Logistics Management From Pit to Port

Current mining trends show that global demand for metals and minerals are increasing with available grades decreasing and new deposits being deeper underground. This has driven an increase in the complexity and scale of drilling, blasting, earth moving and material handling equipment. Transportation and logistics of this specialised equipment requires specific expertise which Westlink can provide with dedicated project management teams. Our team will ensure safe delivery of this machinery and equipment as a priority with optimised delivery schedules another key driver to eliminate the risk of any downtime or production losses.


Some key specific capabilities that can be provided include:

  • International and domestic transportation of drilling rigs for exploration
  • Site delivery of earthmoving machinery and spares
  • Transportation of mine site infrastructure such as accommodation camps and power generation plant
  • Sensitive and robust handling techniques of equipment for drilling and blasting
  • International transportation of second hand earthmoving machinery with quarantine compliance
  • Extra-long pipe delivery to reduce setup time and costs for dewatering
  • Warehousing and inventory management for consumables and spares required for site operation
