Motukea International Terminal Ltd.
PNG’s newest international seaport and trading gateway.
PNG’s economy rests on a rich combination of renewable and nonrenewable resources. The mining and energy sectors are among its drivers (with liquefied natural gas, crude petroleum, gold, and copper exports), along with the revived agricultural sector. The increasing global recognition of PNG’s high- quality “fine or flavor” cocoa bodes well for trade prospects, especially with support from MITL’s modern cargo handling capabilities.
MIT is the only facility in Port Moresby that can handle international containers. Ro/Ro and break bulk vessels are also accommodated in MIT.
It is also the only terminal in Port Moresby that offers mobile cranes (non-ship geared) and caters to vessels with drafts under 12.5m.
Considered to be in an optimal location—benefiting from access to both Southeast Asia and the South Pacific regions— PNG’s continuing growth makes the Port of Motukea a vital development. The new port infrastructure is located roughly 12 kilometers from the Central Business District in Port Moresby.
