The Board of the Australian Logistics Council (ALC) today announced Philip Davies as its new Chair.
With over 25 years experience in policy development both internationally and in Australia, Davies most recently held the position of Chief Executive Officer of Infrastructure Australia (IA) where he was an advisor to the Federal Government on maximising economic benefits for investments in key infrastructure projects.
These included Inland Rail, the Moorebank Intermodal Terminal in NSW, the Western Sydney Airport and the Port Botany Rail Duplication.
Davies also recommended initiatives from the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy be undertaken as part of the Infrastructure Audit which IA issued under his leadership in 2015.
In an issued statement the ALC said Davies had a long record of advocacy on policy issues of major importance to the freight logistics industry such as adopting a nationally consistent approach to corridor protection, undertaking road pricing reform and the development of an evidence-based approach on infrastructure planning and population matters.
“Philip Davies’s appointment as Chair of ALC will further strengthen ALC’s advocacy activities, and help ensure that governments at all levels give higher priority to enhanced supply chain efficiency and safety in their policy-making and infrastructure investment decisions,” said the ALC.
