Macknsons Open New Pilbara Depot

Posted on 25 August 2020

Western Australia’s premier regional transport provider Macknsons has opened a new dedicated distribution centre in Port Hedland to offer dedicated mine site transport.

The new Pilbara depot will enable even greater storage and processing capabilities for regional clients, especially those with technical and mining equipment transport requirements.

“The Pilbara itself represents more than 70 per cent of mineral and energy production in Western Australia and with our mining sector expertise, our new transport depot will benefit those who are moving equipment between sites or storing assets in situ, or during site refurbishments,” commented Macknsons’ Managing Director Peter McDougall.

Whether that equipment is critical to a mine site’s construction, administration or general operations, Macknsons have the routes and storage facilities in place to move goods safely and efficiently across Western Australia. There’s no third-party handling in our regional transport model. We have done the groundwork to ensure every corner of this state is accessible, and have gained pre-authorised access to almost every major mining hub.

“We made it our mission to deliver a low cost, door-to-door transport service in the Pilbara, overcoming the many struggles that can come with transportation and delivery on mining sites. We listen to our clients and focus on reducing their site operating costs by doing every job better than they previously experienced. This starts with reviewing site requirements from the ground up, better communication, structured rates, and total installation solutions,” said McDougall.
