Fresh from its manufacturing subsidiary launching the Rexx mining haulage truck, Bis Industries’ on-road haulage division has undertaken a fleet enhancement with 26 new Scania A-doubles delivered for its Whitehaven Coal Gunnedah operations.

The prime mover fleet rejuvenation was mooted in November 2018 upon sealing a three-year haulage contract extension for Whitehaven Coal’s Tarrawonga and Rocglen mines in New South Wales.

Bis notes the bespoke haulage solution provides greater payload capacity while reducing the number of prime movers, "delivering cost efficiencies and benefits to its customer", including reducing emissions and contributing to improved local road safety.

"[It] provides benefits for the community, including a reduction in one-way trips by 36 per cent (48,000 fewer vehicle movements on the road)," the company says.

Bis has serviced the Gunnedah operations since February 2014.
