CEO, Anthony Donald said TasPorts is a long-standing and very proud supporter of the awards and is delighted to again be Awards Partner in addition to the Emerging Exporter Category.

"We are proudly responsible for 11 Tasmanian ports and the Devonport Airport, and we have a rich history of facilitating trade for the benefit of all Tasmanians,” Mr Donald said.

"Tasmania’s export sector continues to be an innovative and exciting sector and we are proud to support all exporters through our multi-port system.”

Premier Jeremy Rockliff said the Awards were a fitting tribute to the incredible hard work and success of our exporters who do fantastic work right across the State.

“They are well supported by TasPorts, with 99 per cent of our freight moves through TasPorts’ multi-port network where it’s delivered to the mainland and around the world,” Mr Rockliff said.

“TasPorts knows as well as anyone that local exporting businesses are essential to growing and strengthening our economy, and it’s fantastic they are giving back and backing the industry through their support for the Awards,” he said.

TasPorts was pleased to welcome Premier Jeremy Rockliff to its head office in Launceston recently to informally open the nominations process for the Awards. While there he took some time out from his busy schedule to visit the Vessel Tracking Services team to see first-hand how TasPorts monitors and manages ship traffic.

This year there will be 13 category award winners who go on to compete against other state and territory winners in the national awards. Winners will be announced at a gala awards event in Launceston on Friday, 22 September 2023 with the national awards to be announced in November 2023 in Canberra.
