One of the biggest transportation and logistics firms in Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ is Centurion. It operates throughout Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ’s northern states and was founded in 1971. With a sizable fleet of specialist vehicles, we can provide logistics for unusual and big loads in addition to transportation services and object storage. Centurion was able to handle the shipping of 14 Caterpillar 789C dump trucks because of its vast coverage in Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ.
From the port of Mackey in Queensland to the port of Port Hedland in Western Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ, the transportation was done by both land and sea. It was required to totally disassemble the trucks for this operation in order to adhere to traffic laws and prevent the creation of traffic. Before being put together and driven to their destination by road, all the components of each tipper truck were brought by water. Due to the enormous cargo, this task required vehicles as well as specialized and powerful trailers to meet the needs of the trip.
Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ’s Boral was established in Sydney in 1946. It dominates the Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀn cement and construction industries. An aggregate surface truck was unveiled in Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ by the building materials company Boral and the truck manufacturer Iveco. The Boral FMAS, or forward-moving aggregate spreader, will make it much easier to build roads in Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ using the spray seal technique. The technique often entails a highway crew spreading the aggregate using overhead dump trucks, which raises worker safety concerns.
To speed up distribution, the FMAS spreads the aggregate from the front of the vehicle using a spreader box and conveyor belt. Any possible roof and infrastructure ᴅᴀᴍᴀɢᴇ from things like impact with electricity wires, trees, and bridges is considerably reduced by the device. The truck has a maximum operational weight of 27,500 kg, a height of 3.4 meters above the top of the covering canvas, and a length of 11 meters. The truck’s highway speed, which can reach 7 km/h, is electronically tied to the aggregate dump rates. It is appropriate for aggregates measuring 4mm, 7mm, 10mm, and 14mm.
MLG Oz was established in 2002 and has offices in Kalgoorlie and Boulder, Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ. It offers a comprehensive set of services for on-site operational support. From bulk transportation, crushing and screening, supplying aggregates and sand, to export logistics, the company provides a variety of value-added services. The company used a 60m road train, which has undergone stringent safety inspections to be permitted to operate on public highways, for the transfer of soil and sand. This road train design also referred to as a “super-quad,” is distinctive due to its ability to transport up to 140 tons of freight. Compared to normal 53.5m road trains, these cutting-edge road trains offer increased safety and superior handling. Road trains will only be allowed to go at a maximum speed of 90 km/h, making it simpler to pass other cars.
