Ports, shipping and airports

Over 99 per cent of goods leaving and arriving in Tasmania are moved by sea, making ports a central point for the exchange of goods, and the focus for land freight connections.

Tasmania has four major publicly-owned ports at Bell Bay, Burnie, Devonport, and Hobart.

While currently representing only a small percentage of Tasmania’s total outbound freight market, air is also an important freight mode. Many of Tasmania’s high value perishable food products depend strongly on effective airfreight solutions to access markets.
