Flinders Ports is South Australia's leading port operator with seven ports located at Port Adelaide, Port Lincoln, Port Pirie, Thevenard, Port Giles, Wallaroo and Klein Point.
Flinders Ports is committed to delivering the highest quality port services including pilotage, mooring, launch services, port infrastructure, shipping infrastructure management, land infrastructure management, survey and marine control.
Gateway to South Australia
As the gateway to South Australia, Flinders Ports serves the State's industries including agriculture, forestry, resources, liquid fuels as well as manufacturers. Flinders Ports is also working in partnership with the South Australian Tourism Commission to encourage the development of South Australia as a destination for cruise ships.
Flinders Ports continues to develop all of its ports to offer competitive supply chains for customers in each port hinterland. Most of the ports are equipped to handle bulk and break-bulk cargoes, with further development opportunities available for port customers.
All ports have excellent transport links. The ports on the Gulf of St Vincent and the Eyre Peninsula benefit from both road and rail connections to offer intermodal transport options across South Australia and beyond.
Committed to investing in port infrastructure
Flinders Ports has been working on supply chains to move mineral exports from mine to market for South Australia's largest exporter - the mineral resources sector.
A dedicated bulk minerals export precinct has been established at Berth 29, Port Adelaide and Flinders Ports has recently developed 25,000 square metres of hard stand to accommodate the storage and handling of mineral sands.
Beyond Port Adelaide, Flinders Ports is scoping out port infrastructure export options for bulk commodities that are capable of meeting both the short and long-term requirements of South Australia's mining sector.
Completion of a new $22.5 million fuel import facility at Outer Harbor, Port Adelaide, accommodating both MR and LR class vessels is scheduled for March 2014. Flinders Ports has collaborated with industry to make the new common-user fuel berth a reality.
