Port of Brisbane finalist in major maritime industry awards

Port of Brisbane has been shortlisted as a finalist in three categories for this year’s DCN Australian Shipping & Maritime Industry Awards: Port or Terminal of the Year, Environmental Award, and Young Achiever of the Year.

PBPL CEO, Roy Cummins, welcomed the industry recognition for the Port and congratulated all finalists.

“It’s been an extraordinarily challenging 12 months for everyone, and the ports sector is no exception.  We’re proud to be recognised for our overall performance and operations during the year, as well as our industry leading Sustainability Strategy, which we continue to implement across the business,” said Mr Cummins.

“In particular, I am delighted that our IT Trainee, Taylor Blair, is a finalist for the Young Achiever of the Year category. 

“Taylor, part of our broader Brisbane International Cruise Terminal project team, played a central role in the installation of the new cruise terminal’s technology infrastructure - going above and beyond his role as a trainee to show leadership and embrace new learning opportunities in his work.   

“At Port of Brisbane, we remain committed to playing a leading role in Australia’s port and logistics industry and working with all our stakeholders to deliver positive economic, environmental and community outcomes for the port and for Queensland.

“On behalf of the team, I’d also like to congratulate our customers and stakeholders who have been shortlisted as finalists and wish them the very best of luck for the awards.

“Thank you to all our customers, industry stakeholders and community partners for your ongoing support.”
