INDUSTRY body the Australian Logistics Council (ALC) has announced Linfox Logistics has re-joined the Council as a corporate member for 2018.
“After regular discussions over many months, it is a particular pleasure to welcome Linfox back to ALC membership to progress our shared objectives surrounding supply chain efficiency and safety,” said ALC managing director, Michael Kilgariff, who recently met with new Linfox Logistics chief executive Mark Mazurek.
“These include advancing telematics in heavy vehicles and pursuing national operator standards to improve industry safety, as well as working to enhance our freight networks through better roads and other critical freight transport infrastructure.”
Mr Kilgariff said both the ALC and Linfox had long advocated the use of telematic devices that captured data relating to speed, driver fatigue and vehicle load limits in heavy vehicles.
“The freight logistics industry stands its best chance of achieving meaningful policy reform when it speaks with a clear voice that articulates the industry’s view,” he said.
“Having Linfox as part of ALC and Mark Mazurek as a member of ALC Council will strengthen that voice enormously.”
