Freight transport

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.
