Transport is the lifeblood of a modern economy

Without movement of goods, commerce is severely limited, employment decreases, and our economy falters.

In a country as big as Australia, transport is essential to cover vast distances, and logistics is crucial in maintaining efficiency and organisation. Transport is the lifeblood of our nation, so it’s important to have laws and regulations that closely monitor these operations. If not, the economy may grind to a halt.
