Abstract/Summary The aim of the study was to identify the workforce issues affecting Australian ports, particularly in key and critical skills, and to establish the extent to which the industry is prepared to deal with the expected growth in trade flows over the next two decades. It is expected that cargo volumes through the ports will triple following steady recovery from the global financial crisis and increased global freight volumes. The Skills Council welcomes increased government and industry spending in expanding port facilities and associated road and rail networks, but is concerned that maritime skills and workforce planning is not being given the same level of attention.
