Results achieved by the Port Botany Landside Improvement Strategy (PBLIS) will see the program continue through Transport for New South Wales, the organisation responsible for the state's transport services.

"PBLIS has been instrumental in both supporting smarter road freight movements and working with the rail operators and network providers to improve freight co-ordination in the port rail supply chain. We look forward to this work continuing through Transport for New South Wales and building on the program's successes more widely in the NSW freight network," says Minister for Roads and Ports Duncan Gay.

Introduced by Sydney Ports Corporation in 2011, PBLIS has dramatically improved freight efficiency in and around Port Botany, delivering 30% faster truck turnaround times and saving millions of dollars each year through increased equipment utilisation and reduced demurrage costs.

Prior to its implementation, PBLIS was expected to deliver in its first 10 years a net present value (NPV) benefit to New South Wales and industry of $21.2 million. After an independent review in 2012 of its first year of operation, the PBLIS NPV increased by over $33 million to $54.7 million.

The on-time performance of trucks arriving at Port Botany has also increased from 72% before PBLIS to 93% in March 2013.
