The Federal Government has outlined key supply chain investments in this week’s 2021-22 Federal Budget.
Victoria will receive $17.5 million for Dairy Supply Chain Road Upgrades and $2 billion initial investment in a new Melbourne Intermodal Terminal for transfer of freight.
Western Australia will receive $160 million in a first package aimed at improving its agricultural supply chain.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison says the investment reflects the Government’s backing of the supply chain and logistics sector.
“Our record funding commitment is creating jobs, boosting business investment, while securing Australia’s COVID recovery,” Morrison says.
The Australian Government will work with the Victorian and WA Governments to deliver proposed investment and industry support.
