Freight movements are essential to businesses and our economy. The ability for port users to have competitive access and pricing to the Port of Brisbane and to services is critical for the State's competitiveness and industrial growth. The port is a major node in one of Australia's most significant supply chains and handles the vast majority of Queensland’s container imports and exports.
Within the SEQ context there are some key factors to consider, among other things:
Long-life legacy rail infrastructure and terminals
Complex topographical and land-use patterns
Industrial zones distant from the maritime distribution hubs and a complex logistics ecosystem
The needs of the long-term industrial land strategy for SEQ
This paper seeks to provide insights and present a holistic view of the issues and what lessons can be learnt from Sydney to guide the planning for this crucial task.
