2019 From Paddock to Port Tour

Townsville, Mackay, Gladstone

New levels of supply chain connectivity created through improved shipping services and infrastructure are creating opportunities for Central Queensland producers and agribusiness across diverse markets.

3 Ports in 3 Days: From Monday 1 July to Thursday 4 July 2019, CHDC and the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries will run their second tour of the Port of Townsville (POT), Port of Mackay (North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation) (NQBPC) and Gladstone Port Corporation (GPC) facilities for a group of 26 exporters, aspiring exporters and value chain members.

• Gain insights from key supply chain personnel for Central and Northern Queensland as well as the experiences of local producers from the Port site visits
• Relevant updates on the near future for grains and other commodity freight and logistics
• Connect with the people growing, processing, freighting and exporting the products from our region

Registrations are open now. 2018 sold out quickly and spaces are limited. CHDC and QDAF are finalising the itinerary which will be similar to the 2018 program - only better!
