Port of Portland
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.
PORTS PARTNERING TO DELIVER WE ARE PORTS HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION PROGRAM
The Port of Portland is partnering with Ports Australia and AUSMEPA in a nation-wide high school education program designed to provide students insight into the value and importance of ports to Australia’s more than 70 ports to the economy and local communities. The We Are Ports high school education program will teach Australia’s younger demographic about the importance of Australia’s ports to the national economy and the value of trade that passes through the ports.
Bayview College and Portland Secondary College have signed up to participate in the program.
