National logistics provider Centurion has secured a long-term contract with a major partner.
This week it confirmed its relationship with minerals and metals company South32 would be expanded under a new agreement that would see it provide integrated logistics for the Cannington Mine and the Townsville Port facility in Northern Queensland.
In addition, Centurion has also solidified and extended its existing partnership with South32 by renewing its service contracts with the company’s Worsley Alumina mine in Western Australia and the Groote Eylandt Mining Company Operation (GEMCO) in the Northern Territory.
As part of the new Cannington contract, Centurion is providing general road freight, air freight, heavy haulage, and hotshots services.
These services provide South32 with national coverage into the miner’s Northern Queensland consolidation points, as well as delivery to the Cannington Mine site and the Company’s port facility.
Centurion has been providing South32 with road freight, air freight, off site receipting and specialised road transport services since 2018.
Centurion CEO, Justin Cardaci said Centurion and South32 had in four years developed a strong relationship.
“South32 possesses an in-depth understanding of the quality of the logistics services Centurion provides through our existing business relationship in WA and the Northern Territory, so we are extremely pleased to expand that relationship to the east coast with the Cannington Mine and the Townsville Port facility,” he said in a statement.
“The extension of our existing contracts is a great validation of the quality and efficiency of Centurion’s integrated logistics offering,” said Cardaci.
“We have worked well collaboratively with South32 over the years to provide enhanced end to end supply chain visibility and the extension and expansion is a testament to that working relationship.”
