Austrade’s Export Supply Chain Service (ESCS) is a new initiative by the Australian Government to coordinate insights, helping industry and stakeholders navigate supply chain issues while connectivity to international markets remains volatile, and capacity diminished and expensive.
ESCS will be hosting a virtual Industry Briefing at 9.30am (AWST) on Wednesday 21 September 2022. Attendees are invited to hear the latest updates on global supply chains from ESCS’s Principal, Michael Byrne. Prior to ESCS, he established the International Freight Assistance Mechanism (IFAM), and as International Freight Coordinator General, led a team ensuring Australia’s air freight services for perishable and critical goods were maintained through COVID.
With previous roles as Managing Director, Chief Operating Officer and Director of Toll Holdings, Chief Executive Officer of Coates Hire, Linfox and Westgate Holdings, and Non-Executive Director of Australia Post, Mr Byrne's career spans some of the biggest logistics companies in the world. He has lent his commercial expertise to the government by serving on numerous boards advising on transportation, infrastructure, food security and security matters.
He currently serves on the New South Wales Ports, Sydney Airport and Ausgrid Boards, is a council member on the New South Wales Freight Advisory Council, and a Senate member for the University of WA.
