Business and innovation decisions within AEGIC and within export grain supply chains are facilitated by access to AEGIC’s economic and business analysis services. These analyses form two purposes:
- The identification of profitable and strategically desirable investment decisions and;
- The identification of unprofitable or spurious activities.
Through engagement with supply chain participants and AEGIC economists and business analysts, AEGIC can also help ensure activities and projects are better designed to be more effective to generate increased returns to participants.
The overall outcome is the enhanced efficiency of export grain supply chains and the return of a greater percentage of export grains value creation to producers.
Supply chain reports
AEGIC periodically produces in-depth reports into grain supply chains.
Competitiveness is relative, not absolute, so to establish competitiveness we must identify each link in the grain value chain to determine the extent to which disparities between Australia and our competitors may eventually affect our ability to compete in key markets.
AEGIC has produced three major reports thus far.
The cost of Australia's bulk grain export supply chains - An information paper
This was the first of these reports and was published in January 2014. It focused exclusively on Australia.
Ukraine - An emerging challenge for Australian Wheat Exports
In the third report AEGIC predominantly focused on Ukraine’s export grain value chain. AEGIC compared and contrasted the Ukrainian and Australian grain value chains and reviewed the factors that may influence the future of Ukraine’s grains industry.
Russia’s wheat industry: Implications for Australia
AEGIC undertook competitor analyses of Russia and Ukraine and has launched the second report in its Black Sea series: Russia’s wheat industry: Implications for Australia – an in-depth analysis of the entire Russian grains industry.
The Ukraine report will be followed by similar reports on Russia and Kazakhstan, forming a suite of reports on the Black Sea region.
