The draft Sydney Airport Master Plan contains a number of proposals that have the potential to improve freight efficiency in and around the airport, according to the Australian Logistics Council.“ALC welcomes Sydney Airport’s renewed focus on freight in its Master Plan and commends it for taking a proactive approach to meet rising demand over the coming decades,” said Michael Kilgariff, ALC managing director. 

“According to the NSW Government, freight at Australia’s busiest airport is expected to increase from approximately 650,000 tonnes today to around 1.5 million tonnes by 2035. These figures underscore the need for a long term planning framework that has at its core a recognition that freight is a core part of business at Sydney Airport.

“The Master Plan takes a number of important steps towards elevating the needs of freight on the airport, including its proposal to provide for improved positions for freight services and facilities in the airport precinct. Similarly, the Airport’s proposal to realign a number of major road links within the precinct has the potential to ease congestion which is a critical step towards improving the efficiency of the air cargo supply chain,” he said.
