Port of Brisbane Public Weighbridge

A public weighbridge has been installed at the Port of Brisbane to help facilitate the Chain of Responsibility (COR) legislation that imposes liability on all parties in the supply chain for breaches of road transport law.

The automated weighbridge will provide auditable records that show a vehicle’s controlled legal mass. This will assist with recent initiatives, such as, Container Weight Declarations (CWD) which must be provided (and accompany the container) every time a container is transported by truck.

The Public Weighbridge is owned and managed by the Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (License Number PW-0109) and is located at 52 Port Drive (adjacent to the Brisbane Multimodal Terminal or BMT).
