This Information Sheet uses freight vehicle telematics data to illustrate the freight catchment areas of Australia’s five mainland capital city ports. The report includes maps showing a sample of private freight vehicle movements, comprising several hundred thousand journeys, to and from each port, over calendar year 2019. The maps cover the 24 hours prior to arriving at the port and 24 hours after stopping at the port. The results highlight the extensive regional influence of all five capital city ports and also reveal significant seasonal variation in the geographic extent of port-related truck movements.
