here you go mate,Bit of light reading for you......

My understanding is that It only applies to Single Truck Owner Operators.If you have 2 Trucks you're exempt from the Order.
I can see a big swing to the use of small Fleets by Large Companies to sidestep the New Payment Order..The rest of this year will be "interesting" to say the Least.. Until some sort of Balance is Found...IMHO..

Now available here paymentscalculator.rsrt.gov.au/
Quite different rates for supermarket and long distance
I don't think the industry has quite got its head around this.

My understanding is the definition of ‘contractor driver’ is quite broad and can include a corporation where the vehicle/s are driven mainly by shareholders, directors or their immediate family. So I don't think it matters how many trucks you have.
