  • V/Line sale finally underway
    THE sale process for V/Line Freight is finally under way, with advertisements calling for expressions of interest in the Victorian rail freight operator appearing in local and international newspapers last Friday.
    The Victorian government, which originally hoped to have V/Line Freight sold-off in the first quarter of this year, said expressions of interest for the business would close on 14 August, with the tender process expected to take six months.
  • Westrail freight on the market
    WESTRAIL'S freight business will be sold and a new owner is expected to be in the driving seat before the second quarter of next year.
    North American, British and European companies, including Gateway Express, are among the string of international rail companies that have already shown strong interest in the freight business which made a $43 million operating profit last financial year.
    Westrail acting commissioner Wayne James said privatisation was crucial for the survival of the haulage business under new national competition laws where open access arrangements would see private sector rail operators given the right to use Westrail's 5400 km of track network.
  • More than a grain of truth at new Geelong facility
    VICGRAIN'S new $22 million bulk product export terminal was officially opened in Geelong last week by Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett.
    Vicgrain chairman Alan McCallum said that the new facility represented a "milestone in grain and commodity handling in Victoria".
    Mr McCallum said: "The new facility positions Vicgrain as a premier bulk commodity handler for the next century. We now have the port infrastructure to take advantage of new opportunities for loading alternative bulk product while increasing the efficiency of our core business."
  • Sea-Land's Brisbane cranes arrive
    SEA-LAND is on target to receive its first ship at the port of Brisbane this month.
    This follows the arrival of container cranes and essential infrastructure on board the heavy lift ship Zhen Hua 3, operated by the Shanghai-based Zhenhua Port Machinery Company (ZPMC), last week.
    A deal struck between Sea-Land and Port of Brisbane Corporation earlier this year gives the terminal operator priority use of the port's No. 7 terminal at Fisherman Islands.
  • AMSA denies claim of Reith involvement
    THE AUSTRALIAN Maritime Safety Authority has denied a claim by the Australian Institute of Marine & Power Engineers that the Minister for Workplace Relations Peter Reith has become involved in the dispute over crewing of the vessels Cape Grafton and Rig Seismic.
    AMSA general manager responsible for navigational services, Alan Smart, said the organisation's actions were determined by the decision of its management and board.
    "AMSA operated within government policy and consulted the minister, but it was not acting under instructions," Mr Smart said.
