The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) is the peak industry body for Australia’s freight and logistics industry, and the leader in the national debate on the steps needed to boost supply chain efficiency and safety. ALC Managing Director Michael Kilgariff as a Keynote Speaker at the 3rd Australian Regional Development Conference will be speaking on; ‘Getting the Supply Chain Right’.
The ALC represents the major and national companies participating in the Australian freight logistics supply chain industry.
National Freight Task
Mr Kilgariff will discuss the development of a National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy, which is needed to underpin future actions and reforms across the logistics industry. Another priority area is the roll-out of the Inland Rail Project. Connecting Brisbane and Melbourne, critical to many regional areas throughout Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, Michael will discuss how investments in key ‘last mile’ road projects, particularly in regional Australia, are critical to boosting economic growth and employment across our regions.
Michael is a strong advocate for more productive supply chains which he argues are critical to meeting a national freight task which is expected to increase significantly over the coming decades. He holds a degree in Economics from the Australian National University, and is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors’ diploma and advanced diploma courses.
