Australia’s defence strategists believe the Australian Defence Force needs to be able to sustain prolonged operations in North-West Australia – operations that require the support of the trucking industry.
This session will discuss the strategic role the trucking industry needs to play as well as:
- The integrated defence and freight vision for northern Australia
- Why WA sees defence threats differently to the eastern states
- The potential for the road transport industry to assist the Pilbara Regiment as a regional force surveillance unit in northern WA, and
- The potential for collaboration to address driver shortages in both defence and civilian transport
