About Us


Innovative Transport Solutions Pty Ltd is an Australian registered proprietary limited, private company, based at Picton in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Date of incorporation 03/09/1998.

 

Why do you do what you do?

 In 2005 the transport industry, road freight in particular,  were desperate to find a solution to skyrocketing fuel prices. 

We saw an opportunity to fill an untapped market and designed a suitable product.

From the mid-1980s to September 2003, the inflation-adjusted price of a barrel of crude oil was generally under $25 a barrel. During 2003, the price rose above $30, reached $60 by August 11, 2005, and peaked at $147.30 in July 2008.

What did you do?

We produced an affordable solution to this looming problem by designing an aftermarket hybrid system for heavy vehicles. Our first prototype was built "ARGOSY-1" an electric hybrid truck and displayed it at the Sydney Truck Show 8/8/2008. 

It was well received with strong support form the transport industry. We collected orders from potential clients at the show for almost 900 hybrid conversion kits, orders were pending the outcomes from road trials.

The product was exhibited at the Advanced Vehicles & Fuels Expo in Orlando Florida USA in 2009, the concept was well received. With potential clients expressions of interest received in converting their vehicles in the US.

What happened?

Argosy-1 project was not commercialised due to battery manufacturers inability to supply a suitable product. The GFC caused a lot of problems as well with capitol sources drying up. All electric projects were put on hold in January of 2010. This allowed us  to focus on developing our hydraulic hybrid systems, no batteries required. 

What now?

Time has been well spent, we completed our hydraulic hybrid designs.This new hydraulic design produces twice the power at half the cost of the electric hybrid system. Pilot projects are scheduled for the first half of 2012 and commercialisation of the product will commence in the later half of  2012.

What does your company stand for?


We are waging a war on air pollution; over 2 million people die each year from respiratory problems associated with smog.  The greatest single contributor to the urban pollution problem is motor vehicle emissions. Our hybrid conversion kits offer an instant and significant reduction in exhaust emissions, by convert the existing fleets of vehicles into hybrids. 

Smog not only affects humans but every living thing on earth. 

Lets clear the air and bring back blue skies to our cities.
