Freight Victoria has been established to coordinate the development of an efficient freight and logistics system.
The new division is the central point of contact for industry, local government and other stakeholders on freight and logistics matters.
It will also coordinate existing industry engagement forums and harness private and public sector investment in Victoria’s freight network.
Victorian freight plan
The Victorian Government has released a state-wide plan to support industries involved in the movement of goods.
Total freight volumes are predicted to increase substantially in coming years, led by strong growth in the state's population.
Delivering the Goods sets out short, medium and long-term priorities to support our freight and logistics system through this period of unprecedented growth and rapid change in the broader environment, while allowing us to embrace new opportunities in the future.
It outlines the initiatives we will take over the next five years to improve how we move goods to their local, interstate and overseas markets.
The plan also provides a long-term blueprint to guide investment in the freight network and further strengthen the state's freight advantage.
