WA Freight and Logistics Symposium 2018- Leaders Morning Event

September 18, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm


As the WA economy grows pressures are being felt in the road transport and commercial vehicle sectors. These pressures if not managed early have the potential to inhibit growth.

These symposiums run by CCI in conjunction with Western Roads Federation (WRF), will invite industry operators from all segments of the transport and commercial vehicle sector, as well as Government and Business leaders to identify, discuss and propose short term and long-term solutions to ensure our sector is able to support WA’s renewed growth.

0825- 0850 How WA is addressing the driver and skills shortage.  But how does transport and logistics industry adopt a longer term strategy?
0855 – 0930 Why we need too and how do we expand access and higher productivity vehicles networks.
0930 – 1000 How do we develop a regulatory model that:

i.   encourages productivity,

ii.  rewards safe operators,

iii. delivers greater public confidence, and

iv. yet reduces compliance cost?
