By Michael House

Linfox has increased its contract with timber giant Carter Holt Harvey (CHH) to include new a new route in southeast Queensland.

Linfox will now be responsible for transporting more than 60,000 tonnes of timber in the region after expanding its route services to include the Caboolture Sawmill, which is about 40 minutes north of Brisbane.

The transport and logistics company also has contracts with CHH’s particle board plant and its Port of Brisbane warehouse.

Linfox says the new operation stems from CHH’s purchase of the Weyerhaeuser Group’s Australian timber projects in August last year.

Linfox Group Manager for CHH Stephen McCall says his company has invested in a dedicated fleet for the operations in the region .

"Our team and the CHH supply chain team have been working very closely together to continually refine the distribution network," McCain says.

"The result [of the expansion] is that we are now more effectively utilising the fleet across one of the busiest timber markets in Australia".

Linfox’s relationship with CHH extends all over Australia and New Zealand, ranging from transportation of logs to delivering loads of completed building products.
