The Chief Executive Officer for the Port of Melbourne, Stephen Bradford will be presenting a update on the channel deepening project at an Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia Victorian division breakfast on Tuesday the 20th of October.

Stephen will provide an update on the Port of Melbourne and will focus on the channel deepening project, including the environmental controls before elaborating on future development of the port specifically landside developments.
This event is suited to those interested in the Transport and Logistics chain of the port, the development of the port as an urban centre and to hear about the environmental impact of the Channel Deepening Project.
