The ALC wants Infrastructure Australia to be reviewed

The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) has welcomed the appointment of Nicole Lockwood and Mike Mrdak to lead an independent review of Infrastructure Australia.

ALC CEO Dr Hermione Parsons says infrastructure is a key part of ensuring the safety, efficiency and future sustainability of the Australian supply chain.

"Participants across the supply chain acknowledge the need to continue investment in world-class transport infrastructure and it is important that the criticality of infrastructure to the supply chain is considered, to support the economy and meet the growing freight task," Parsons says.

"The ALC looks forward to Infrastructure Australia refocusing efforts on achieving greater productivity and all levels of government continuing to invest in the interest of the national economy."

Parsons says the review is an opportunity to streamline engagement between various levels of government to identify and agree on priority infrastructure.

"We must see investment in infrastructure continue and the development of projects that will deliver real efficiency gains and drive an uplift in productivity," Parsons says.

"To do that all, governments and industry must work together to align our priorities, consistent with achieving the objectives of the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy. 

"The ALC looks forward to continued engagement with the federal government and Infrastructure Australia to support the considerations of the supply chain, freight, logistics and transport sectors to achieve modal shift, reduce emissions and improve outcomes for all Australians."
