Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd & Carnival plc

Summary

Port of Brisbane Pry Ltd (PBPL) and Carnival seek authorisation for arrangements to support the construction of a new cruise ship terminal by PBPL, whereby the parties will enter into an agreement under which Carnival will be bound by take or pay obligations for the new terminal, in exchange for which they will receive certain priority berthing rights from PBPL.

The statutory timeframe for the ACCC to make its final determination has been extended until 11 May 2018. The ACCC asked the applicants to agree to an extension of the time to consider the application, because the ACCC required additional time to seek and consider further information to inform its decision.
