International Freight Assistance Mechanism - Extension

ClosedProgram Closed: 30th of June 2022 - 11:30 pm Run By: Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) Further Information: https://www.austrade.gov.au/news/news/international-freight-assistance-mechanism

The International Freight Assistance Mechanism has been extended by the Australian Government. The program provides support by reducing the impact of COVID-19 on international supply chains and helps businesses get their products distributed to international customers.

This program maintains global air connections and protects hard-fought market share while targeting support where it is needed most and buying Australian businesses time to align their operating models to ‘new-look’ supply chains.

The program team partners with State and Territory colleagues, including those offshore, in working with business and industry bodies to keep global air links open. It provides logistical and administrative support for international freight movements by aggregating cargo loads, negotiating with airlines and dealing with partner governments to facilitate clearances and improve transparency of freight costs during the pandemic.

By keeping key airfreight routes open, the program is providing Australian businesses disproportionately affected by COVID-19 time to adapt their business models, adjust to a new and tougher trading environment and preserve jobs.
