About the conference:
Q-666-PBP-ROW-1470Now in its 16th Year, AusIntermodal remains the premier conference for Australia’s freight industry. The Australasian Railway Association and Lloyd’s List Australia are proud to partner with us on this event which will be held on the 8th and 9th September at the Pullman Hotel in Brisbane.

You can look forward to two days of discussion on intermodal freight transportation in Australia. The program will highlight some of the critical issues facing industry such as supply chain efficiency and automation, investing in freight on rail, border security, the development of inland ports and the chain of responsibility. The 2 day conference will see senior executives in rail, ports, trucking and infrastructure from around the nation come together to discuss industry updates and key project learnings. This is a networking opportunity not to be missed!
