  • The National Freight Task

    • This trend is expected

    to continue at a growing rate over the next 40 years

  • Australia’s freight logistics industry

    • Australia’s rising freight task is expected to:

    – Increase by 80% between 2010-2030

    – Nearly triple by 2050

    • Victoria’s Freight and Logistics sector contributed between $19- 23 billion of the State’s economy in 2011

  • Australia’s freight logistics industry

    • Represented 8.6% of the nation’s GDP in 2013

    • Directly contributed $131.6 billion to Australia’s economy in 2013.

    • A 1% improvement in efficiency will yield a $2 billion-a-year benefit

  • ALC supports long term lease of the Port of Melbourne

    • Recycling of assets can realise needed funds for new logistics infrastructure projects if ‘properly done’

    – Through explaining to the community the financial reason for asset disposal

    – Clearly identifying public benefits

    • Proposal must possess a net positive benefit

    • Funds raised must be invested in the productivity enhancing infrastructure

    • The asset should not be pursued to the detriment of competition and freight efficiency

  • • ALC generally supports the passage of the Bill

    • Legislation can be strengthened – How the port is regulated and how the funds raised are spent

    – Economic regulation must be sufficiently rigorous

    • ALC welcomes announcement that the ESC will have power to conduct reviews

    • Victorian Transport Fund – Proceeds from the ports long term lease must be prioritised

    • ALC believes Investments in Infrastructure should be informed by Infrastructure Victoria

  • ALC encourages a review of Australia’s port needs

    • No immediate need to develop a second Victorian port

    • ALC would like IA to review Australia’s port needs over the next 30 years

    • Must consider land preservation to underpin the efficient use of the asset in the future

  • Infrastructure Australia’s Infrastructure Audit – ALC Response

    • Auditing the National Land Freight Strategy to identify areas for action, including road reform; implementation of the National Ports Strategy and establishing a national body to progress freight reforms

    • Encouraging the development of Inland Rail

    • Implementing practical measures to accelerate necessary road reforms

    • Prioritising the efficient use of High Productivity Vehicles travelling to and from Australia’s major ports

  • • Ensuring there is greater focus on achieving efficient rail linkages between intermodal terminals and ports, running in conjunction with a major review of Australia’s port needs over the next 30 years

    • Establishing a defined and measurable definition of the ‘efficient use’ of existing and future infrastructure

    • Identifying where investments in technology improvements will deliver the greatest economic return

    • Encouraging and prioritising private sector investment in logistics infrastructure to improve the efficiency and competiveness of Australia’s supply chains.

  • Conclusion

    • An efficient and functioning logistics sector is fundamental to a strong and prosperous economy

    • Stronger Supply Chains = A Stronger Australia
