Truckies and businesses will be able to get Aussie produce from gate to plate more efficiently thanks to the launch of the new National Location Registry.
This new digital tool provides a one-stop shop of pick-up and delivery location information to support truckies to get goods to businesses and consumers. This includes operating hours, weight and height restrictions for vehicles, entry points, driver amenities and safety requirements for each site.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Barnaby Joyce said the National Location Registry will make it easier and quicker for freight operators to pick-up and deliver goods and take some of the stress out of their day-to-day work.
“Every Australian, everywhere, every day relies on freight. The National Location Registry will benefit us all by backing a more efficient supply chain for our businesses and truckies,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.
“This will make life easier for the more than 50,000 small businesses involved in Australia’s road freight sector. These businesses can now encourage location owners to list their pick-up spots and other important information on this one Registry, saving time and effort.”
