Toll and Volvo Trucks make a metre matter
Toll and Volvo Trucks have teamed up to support Australia’s leading advocacy group, the Amy Gillett Foundation (AGF).
With cycling becoming increasingly popular on Australian roads, finding ways for cyclists and motor vehicles to share the road has become a road safety priority.
As two companies that prioritise safety as a core value, transport and logistics leader Toll along with Volvo Trucks joined forces to support the Amy Gillett Foundation by sponsoring the Amy’s Share the Road tour.
The tour ran from Brisbane to Airlie Beach, a 1,100km journey to raise awareness of the ‘A Metre Matters’ campaign, raising awareness about minimum distances for motorists passing bike riders.

A year ago Toll joined with the Amy Gillett Foundation to promote safety on Australian roads as part of its broader corporate responsibility program.
As part of its sponsorship, a fleet of co-branded trucks carry the message: A Meter Matters, across the Toll network, urging all road users to leave space for cyclists.
Toll and Volvo Trucks are now working together to support the Foundation’s vision for safe cycling throughout Australia and to achieve the ultimate target of zero cycling fatalities.
Toll has invested in Volvo trucks equipped with sophisticated safety systems, including Lane Changing Support – a radar that scans the driver’s blind spot and sounds an alarm if it detects anything in the lane beside the truck.
