In the absence of a national industry approach to improve outcomes relating to psychological safety and physical health for workers across the road transport and logistics sector, 

Australia Post, Coles, Linfox, Toll, Ron Finemore Transport, Woolworths Group and Qube combined as founding partners to establish the Foundation. Further support from the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) and the Federal Government enabled the inception and development of the Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds Foundation.

Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds is a registered stand-alone not-for-profit (NFP) entity for the benefit of the broader road transport and logistics industries, with an independent industry and skills-based board.  The overarching objective is to provide a national holistic approach to improving mental and physical health across the sector.
