Tasmanian Freight Forum 2019

The Tasmanian Logistics Committee will be partnering once again with the Australian Peak Shippers Group (APSA) and the Freight Trade Allegiance (FTA) to host the 2019 Tasmanian Freight and Logistics Forum at UTAS/AMC Launceston on the 26th of June 2019.

In its third year, this event hosted over 150 industry representatives at the last forum (including shippers, shipping lines, transport companies, port operators, students and Government officials). This year the event will have the Premier of Tasmania, the Honourable Will Hodgman providing a key note address.

On the back of the recently released trade strategy for the State, and with the Premier also being the Minister for Trade – the subject of growth in the Tasmanian economy and freight and logistics has never been more entwined.

This year’s forum has been designed to address the future with such topics as Infrastructure and Growth, Biosecurity, Environmental and Sustainability and Coastal Shipping and Bass Strait trade. Speakers include the Director of ports policy from the ACCC, CEO’s from Port of Melbourne and Tas Ports, General Manager of Biosecurity Tasmania, COO of ANL container Line, Toll Tasmania and Searoad senior management as well as many other respective professionals from specific fields that can provide accurate and up to date thinking on what are the challenges and opportunities for Tasmanian shippers going into 2020.
