About the QLTC

Who we are

The QTLC is funded by the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) and acts as an independent advisory body.

What we do

As the respected industry body representing the views of the freight transport and logistics industry, the QTLC advocates for the provision of infrastructure, regulation and policy that will support sustainable freight transport and logistics in Queensland.

Vision & Values

The QTLC is a cooperative industry and Government advisory body that provides advice to industry stakeholders on the development, planning, regulation and operation of freight and logistics transport, infrastructure and services in Queensland.

The Council’s objectives are to:

  • Promote the efficiency and development of the freight transport and logistics industry in Queensland, including the movement of goods to urban, intrastate, interstate and overseas markets across all modes of transport; and
  • Facilitate improved efficiency and integration of freight transport infrastructure throughout the freight logistics chain.

The Council will do this by identifying issues impacting on the State’s freight movements as raised by industry and Government, exchanged views as to the means of progressing resolution of those issues and then determine a solution which can form the basis of advice given in an objective and holistic manner to industry and the Government.

  • Integrated regional and urban planning frameworks that secure land for current and future freight corridors;
