A freight committee of 11 members has been re-elected by the Victorian Transport Association (VTA).

Described as the "engine room" by VTA CEO Phil Lovel, the committee will report to the VTA on policy directions and issues such as productivity, safety, technology, people and environment.

Leaders from the freight industry such as Australia Post, Border Express, and Victorian Freight Specialist are on the committee.

Their knowledge and expert advice is highly valued by the VTA, Lovel says.

Peter Anderson from Border Express was re-elected for his sixth term as the chairman of the Committee, with Angela Murphy from Murphy Transport re-elected as the vice chairman.

"Peter’s long-term commitment to the VTA is outstanding and the stability he brings to the role has helped the committee to stay focussed and effective," Lovel says.

"Angela continues to demonstrate that gender is no barrier to activate industry representation at the highest level."

Lovel has hinted at what will drive the committee’s focus in the year ahead, referring to evolving state and federal regulatory requirements.

He adds that the industry must get involved in improving its success an profitability by addressing skills shortages, innovation and best practice, safety outcomes and environmental improvements.
