Grain supply chains are often highly complex, with an estimated 111,000 unique origin to destination paths and significant distances between production and final markets. Given this complexity, transport costs typically account for 30-35% of total delivered costs of grain to port, however improved heavy vehicle access has the potential to substantially reduce logistics costs and ensure the efficient movement of grain.

Indeed, in a 2022 survey of GrainGrowers members, 60% of growers believe improved grain freight routes will have a positive impact to their farm’s sustainability and profitability.

GrainGrowers strongly supports the development of a framework as a positive first step, ensuring their widespread application and practical uptake will be critical for improving road access and measuring their effectiveness.
