FREIGHT WEEK:iPad app gives insight into transport and logistics


New iPad application launched at Freight Week gives a Victoria-wide snapshot of transport and logistics industry

Victorian Freight and Logistics council (VLFC) has today launched an iPad application to provide a state-wide snapshot of current trends and future directions in the transport and logistics industry.

The Freight Forward 2011 Planning for Growth 2040 application, which is being sold on iTunes, allows users to navigate various decades in the areas of transport, logistics and the supply chain.

The app takes a complete look at state of industry for next three decades and highlights key projects designed to reengineer the way businesses operate.

Filled with information on Victoria’s supply chain networks and infrastructure capabilities, the app also comes with supporting resources and documents as well as links to key industry websites.

Victorian Parliamentary Secretary for Transport Edward O'Donohue says the app is an ideal tool to examine the challenges the industry is going face. He says it covers important topics such as trends, population, workforce and transport networks.

"If you’re an iPad owner, download the app and have a look. I recommend it to you," he says.

Today is the last day of Freight Week, which is a five-day annual event now in its 22nd year.
