Brisbane Airport Corporation is a partner organisation in Australia Trade Coast, the country’s most integrated trade precinct. This is Australia’s global trade and commerce hub at the heart of Asia Pacific.
Brisbane Airport initiated the concept of Freshport, a planned cutting-edge facility to be developed at the airport with a view to becoming a trading and value-adding hub for import and export of perishable commodities by air and sea.
The Freshport needs study was a catalyst to attract the interest of Velocity Brisbane, Brisbane’s investment attraction agency.
Brisbane Airport Corporation, Velocity Brisbane and Wiley have established a joint venture agreement to foster market and investor interest and progress the development of the Freshport facility.
