New ways of reducing freight cost should be to priority for Australia
Opinion on freight cost.
The manufacturing Industry has spent many years reducing cost in all aspects of its operations, except one which it has little control over. Freight cost is now the single biggest stumbling block to innovative designs that should be destined for markets far and wide, but freight has not moved forward. We made a big leap forward with containerisation, but innovation since has not followed? We need to find solutions to this major problem if we are to be a force in the world. I welcome your opinion.
