National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy

On 24 November 2016 the Australian Government announced it will develop a national freight and supply chain strategy to increase the productivity and efficiency of Australia's freight supply chain.

The strategy is in response to Infrastructure Australia's Australian Infrastructure Plan, and will be informed by the findings of an independent inquiry. The inquiry will determine how to best lift the productivity and efficiency of Australia's freight supply chain.

The Inquiry, to be assisted by a four member Expert Panel, will examine regulatory and investment barriers as well as opportunities to improve freight capacity and reduce business costs. The inquiry will provide a final report to the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport by March 2018.

The Inquiry will include a public consultation period and an opportunity for interested parties to make submissions.

To assist you a series of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) have been developed.
