Australia – Melbourne
Melbourne’s port operations are located at the north of Port Phillip Bay, approximately 3 kilometres from the central business district. The Port of Melbourne is the largest commercial port in Australia, a modern growth port that is presently undergoing some significant improvements. A channel deepening operation was completed in 2009 giving access to vessels with draughts of up to 14 metres.
DP World Melbourne is located in the West Swanson area of the Port of Melbourne, equipped with the latest terminal control system and boasts easy access to road and rail. The terminal is the largest container terminal operated by DP World Australia, at 49 Hectares.
DP World Melbourne offers a full range of electronic business support to clients, including electronic customs import release of cargo, electronic data interchange (EDI) reporting and web browser based information services.
A large part of DP World Melbourne’s expansion commitment is the development of the adjoining West Swanson intermodal terminal site. This site has an existing rail siding which has been incorporated into the terminal facility to improve rail access directly into and out of the terminal. The rail line links Melbourne’s outer regions as well as Adelaide and Perth, which further improves opportunities for shippers to move their cargo through one of Australia’s most significant commercial hubs.
