Transpacifc Industries has grounded its entire fleet following a fatal crash at the bottom of the South Eastern Freeway in Adelaide. It’s not the first time there’s been an accident at this spot and there have been calls for the government to do something about it. Heavy trucks lose braking power due to the steep entrance.
Our condolences go out to those affected by the accident and their families, and we commend management for taking decisive action to prevent further accidents. As analysts, however, we must examine the financial impact.
