Monitoring & reporting for container stevedoring

The ACCC produces and publishes annual container stevedoring monitoring reports.

About monitoring & reporting for container stevedoring

Container stevedores are responsible for lifting containers on and off container ships. As a key part of the port supply chain, the efficiency of the stevedoring industry has a bearing on the cost of imported goods sold in Australia and the international competitiveness of Australian exports.

Under Part VIIA of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010, the ACCC monitors prices, costs and profits of container stevedoring operators located in the ports of Adelaide, Brisbane, Burnie, Fremantle, Melbourne and Sydney.
