Port Botany stakeholder forums

    Stakeholder input in the cargo movement chain is critical for identifying issues and developing solutions.

    The input of all stakeholders in the cargo movement chain is critical for identifying issues and developing sustainable solutions to drive efficiency improvements on the freight network. 

    There are two formal forums in place for rail and road operations at Port Botany.

    Port Botany Rail Optimisation Group

    The Port Botany Rail Optimisation Group (PBROG) was established in 2015 to help drive improved rail network utilisation and efficiency at the port.

    The members of PBROG are CEO level representatives of the stevedores, rail operators, NSW Ports, Transport for NSW and port infrastructure participants. 

    PBROG is providing Transport for NSW with critical advice on rail operational performance in and out of Port Botany, including removing any policy or regulatory impediments to improving rail freight performance.

    The group has identified and agreed on three key areas to review: stevedores' productivity, number of containers per train, and idle time within the port.

    Port Botany Road Taskforce

    The Port Botany Road Taskforce (PRT) provides advice to Transport for NSW on strategies and actions to optimise the movement of containers by road to and from the container terminals at Port Botany. 

    The taskforce is comprised of CEO level representatives of the stevedores, truck operators, NSW Ports, Transport for NSW and port infrastructure participants.
