Globally, the transport and logistics sector is grappling with consolidation, surplus capacity, access to capital, pressures on profitability, complex information technology requirements and ever-increasing government regulation.
In Australia, significant issues include port access, the emergence of low-cost air carriers in the region, road and rail infrastructure and an increased blurring of the public and private transport sectors.
