At NTI, we're committed to creating safer roads - not only for transport operators but for all road users. That's why we established the National Truck Accident Research Centre (NTARC).

The National Truck Accident Research Centre is an independent research facility wholly funded by NTI Ltd. It's our belief that effective research is crucial for gaining greater insights into serious heavy vehicle crashes. This will allow us to help make sustainable improvements to road safety in Australia.

The NTARC has seen NTI publish several accident research papers and forge relationships with various transport industry bodies to improve road safety. In fact, some of our staff have even been involved in establishing new associations and programs to improve safety!
