Let’s explore the numbers underpinning Australia’s bustling trade landscape. From air and sea to road freight, each mode of transportation carries its weight in contributing to the nation’s economic prosperity.
Although characterised by lower volume, airfreight holds substantial value in Australia’s trade dynamics. Recent years have witnessed approximately 1.2 million metric tons of goods with a trade value of around 110 billion Australian dollars being transported via air. The domestic air freight sector is projected to experience a growth of 17 per cent between 2018 and 2040, further highlighting the significance of this mode of transportation.
Australia’s ports are bustling hubs of activity, handling both coastal and international freight. Notably, coastal shipping freight accounts for 6.3 per cent of the total volume, while international freight constitutes the lion’s share of 103.8/1,653.2 million tons. This underscores the substantial role played by ships in the freight industry, as they are estimated to transport an overwhelming majority of goods, approximately 80 per cent, highlighting their pivotal contribution to the logistics network.
The backbone of Australia’s freight industry lies in its road transport. Projections indicate a remarkable 56 per cent growth in road freight volumes between 2018 and 2040, underlining the indispensable nature of this mode of transportation.
