check out these stories and much more below. Enjoy this month’s issue.
Remember, please send through any stories or video you want us to pass onto the wider wood harvesting and log transport community.
