What is the Australian Logistics Council?

The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) represents the major Australian logistics supply chain customers, providers, infrastructure owners and suppliers. Its members span the entire supply chain, incorporating road, rail, sea, air, sea ports and intermodal ports. ALC is the only body that represents Australia’s exporters and importers across the end to end supply chain from producer to consumer.

What size is ALC’s fleet or the number of staff who generate your transport task?

N/A – However, our membership spans the entire supply chain, incorporating road, rail, sea, air, marine and intermodal ports. The logistics industry employs more than a million workers in Australia.

What does road safety mean ALC?

Safety is universally nominated by the entire ALC membership as the issue of single greatest importance in our industry. It is not surprising then that the ALC Safety Committee includes 30 of the nation’s top safety experts. A safe, productive and efficient freight logistics industry is important to all Australians. It supports all other sectors of the economy including our retail, manufacturing, mining, energy, communications and construction sectors.
