Managing Director's Update - Westport's Preferred DesignWatch Video
Westport's Managing Director, Patrick Seares
Westport's approach to planning
As this is one of the largest infrastructure projects undertaken in WA in recent history, we’ve brought forward a lot of work typically done in the later stages of infrastructure development to get the planning right.
We have identified a preferred design for WA’s future container supply chain, which includes a new port in Kwinana supported by an upgraded road and rail freight network and logistics hub.
An innovative approach
As part of Westport’s long-term, strategic planning approach we are investigating what new technologies and logistic trends may be on the horizon. This includes considering everything from hydrogen power to global changes in shipping logistics trends.
Designing an efficient, world-leading, and sustainable terminal and supply chain is key to the success of the Westport Program. To help achieve this goal we are building flexibility into our design and fostering innovation in our team and with stakeholders.
