Sea Transport is critical to Australia as an island nation. It links our products to overseas markets and allows us access to goods produced elsewhere. 99% of Australia’s international exports and imports travel via sea.

The Port of Adelaide handles all of SA’s direct import and export containers which come from and go to many parts of the world.  

The importance of sea transport to Australia is being recognised through major port infrastructure upgrades across the country. This includes channel deepening in Adelaide and Melbourne, and the building of a new container terminal in Sydney.
