The Victorian Freight and Logistics Council (VFLC) has begun a study into the airfreight supply chain in Victoria.

Stage one of the project was structured to allow direct contributions from industry participants, from which five main areas of concern emerged: inadequate awareness, education and training; a lack of airfreight capacity out of Victoria; under-developed IT systems, data capture and exchange; less-than-optimal terminal infrastructure; and mismatched operating hours unable to meet 24/7 trends.

These findings will form the basis for Stage two of the study - the development of solutions to remove or reduce the impacts of the identified impediments. The process will be an extension of the successful Stage one process and will encourage industry participation.

It will engage members from the Victorian Airfreight Working Group (VAWG) and industry experts to ensure practical options are put before the industry at the industry workshops in April.

All parties in the airfreight supply chain have stakes in this project and their input is being sought. These include:

* Shippers - Importers/Exporters/Domestic
* Airlines
* Transport Operators
* Freight Forwarders
* Custom Brokers
* Warehouse and DC operators
* Regulatory Bodies
* Peak Industry Bodies and Airfreight Industry Consultants
* Unions
* Related Victorian Government agencies
* Cargo Terminal Operators
* Airport Operators
* Airfreight Industry Technology Services Providers

Anyone interested in participating in Stage two of the project and accessing copies of the Stage one report should call the council on (03) 8688 1830.
