VFF appointed to freight strategy group

The VFF has secured a direct say in the Victorian Government’s refresh of its freight strategy. 

Along with other key port and freight organisations, the VFF has been appointed to the Department of Transport and Planning’s Industry Stakeholder Reference Group. 

Membership of the reference group includes: 

  • Australian Logistics Council
  • Australian Peak Shippers Association 
  • Australasian Railway Association
  • Cement Concrete and Aggregates Australia
  • Freight & Trade Alliance
  • Linfox
  • Port of Melbourne Corporation
  • Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry
  • Victorian Transport Association

The group had its first meeting yesterday, 25 March 2024.

The reference group has the primary goal to progress the updating of the 2018 Victorian Freight Plan: Delivering the Goods providing the future development of Victoria’s freight system with the broader focus to support the liveability and prosperity of all Victorians.

The VFF will work to see that the plan highlights key issues that matter to Victoria’s agricultural industry. 

The new plan is expected to be published within the next 12 months and VFF members are encouraged to get in touch with the VFF Policy & Advocacy Team if they are interested in having direct input into the strategy.
