FPJ1403B - Harvey-Sutton, M (2017), Getting Freight Right for Agriculture – A Key Piece to Becoming a $100 Billion Industry

In our land of sweeping plains, the journey from paddock to plate can be a long and costly exercise. How can governments collaborate to drive down costs, and unlock the soaring potential of Australian agriculture? Transport infrastructure in Australia is at a crossroads. Ageing infrastructure, mounting maintenance costs, a lack of new investment or even a clear strategy is throttling agricultural development. Farming takes place in every corner of our vast continent – often far removed from arterial roads and freight routes. This leaves the sector perilously beholden to freight costs, as we move produce that ‘last mile’ to link in with major supply chains.
