ALC urging politicians to prioritise transport in election year

A range of proposals to improve productivity, efficiency and safety in the freight logistics industry are at the forefront of the Australian Logistics Council’s 2013-2014 Pre-Budget Submission.

“Boosting national productivity will be a critical issue this election year and so ALC has set out a range of proposals in its 2013-2014 Pre-Budget Submission which will help address flatlining productivity levels in the transport sector,” said Michael Kilgariff, ALC Managing Director.

“In the context of the federal election being called for 14 September, ALC encourages all sides of politics to analyse the proposals it has put forward in its budget submission to support more efficient supply chains.

“Two keys to improving productivity, efficiency and safety in the freight logistics industry are through better infrastructure and more efficient regulation.

“To that end, we are calling on to government to ensure it places a high priority on investing in nationally significant infrastructure to help meet increasing demand on our major transport networks.”

All issues concerning the freight industry will be discussed at the ALC Forum 2013, to be held on 12-14 March 2013 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
