Transport and Logistics

The Transport and Logistics industry across Federal and State Government and Local Councils in Australia has an estimated annual revenue of $96.65 billion, adding $39.95 billion to the Australian economy in 2017 (according to Australian Industry Standards 2018). Transport industries are responsible for moving freight (and passengers) by air, road, rail and water. Logistics, sometimes referred to as the ‘supply chain’, is about the systems in place to make this movement possible. The industry employs nearly half a million people across its major sub-sectors, which include

  • Logistics and Warehousing: Australia’s rapidly expanding supply chain moves millions of goods around the country and offers many fulfilling careers that are available in the logistics and warehousing sector. Employers are seeking dynamic and energetic people who are willing to learn and embrace technology. Logistics is all about getting products to people in a professional and timely manner.
  • Aviation: Offering new challenges every day, a career in the aviation sector can take you across the country and around the world. In this industry, you will be responsible for delivering customers an experience, not just a mode of transport. A role in aviation could include anything from commanding or maintaining aircraft, to attending to passengers in the air or on the ground in a fast-paced airport.
  • Ports: With the number of containers crossing the nation’s ports set to increase dramatically, there will continue to be demand for responsible people to operate the latest state-of-the-art machinery, coordinate the movement of millions of dollars’ worth of freight, and the piloting of vessels into and out of harbours. There are many diverse job and career opportunities on offer within Australia’s ports.
  • Road Transport: Not just about driving trucks, road transport incorporates bus and coach operations, and there are interesting career pathways for people with a variety of educational and work backgrounds. With Australia’s growth in freight and passenger movement set to explode, there are many chances to work in one of Australia’s fastest growing and innovative sectors.
  • Maritime: From working on a small fishing or chartered boat to navigating the open seas, a career in maritime is the ideal role for people with a passion for boats and the water. With the increase in shipping trade activities globally and a high demand for skills, the prospects in the maritime sector are exciting and unique.
  • Rail: Australia’s rail sector is expanding at a rapid rate and offers a diverse range of careers from customer service, or those in which you can use your technical and professional skills to move freight, build and maintain tracks, and organise the movement of thousands of people every day.
