"The new body will not only discuss freight and supply chain issues, but provide input into government strategies, policies and projects," Farraway says.

The new council will replace the freight and logistics advisory council and the road freight industry council to represent the entire freight chain across different transport modes as a single council.

The new council will meet four times a year starting in June, with new appointees remaining on the council for a term of two years.
