WEBSITE During the year, ALC launched its new and improved website – www.austlogistics.com.au – which highlights the issues of the moment, and promotes the benefits of a more productive, efficient and safe freight logistics industry. NEWSLETTER Every month, ALC distributes ALC Update to more than 6000 email subscribers. The newsletter enables ALC members to pick up on issues and ideas, and spread the message more broadly. MEDIA ACTIVITY During the year, Managing Director Michael Kilgariff had several major articles published in the print media, which explored themes on the importance of not allowing efficiency in the supply chain to be undermined by land-use planning, sectional interests and political inertia. The articles pointed out the importance of transport and infrastructure in improving the standards of living of Australians, and the extent of the freight task in the future. At any given time, the ALC website carries more than a dozen media backgrounders, which enable journalists to quickly get accurate material about major infrastructure and supply issues. Again, these helped put to the public the importance of issues relating to the supply chain, transport and infrastructure. ALC issued 60 media releases in 2013/2014. These resulted in around 90 mentions in the media, outlining the concerns of ALC before the public, and generally contributing to the debate on infrastructure and the supply chain. ALC used occasions of the announcement of policy and infrastructure proposals, key appointments and other developments affecting efficiency and safety in the supply chain to enter the public debate.
