National Freight Data Hub

National Freight Data Hub


Every Australian, everywhere, every day relies on freight. That’s why we need high quality, timely and easily accessible data to make sure the freight sector is as efficient, safe, productive and resilient as possible.

In May 2021, the Australian Government committed $16.5 million over four years to establish the National Freight Data Hub (“the Hub”). This built on the $5.2 million provided in 2019-20 to settle the design of the Hub.

National Freight Data Hub website

The Hub website allows users to easily access publicly available datasets and interact with maps and graphs to explore trends and patterns in existing freight data all in one location, demonstrating the positive ways freight data can be used to benefit government, industry and local communities.

The website includes:

  • Projects: Explore the current projects being undertaken as part of the Hub to improve the collection, quality and publication of freight data.
  • Freight data catalogue: Find data using a curated and searchable national freight data catalogue for Australia. 
  • Interactives: See interactive visualisations to identify trends and patterns.
  • Updates & Insights: Discover insights from freight data analysis.
