Centurion wins GEMCO award

  • Posted on Thursday 8th, November 2018.

Transport and logistics operator, Centurion, has been awarded a multi-year contract to provide road and air freight services to South32’s Groote Eylandt Mining Company operation (GEMCO), located on an island in the Gulf of Carpentaria.

As part of the contract award Centurion is operating an off-site receipting facility at its new Darwin supply base where it will inspect, consolidate and package freight destined for the mine.

GEMCO will be provided with enhanced end to end supply chain visibility through adopting Centurion’s advanced integrated logistics solutions platform.

The contract also requires Centurion to implement significant quarantine and bio security measures throughout their operations to support and protect the delicate eco system of Groote Eylandt.

Centurion CEO, Justin Cardaci, said the business had recently reinvested in a new Darwin facility which would be pivotal in providing the services for GEMCO.

“We’re very pleased to extend our relationship with South32 to include GEMCO and we look forward to providing them with safe and reliable supply chain solutions,” said Cardaci.

“This is an exciting partnership and an important part will be working with South32 to improve supply chain visibility through deploying our existing technology and developing new integrated technologies that support operations.”

Centurion started transport and logistics operations for GEMCO on 1 November this year.

Last month, Centurion established a new Darwin transport and supply base facility at 23 Nebo Road, East Arm.

The new site is close to the port to service local industry and includes 1600-square-metres of warehouse capacity and 6000-square-metres of hardstand.

Centurion’s supply base is capable of dispatching and accepting triple road train combinations and is located in close proximity to Berrimah Road, Tiger Brennan Drive and the Stuart Highway allowing ease of access in and out of Darwin.

The facility is the staging point for a comprehensive local transport service offering courier pickup and delivery services, port collection and delivery, and freight consolidation services.
