Mode Shift Incentive Scheme

The Mode Shift Incentive Scheme (MSIS) is an incentive program that encourages industry to shift more containerised freight from road to rail.

The aim of the scheme is to increase efficiency and cost effectiveness in the freight sector and reduce congestion on roads in and around freight and port precincts.

In the 2014-15 State Budget, the Victorian Government invested $20 million over four years to continue the scheme. 

Current recipients of the MSIS are:

  • Tocumwal corridor – Patrick Container Ports 
  • Horsham corridor – Wimmera Container Line 
  • Warrnambool corridor – Westvic Container Export 
  • Mildura corridor – Ironhorse Intermodal
