Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2014
16 ALC MEMBERS About Us The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) based in Canberra at the National Press Club, is the peak business council for the Australian logistics industry. ALC is a leader, if not the leader, in the national debate on the Australian logistics supply chain industry. Through ALC, its members have a ‘seat at the table’ in the major decisions affecting the industry. ALC membership has grown significantly in the last four years, with now more than 50 Corporate and Associate Members. These include major and national businesses with interests across the spectrum of the Australian freight logistics supply chain. Over the next three years, ALC will consolidate its position as the representative body for the major Australian logistics customers, providers, infrastructure owners and suppliers. 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. ALC works with government at all levels to ensure that it considers freight logistics in its investment and policy decisions in order to develop efficient national supply chains, and to maximise their benefits to the national economy. 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. About Us Vision Lead advocacy organisation to all levels of government and industry on freight transport and logistics supply chain regulation and infrastructure issues. Mission To influence national transport and infrastructure, regulation and policy to ensure that Australia has safe, secure, reliable, sustainable and internationally competitive supply chains. Objectives • To be the nationally recognised voice of Australia’s freight transport and logistics supply chain. • To be the leading advocate of appropriate national regulation and infrastructure, to ensure Australia enjoys the full benefits of freight transport and logistics policy development and reform. • To promote and encourage greater recognition by government and the community of the importance of the freight transport and logistics industry’s contribution to Australia’s economy. Outcome The Australian Logistics Council is viewed by all levels of government and industry as the primary source of information on freight. Alc Strategic Framework
