Northern Stevedoring Services (NSS) has acquired S Colborne Equipment Hire in bid to provide more comprehensive services.

NSS General Manager Todd Emmert says the multi-million acquisition is the perfect fit for the company’s expansion plans.

"S Colborne Equipment Hire has been working with NSS for the past 10 years and we see the acquisition as being instrumental in providing a quality end-to-end stevedoring service to our clients," he says.

The collaboration will allow NSS to service clients with managing processes from stevedoring right through to warehousing and delivery.

"By having total ownership of our mobile equipment fleet, the acquisition has the potential to help NSS realise savings, reduce down time and increase productivity," Emmert says.

"Our intention is to diversify the hire business into off-wharf opportunities."

NSS has headquarters in Townsville and operates across the major regional Queensland ports of Townsville, Cairns, Mackay and Gladstone.

Formed in 1971, it is the only integrated stevedoring and supply chain services solution within the region.
