Interactive website for Melbourne’s supply chain

A new online platform has become available for supply chain businesses working with the Port of Melbourne.

Victorian industry and trade minister Theo Theophanous has launched the Port of Melbourne Supply Chain Awareness Interactive Website to provide online resources, including printable supply chain maps and text detailing the main activities undertaken within the export/import supply chain.

The web project, developed by Transport and Distribution Training Victoria, was funded by the State Government as part of the Victorian Supply Chain Excellence Action Plan.

Mr Theophanous said achieving supply chain excellence would put the state ahead in the global marketplace.

“The website aims to help companies operate more efficiently along sea freight logistics chains,” Mr Theophanous said.

“The content is based on input from all key stakeholders and includes exporters, importers, stevedores, Australian Customs and AQIS, freight forwarders, custom agents and shipping lines.”

 

Port of Melbourne Corporation has announced record trade growth in April, boosted by containerised exports, which increased 15.3% to 65,654 TEU.

The company’s CEO Stephen Bradford said all cargo types showed strong results in the month with total port trade growing by 12.7% over the same month last year.
