Freight and Logistics Council of WA
An increasing population and the growth in urban densification provides challenges in achieving a sustainable balance between community amenity and freight efficiency. In addition, growing levels of trade mean ever-greater demands on our road and rail networks, on our ports and shipping services, and on our airports.
To respond to this growth, it is important that there is a shared vision on how to cater for future demands on our freight network in a manner that works for both the State’s economy, for industry and for the community.
The Freight and Logistics Council of Western Australia contributes towards this vision through the provision of independent advice on strategic policy issues impacting the delivery of successful freight services in the State. The Council is a forum where freight users and service providers sit side-by-side with Government policy makers to ensure the efficiency and sustainability of the State’s freight system in order to meet the Government’s freight and transport agenda and commitment to local jobs.
