Freight Hub

Freight is a critical component of the NSW economy. It is worth nearly $66 billion a year to the NSW economy. The economic growth and prosperity of NSW depends on the safe, efficient and reliable movement of goods.

The NSW Freight and Ports Plan 2018-2023 is a call to action for government and industry to collaborate on clear initiatives and targets to make the NSW freight task more efficient and safe so NSW can continue to move and grow.

The NSW Government plays a key role in the long-term planning, vision and management of the transport networks which NSW’s freight operators rely on. We also need to move goods with minimum impact on the environment and communities. Everyone in NSW relies on the goods moved on our roads and rail, and through our ports and airports. The sector that moves these goods contributes $66 billion to the State’s economy each year – allowing producers to get their goods to market, keeping business running and providing households with their everyday needs
