Black Quay is delivering the 50-year masterplan to guide the short, medium and long-term development of the seven South Australian ports under FPH control, including the container terminal at Port Adelaide. The plan includes multiple commodities across Port Adelaide, Port Pirie, Port Lincoln, Port Giles, Klein Point, Wallaroo and Thevenard, as well as several business streams within the group.

It involves strategic and operational port planning and modelling, detailed trade forecasting, long-term fleet forecasting covering all vessel types, as well as analysis of future state challenges and opportunities in the ports and maritime sector. It will also include consideration of how the long-term masterplan will connect with freight transport initiatives beyond the port gates, environmental and energy factor determination and integration.
