October 15, 2010

CRT Group has landed a multi-million dollar contract with Australian Vinyls Corporation (AV) on the back of its logistics operations.

The Queensland Rail subsidiary has signed a five-year agreement with plastics and chemicals supplier AV as the primary contractor for its bulk domestic and international containerised freight and distribution requirements.

Australian Vinyls manufactures PVC resins and wood-plastic composites, with the company’s Laverton plant in Victoria producing 140,000 tonnes of PVC annually.

AV General Manager David Cooper says CRT’s bulk transport experience and a proven ability to deliver quality and flexible services won it the contract.

"Reliability and continuous improvement is critical to our logistics function and we are pleased to be continuing our relationship with CRT as part of our supply chain," Cooper says.

The deal extends CRT’s relationship with AV, which CRT General Manager Richard Spall says has spanned 20 years.

"We are extremely pleased to be able to continue our relationship and provide AV with commercially flexible solutions, which deliver efficiencies to their supply chain," he says.

Spall says the business is committed to delivering innovative and sustainable supply chain solutions to cement its position in the marketplace.

Employing 300 staff nationally, Spall says CRT transports one million tonnes of freight per annum for domestic and international plastic and chemicals suppliers.
