NSW Ports is a consortium of leading institutional investors: IFM Investors, Australian Super, Tawreed Investments Limited and Q Super, Cbus, Hesta and Hostplus. Our shareholders represent over five million Australian superannuation fund members and are long-term investors with interests in a range of Australian infrastructure assets.
We are responsible for managing Port Botany and Port Kembla, the Cooks River Intermodal Terminal and Enfield Intermodal Logistics Centre. Much of the land we manage is leased to third-party port and logistics operators who are responsible for operations, maintenance and development within their leased areas.
We are responsible for some port operations such as operations at Port Botany’s bulk liquid berths and rail operations within the Port Kembla port precinct. Our roles and responsibilities, together with our regular interactions with port supply chain stakeholders, means that we understand port-related activities and the requirements to achieve a sustainable and efficient port supply chain.
As an island nation, Australia has no land connections with major trading partners. Sea freight is vital to the movement of goods in and out of the country, accounting for over 99 per cent1 of our imports and exports.
Sea freight is the most efficient and sustainable method for transporting large volumes of goods over long distances. Our ports are the international gateways for this freight and are supported by landside freight facilities, intermodal terminals, infrastructure and services. They are well positioned to service the markets of Sydney, the Illawarra and regional NSW.
Port Botany and Port Kembla are NSW’s primary import and export gateways. The Cooks River intermodal Terminal and Enfield Intermodal Logistics Centre support the growing container trade demand through Port Botany.
Port Botany and Port Kembla are economic assets of national significance, critical to the future economic growth and development of NSW. They are NSW’s key import and export gateways, collectively contributing around $4 billion per year to the NSW economy and supporting over 26,000 jobs.
