TLI Connect

The TLI (Transport and Logistics Industry) Connect team within the department assists employers through government and industry partnerships, to retain existing employees, attract new employees and identify skilling opportunities.

TLI Connect is guided by the Transport and Logistics Workforce Advisory Committee (TLWAC), a group of representatives from industry associations, industry organisations and the department.

The transport and logistics industry is a key enabler to the growth of Queensland’s economy. It supports the movement of people and freight, underpinning the state’s economic growth.

We recognise that working with, listening to and supporting people in industry is vital, as an available, highly-skilled workforce is essential to deliver on Queensland’s transport potential.
