Frankston City has an important role to play as the government and commerce hub for the Port of Hastings, it is located conveniently just 22km away. Firms that process import/export documentation and customs brokers will need an administrative base in the region, which Frankston is perfectly placed to provide.
An expanded Port of Hastings will increase capacity and competition in the container ports sector servicing Melbourne and Victoria. This will help manage the expected growth in container trade.
The port supports refining/fractionation plants, gas and oil strorage and load-out facilities. The port is also the southern terminal for several pipelines carrying gas and oil to coastal markets.
Around 100-150 vessels are recorded at the port each year, ranging in size up to 100,000 tonnes.
