NTC review to look at productivity in rail freight network
The National Transport Commission (NTC) will look at productivity in rail freight as part of a strategic review into the sector.
Improving rail productivity was a key priority identified through industry consultation for the NTC strategic plan. Federal and state transport ministers are also looking at rail through their National Transport Policy Framework.
“If Australia is to move people and freight safely and efficiently as the transport task grows, the performance of all transport modes must be optimised,” says the NTC’s General Manager of Economics and Productivity, Meena Naidu.
