Centurion says it has been awarded a multi-year contract by Century Mining Ltd (CML) to provide logistics support, servicing the Century zinc mine and Karumba Port facilities in north Queensland, Australia.
The services to be provided will include customs clearance, wharf collections of import commodities, warehousing, road transport, air freight, and courier services.
Centurion will use a national road network to consolidate freight in north Queensland (including through Centurion’s Townsville branch), complemented by dedicated daily services to the Century Mine and Karumba Port, it said. A dedicated road train fleet will be engaged with a mix of trailing equipment to cater for the safe and efficient transportation of bulk reagents, general freight and grinding media, all of which is required for the daily operations of the mine and port facility.
CML, a wholly-owned subsidiary of New Century Resources, operates the Century Mine, extracting zinc concentrate, and Karumba Port facility to undertake export transfer of bulk concentrate to key customers globally.
Centurion CEO, Justin Cardaci, said: “We are excited to support CML on a national scale. Centurion’s end-to-end logistics solutions, proprietary tracking systems, and nationwide branch network enable us to tailor and adapt to CML’s specific requirements and provide visibility through out every step of the service.”
Centurion will commence operations around February 2021.
