Freight and Logistics

Freight and Logistics

The Freight and Logistics sector is critical to our country’s economy.

It includes road, rail, sea, air transportation and supporting services such as warehousing, storage, freight forwarding and customs brokerage for both domestic and international trade.

The industry contributes 8.6% to Australia's GDP and it's estimated that a 1% increase in productivity would add $2 billion. Our aim is to improve the efficiency, security and visibility of stakeholders' supply chains in this industry, and we do this through helping stakeholders implement the GS1 system - here and overseas.
