Logistics & Trade

Port Authority of New South Wales is dedicated to serving the port users of Sydney and New South Wales (NSW) and their related industries. A key role of the ports is to facilitate trade by providing a competitive advantage to importers, exporters and the port-related supply chain.

In supporting the growth of trade through Sydney Harbour we work to maximise both the trade and logistics advantages for the ports, helping NSW businesses and consumers to meet their needs and wants. By working with port users, stakeholder groups, industry bodies and the government, Port Authority of New South Wales enhances user experiences at the ports.

Trade through Sydney Harbour consists predominantly of dry bulk items such as sugar, salt, cement, gypsum; and bulk liquids such as refined oil and vegetable oil.

In order to manage the existing volumes and to attract additional trade through the port, we are constantly assessing and improving our port facilities and supporting infrastructure.

In addition to the movements of goods, the cruise industry is another important business for Port Authority of New South Wales, reflecting Sydney's role as a tourism gateway to NSW and Australia. Sydney hosts some of the world's leading luxury liners, calling at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay and White Bay Cruise Terminal at Balmain.
