Fremantle Ports is a Western Australian Government trading enterprise that strategically manages the Port of Fremantle. The port is the State’s biggest general cargo port and Australia's fourth largest container port. Fremantle Ports operates on commercial principles to ensure that the needs of importers and exporters now and in the future can be met in a sustainable way with the support of customers and the community.
The Port of Fremantle operates through two harbours:
- the Inner Harbour at Fremantle handles almost all of the container trade for Western Australia. It also provides facilities for livestock exports, motor vehicle imports, other general cargo trades, cruise ships and visiting naval vessels
- the Outer Harbour, about 22km to the south at Kwinana, is one of Australia’s major bulk cargo ports handling grain, petroleum, liquid petroleum gas, alumina, mineral sands, fertilisers, coal, sulphur, iron ore and other bulk commodities.
