The Port of Brisbane is a cornerstone of the Queensland economy – it is one of Australia’s fastest growing container ports and the state’s largest multi-cargo port.
Located at the mouth of the Brisbane River, Port of Brisbane is managed and developed by the Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) under a 99-year lease from the Queensland Government.
PBPL is owned by the APH Consortium (formerly known as Q Port Holdings consortium), comprising four of the world’s largest and most experienced infrastructure investors. The members are: Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec; IFM Investors; QIC Global Infrastructure on behalf of its managed funds; and Tawreed Investments Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority.
PBPL’s role, as defined by the port lease, includes:
the maintenance and development of the port and related facilities
operation of the Brisbane Multimodal Terminal
leasing and managing land for port-related services
facilitation of the development approval process for developments on Brisbane core port land
maintaining navigable access to the port for commercial shipping
operating the Visitors Centre.
Other port operations, including stevedoring and towage, are carried out by private operators who lease land from PBPL. Vessel traffic services are the responsibility of the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, and pilotage services are carried out by a private operator.
