Focus on Freight - growing local communities

The freight industry contributes $66 billion to our state economy each year. NSW road freight volumes are projected to grow by 39 per cent between 2016 and 2036, from 288 million tonnes per annum in 2016 to 400 million tonnes per annum in 2036.

To best meet growing demand, improved road freight transport options need to be adopted. These include higher productivity vehicles that are safer, more productive and more sustainable.
