The recent combination of natural disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic has made us, as a nation, acutely aware of the essential role of the freight and logistics industry.
The National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy provides a strong foundation for the excellent partnerships formed with industry and governments and will continue to be strengthened as we reflect on progress made.
The Freight Industry Reference Panel was created to provide Infrastructure and Transport Ministers with an independent industry perspective on the Strategy’s delivery and industry a clear line of sight on actions being undertaken through the Strategy.
This survey will support the Panel in developing this advice by gathering industry views on progress. Feedback from this survey will be published as part of the Strategy’s annual report.
Each year the survey aims to gauge:
Awareness of the action areas
Whether you consider governments are working on ‘the right things’ to deliver results and
How well you think the actions are progressing.
This year, the Panel is also seeking broader industry views on:
Reflections on the Strategy and ongoing lessons learned from COVID
The burden of unnecessary freight-related regulation
Innovation across the sector
Community attitudes to freight.
