SA Freight Snapshot
Snapshot of South Australia's Freight Supply Chain
Road freight represents over 83% of domestic freight in South Australia, while rail freight accounts for less than 6%.
South Australia's merchandise exports heavily rely on industries such as food, agriculture, and resources, which require efficient freight supply chains and routes to reach international markets.
The state's road network, particularly in regional areas, faces challenges with poor conditions that limit efficiency and productivity.
South Australia has 10 operational ports, with sufficient capacity within the existing ports to manage the forecast export and import tasks.
Adelaide's metropolitan area requires an efficient freight network to avoid congestion and ensure timely deliveries.
Optimisation of air freight capacity through increased connections and added flexibility is crucial for transporting high-value South Australian produce to international markets.
Identifying key economic corridors and planning interventions to create more efficient supply chains by addressing pinch points and road upgrades is essential.
Government involvement is important in facilitating multi-user proposals that contribute to economic growth and improving landside access to ports.
