1. Australia is an island nation and depends on a safe, efficient and environmentally sustainable maritime sector for its national productivity. Around 25 percent of the domestic freight task (on a tonne kilometre basis) is carried by ships, with this number set to increase over the coming years.

    Growth in export volumes, including a rise in containerised and non-containerised trade, will increase demand for international sea transport. Increased demand relating to growth in tourism is projected, which includes passenger cruises and coastal maritime operators. New investment in offshore oil and gas projects will also intensify the need for qualified seafarers.

  2. Road transport is the predominant mode for moving freight around Australia. It is a vital link in the increasingly complex logistics chains that take freight to ports and terminals and distribute urban freight between warehouses and retail outlets.

    Information technology and customer demand are driving a more integrated approach to logistics management, with widespread use of real-time freight tracking through electronic monitoring and messaging systems installed in transport vehicles.

    Improvements in efficiency, productivity and safety in the road transport sector are imperative if the Transport and Logistics Industry is to meet the increasing freight task. Road transport also includes businesses that provide passenger transport such as buses, coaches and taxis, which deal with the challenges of operating in congested urban centres and the impact of fluctuations in the tourism industry.

  3. The logistics and warehousing sector is an integral part of Australia’s supply chain, and which is becoming more integrated, transparent, accountable and agile.

  4. Port performance and land-side logistics chains are critical to facilitate innovation, productivity gains and economic growth in Australia. Growth in international trade has reshaped port operations, which have become increasingly complex.

    Port operations need a highly skilled and flexible workforce that can meet the requirements of a time-sensitive integrated logistics system. Efficient ports rely on cooperation and coordination across transport modes and the development of strong relationships with key customers.

  5. Demand for rail freight transport will continue to be affected by the performance of its key markets (i.e. producers of coal, other mineral ores, grains and the manufacturing industries). Increased production results in greater demand for rail freight services.

    Demand for passenger rail is increasing in line with employment growth and rising domestic tourism levels. The Australian rail sector employs more than 40,000 people directly and another 60,000 indirectly. An efficient, effective and safe rail system is required to meet Australia’s short and long-term transport needs.

The industry encompasses activities in Logistics and Warehousing, Road Transport, Aviation, Rail, and Maritime and Ports. Because of its integration within the economy and the embedded nature of its functions, the relative ‘health’ of the industry is often considered a barometer for the overall strength of the economy.

The industry has a diverse range of occupations, from crews of vehicles, trains, vessels and aircraft, to staff involved in engineering, infrastructure, tourism, hospitality, security, retailing, warehousing, administration, and information technology.
