iMOVE signed its latest project today, with lead participant the Government of Australia's Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities (DIRDC). The Freight Data Requirements Study project is looking to identify and articulate the data requirements of the freight and supply chain sector, a step toward making Australia a world-leader in this area.
iMOVE and its partners in this project are undertaking it to address aspects of improvements the freight and logistics industry can make, to inform the Federal Government's National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy, acting on the recommendations in the industry-led Inquiry into National Freight and Supply Chain Priorities.
The objectives of the project are:
The other crucial component of this study is to understand the circumstances under which companies would be prepared to share data. With a fair an open approach to data sharing, there is a higher degree of success in achieving optimal visibility in the supply chain. iMOVE covers just how crucial this in our article, Where's my box? The case for improved supply chain visibility. Now!
The more consultation and buy-in we have from the industry on this, the more chance we have of seeing Australia as possessing the most efficient, most visible, supply chain in the world.
