Port of Melbourne Stakeholder and Industry Consultation 2021

Our port users and stakeholders are at the heart of the port and keep it moving. Port of Melbourne is committed to engaging with its stakeholders, and to continually improving the way we inform and consult with our port users, customers, industry, government and the community. Together we are creating the future and building on our proud history.

Find below more information on current consultation as well as more information on key topics.

What’s happening?

Port of Melbourne values the views of its port users and wider stakeholders. 

Throughout April and May 2021, we consulted with port users and other industry stakeholders to provide an update on key issues, port activities and stakeholder interests. Some of these topics included our investment program, trade information, tariff update and preferred ways of communicating.  

As part of this process, we spoke to stakeholders and heard your views and interests, to help shape open and effective engagement in the future.   

We delivered a series of engagement activities during this period and will be reporting back what we heard on this page. Those findings will inform a new Port of Melbourne Engagement Framework.

PDS Delivery Program

The PDS Delivery Program outlines the indicative timing and sequencing of each of the Major Projects outlined in the 2050 PDS over the next 15 years.
These projects have been determined on the basis of the initial planning activities conducted through the development of the 2050 PDS and Our Plan for Rail, and have been further refined based on feedback received through consultation and engagement with industry, community and government stakeholders. If you have further information on the program, or any other matter, please contact us.
