Australia’s transport sectors – Road Transport, Logistics, Rail, Aviation, and Maritime and Ports – play the key enabling role in our economic activity. Without the capacities and capabilities provided by their 820,000-strong workforce, no passengers or freight move.
The Transport and Logistics Industry was estimated to account for 8.6 per cent of GDP in 2013, contributing $131.6 billion to the Australian economy. Freight volumes have nearly tripled over the past three decades and passenger movements through Australian airports have more than quadrupled. By every measure in every mode, transport and logistics activity continues to increase.
Adoption of new technology within the industry and changing patterns of world economic activity are revolutionising supply chains. Technology – such as automation, robotics and the field encompassed by ‘Big Data’ – is improving the efficiency, speed and control of supply chains, supporting better forecasting, reducing risk, improving the customer experience and creating ways of meeting new customer demands.
Asia is set to overtake the combined economic output of Europe and North America within the decade to 2020. There will be more than three billion middle-class consumers on Australia’s doorstep by 2030, up from 500 million today. Extensive, efficient and cost-effective supply chains into Asia will be crucial to Australia’s ongoing economic prosperity.
Combined with the explosion in micro supply chains caused by the growth in online shopping, the Transport and Logistics Industry faces a future where it needs a better-skilled workforce working smarter and more efficiently using nationwide infrastructure able to cope with a massive freight task.
