I'm on a mission to save as much old 8mm and 16mm footage pertaining to our industry as I can.

What we save will be uploaded to this site, for the industry to see. It's expensive to convert film-stock to digital, however - it needs to be done before more valuable history ends up in the tip.

Go here to the 'History Bin' to see this and other clips.

If you know of any material worth saving - contact me here - Editor - Truckarchive
Old pix
As well as old film, we will be safeguarding old photos and slide collections as they come our way also. 
Have a look at some of these slides from George Wallis's logging days down near the Haast Pass, where he and his crew helped carve out the road into Otago so they could get their logs through.
Warning - lots of great shots of Internationals photographed on the Haast and Lindis Pass regions during sixties.

Introducing www.truckarchive.co.nz...

www.truckarchive.com was created to store and archive video and photographic material of the New Zealand road transport industry. We are embarking on a program of accumulating content about our industry that showcases both the equipment and landscapes that we operate in and organising it into a searchable database.

We welcome all old movies pertaining to the industry and will host them with suitable acknowledgements free of charge, and over time will embark on uploading what we consider to be significant photographic collections.

On this site you will find mini-documentaries on the industry, as well as a wealth of clips taken by helicopter and UAV as well as ground and vehicle based video caputure systems to a broadcast standard. This site was made possible by the encouragement and support of our sponsors who also see the need to record some of the unique aspects of our operating environments and the day-to-day operations that all-to-soon slide into history... 

We welcome historic content - photographic, movie or video editor@truckarchive.co.nz  

Truckarchive.co.nz - provider of broadcast quality footage of the industry since 1999



This website is dedicated to showcasing the New Zealand road transport industry and the environment in which it works in the best light possible.

The hundreds of clips on this site capture moments in time of the industry at work, and cumulatively form the basis of a video-archive designed to house as broad a spectrum of the industry's activities as is possible.

This material can be used for promotional, educational, documentary or broadcast end use by third parties and is intended to be an industry resource and video database.

We are constantly uploading new material along as well as building up a library of historic photographs and footage as they become available in order to offer a digital safeguard for material that otherwise might be lost to us.
