ALC 2012 estimates that every 1% increase in efficiency will save Australia around $1.5 billion. The problems are very complex, as asserted by Michael Pal, Fremantle Port Authority in 2011. The key issue has been the monopoly-based control of container movement and all port and road operators’ activities, which affect SMEs' productivity and resulting financial loss in Australia Ports. The project seeks to support national strategy on Port Management, addressing fundamental issues of port infrastructure development, freight networks, logistics networks and its impact on urban planning.
