    We are pleased to announce that Josh Wilson MP, Federal Labor Member for Fremantle will be giving the Opening Address at the AIMS 2017 Conference on Friday 8th September 2017.

    Josh grew up in Freo and for more than a decade has made a significant contribution through public and community service.

    As a representative of the Fremantle electorate, Josh is focused on protecting and enhancing the things we share, such as universal healthcare, high-quality education, public amenity and infrastructure (like the NBN, Freo Port, and public transport), and our environment, both land and sea. He believes that inclusive prosperity will require a focus on reducing inequality and creating jobs at a time when unregulated economic transition puts social and economic inclusion at great risk.

    Uber Technologies, the ride-sharing company, has publicly launched an app to allow shippers and truckers to arrange freight transportation using their smartphones.

    Uber Freight matches trucking companies with loads to haul and claims that several hours and multiple phone calls can now be achieved with the touch of a button.

    Vetted users download the app, search for a load, and tap to book it.

    Uber has also built a team of industry experts, leading technologists, and truck drivers to help it “push the industry forward and level the playing field for trucking companies”.

    Uber stated: “We send a rate confirmation within seconds, eliminating a common anxiety in trucking about whether or not the load is really confirmed.

    “We fundamentally believe that by focusing on drivers’ pain points we can solve the industry’s biggest challenges.”

    Frank Kho, Vice President, Market Intelligence, Strategy and Development at Kalmar, recently pointed to parcel logistics being the first shipping sector to undergo uberisation due to delivery companies “struggling to find enough trucks and drivers to move all of their parcels at peak periods in urban areas”.
