What is it like to work in Transport and Logistics in Geelong?
Geelong is at the hub of a road, rail, air and sea transport web. Moving people and products around has created 5.7% more jobs in our region since the 2011 census.
The Port of Geelong, around which the city of Geelong was originally established, has announced a mind blowing series of developments already commenced or about to be rolled out in the port precinct. Here are just three:
- The $85 million Maltuerop malthouse where half of Victoria’s malting barley will be processed to meet a growing South East Asian Market.
- A new 25 year partnership between GeelongPort and Boral Cement to construct a $130 million clinker grinding and cement facility operating around the clock, to handle around 1.3 million tonnes of cement products per year, products designed to build our city’s future.
- Viva Energy $115 million infrastructure additions, including a $50million crude oil tank project to protect Victoria’s fuel security and new fuel pipeline transports to provide fuel to Avalon and Melbourne Airports.
Road and rail systems in Geelong are expanding daily to service our growth corridors. Today, 80% more people work in Geelong’s passenger rail system than did in 2006. With the expansion of our international Avalon airport, Careers that Move in Geelong are on the move!
