ACCC warning on Freo Ports

The competition watchdog has warned that the privatisation process for Fremantle Ports could deliver a high price to government, but that it may come at the expense of port users.

The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission has expressed concern about privatising the monopoly service without suitable regulatory controls.

It also is concerned about the tender process for Fremantle’s two stevedoring terminals, run by Asciano subsidiary Patrick, and DP World.
