73 FUTURE FREIGHT NETWORKS 2011 COMPANY PROFILE Australia's nearest Port to Asia, the Port of Darwin is a multi- modal, future focused Port which is strategically positioned to service Australia's increasing trade needs. Located at latitude 12° 28'S, longitude 130° 50'E, the Port's East Arm Wharf is the northern terminus of the AustralAsian railway. Port infrastructure includes a 1,500 tph rail dump which has the capacity to handle 25 ore trains per week and a bulk ship loading facility with a capacity of up to 2,000 tph which currently handles around 3.6 million tonnes annually. Darwin is regarded as Australia's second offshore industry support hub and the Port is the import and distribution destination for most cargoes used in the oil and gas industry in the seas off northern Australia. Says Robert Ritchie, Darwin Port Corporation CEO "The Port has successfully managed significant changes to infrastructure, trade and corporate strategies in order to provide superior services and additional capabilities to its customers and stakeholders." The Port of Darwin is the regional transport and logistics hub that links Australia with its Asian trading partners. Its ability to service and supply the growing needs of Australian trade and the oil and gas industry ensures its position as the port of choice and a key player in the economic development of the Northern Territory and Australia.
