As Victoria’s population grows, so will our freight needs. But how do we make sure that goods are moved efficiently, and what will emerging technologies mean for the freight industry?
Hear from industry experts about what the future holds for freight planning in Victoria.

Dorian Notman, Senior Lecturer, RMIT University
Dorian is a Senior Lecturer in Aviation Logistics and Supply at RMIT University and has researched, taught and consulted in logistics and transportation for more than 25 years in the UK, Denmark and Australia. He firmly believes that a successful national economy requires a thriving international trade in high value products that utilises the speed and accuracy of delivery that air cargo operations provide. Similarly, the rise of e-commerce is driving the need for integrated, highly robust and efficient cross border distribution systems that will demand significant adaptation in the global transportation model. The impact of these changes in demand will drive new sources of supply and require new models of delivery – something that provides both significant opportunities and risks for the Australian economy.
