The new general manager of specialist transport provider CRT Group says the operator is well positioned to grow in 2010.

Speaking after his appointment yesterday, Richard Spall, says a number of initiatives implemented by the company last year will help it expand its operations.

"As industry begins to recover from the effects of the global financial crisis, CRT Group is well positioned to assist our customers who are looking to inject value into their supply chain," Spall says.

He says the movement of the company into new areas bolstered growth in 2009 and gave the company a firm platform to increase that in 2010.

"Some years ago, CRT identified opportunities to diversify its business to ensure sustainable growth. We are pleased to say that in 2009 we achieved significant growth in some of our non-traditional market segments, such as our increased presence in the food sector," Spall says.

"We announced our partnership with refined sugar products supplier Sugar Australia to provide bulk transport and logistics services throughout South Australia and Victoria from 1 June 2009, including the transport and distribution of over 5,000 tonnes of sugar from its refinery and depots to customers in those states per week."

Spall says CRT also recently partnered its sister company, ARG, to expand operations in the Western Australian region of Kwinana.

Spall believes this, plus the float of QR by the end of the year, will also help CRT grow its business. Queensland Rail owns CRT.
