The already close relationship between Agility Logistics and Linfox has been further strengthened in the resources logistics field, with a joint venture formed in Queensland and headquartered in Gladstone.

The companies already work closely in supporting Chevron’s Gorgon gas project in Western Australia, clocking up 1000 linehaul trips up to August after the three-year deal was struck late last year.

They linked in July, when Agility Shipping was formed to service Bell Bay and became the third option for Linfox in its Bass Strait trade; Linfox uses SeaRoad and TT-Line for Devonport cargo.

"We have a strong working relationship with Agility and I believe our strategic alliance will help support Australian resource development as well as opportunities overseas in the future," Linfox Resources President Peter Stokes says.

For Gorgon, Agility is the lead logistics provider and Linfox provides specialised transport and warehouse services.

The alliance is a vote of confidence in Queensland as the focus of greater project development.

"The two companies will leverage their combined expertise to provide supply chain solutions to major projects in the oil, gas and mining sectors," Agility Australasia and North Asia CEO Mick Turnbull says.

"We look forward to supporting major resources projects in remote regions."
