McPhee features in Queen’s Birthday Honours awards

Lines flies the flag for shipping in scanty list for transport and logistics industry


Noted transport and logistics figure John McPhee is one of the very few transport and logistics identities to feature in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

McPhee is recognised with as a member in the general division (AM) for "significant service to the road transport industry in the area of supply chain and logistics, and to the community".

Inducted into the National Road Transport Hall of Fame with wife Laura in 2008, McPhee was the third generation to run the family transport company, one that has since undergone changes in name and focus after TNT bought the overnight express arm more than a decade ago.

John Lines, another in the senior freight executive, this time in the shipping sector, is also an AM recipient.

The managing director of shipping firm ANL wins his for "significant service to the shipping and the transport logistics industries through leadership and advisory roles, and to professional organisations".

Somewhat more peripherally, Infrastructure Australia director Gabrielle Trainor features in the officer of the general division section for "distinguished service to the community through consultancy roles, particularly in the field of transport ad infrastructure planning and design", amongst other things.

Trainor has been a director of entities including the NSW State Rail Authority.

Gaining a medal in the general division (OAM) "for service to the community, particularly to road safety" was Allan McCormac.

McCormac has been national director of Toll Driver Reviver for several years.

More to come.
