Western Australian haulage firm MGM Bulk has lauded a recent controlled waste contract acquisition that enabled it to expand its warehousing footprint and diversify its fleet.

"This is one of the largest controlled waste transport services that commenced in May 2019 and it has been a smooth transfer for all involved," a company spokesperson tells ATN.

"As part of our overall strategy we align ourselves with customers that seek long-term contracts, which fits our business model and expertise.

"The controlled waste opportunity fitted this long-term model and it also allowed us to operate out of our existing depot in Bunbury, which has existing operational, maintenance, HSEQ [health safety, environment and quality] and administration support functions."

Subsequently, the Bunbury storage hub is set to double in size from 12,000 square metres to 23,000 by July this year.

The company also has a Wedgefield depot in Port Hedland under construction, and another earmarked for the future in Narngulu, Geraldton.

"It also allowed us to diversify our fleet - which already includes side tippers, end tippers, flat tops, tautliners, etc. - by adding purpose-built tanker trailers," the company adds.

Since starting in March 2014, MGM Bulk’s fleet has grown to nearly 100 trucks, with the milestone vehicle to be delivered in September 2019.
