Australia: Great Future for Brisbane Container Terminals

Brisbane Container Terminals has increased it ship handling capabilities and reduced truck turnaround times, as development of the new terminal continues.

Container Terminal Manger, Matt Carley, said the improvement is a result of the growing expertise of the BCT team and new equipment coming on line.

Since taking over the reins as Terminal Manager in April this year, Mr Carley said the focus has been improving wharf and landside service levels.

Over recent months we have been able to build on the solid work the BCT team has done since opening in 2012 – adopting new technologies for Australian conditions and helping transport operators become familiar with the new processes, many of which are automated,” Mr Carley said.

Mr Carley said that BCT’s ship service capabilities were enhanced with the arrival and commissioning of two additional quay cranes in June.

“Having twice as many quay cranes is obviously a big boost to our wharf-side capability,” Mr Carley said. “Perhaps more importantly, we now ostensibly have a full complement of skilled and committed employees.”

Construction has started to expand the container stack area, which will ultimately double BCT’s capacity, when completed in 2015.
