Crumlin Attacks ALC Perceptions On Shipping Reform As Irrational

In a hard hitting speech at the Australian Logistics Council Forum today, National Secretary Paddy Crumlin described opposition to the government's shipping reform package as " ill informed, economically illiterate, commercially irrational and reactionary".

"These reforms are not revolutionary - they are modest and responsible - they are evolutionary, with lots of transitional flexibility to boot," he said. 

"On any objective analysis, they do no more than restore fairness and transparency to the way shipping participates in the domestic freight market."
