Former Australian Rail Track Corporation managing director John Fullerton has been appointed chairman of the new Freight Industry Reference Panel.

The panel will provide industry with “a clear line of sight” on implementing the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy, and it will report to Transport and Infrastructure Ministers annually.

It will also elicit more actions from all levels of government and industry to ensure best practice and better outcomes as they work together to lift national freight network performance.

The other panel members are: Nicole Lockwood, Sophie Finemore, Peter Garske, and Brett Charlton.
