Business Performance

At DBT we strive to deliver prosperity by optimising terminal and supply chain performance.

DBT is supporting regional economic prosperity as a major local employer and ‘buying local’ wherever possible. DBT’s annual direct contribution to the Queensland economy exceeds $280 million and our essential role in the coal export supply chain is an additional indirect contribution. The coal shipped through DBT accounts for around 35 per cent of Queensland coal royalty revenues, which comprised approximately 7 per cent of the state’s revenue 2018-20191.

Ensuring a sustainable terminal is critical to providing a viable coastal gateway for the coal export trade. Our collaboration and communication with supply chain partners – mining companies, rail operators, ship owners and shipping agents – encourages transparency, efficiency and improved performance across the supply chain.

1 Queensland Budget Strategy and Outlook. 2018-2019 coal royalties and land rents of $4.4bn, State revenue of $60.1bn.
