Geelong is the second largest city in the state of Victoria and is home to over 225,000 people. The city is located on Corio Bay and the Barwon River, 75 kilometres south-west of the state's capital, Melbourne.
Geelong’s economy is driven by the manufacturing and processing industries, hosting automotive, mining and oil refinery operations.
The Port of Geelong handles the sixth largest tonnage in Australia, and is the largest regional port in Victoria. The port plays an important role because of its close proximity to Melbourne, while not experiencing the type of congestion typical of a capital city port. The major commodities handled by the port include crude oil and petroleum products, export grain and woodchips, alumina imports and fertiliser. The port has eight major piers and twenty-one berths for vessels. The shipping channels in Corio Bay accommodate vessels to a maximum draft of 11.3 metres.
ISS Geelong has complete knowledge of all local shipping conditions and requirements, and is committed to providing optimum service for their Principals.
