Business development

The key to the success of Port of Melbourne as a vibrant and efficient trade gateway is our relationships with our customers. Our dedicated Business Development team in Melbourne, New South Wales and Tasmania deliver high levels of service to Port of Melbourne customers.

Whether it's grain to Guangzhou, cotton to Colombo, beef to Busan or wine to Wenzhou, regional exporters are better placed than ever to take advantage of our team to explore global trade opportunities for their cargo.

Industry workshops

The Business Development team also hosts supply chain workshops and inductions for cargo owners and industry participants. These promote understanding of the inner workings of south-eastern Australia’s key trade hub.

Port development

Expertise in understanding supply chain logistics beyond the front gate is backed up by an ongoing port development program and capital investment to meet the needs of local and regional exporters.
