Port of Portland is a deep-water bulk port strategically located between the ports of Melbourne and Adelaide. It is the international gateway for the Green Triangle Region, an area blessed with an abundance of natural resources.
The Port specialises in bulk commodities, particularly agricultural, forestry and mining products as well as aluminium and fertiliser. It has approximately six million tonnes in annual throughput.
The export trade includes grain, woodchips, logs, aluminium ingots and livestock, while import commodities are alumina, liquid pitch and fertiliser products.
The Port's close proximity to shipping lanes and deep-water approaches provides unimpeded access right to the entrance of the harbour basin.
The Port is served by both road and rail systems, which bypass the City of Portland to allow 24-hour access. It delivers $2.5 billion into the region and the nation each year - a figure that will continue to grow.
Port of Portland welcomed the MS Europa on 8 March 2014 and four P&O cruise ships in February and March 2015. Further cruise vessels are lined up to visit the Port of Portland over the next two-years.
