Flinders Ports history

Flinders Ports was formed in 2001 when the Flinders Ports consortium successfully acquired seven ports that were privatised by the South Australian Government.

In addition to the port infrastructure, Flinders Ports acquired a 99-year land lease and port operating licence for the Port of Adelaide and six regional ports.

Since launching with 191 workers in 2001, Flinders Ports has grown to become a significant economic player and employer in South Australia. In 2007, Flinders Ports became part of the Flinders Port Holdings group, which now employs over 560 staff and was listed number 59 in the South Australian Business Index of top 100 companies, released in October 2016.
