Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2016
16 ABOUT ALC About us The Australian Logistics Council, based in Canberra at the National Press Club building, is the peak business council for the Australian logistics industry. ALC is the leader in the national debate on the Australian logistics supply chain industry. ALC members have a ‘seat at the table’ in the major decisions affecting the industry. ALC membership has grown significantly in the past five years, with now more than 50 Corporate Members and Associates. These include the major and national businesses with interests across the spectrum of the Australian freight logistics supply chain. The broadening and deepening of ALC membership has made ALC a more representative organisation. It now speaks as much for its members as for all Australians, because we all have an interest as consumers, customers, businesses and employees in efficient supply chains to reduce unnecessary costs, and to raise standards of living. In the past year, ALC has done much work to improve diversity and inclusion among members, and in the industry generally. ALC works with government at all levels to ensure that they consider freight logistics in their investment and policy decisions in order to develop efficient national supply chains and to maximise benefits to the national economy. ALC works on the principle that steady, persistent advocacy of things that are in the national interest is more effective in the long term than noisy, exaggerated, special-interest pleading. Nationally consistent approaches that avoid wasteful duplication are a key aim of ALC advocacy. ALC aims for a productive, efficient and safe freight logistics industry because it is important to all Australians. It aims to reduce costs to consumers and business in the supply chain by driving economic efficiency through our retail, manufacturing, mining, energy, communications and construction sectors. It seeks sensible, nationally consistent regulation that favours no sector over another, and that improves efficiency without imposing unnecessary burdens on industry. A critical part of that efficiency is the improvement of safety throughout the supply chain. ALC aims to reduce the human and economic costs of unsafe practices. ALC has developed or is developing industry safety codes to drive national consistency and manage Chain of Responsibility obligations.
