Rail Freight Alliance Mission
To advocate for:
- Rail standardisation of all key rail lines in Victoria
- Upgrading and connecting to a National Rail Freight Network
- A competitive, independent and open access rail freight system
- Seamless freight logistics that will facilitate efficient rail freight movement
The Rail Freight Alliance is made up of Victorian rural, and regional and metropolitan Local Government Councils.
The Rail Freight Alliance represents the Local Government Sector in Victoria and adjoining States in freight logistics interests connecting Victoria nationally and internationally.
The Alliance was first formed in 1997 due to growing frustration with the lack of rail connectivity both within Victoria and with the neighbouring States and the lack of investment in Victoria’s antiquated 19th century rail freight system.
