Release of the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy 2019-20 Annual Report

Saturday, November 21, 2020

Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) and the Australian Peak Shippers Association (APSA) last week received acknowledgement from the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications for our contribution to the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy and advice that Infrastructure and Transport Ministers endorsed the first annual progress report for the strategy which highlights Australia's freight network performance over the last 12 months.
The report includes:
  • insights gained during the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • progress against over 350 initiatives across the country; and  
  • a statement by the independent Freight Industry Reference Panel, encouraging governments and industry to leverage best practice examples identified in the report, and to ensure accurate, timely and comparable data is gathered to measure freight movements through supply chains across jurisdictional boundaries and transport modes.  
A copy of the report is available HERE
FTA / APSA look forward to continuing our engagement with the department and panel in the new year - for more information, visit
