ALC

The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) says it will hold its 2022 national forum in Sydney May 25 at the Sheraton Grand where it will focus on freight and supply chain.

Industry leaders and speakers will be featured during the event with attendees including:

  • Kate Pounder, CEO of Tech Council of Australia
  • Andrew McKellar, CEO of Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI)
  • Professor Veena Sahajwalla, Director of the Centre for Sustainable Materials, Research & Technology at UNSW
  • Thomas Knudsen, Managing Director of Toll Group
  • Romily Madew, CEO of Infrastructure Australia
  • Rebecca Pickering, CEO of Inland Rail

“As we emerge from the back-to-back challenges of the last few years, the freight, logistics and supply chain industry in Australia is re-setting its priorities, with a renewed focus on end-to-end efficiency and productivity, safety, the resilience of supply chain systems, with an accelerated focus on climate change adaptation and making a step change in emissions reduction,” Philip Davies, ALC Chair and host of Forum 2022 says.

“This is an opportunity for senior industry leaders, policy makers, technology experts, and innovators to exchange ideas and discuss the state-of-play in the sector,” he adds.

Brad Williams, ALC CEO says Forum 2022 is a forward-looking event focused on preparing for the immensity of the growing freight task.

“As leaders in Australia’s end-to-end supply chain industry, we are at a critical juncture and the importance of what we do has probably never been so visible or so important,” Brad says.

“Australia’s urban freight task alone is expected to grow by 60 per cent by 2040 and our urban infrastructure is already groaning under the weight of capacity constraints,” he adds.

“As we look at what lies ahead, we have a unique opportunity to drive policy, structural and technological change that will build our capacity to absorb major shocks and allow us to respond to the growing needs and expectations of Australian households, businesses, and communities.”
