An OX with a high IQ

Alexandria Joy - Wednesday, June 26, 2013

There are four key qualities needed to be a successful leader or business in today's modern marketplace and boost your Uniqueness Quotient (UQ) Power - I, EQ, Body and Vision. One of the qualities in particular is IQ or your Ideation Quotient - the ability to innovate and generate new ideas.

We love seeing examples of IQ muscles being flexed and we think this unique innovation is no exception. Meet the OX Truck - a new flat pack truck that could be suited to our own mining, resources and agricultural industries here in Australia.

It's a truck that arrives flat packed for assembly, just like a piece of Ikea furniture. It takes 3 men approximately 5 hours to prepare the fla
t pack in the UK and on arriving at its destination takes 3 people about 11.5 hours to assemble the vehicle from the flat pack. 

The OX has been designed specifically for developing countries where water and food are often a long journey away. It is the same length as a normal car, has a payload capacity of 2,000kg but weighs just 1,500kg. It can carry 13 people or 8 x 44 gallon drums of oil. 

The brain child of Sir Torquil Norman, this innovation out of the UK could change the face of transport globally. Although designed for developing areas, the OX has also had a lot of interest from farmers, estate owners and people on the land who need capacity and agility over rough terrain. This incredible feat of engineering will certainly take the eye of not only people who have the need for a vehicle like this, but certainly from its competitors.

Well Heidi this certainly meets your criteria for uniqueness quotient! It is definitely innovative. Hope it does really well in Australia!

Interesting to see what ideas people come up with. I've never heard of a flatpack truck before but that could be a great way to efficiently move large numbers of vehicles somewhere without the large fossil fuel expenditure. Not to mention the benefits that this vehicle seems to offer.

Wow! Way to think outside of the box--in more ways than one!

That is totally cool!!! Love that you have an eye out for the UQ in things.

Wow, look at that thing. I'm amazed how it can be shipped and then assembled right on the spot.
