ALC Promotes Supply Chain Efficiency and Safety with Two New Publications

ALC Promotes Supply Chain Efficiency and Safety with Two New Publications –
Future Freight Networks and Getting the Supply Chain Right

 

ALC pic 1Future Freight Networks and Getting the Supply Chain Right are two new publications by ALC that continue our aim of promoting efficiency and safety in Australia’s supply chains.

Future Freight Networks is our official yearbook for 2016 which details our advocacy efforts throughout the year, the policy positions we took to government, and the major events we held to support our policy agenda.  A feature of Future Freight Networks is a comprehensive summary of ALC Forum 2016, which brought together 250 key industry leaders, policy makers and stakeholders at Royal Randwick to debate and discuss the critical and significant infrastructure policy issues on the national agenda.  The publication also includes many editorials, advertisements and interviews from a range of supply chain industry participants.  I thank those companies for their contribution to the yearbook which illustrates the enormous breadth and depth of our industry.

The outcomes from ALC Forum 2016 are reflected in Getting the Supply Chain Right, the Australian Logistics Council’s 2016 Election Priorities Document.

 

ALC pic 2Getting the Supply Chain Right encourages the next Government to act on six critical areas to improve the efficiency and safety of the logistics industry. These six priority areas include recommendations relating to road, rail, planning, road safety, technology and government structures.  ALC will continue to work with all major parties following the July 2 election to progress these reforms and investments, with the aim of improving the efficiency and safety of our national supply chains.   A shortened summary of Getting the Supply Chain Right is also available for download.

I invite you to share these documents with your stakeholders to help broaden ALC’s message to governments at all levels that they need to prioritise our industry in their investment and policy decisions in order to maximise the economic and social benefits of a safe and efficient logistics industry.
