Port Lincoln is 682km away from Adelaide in South Australia by road (280km by air). It’s a natural harbour on the Eyre Peninsula’s south-east coast. As a deep-water harbour, it can load huge vessels with bulk commodities such as wheat and barley. Because it’s a tidal port, its water level rises and falls depending on the tides. The main commodities processed at Port Lincoln are grains and seeds, petroleum products and fertilisers. Live sheep and frozen fish are also exported.

With bulk cargo, goods are shipped loosely in large quantities rather than being transported in packages or containers. Material is granular or liquid form, or as a mass of small solids. Examples of bulk cargo are petroleum, crude oil, coal, grain and gravel. As a rule, bulk cargo is being dropped into a tanker, or for liquid (wet) bulk, poured into the vessel. It is essential that bulk ports like Port Lincoln have good infrastructure and highly effective organisational structures in order to be able to accommodate these demands.
