​IFAM is helping restore critical global supply chains for Australian exporters

14.05.2020 Austrade

The International Freight Assistance Mechanism (IFAM), $110 M worth Australian Government initiative have secured more than 350 international flights to date. Flights have been established to send high-end meat, seafood and produce overseas under the federal government's air freight lifeline for exporters.

 
IFAM is helping restore critical global supply chains for Australian exporters of high-value agricultural and fisheries products and other items of national interest. A network of 15 freight forwarders and air freight service providers has been established to support the delivery of the IFAM. The day the IFAM started, 91% of Australia's air freight capacity had collapsed, stated General Michael Byrne International Freight Coordinator in the interview for
AFR.

According to the Department of foreign affairs and trade Australia, space for 11,300 tonnes of seafood, meat and produce had been secured to date.

The IFAM is also enabling importers to bring in essential medical supplies on return flights to support Australia’s response to COVID-19.
