The Port of Newcastle is the world’s largest coal export port and is one of Australia’s largest ports by through put tonnage. It employs 89 employees and provides services related to trade and port development, berth services, vessel scheduling, and dredging and survey. It also accommodates cruise shipping with a cruise terminal due to commence construction in early 2018 and be completed in late 2018. Our Shareholders, The Infrastructure Fund and China Merchants Group, each own 50% and have a strong, global track record in managing large infrastructure assets.
Strategically positioned at the gateway to the largest regional economy in New South Wales, with close proximity to Sydney, the port is the economic and trading centre for the Hunter Valley and much of northern New South Wales and is a critical supply chain interface for the movement of cargo. The Port is conveniently located halfway between Melbourne and Brisbane and 2 hours drive from the Sydney Basin. It has close proximity to Australia’s agricultural centres and project sites across New South Wales, Sydney and Brisbane.
The Port of Newcastle is one of Australia’s most diverse ports. It handles all cargo types, including bulk liquids, project cargo, containers, general cargo, containers and dry bulk. The Port offers unconstrained road, rail, berth, storage and channel capacity with potential to expand. It will be the first port connected to the Inland Rail Line with infrastructure and capacity to support the growth in all trades, including containers.
