The Port Hedland Industries Council (PHIC) was established by industry port users in 2009 to provide a collaborative approach to cumulative industry issues.
PHIC provides a single industry point of contact and coordinates inter-industry responses to issues such as air quality and noise. The Council is the lead representative body on issues where two or more operators are involved.

A landmark industry study demonstrates the economic significance of the the Port of Port Hedland and the value generated across the Port supply chain for the local community, the State and Australia.
Looking to the future, the study forecasts an additional $37 billion in economic output for the Australian economy, $11 billion of which would be realised in the local Pilbara community.
Industry is significant member of the Port Hedland community and recognises it plays a key role in managing the environment in Port Hedland. PHIC strongly believes that industry can only grow and prosper if it enjoys community support. Open communication between stakeholders is essential. An environment that nurtures mutual respect is one where both parties can thrive.
