Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2018
14 ABOUT ALC About us The Australian Logistics Council (ALC), based in Canberra, is the peak national body representing the major and national companies participating in the freight logistics industry, with a focus on national supply chain efficiency and safety. ALC is an industry leader, committed to driving policy reforms that will enhance supply chain efficiency and safety, and therefore benefit Australian consumers and businesses. ALC membership has grown significantly in recent years, and now includes a host of major and national businesses that encompass all aspects of the Australian freight logistics supply chain. 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. Freight does not stop at state borders, and ALC is committed to ensuring that our regulatory frameworks reflect that reality. As the federal government continues work to develop the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy, ALC is committed to ensuring that the freight logistics industry’s priorities remain uppermost in the minds of decision-makers. ALC works on the principle that steady, persistent advocacy on issues that are in the national interest is more effective in the long term than noisy, exaggerated special-interest pleading. A nationally consistent approach that avoids wasteful duplication is a key aim of ALC advocacy. ALC seeks sensible, nationally consistent regulation that favours no modality over another, and that improves efficiency without imposing unnecessary burdens on industry. As always, ALC continues to reduce the human and economic costs of unsafe practices by working closely with industry to develop safety codes that will drive national consistency and help all industry participants to manage their Chain of Responsibility obligations.
