Building a National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy for Australia

Building a National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy for Australia

 

The Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, has committed the Australian Government to developing a National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy in the 2016 Annual Infrastructure Statement to Parliament.


“We will develop a strategy to increase the productivity and efficiency of Australia’s freight supply chain.  
And we will collect and publicly release data on the performance of transport services, including freight and passenger services, so that we can target improvements to these essential elements in our infrastructure.

“In response to the Infrastructure Australia plan, we will develop a strategy to increase the productivity and efficiency of Australia’s freight supply chain. This will identify a set of reforms and investments to ensure we have sufficient capacity to meet the growing demand for freight and improve the efficiency of movements both road and rail. It includes creating the right settings for more private investment in the national network.

“The first stages of construction will start next year on the Melbourne to Brisbane inland rail, which will allow freight to move between those two cities in under a day, remove 200,000 trucks from roads each year and add $22½ billion to the Australian economy.”
