Our Group Vision

Our vision is to be South Australia’s supply chain partner, bringing the state’s businesses closer to each other and to the world. We are achieving this by offering integrated solutions, which leverage all our assets, operations and people.

This approach reduces complexity, cost, and friction for our customers at each stage of the supply chain through to the port. We also recognise the integral role we play in the state’s overall economic development. Through our 50-year masterplan and significant capital expenditure, we aim to future-proof our business and the infrastructure underpinning South Australia’s economy. We are committed to achieving our vision sustainably, in line with Environmental, Social, and Governance good practice.

Our 50 Year Masterplan

Flinders Port Holdings Pty Ltd (FPH) recently completed its first long-term Masterplan. Through its subsidiary Flinders Ports Pty Ltd (FP), FPH is the largest port operator and the primary port authority in South Australia, operating and maintaining seven ports across the State, those being Port Adelaide, Thevenard, Port Pirie, Port Lincoln, Klein Point, Port Giles, and Wallaroo.

The Masterplan is a culmination of the outcomes of multiple reports prepared by our masterplanning partner, Black Quay, and FPH throughout the project’s 12-month timeline. The FPH master planning process was designed to ensure global best practice in strategic port planning, while also ensuring that localised factors and complexities were also fully considered.
