This chapter explores the administrative structure of the port, and its profitability as it varied over the twentieth century. It examines the evolution of the Fremantle Harbour Trust into the Fremantle Port Authority. Tull cites the problem of over-staffing and over-investment as core factors in the late twentieth century decline of the port, but claims the microeconomic reform of the authority transformed it into an industrious, commercial, and customer focussed organisation, well equipped to handle the port and its future needs throughout the subsequent century.
