Every month across Australia’s capital city ports
and surrounds, thousands of transport companies, importers &
exporters, stevedores, intermodal terminals, freight forwarders
and others handle Australia’s containerised freight task.
Container Transport Alliance Australia (CTAA) is strong Alliance of leading businesses engaged in the container transport logistics industry. CTAA Alliance companies account for the majority of containerised freight handled in capital city ports in Australia.
Container transport is a tough but vital part of Australia’s economy. All businesses in the sector face strategic and operational challenges, including:
- Improving operational relationships between transport operators, stevedores, shipping lines, container parks, freight forwarders, and importers / exporters
- Dealing with an increasingly more stringent regulatory environment
- Implementing better health & safety compliance regimes
- Adapting to rapid changes in technology
- Countering rising costs and a squeeze on margins
- Addressing inadequate infrastructure
- Tackling impediments to greater productivity
- Addressing people challenges, including an ageing workforce and the need for skills improvements
CTAA provides advocacy, business support, and direct consulting to companies and government agencies to address these challenges, collectively and individually.
“We have the passion and expertise to help the container logistics chain achieve better productivity, safety, compliance, technology and people development. Where necessary, we draw companies together to tackle the challenges collectively. Equally though, we work with companies to address their individual needs.”
