Sydney is the capital of New South Wales, the Australian state with the biggest population. Sydney Harbour– also known as Port Jackson – is located on a 12-mile long inlet, and famous throughout the world for its opera house, bridge and deep-water channels. It’s a thriving port catering for a wide range of commercial and general shipping activity. The harbour welcomes over a thousand vessel visits annually, and is able to accommodate the following types of ship:
As well as the facilities at Sydney Harbour, Port Botany, around 20km south of Sydney Harbour,has two container terminals and a bulk liquids berth. Sydney Harbour and Botany Bay are both working harbours as well as being areas of recreational boating enjoyment.
At Sydney Harbour, dry bulk, bulk liquids and general cargo are processed through berths at nearby Glebe Island and White Bay. Bulk cargo refers to items that are shipped unpackaged in large quantities, rather than being transported in containers or packages. Material is in either liquid or granular form or as a mass of relatively small solids, such as petroleum or crude oil, coal, grain or gravel. Dry bulk is commodities such as coal, iron ore and grain, while
wet bulk (or bulk liquids) includes fuel oil, crude oil, petrol, plant oil and wine. Bulk cargo is usually dropped (dry) or poured (wet) into a merchant ship or tanker truck.
General cargo ships are multi-purpose vessels that can handle both shipping containers and other types of cargo.
Container cargo arrives and leaves Sydney through Port Botany. Almost anything can be transported in a shipping container, as long as it fits. Whether you are moving to another country and need to ship all your possessions, or a business needing to ship merchandise into or out of Australia, shipping containers are the handy way to do it.
The standard size for shipping containers worldwide is 8ft wide, 8.5ft tall and 20ft/40ft long. Because they’re made of metal, they provide excellent protection from the elements. They‘re all the same size, so slot together on the vessel perfectly; a bit like Lego or Tetris. Extra tall shipping containers are also available for larger goods; these are 9.5ft high.
