Truck Productivity Study 2014

The Truck Productivity Study is an important piece of work aimed at developing an agreed approach with the industry to improving road transport efficiency, and was undertaken by Fremantle Ports with the Freight Logistics Council of WA and the Western Australian Port Operations Task Force.

The study involved detailed data analysis to investigate the current industry structure, case study interviews with carriers, industry workshops and a transport operator survey to gather both qualitative and quantitative data on current operating patterns and factors influencing productivity and efficiency. Industry participation and involvement in this process was high. The study identifies priority initiatives that will be progressed further in the short and medium term.

 Container Movement Study 2012

This study looked at the landside logistics of container movement, that is, where imported containers go, where exported containers come from, how they are transported to and from the port, and how they are handled. The work was undertaken by Fremantle Ports, with assistance from the WA Department of Transport, Main Roads WA and the Freight and Logistics Council of Western Australia. It updates information from the March 2004 Origin and Destination Study. The study provides up-to-date information on the transport, storage and distribution of full import and export containers as well as the movement of empty containers. The findings will assist in improving industry planning and understanding.
