Regional Development Australia (RDA) Orana is pleased to announce that international consultancy firm, Urbis Pty Ltd, has been successful in securing the contracts to undertake two related studies for the Orana region: a study into the feasibility of establishing an international air freight facility, and a study into the capability of the freight and logistics systems in the region.
The public tenders were advertised in March and April, and attracted a strong field of applicants.
Urbis Pty Ltd met with key government and industry stakeholders in Dubbo recently to gain an overview of the Region’s current status. This will be followed by a comprehensive analysis of the capacity and condition of the region’s freight and logistics systems, and investigation into the opportunities for export into emerging Asian and other international markets.
Stakeholders will be invited to contribute at various points throughout the project; identified key stakeholders will be invited to participate in interviews and/or workshops, and an online forum has been established on RDA Orana’s website to allow all interested parties to participate (please click here to go to the survey).
