11:10 AM Case Study: Improving Freight Transportation and Efficiency through TasPorts’ Strategic Port Master Plan
Tasmanian Ports Corporation is a state owned company responsible for the management and development of all ports in Tasmania. As an island state, 99% of their freight is imported and exported by sea. A focused approach to improving the operation and development of port structures is a primary driver for the organisation.
In late 2018 they began the implementation of their Port Master Plan, guiding a 15 year investment to the sum of over $200 million. Within this they have worked to improve ramp upgrades, wharf extensions and increased freight capacity to accommodate larger container and cargo vessels.
- Implement strategic frameworks to improve the facilitation of trade
- Improve the commercial provision of infrastructure and services
- Focus on the protection of wharfs and surrounding port structures
