The commercial port has the capacity to handle a range of dry bulk and other trades subject, in some cases, to the requirement for an alongside berth which the port cannot currently offer. As sustainable opportunities arise, we will support investment in additional facilities and operating plant and equipment in order to handle new business.
Currently the commercial port operates an aggregates facility in partnership with Brett Aggregates. There is scope to handle greater volumes which the commercial port will exploit within the region.
The commercial port lacks a significant market hinterland which might underpin demand for other bulk products. The majority of the latter are, in any event, relatively high volume/low value cargoes. These nonetheless would require additional port facilities which would attract capital expenditure.
Through investment in the commercial port’s sales and marketing capabilities, we will scope opportunities to grow this business.
