Welcome to the Livestock, Bulk and Rural Carriers Association

The Livestock, Bulk and Rural Carriers Association (LBRCA) is a community of livestock, bulk and rural carriers
who transport Australia’s essential agricultural products through regional and rural NSW. Together
we are working to achieve a more productive, efficient and safer industry for the future.



The LBRCA understands the specific issues impacting bulk carriers in NSW.

We represent our bulk members with a view to increase productivity and improve efficiency to ensure the viability of bulk member businesses. 

The LBRCA has been instrumental in developing grain industry standards to increase supply chain efficiency and safety.

The LBRCA presents a united and powerful voice to Government.  We work hard with other industries and supply chain partners to get a better deal for the rural freight industry.  

In late 2016, members voted unanimously to change our name to better reflect our true membership – being:

  • Livestock transporters
  • Bulk carriers
  • Rural carriers.   

We have been assisting rural carriers and protecting their interests for the past 30 years – we will continue to do this for the next 30.

The LBRCA has been instrumental in developing a workable livestock loading scheme and improving access in NSW.
