PHPA – Port of the Year (Australia)
The Port Hedland Port Authority was awarded the “Port of the Year” at the 17th Annual Lloyd’s List Australian Shipping & Maritime Industry Awards in Sydney last night.
The event attracted more than 400 senior industry executives from Australia’s shipping, ports and maritime industry, making it one of the more prestigious events in the shipping industry’s calendar.
The “Port (or Terminal) of the Year” is one of the most sought-after awards in the Australian maritime industry.
The award recognises excellence in specific port/terminal development projects, technical innovation, overall management achievements and commercial successes.
CEO Roger Johnston thanked PHPA staff for helping the port authority achieve the prestigious award.
“I am delighted by the achievement, which is testimony to the hard work and diligence PHPA staff have put in consistently and at a high standard,” Mr Johnston said.
There were 16 categories determined by the judging panel and two awards selected by the editorial staff of Lloyd’s List Australia.
