Purpose

Who moves what where seeks to better inform future planning and policy development by filling information gaps about the market structure of transport operators – road and rail, passenger and freight.

Better information will allow the NTC and policy makers around Australia, to design and implement reforms to improve the productivity, safety and environmental performance of Australia’s transport systems.

Next steps

The NTC released a discussion paper in January 2017 with our proposed recommendations to address current information gaps.

The NTC will continue to work with stakeholders to identify opportunities to standardise and improve information gathering, storage, sharing and analysis across Australia. We will put our recommendations to ministers in November this year.

Background

The transport and logistics industry is one of the key drivers of the Australian economy. However, there is a lack of strategic, comprehensive information about passenger and freight movements on road and rail in Australia.

Recognising that without complete and comparable information about passenger and freight movements on road and rail government and industry cannot get the best planning and reform outcomes, the Transport and Infrastructure Council endorsed the business case for the Who moves what where project on 6 November 2015.
