The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) says it has congratulated Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, and the Australian Labor Party on the federal election result.

It has also acknowledged the outgoing Coalition government for its leadership and support of the freight and logistics sector over the last parliamentary term.

“We congratulate Prime Minister Albanese and the Australian Labor Party on their election victory, and we look forward to working with the new government in the interests of the end-to-end supply chain and the Australian economy,” Brad says.

“However, with global supply chain challenges still impacting across the economy, it is critical that the focus remains on supply chain efficiency, productivity, and resilience,” he adds.

“During the last two years, the industry and government have collaborated closely to ensure we keep freight moving, and keep the nation supplied, fed, and fuelled and we will continue that effort with the new government.”

The ALC says during the election campaign, it has outlined several priorities to help achieve supply chain efficiency and safety as well as drive productivity and ensure reform to safeguard against future shocks.

The ALC’s priorities are the following:

  • A strategic approach to building our rail freight capacity and freight intermodals to help drive modal shift from road to rail
  • An early review of the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy to incorporate pandemic and supply chain disruption learnings and re-focus planning and investment
  • Assist industry with the journey to net zero emissions
  • Building skills to help address current shortages and future needs
  • Implementing a National Road User Charge to maintain infrastructure investment
