- BHP Stevedoring Pty Ltd
SummaryToll Holdings Ltd proposes to acquire the stevedoring operations of BHP Billiton Ltd by way of the acquisition of shares in BHP Stevedoring Pty Ltd. BHP Stevedoring operates at Port Kembla (NSW), Western Port (Vic), Whyalla (SA) and Bell Bay (Tas).
Market definitionThe relevant markets are for break-bulk stevedoring services at Port Kembla, Western Port and Whyalla, and bulk stevedoring services at Whyalla and Bell Bay.
Competition analysisToll Holdings does not operate stevedoring services at any of the ports in question, and therefore the acquisition will not effect concentration levels in relation to the stevedoring of the relevant types of cargo at the ports in question. BHP Stevedoring handles a very small percentage of stevedoring volume nation-wide, and its major customer (95%) is BHP Steel.
