Hutchison Ports Australia
Increasing capacity & competition
Hutchison Ports Australia is bringing increased container handling capacity and competition to Australia’s ports.
Hutchison Ports Australia has developed new container terminals in Port Botany and the Port of Brisbane, and is developing a new inter-modal freight terminal at Enfield, south west of Port Botany, and linked to the port by a dedicated rail freight line.
Hutchison Ports Australia is backed by the considerable technical, operational and financial muscle of the world’s leading port investor, developer and operator, Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH).

HPH’s network of 319 berths in 52 ports spanning 26 countries handled 78.3 million TEU in 2013. HPH is investing more than AUD$700 million in the new Australian container terminals.
Hutchison Ports Australia also draws on HPH’s extensive capability as one of the world’s most technologically advanced port operators. The new terminals incorporate the Next Generation Terminal Management System, nGen, developed by HPH to bring new levels of productivity to the ports.
Both Brisbane Container Terminals and Sydney International Container Terminals are now operating.
When fully operational the facilities will increase capacity by 50 per cent in Port Botany and almost 100 per cent in the Port of Brisbane, providing importers, exporters and shipping lines with more choice and better service. Both terminals will be operational within two years and be capable of handling ships carrying 8,000 plus TEU.
