Supporting the shift from road to rail
MIC has a strong interest in supporting the mode shift from road to rail, to ensure the precinct delivers the expected financial return to the Commonwealth and achieves the Commonwealth’s policy objectives for the terminal. During the year, MIC continued to encourage a mode shift through advocacy, promoting rail’s competitiveness for freight transport. This included:
- supporting improvements at the portrail interface and of the rail link between Moorebank and Port Botany, performance standards across the rail freight lines, and an end-to-end focus by individual participants;
- promoting the non-discriminatory nature of access to the Moorebank Logistics Park to industry for potential access seekers and customers; and
- assisting in the development of the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy, with a particular interest in a coordinated network of interstate and regional intermodal terminals.
