About Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council
The Transport and Logistics sector which covers Road Transport, Rail, Warehouse & Storage, Maritime and Aviation in Australia employs an estimated 500,000 individuals. The sector contributes $90 Billion to the Australian economy annually (14.8% of GDP). Notwithstanding a number of large national transport organisations the road transport sector is dominated by small to medium sized businesses, 65% with fewer than 100 employees. In terms of future growth in the sector the Australian Bureau of Transport and Regional Economics (BTRE) anticipate the movement of bulk freight to increase 1.6 times over the next 20 years, interstate bulk freight to double in that time and the number of containers through Australian ports to triple.

Key challenges
Some Key challenges affecting workforce development, training and business growth in the industry include: A shrinking local labor pool Challenges around employee attraction and retention in some sectors An older than average workforce with high numbers set to retire over the next decade Increasing pressures on existing transport infrastructure Growing demands on freight to movement to meet the needs of the supply chain.
