The Logistics Association of Australia Ltd (LAA) has joined forces with advocacy group Freight and Trade Alliance (FTA).

LAA’s president Simon Vincent believes the alliance will, for the first time, provide importers with a much-needed ‘respected voice’ and a central point to drive supply chain efficiencies.

Mr Vincent pointed to increasing border security requirements, evolving global trade agreements, variations in international shipping practices, and numerous domestic landside logistics issues requiring ongoing reform with the need for a considered approach in representation to government and various sectors of commerce.

“In this contemporary environment, it is essential that advocacy is representative of the interests of the supply chain industry, and addresses topics that can make a real difference to business results. Hence, our alliance with FTA brings together the collective strength of our memberships and expertise to deliver a voice that can be trusted to drive improved operational outcomes,” Mr Vincent said

Paul Zalai, founder and director of Freight and Trade Alliance said the partnership with the LAA will complement existing arrangements with other peak bodies, such as the Australian Retail Association, Export Council of Australia, and the Australian Federation of International Forwarders

“We are excited to partner Australia’s leading supply chain management and retail associations as a part of our overall mission to influence positive freight and trade operational reforms,” Mr Zalai said.
