The latest forecasts for 2015 show road freight outperforming the other two modes at 3. 1 % growth, compared to rail freight's 2. 9 % growth and air freight's 1. 6 %, a change from previous expectations. Road will more than double rail freight in terms of tonnes handled, whi le air freight remains at a far lower figure. Significant falls in the main key trade indicators for exports and imports will occur in 201 5 with total imports down -15.81% and exports down -13.57%.

Economic growth in the country is projected to dip to 2.25% in 2015 but pick up to nearly 3% in 2016 as consumer confidence grows both nationally and globally. As the economy grows, government investment decisions will impact on the direction of the freight industry. Key factors driving the growth of the freight industry in Australia are likely to include growing demand from Asia and particularly in the agrifood sector, local transport needs fuelled by internet commerce and increased inbound container movement.

Predicted trade figures in Australia suggest flat levels of real growth of both imports and exports in the years to 2019. That said, some key trade exports including agriculture, ores and metals, iron and steel, manufactured goods and fuels are predicted to see a significant rebound in 2018/2019 as total trade growth rises from -14.71% in 2015 to 3.94% in 2019.
