Susie Harwood is the Executive Director Freight at Transport for NSW, leading Freight Branch in giving freight a louder voice earlier by raising the profile of freight as a fundamental customer of the transport system, to enable the safe, productive and sustainable movement of goods. Working in partnership across government and with industry to deliver improved freight outcomes for the people of NSW. With more than a decade of experience in Transport, Susie has played an important role in building strong and trusted relationships with transport customers and the freight industry. With her team, Susie is currently working to ensure that Transport for NSW and government more broadly understands and values the role of freight.
