PBS A-double

Performance based standards


The Performance-Based Standards (PBS) Scheme provides the potential to achieve higher productivity and safety through innovative and optimised vehicle design.

PBS vehicles are designed to perform their tasks as productively, safely and sustainably as possible, and to operate on networks that are appropriate for their level of performance.

The team at GLT specialise in getting PBS combinations on the road, especially PBS 30-meter A-Doubles. There is a bit of a process to having new or current trailers approved and we will be there to guide you through each step of the way.

We work with accredited PBS assessors and certifiers to design and construct the ideal combination so you can carry as much product as possible via the most direct routes.

To see the range of pre-approved vehicles, please visit: nhvr.gov.au/files/201810-0923-pbs-vehicle-configurations.pdf

We will walk with you through the PBS process in detail, starting with a layout drawing (showing how best to achieve the maximum allowable weight for the most direct route to your destination), right through to obtaining the Vehicle Approval through an accredited certifier.
