The ATA’s submission to the Inquiry into growing Australian Agriculture to $100 billion by 2030 highlights the importance of trucking to agriculture.
Recommendations put forward by the ATA include:
- prioritising improving access for High Productivity Freight Vehicles to incentivise the growth of Australian agriculture
- introducing independent regulation of landside port charges
- the Australian Government to implement a national fund to deliver a minimum service level standard on rural, regional and remote freight roads, and
- ensuring reforms to the Heavy Vehicle National Law improve the road access approvals system.
