On 1 April, the Australian Government announced measures to help secure freight access for Australian agriculture and fisheries exporters.

The new $110M International Freight Assistance Mechanism will assist Australia’s agricultural and fisheries sector by helping them export their high-quality produce into key overseas markets, with return flights bringing back vital medical supplies, medicines and equipment.

These are testing times, but 14 years down the track—we’ve seen similar hard times, such as the GFC in 2008-2012, and from our experience, now is not the time to hang back. Now, more than ever, projects and work like yours is what keeps Australia moving. So it's time to take advantage of these subsidies, buy the right machinery, and dig deep.
