National logistics company, Primary Connect, has been busy moving 36,000 pallets of watermelons for Greenview Farms with the support of its transport partner, ABC Transport.
Every harvest season, Primary Connect plays a key role in the transportation of watermelons from Greenview Farms in the Douglas Daly region all the way to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
“The Northern Territory provides optimum conditions for growing melons with the season running from June to October,” Primary Connect said in a statement.
“Greenview Farms is expected to use 200 hectares of land to produce 12,000 tonnes of melons this season.”
In 1998, ABC Transport opened for business with one truck to service remote Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory, Western Australia and Pitjantjatjara Lands of South Australia. It has since grown – in 2020 the fleet had about 30 triple roadtrains traverse the Stuart Highway.
The Primary Connect supply chain business began in Australia in 2003 and has since committed to improving efficiencies and making safety a priority.
Earlier this year, Primary Connect announced it would be continuing its partnership with General Mills and Foodbank Australia for the third consecutive year on a special program to feed more vulnerable Australians.
