Linfox is being trusted by large resource industry customers to design and manage logistics solutions in the resource rich regions of Queensland.
Linfox’s dedicated Mining Services team has forged several partnerships that support customer mining operations in the state’s Bowen Basin, an area covering around 60,000 square kilometres.
These include seven Buma Mining sites, Coronado Global Resources’ Curragh mine in Blackwater and Idemitsu’s Ensham Resources mine in Emerald.
“Mining logistics is a complex business, relied upon by an industry that is a substantial Australian economic contributor and local employer,” said President Resources and Industrial Linfox, Gary Pyne.
“Linfox’s specialist services provide the confidence that customer freight will be transported to regional and remote sites safely, securely, on time and in full.
“This minimises costly disruptions, frees customers to focus on their core business, and employs team members who understand the local area and industry,” explained Gary.
With a deep understanding and strong network in the Bowen Basin and Hunter Valley coalfields, and northwest Queensland hard rock markets, Linfox has a long history of trusted transport services to major mining customers across both surface and underground operations.
“The team seamlessly connects goods from OEMs, suppliers and vendors to their resources and industrial customers,” explained Gary.
“From mine site construction, delivery and disassembly of large scale equipment and major project infrastructure, the team manages freight of all sizes – these could be small vehicle parts, giant compressor modules or underground machinery,” he said.
Services include general and urgent freight, heavy haulage, turnkey logistics project services including longwall and shutdown logistics, site‑specific construction logistics, 24/7 emergency breakdown logistics and bulk commodity haulage. Linfox offers full 24/7 fast-response priority service managed by a dedicated, single point of contact.
“Our strength is built on the depth of our network, safe fleet and most of all – our expert people,” said Gary.
