The company's profile was also boosted late last year by the airing of a reality television program titled Mega Truckers on Foxtel's A&E channel, which follows the firm's hands-on owner Jon Kelly.
Kelly says that a desire to increase brand exposure was the driving force behind the deal with Erebus.
“This partnership with Erebus Motorsport, particularly with their move to Mercedes-Benz will provide us with massive national and international exposure and coincide with our recent entry into the Western Australia and Northern Territory markets,” he said.
“We are proud to be one of few logistics and transportation companies to support V8 Supercars and we are extremely excited to partner with Erebus at such an exciting time in the sport.”
HHA replaces Lucky 7 as the major sponsor for Slade's entry, which is run under the Racing Entitlements Contract owned by James Rosenberg.
Erebus is not expected to reveal the look of its three V8 Supercars until the week of the category's compulsory pre-season test, which will take place at Sydney Motorsport Park on February 16th.
