Tasmanian Transport Schemes

The links below provide information on the background, purpose and funding of programmes which are aimed at alleviating the cost disadvantage associated with transportation of freight and passenger vehicles to Tasmania by sea.

  • From 1 July 2014, assistance will no longer be offered through the Tasmanian Wheat Freight Scheme (TWFS). No claims have been received through the TWFS since August 2009. The TWFS offered support to shippers of bulk wheat. Wheat is now being shipped to Tasmania in containers and receives support through the Tasmanian Freight Equalisation Scheme.
