Release of New Zealand freight and supply chain strategy
The Minister of Transport today released the Aotearoa New Zealand Freight and Supply Chain Strategy. The strategy provides long-term strategic direction for New Zealand’s freight and supply chain system to be underpinned by zero emissions, freight transport, resilient to disruptions, and highly productive.
18th of August
The strategy outlines actions over three time-horizons:
30-year horizon: a set of enduring principles guiding how the government and sector stakeholders should approach the freight and supply chains system
10-year horizon: the strategic goals to guide what changes have to happen over the next decade
three-year horizon: a collaborative approach to sequencing implementation in the first three years, which identifies initial priorities to focus on to meet the strategic goals.
The strategy was informed by industry engagement along with feedback from broader public consultation on an issues paper.
The next steps are to implement the actions in the strategy, and develop a second action plan which is expected to be released in 2024.
