Act govt awards kingston harbour contract
A deal has been made with Queensland Ports Authority (QPA) for a contract for the Kingston harbour contract to continue until 2018.
The port’s director of business development, Rob Sable, says the deal allows QPA to maintain its position as an anchor tenant of the terminal and avoid the long wait times between contracts.
“We are going to delive바카라r on a promise that the public has been making,” he said.
The deal with QPA was signed in February 2015 and has seen an increase in container 바카라사이트capacity at the port of up to 1,100 container flights a day in the years since.

She says that was the plan with the last two commercial services agreements.
QPA CEO, David Whiteley, says the port is committed to continuing to deliver and has offered to extend the agreement.
“We are not concerned with the length of this contract as it will be extended for a full term and we will be giving everyone the opportunity to ask us to extend as well,” he said.
“QPA is commit바카라사이트ted to provide a seamless experience, which I think is the most important part, for the public in terms of coming to the port.”
He says the airport will continue to attract cargo through container terminal, but he is unsure of the exact volume.
“QPA is committed to delivering a consistent volume through QPR and we want to continue doing that, but certainly there ar
