Achieving nationally consistent and efficient regulation in the logistics industry is not your every-day headline grabbing issue. It is easy to understand why many people underestimate its importance to the national economy.
But the reality is, ensuring transport laws are consistent and efficient is of fundamental importance to every Australian, as we all purchase goods moved by the logistics industry.
When transport laws differ around the country, the cost of transporting goods across state borders increases. And when new laws conflict with legislation already in place, it causes inefficiencies, costs and regulatory overlap.
ALC works with all layers of government to ensure Australia’s regulatory framework supports an efficient and safe logistics industry.
