A closer look

Every time you go to the shops, overtake a truck on the highway, have a parcel delivered, pass a construction site or see Australian produce overseas, you are seeing Australia’s freight and supply chain networks in action.

Australia's supply chains are critical to meeting our growing freight task. These freight and supply chains—networks of people and businesses processing, transporting and storing goods—are often behind-the-scenes and can be difficult to see as a whole. However, our supply chains are the key to our future economic success and to strengthening the connections between our regions and urban centres.

To help you understand how the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy supports the critical ‘behind the scenes’ role freight plays in the nation’s economy, we are taking a closer look at areas where the Strategy is in action.
