 STRATEGY

  • To continue to grow as a safe, modern, niche South Coast trust port, with a balanced portfolio of revenue from our marine, operations and property streams.

  • The Port’s core cargoes will remain associated with construction (timber/aggregates/steel) agricultural products (grain) and fish, but we will seek to diversify our cargo base (biomass/peat/plastics/wood pulp/glass) and support the renewable energy sector.

  • Investments will continue to be made in our Marine and Operations streams to ensure we provide our customers with appropriate, sustainable and efficient infrastructure, equipment, warehousing, and navigable channels, as well as expanding our Property base through strategic partnering/acquisition of key sites.
