National Location Registry launched to support Australian freight
iMOVE Australia is proud to support the launch of the newly-announced National Location Registry.
The Registry is a digital platform that provides detailed location information on pick-up and delivery points to authorised users. Further information on operating hours, weight and height restrictions for vehicles, entry points, driver amenities and safety requirements will also be included. It replaces a multitude of manual processes and will help prevent delays and failures. The registration process comes at no extra cost to businesses.
Ian Christensen, Managing Director of iMOVE said about the Registry, “the National Location Registry will play a pivotal role in providing more accurate and reliable location data in support of freight operations across the nation.
“The national freight task is increasing and the Registry will help improve the efficiency and the resilience of our supply chains. It is one of the ways in which better use of data will improve outcomes for our businesses and communities.”
The industry-led Registry initiative is supported by the Australian Government and managed by not-for-profit standards organisation, GS1 Australia. The National Location Registry is a key element of the Australian Government’s broader National Freight Data Hub project, a $16.5 million investment to make available a range of data to support the Australian freight industry.
