Logistics

QSL is one of the largest and most efficient bulk sugar terminal operators in the world.

We operate six bulk sugar terminals in Queensland with a combined storage capacity of 2.5 million tonnes of raw sugar. 

On 7 June 2017, QSL and Sugar Terminals Limited (STL) signed a strategic Operating Agreement and agreed transitional arrangements for the operation of the bulk sugar terminals for the 2017 sugar season.

Key elements of the Operating Agreement are as follows:

  • The agreement commenced on 1 July 2017 and included transitional arrangements to deal with 2017 season sugar received prior to 1 July 2017.

  • The agreement has an initial five-year term, with a three-year rolling term thereafter.

  • Marketers and terminal users, including QSL, will contract directly with STL for terminal access.

  • Ring-fencing provisions, similar to those in place in other industries, ensure QSL's Logistics Division and Marketing Division are managed and operated separately, thus addressing industry concerns about confidentiality and conflicts of interest.
