Port of Gladstone and Port Alma Shipping Terminal handle over 30 products, which are transported to more than 30 countries. Our major products include coal, alumina, aluminium and cement.
Coal is by far our largest export commodity, representing 70% of the total cargo exported through Port of Gladstone. The majority (approx 75%) of coal handled at the port is coking coal and is exported to Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Italy and France for high quality steel manufacturing. And approximately 25% of coal exported via our port is thermal, which is exported to fuel the boilers of power stations in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea and Israel.
The Port of Gladstone is one of the world's top five coal export ports, handling in excess of 50 million tonnes of coal per annum.
GPC owns and operates two coal export terminals in the Port - RG Tanna Coal Terminal and Barney Point Terminal. Combined, these two terminals have the capacity to handle over 75 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa).
Whilst the Port of Gladstone is internationally recognised as a major bulk port, it also caters to all forms of containerised and general cargoes. Containerised cargoes are mainly sourced from local major industry and include primarily aluminium, chemicals and cement. General cargoes include breakbulk cargoes such as bagged products and aluminium, project cargo for new/expanding industry and heavy lifts.
Auckland Point No.4 Wharf and the adjacent Gladstone Container Terminal are used to handle all containerised and general cargoes. Both the wharf and terminal are operated as multi-user facilities.
Port Alma Shipping Terminal facilitates the import and export of niche market products including ammonium nitrate; explosives; general cargo; salt; frozen beef; tallow and scrap metal. Both ports are secure and sheltered.
