Deepening the Fremantle Inner Harbour in 2010 to 14.7 metres has ensured that the Port of Fremantle can handle any of the largest container ships currently visiting Australia’s capital city ports. The international trend towards larger container ships is expected to continue, with future operational and infrastructure implications for all Australian container ports. Modelling undertaken this year shows that Fremantle’s container terminals will be able to handle significantly larger ships than those currently calling, as this graphic shows. (TEU stands for a twenty-foot equivalent unit or standard container.)
