The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) is congratulating the recently elected federal government and calling on them to make changes to increase supply chain efficiency in Australia.

The ALC says the freight and supply chain sector requires attention to ensure the nation remains supplied and that major problems don’t occur.

"We congratulate Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and the federal government on their election victory and we look forward to working with them in the interests of the end-to-end supply chain," ALC CEO Brad Williams says.

"But with global supply chain challenges still impacting across the economy, it is critical that the focus remains on supply chain efficiency, productivity and resilience.

"During the past two years the industry and government have collaborated closely to ensure we keep freight moving and keep the nation supplied, fed and fuelled – we’ll continue that effort with the new government."

The ALC referred to its election priorities that it issued during the campaign as methods to achieve supply chain efficiency and safety in Australia while also driving productivity and reform against future shocks.

These include:

  • A strategic approach to building rail freight capacity and freight intermodals to drive modal shift from road to rail
  • An early review of the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy relating to pandemic and supply chain disruptions learnings
  • Assist industry with the journey to net zero emissions
  • Building skills to help address current shortages and future needs
  • Implementing a National Road User Charge to maintain infrastructure investment

The ALC says it also acknowledges the outgoing coalition government for their support of the freight and logistics sector while looking ahead to the next term with the new government.
