The trucking industry acknowledges that if it is to keep pace with the growing transport task it needs to retain its existing skilled workforce and recruit new people.
The strong commitment to safety, professionalism and the health and well-being of drivers continues to enhance the profile of the industry.
The TLI Connect team at the Department of Transport and Main Roads assists employers through Government and Industry partnerships, to develop systems and processes to retain existing staff, attract new employees and identify skilling opportunities.
TLI Connect is led by the Transport and Logistics Workforce Advisory Committee (TLWAC). The committee comprises representatives from industry associations (including QTA Ltd), industry organisations and Transport and Main Roads.
TLI Connect’s work is critical as the industry experiences rapid growth and the challenges of securing a sustainable workforce in an environment of continuing labour and skills shortages. They recognise that working with, listening to and supporting people in industry is vital, and an available, highly skilled workforce is essential to deliver on our transport task.
