Centurion reports it has landed a multi-year contract to provide road and air freight services to South32’s Groote Eylandt Mining Company operation (Gemco).

Located in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Gemco will gain end-to-end supply chain visibility through Centurion’s integrated logistics solutions platform.

Centurion will also implement quarantine and biosecurity measures to support and protect the Groote Eylandt ecosystem.

"We’re very pleased to extend our relationship with South32 to include Gemco and we look forward to providing them with safe and reliable supply chain solutions," Centurion CEO Justin Cardaci says.

"This is an exciting partnership and an important part will be working with South32 to improve supply chain visibility through deploying our existing technology and developing new integrated technologies that support operations."

As part of the contract, Centurion is operating an off-site receipting facility at its new Darwin supply base where it will inspect, consolidate and package freight destined for the mine.

Centurion moved into the transport and supply base facility at 23 Nebo Road, East Arm, close to Darwin Port, in October.

The secured facility comprises 1,600 square metres of warehouse capacity and 6000sqm of hardstand.

The supply base is capable of dispatching and accepting triple road train combinations, Centurion says.
