Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2011
8 CEO’s Message The past year was a time of change and of challenge for the ALC, with a significant re-positioning and a new focus on advocacy, regulation and infrastructure, with the overall aim of improving the efficiency of the freight Transport and Logistics (T&L) Industry. The strong message from industry participants and government was that ALC should establish itself as the ‘go to’ organisation representing the major and national companies participating in the Australian freight transport and logistics supply chain. ALC undertook that task through the development and now implementation of the ALC Strategic Plan 2011-2013. Future Freight Networks summarises many of the issues that ALC has canvassed over the past year, many of which will continue to be a focus in the years ahead. Australia’s freight task has more than doubled over the last 20 years and is expected to double again by 2030. Some experts predict that it will triple by 2050. Consequently, ALC’s role of advocating greater efficiencies in the T&L supply chain becomes critical, especially since Treasury estimates that Australia’s population will by then have reached 35 million. In the coming year, ALC will focus on the development and implementation of national legislation and regulations for the industry and the provision of nationally significant infrastructure. I look forward to working with you in the future. Michael Kilgariff Managing Director and CEO
