Our People

We employ more than 500 permanent staff and help facilitate another 187,000 jobs through port activities. Our people are hands-down our biggest asset and we take pride in a safe, positive work culture that celebrates diversity and promotes development.

Day-in and day-out, in good weather and bad, our people work 24/7, 365 days a year to keep our port running. More than 75% of our staff work shift hours to make this happen. Check out what some of our people get up to day-to-day in our job-series videos.
