The value of Queensland ports and associated

Department of Transport and Main Roads

Steve Kanowski

Queensland’s ports are closely integrated with global supply chains, national and state transport networks, and regional areas where commodities are produced.

Ports connect Queensland’s industry and residents with the world by providing access to a diverse range of goods and services and enabling businesses to reach a global customer base for export opportunities. It is important that communities, investors, and governments recognise the economic and social value of ports and the role they play in shaping cities and regions.

The overarching purpose of this report is to convey the value of Queensland ports and associated supply chains from an economic and social perspective.
