Stakeholder Consultation Opportunity: Tasmanian Forestry Supply and Infrastructure

A consultation process is underway to identify challenges experienced by the Tasmanian forestry industry with regards to its supply chains and supporting infrastructure, the impact of recent national and global events, as well as the potential avenues for improvement.

The consultation is being led by the ELogistics Research Group at the University of Tasmania, who have been appointed by the Northern Tasmania Regional Forestry Hub to undertake an assessment of the key challenges and growth opportunities related to forestry supply chains and infrastructure.

The consultation process is being conducted in two stages; a survey followed by stakeholder consultation workshops held in Launceston and Burnie in August this year.

The survey contains 7 questions and takes 5 minutes to complete. The survey can be found here and is accessible until the 14th of July 2020.

This project supports the Commonwealth’s National Forest Industries Plan, Growing a Better Australia – A Billion Trees for Jobs and Growth. The information provided will support the development of policies and initiatives to grow the Tasmanian and Australian forestry industry.
