Third container terminal announced for 2016 in Melbourne
Victorian International Container Terminal Limited has won the contract to operate the third container terminal at the Port of Melbourne.
David Hodgett, Victorian Minister for Ports announced the successful bid last week and added ““Importantly, there will now be three stevedoring options for port users in Victoria which will increase competition in the market.”
“The new terminal will handle over one million standard containers each year and Victoria International Container Terminal Ltd will concentrate on promoting off peak truck movements to improve the efficiency of Victoria’s transport logistics and feed expanding supply chains.”
Work on the new terminal is expected to start later this year and be completed in late 2016.
