Posted on Monday, 19 December 2016 (Archive on Monday, 19 June 2017)
As vessels increase in size and demand grows for Australian ports to take these larger vessels, Port of Brisbane has proven its capabilities to accommodate the largest container vessel to ever berth at the Port –the Lloyd Don Carlos (capacity 8500 TEU'S). This is a very positive outcome for our customers, exporters and the Queensland economy.
We are working with DHI Australia and other partners, combining leading technology with operational expertise to optimise the navigational channel and ensure Port of Brisbane can safely handle the larger container vessels and bulk carriers of the future. For our customers and exporters, this means they can also continue to grow and innovate, confident the Port of Brisbane will not be the limiting factor on the east coast of Australia. As
Queensland’s premier multi-cargo port handling almost $50 billion in trade annually, we have a clear focus on investing, innovating and collaborating to connect trade.
This is just one achievement in our ongoing work to sustainably grow trade through the Port of Brisbane and ensure it truly is here for the future.
