Freight transport includes the complex array of supply chains that carry imported and locally produced goods for domestic consumption. This section also analyses our export supply chains, with a particular consideration of agricultural and mineral exports and the key facilities, such as ports, intermodal terminals and airports, that service our international trade.
In this chapter we look at:
- Freight gateways supporting international trade
- The urban freight challenge
- Ensuring the national freight network is effective and efficient
- Unlocking regional economic development through freight.
