  • The industry promotes the use of transport options that are safe, efficient and productive
  • The industry requires integrated transport networks that consist of coordinated hubs that allow for the efficient movement of freight by road, rail, air and sea
  • Charging regimes must be consistent, transparent and equitable. There must not be any cross-subsidisation between modes or types of transport
  • Transportation laws and regulations must be nationally consistent and the national regulator, which is funded by industry, must be accountable to industry and deliver service standards that are in line with industry’s expectations
