WARTA’s Freight division also provides representation through the Freight and Logistics Council as well as its Transport Operations Committee on matters relating to WA Ports including liaisons with Shipping Australia (SAL).

Port Carriers Group

WARTA has re-established the Port Carriers Group. This group provides a fantastic opportunity for Transport Operators to get directly involved in discussing transport issues and working together with other relevant parties to successfully achieve positive outcomes for the industry.

This is very timely given the involvement of many carriers in identifying issues and possible solutions related to trucking productivity and efficiency as part of the recent Fremantle Ports Truck Productivity Study. Progressing productivity and efficiency initiatives will need the input of all stakeholders, and this group will be extremely valuable in this regard.

Whilst this Working Group is noted as being for Transport Operators, other industry stakeholders are welcome to attend meetings and/or provide input. If you would like to attend, please contact WARTA.
