National Freight and Supply Chain Priorities - 2017 Submission
In summary, the ECA recommends the National Freight and Supply Chain strategy prioritise:
- minimising the cost of getting goods to and through ports/airports, including by ensuring the ACCC closely oversees infrastructure access, pricing and services;
- reducing regulatory costs and barriers to trade by developing a single window for trade that incorporates the domestic supply chain and can also in the future link to similar systems in other countries
- developing a meaningful international benchmarking and national performance framework, and ensure cross-industry monitoring, across multiple locations
- embracing technological advances that will help drive future efficiencies, and enable new business models.
Given the importance of infrastructure on Australia’s international competitiveness, the ECA recommends the Australian Government seek greater input from exporters and importers on infrastructure planning and prioritisation.

"In 2014 Vekta Automation became involved in the Export Awards and started to get a better understanding about the role of the Export Council of Australia. After attending a seminar in Perth in February 2019 the decision was instantly made and we signed up the next day. A decision we should have made 5 years earlier. For Vekta, the information, expertise and networking opportunities that the ECA provides has been valuable. It is reassuring knowing that there are experienced and knowledgeable people we can turn to when advice is needed."
