AUSTRALASIAN TRANSPORT NEWS | GPA wants freight costs lowered


Grains Producers Australia (GPA) says recent economic modelling by the CSIRO raises expectations for grain producers about the need to lower freight transport costs and boost farm sustainability.


The CSIRO report suggests the Inland Rail could cut freight transport costs by up to $213 million a year, meaning there would be a $48.87 per tonne saving for cropping according to the GPA.
