Queensland Transport and Logistics Council names new CEO to run the show amid a busy period for the advisory body

December 15, 2011

The Queensland Transport and Logistics Council has named a new CEO to run the show amid a busy period for the advisory body.

Dr Rebecca Michael will lead the council after a stint as a high-level infrastructure advisor at the Local Government Association of Queensland.

QTLC Chairman Neil Findlay says Michael’s background in government relations and economics will position the group to make a key contribution to the development of national transport reforms, which are due to begin on January 1, 2013.

With freight volumes set to double by 2030, and multiple national and state freight policy reforms currently underway across the road, rail and maritime sectors, Findlay says the council's workload is expanding rapidly.

He says the QTLC has formed three key working groups to address emerging challenges facing the freight industry, with the focus ranging from access and regulation, infrastructure and planning, and intermodal.

The council also advised the state’s government on the development of its Integrated Freight Strategy that is designed to guide future investment in the freight sector.

The strategy supports greater use of higher productivity vehicles, preserving freight corridors, the use of technology to better manage the road network and working with the supply chain to improve scheduling practices.
