As the world’s population continues to expand and the demand for raw materials and finished goods grows exponentially, freight movement is set to increase at a similar rate. The ability to move resources and commodities efficiently and sustainably is a source of competitive advantage in the global economy and the demand for smart solutions for national and international supply chains is ever increasing.
Aurecon has been involved in the freight and logistics field for more than a decade.
We have invested in strengthening our team and capabilities to support this growing area, with a focus on applying transport planning and modelling techniques to the whole of the supply chain. In doing so, we utilise various systems and methodologies for measuring and analysing delays, impacts, congestion, road pricing and access policy to help process, map and identify conflicts in the supply chain.
We apply our skills, knowledge and expertise to improve efficiency and productivity, lower operating costs, reduce packaging, and find alternative transportation modes in order to reduce environmental waste and minimise carbon footprints.
We provide transport network modelling for freight movement and locality and route optimisation services. In addition, we are able to provide detailed facility design services, transport safety planning and port and terminal operation. Aurecon advises freight operators on each component of the supply chain, including warehousing and distribution and the modes of transportation that support this.
Our clients in this market include transport companies, government agencies, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, suppliers of raw materials, and financiers.
