Logistics provider Centurion has won a multi-year contract worth about $25 million to provide logistics support for the Century mine in the lower Gulf region and its Karumba port facilities.
The services to be provided will include customs clearance, wharf collections of import commodities, warehousing, road transport, airfreight, and courier services.
Centurion said a dedicated road train fleet would be engaged with a mix of trailing equipment to cater for the safe and efficient transportation of bulk reagents, general freight and grinding media, all of which is required for the daily operations of the mine and port facility.
The New Century Resources-operated mine at Lawn Hill, 250km north-west of Mount Isa, produces zinc concentrate and exports via Karumba.
Centurion chief executive officer Justin Cardaci said he was looking forward to working with the teams at Century and Karumba and providing a service that delivered on surety of supply.
Centurion will commence operations around February 2021.
