A SERIES of events aimed at boosting compliance in the movement of goods across the Australian border began last week in Sydney.

The Freight and Trade Alliance began its series of CPD & CBC – Border and Biosecurity Compliance Program events in Sydney on 9 April, with 200 delegates for the full day’s proceedings.


The next in the FTA series of compliance training events is set for the Brisbane Airport Conference Centre on 2 May and then in Melbourne on 19 June at Hyatt Place in Essendon Fields.
