Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2012
a review of progress in tackling blockages to freight efficiency Towards an Efficient Freight Future Towards an Efficient Freight Future – a review of progress in tackling blockages to freight efficiency is a new report commissioned by ALC to analyse what action has been taken to address 23 critical supply chain blockages identified in an earlier ALC report in 2008. The report, by Economic Connections Pty Ltd, focuses on the extent to which the blockages have been given consideration by Infrastructure Australia (IA) in their reports to government. The report also contains a number of high-level recommendations designed to stimulate policy debate among industry and government to achieve a more efficient freight future. For example, it recommends that Infrastructure Australia undertake transparent and detailed public reporting with implementation of the national strategies and infrastructure proposals recommended to IA. Increased reporting such as this would help to bridge the gap between methodologies, plans and assessments on the one hand, and on the other, real on-the-ground action. Towards an Efficient Freight Future – a review of progress in tackling blockages to freight efficiency is available on the ALC website: www.austlogistics.com.au See the following pages for the report’s recommendations and review of supply chain blockages. 69 FUTURE FREIGHT NETWORKS 2012
