TT-Line has provided a vital service in what has been an extremely tough year, safely moving people, freight and food across the Bass Strait.

The TT-Line Annual Report 2019-20 shows, as expected, that the pandemic has heavily impacted the business, and we thank the board, management and staff for their continued operation during this difficult time.

This service has been relied upon in the face of dramatically reduced air capacity in and out of the state.

TT-Line has played a pivotal role when freight capacity has been constrained for various reasons, transporting produce across the Bass Strait to keep the nation fed.

The professionalism and quick action taken by TT-Line in offering a continued reliable and safe service is a testament to the board and staff.

TT-Line has a bright future, and we look forward to the Spirit of Tasmania’s Victorian port move to Corio Quay, which will future-proof the service, increase freight capacity and provide access to secondary tourism markets from New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia.
