CSL Australia

Established in 1999, CSL Australia Ltd. (CSLA) is today the largest owner/operator of dry bulk coastal vessels operating in Australian waters and the major supplier of shipping services to the construction and building industries.

What We Do

Based in Sydney, we operate a fleet of 14 vessels, consisting of five self-unloaders, five pneumatic cement carriers and four transhippers.

We provide specialized self-unloading and pneumatic vessel solutions to deliver over 7.5 million tonnes of dry bulk cargo a year for customers primarily in the construction industry. The cargo we transport includes cement, gypsum, clinker, coal, salt, sugar, iron ore, alumina, limestone and heavy mineral concentrate.

Our expertise in self-unloading solutions is leveraged through our two transhipment operations in South Australia and Western Australia, where we tranship over 14 million tonnes of iron ore and magnetite per annum. Our transhipment vessels enable our customers to export cargo worldwide by loading large ocean-going vessels (Panamax and Capesize) using a lower capital port solution. 

With offices in Sydney, Brisbane, Whyalla and Karratha, we tailor transhipment and coastal self-unloading solutions to our customers' needs by utilising local knowledge and maritime expertise. Our strong commitment to our customers is shown in the continuity of our long-standing relationships and willingness to explore new opportunities together.

Where We Operate

We operate chiefly on both the east and west coasts of Australia, from Northern Queensland to Western Australia. This includes transhipment operations in Whyalla, South Australia and Cape Preston, Western Australia.
