The National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission to the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator’s (NHVR) Review of Livestock Mass, Dimension and Loading Arrangements.
Heavy vehicle regulation is one of the few supply chain productivity levers that is within the Government’s direct control, and remains a policy priority for the NFF. The NFF 2030 Roadmap – the strategic vision for growing Australian agriculture to a $100 billion industry by 2030 – sets the target that by 2030 Australia’s freight cost per tonne-kilometre will be competitive with major agricultural exporting nations. To achieve this target, we must identify and capture cost reduction opportunities which will facilitate supply chain efficiencies and increase productivity.
