Abstract: This paper investigates the extent to which coastal shipping is being under-utilised in the carriage of freight in Australia; and if so, whether this failing can be ameliorated by changes to taxation, fiscal and other government policies. If it is being under-utilised, then this has adverse environmental consequences, because maritime transport is recognised to be the most environmentally friendly transport mode when compared to road transport.
