About TasPorts

TasPorts is a state-owned company responsible for eleven Tasmanian ports and the Devonport Airport.

As an island state, Tasmania is reliant upon shipping, port infrastructure and port operations to sustain our communities and our economy.

Each year 99% of the State’s freight moves through TasPorts’ multi-port network.

TasPorts operates under the Tasmanian Ports Corporation Act 2005.
