Improving Road Transport for Primary Production

The Improving Road Transport for Primary Production project aimed to improve efficiency in South Australia's agricultural transport industry.

Building on the success and momentum of the first 90 Day Improving Road Transport for the Agriculture Industry Project, it aimed to identify any remaining issues to improve productivity such as route extensions and last mile access.

A second survey was conducted in 2017 to further identify any remaining issues to improve productivity such as route extensions and last mile access.

As a result of the project reforms to date, industry has estimated the benefits flowing to transport operators and primary producers to have more than doubled from the original estimate of $36 million in 2016 to now be at least $80 million, and is expected to rise.

The 90 day Improving Road Transport project is a partnership between Primary Producers SA, PIRSA and the Department of Transport, Planning and Infrastructure.
