This Information Sheet identifies the 33 largest spatial concentrations of transport industry employment within Australia. These major transport employment hubs are all located within the five most populous capital cities and include airports, ports, CBDs and a range of industrial areas. This study presents evidence on the number of jobs located in each of these transport employment hubs, the industry mix of those jobs, and the characteristics of workers in each location. In particular, it focuses on investigating the nature of employment in the industrial area hubs, many of which serve important freight and logistics functions.
