The ACCC has granted interim authorisation to the Port of Townsville and Far North Queensland Ports Corporation to jointly procure, negotiate and contract for towage services for the ports of Cairns, Mourilyan, Lucinda and Townsville. No new towage licence(s) or berth licenses will become effective unless the ACCC grants final authorisation.
The ACCC may review the interim authorisation at any time. The ACCC’s decision to grant interim authorisation should not be taken to be indicative of whether or not final authorisation will be granted.
Further information about the authorisation is available on the authorisation public register.
