ALC looks long-term under strategic plan


Peak lobby unveils two-year strategic plan that will deliver long-term report on transport and logistics infrastructure

December 8, 2010

The Australian Logistics Council will use its two-year strategic plan to chart a long-term outlook for transport and logistics infrastructure.

Unveiling the ALC’s Strategic Plan 2011-2013, Chairman Don Telford says the group will compile a report on current infrastructure requirements and how demand for transport and logistics services might developer to 2030 and beyond.

The report will analyse what demand will mean for infrastructure requirements and outline strategies to address the issue.

Telford says the two-year plan will help the ALC fulfil its role of representing the road, rail, sea and air industries.

"It is clear that governments are increasingly looking for a view that reflects the depth of the transport and logistics industry and the efficiency of the total supply chain," Telford says.

"The ALC Strategic Plan 2011-2013 is a response to that requirement."

The strategy will also promote the ALC’s national logistics safety code, energy efficiency and climate change.

Telford says the strategy includes providing industry input on national transport policy such as the heavy vehicle regulator which aims to end cross-border inconsistencies in the trucking industry.
