Waterline reports on trends in (a) throughput, (b) container handling productivity and (c) the cost of importing and exporting containers through Australia’s five major container ports. It covers container exchange with specialised container ships and transport of containers on the land-side of the ports.

This issue covers port terminal activity up to the June quarter 2015. It introduces three new indicators—two examine truck movements outside formal booking systems, for containers and TEUs; the third quantifies backloaded operations, whereby trucks carry containers on both inbound and outbound legs of their trip.
