Abstract

The integration of 'logistics thinking of fIrms' in long-term transport policymaking has become
an important means for supporting industries. Research projects in this fIeld have focused on
understanding logistics patterns and trends of various industries in order to identify their needs in
terms of logistics requirements. None of these projects, however, have focused on innovative
fIrms despite their higher importance to economic growth. This paper presents a research project
that aims to acquire a better understanding of logistics behaviour of innovative fIrms, and to
investigate the implications of innovative economic activities for transport logistics requirements
in the small-scale economy of Tasmania. As the research is still in its early stages, the paper
focuses on the approach to data analysis which consists of a logistics-oriented and industry-based
quantitative analysis applied to the Tasmanian land freight task relative to the years 2002/03 and
2005/06 to identify transport logistics patterns and evolution associated with innovative
Tasmanian firms.
