The implementation of recommendations contained within the Strengthening Queensland’s Supply Chains Report (SQSC) will form the foundation of the QTLC’s ongoing work program over the next 12 months. In addition to undertaking to deliver the SQSC recommendations the QTLC will focus on progressing the following projects:
- Heavy Vehicle Access Forum with industry and government to identify and address issues with permitting system processes.
- Collaborating with industry and government to use real time traffic data to manage congestion.
- Engage with agricultural producers and key above and below rail operators to progress opportunities for increasing agricultural commodities on rail through to the Port of Brisbane.
- Engage with LGAQ to develop local regional freight transport plans focusing on “places for freight”.
With the QTLC having already delivered on the key priorities it identified in 2012 – 2014 Operational Plan, this new body of work will ensure that QTLC continues its focus on progressing outcomes for the freight and transport industry and being responsive to its emerging needs.
