Landside Logistics Efficiencies
The Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd identified the need to understand the movement of import and export containers through the supply chain linking the port to locations within Brisbane, and beyond.
The aim of the study was to gain a better understanding of the transport, storage and distribution of import/export containers between both the port and importers/exporters, and the point of first pick up and final delivery, in order to assist with the planning of road and rail infrastructure.
A synopsis of the full report can be accessed at:
Port of Brisbane Container Original-Destination Survey – March 2007
A comprehensive guide to the sea freight supply chain has been developed by a working group of the Landside Logistics Forum for importers, exporters and other parties in the supply chain. The guide is aimed at helping participants improve their efficiency and reduce delays, congestion and unnecessary costs.
A Guide to Maximising Efficiencies in the Sea Freight Container Supply Chain is the culmination of extensive consultation with all parties in the sea freight supply chain, and draws extensively on the work carried out by the Victorian Freight and Logistics Council for the Business Activity Harmonisation Study (BAHS).
To obtain a copy of the Guide to Maximising Efficiencies in the Sea Freight Container Supply Chain please contact the Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd Port Operations team on 07 3258 4839.
To improve efficiency and reduce congestion and the number of trucks at the port, the Port of Brisbane, in conjunction with Queensland Transport, has approved access to Fisherman Islands and Port Gate for Super B-double combinations.
