Queensland transport company unveils Indigenous-themed truck

Cairns-based trucking company Swiss Line Transport is all revved up to celebrate NAIDOC Week (July 2-9) with one of its trucks wrapped in Indigenous-themed artwork.

The project was carried out by Western Truck Group in collaboration with Volvo Trucks Australia.

The new FH16 will join Swiss Line’s Cairns-based fleet.

The artwork, which was designed by Queensland-based Indigenous artist Jacob Sarra, symbolises Volvo Group Australia’s journey as part of the reconciliation movement.

Andre Voegeli, owner of Swiss Line, is passionate about advocating for his local Indigenous community and was thrilled to have been one of the only three Volvo customers in Australia involved in this project.

The new FH16 Volvo will join Swiss Line’s fleet doing transport runs up and down the Queensland coast.

“From the entire Western Truck Group and Volvo Group Australia teams, we congratulate Andre on his new one-of-a-kind truck – we know it will be a stand out on the roads for many years to come,” said Joe White, Western Truck Group’s dealer principal.
