ALC releases 2017 Forum program

The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) has released the program for its 2017 Forum which will take place 7­–9 March in Melbourne, Victoria. The Forum 2017 will focus on the required content of the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy.
The need for such a strategy has been championed by ALC in its election priorities document, ‘Getting the Supply Chain Right’, its video ‘Now is the Time to Get the Supply Chain Right’, and also by Infrastructure Australia in its 15-Year Infrastructure Plan.
In late 2016, the Government committed to establishing a National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy following a comprehensive independent inquiry into how best to support the productivity and efficiency of Australia’s freight supply chain.
ALC’s Forum will focus on the issues that will need to be addressed by the Strategy, including nationally significant supply chains and their access to supporting infrastructure, the adequacy of the institutional framework supporting freight networks, reforms and investments that will affect the efficient movement of freight and the key bodies overseeing their efficient operation.
Speakers confirmed so far include representatives for the major ports including Port of Melbourne Corporation, Aurizon, Australia Post, Australian Rail Track Corporation, Qube, Woolworths and Infrastructure Australia. Hon Darren Chester MP, Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, and Hon Luke Donnellan MP, Minister for Roads and Road Safety and Minster for Ports, will also be sharing their insight at the event.
