Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2011
55 FUTURE FREIGHT NETWORKS 2011 Daryll Hull Managing Director, Transport and Logistics Centre A founder of the centre, Hull announced that one of his key tasks of the day was to officially launch a report: ‘Future Supply Chains 2020’. He thanked all concerned, but then warned attendees that ‘Future Supply Chains 2020’ was a very ‘dense’ report, but well worth the effort to read. Hull noted that the report would be difficult for some, because there is a biological basis for decision-making – including management decision- making. He explained that the human brain gets used to seeing the world and doing things a certain way, and that it hardwires itself to respond in certain ways. These biases become beliefs and paradigms. These beliefs become ideologies and ideologies shape the world. The point made was that ‘Future Supply Chains 2020’ will challenge biases and ideologies – it is about new paradigms. Hull called upon the Australian Logistics Council to remain a thought leader as well as a leader in action. Hull judged the federal government Intergenerational Report as probably the most significant set of documents produced by any Australian Government since World War II. Despite his question: ‘Why should we worry about future generations; what have they ever done for us?’ the message was loud and clear as he challenged attendees to consider that we can’t keep thinking about the world as it has been over the last 20 years, and that we have to change. Close Don Telford ALC Chairman Closing off the conference, Telford reminded everyone of some of the key themes that had been apparent throughout the two days, particularly the emphasis on a national perspective on infrastructure and regulation as essential inputs into a more globally competitive, truly national logistics capability.
