The WA Government Shipping and Supply Chain Taskforce requested comment on their scope. The Taskforce will invite stakeholder comment on a discussion paper to be released in the fourth quarter of 2022. The Taskforce will examine:
1 The potential for domestic long-distance freight to be carried by coastal shipping between WA and eastern states
2 Co-operation in the development of a national strategic shipping fleet
3 The development of local WA training facilities and maritime career pathways
4 Opportunities to develop multi-modal responsiveness to supply chain disruption, including freight on interstate routes and also to remote WA regions
5 Opportunities to improve supply chain co-ordination and service quality at WA ports.
