JV Port Services
Through Joint Ventures with more than ten local landowner groups, the JV Port Services (JVPS) businesses offer a full range of stevedoring and handling facilities in the ports of Port Moresby, Lae, Alotau, Oro, Madang, Kimbe, Kavieng and Kiunga. Each joint venture employs a local workforce and is a joint venture equity arrangement with local community partners.
With a fleet of specialist equipment the businesses handle all types of containers, as well as project cargo, breakbulk, RO-RO, LO-LO and grains. Local trucking businesses are also operated at several locations.
The JVPS businesses have increased vessel productivity by up to 100% in the past 5 years, which matches industry best standards for our method of operation and cargo mix. Safety standards are benchmarked against industry best practices and in accordance with AS/NZS standards. JVPS has achieved ISO accreditation for Safety and Environmental standards and will add Quality in 2019.
As part of our commitment to safe and efficient work practices JVPS has our own Registered Training Organisation (RTO) that we train our own staff under, enabling staff access to nationally recognised training.
JVPS take our position in the PNG corporate landscape seriously and as part of the Steamships group always strive to ensure the advancement of PNG and its people.
