Certified mining and technical equipment transportation

Specialising in technical equipment transport for the resources sector, Macknsons is a trusted partner of explorers, suppliers and contractors across Western Australia—offering reliable, tailored solutions to ensure your sensitive mining and resource freight is delivered on-time and on-budget.

Tell us where, and we’ll make it happen—no job is too remote or out of scope

From the deep south-west to the farthest crevices of the State’s north-east, the roads of Western Australia are our home, and we’ve done the ground work to ensure every corner is accessible. Macknsons are preauthorised to access almost every major mining hub in Western Australia, including Rio Tinto, BHP and Fortescue Metals Group.

Our rough-terrain vehicles are fitted with up-to-the-minute safety equipment and our personnel receive comprehensive training to meet the multi-variate compliance requirements of each site.

    Remote premises offer exceptional time efficiencies for regional customers

    From August 2020 onwards, Macknsons will have its own dedicated depot in Port Hedland, the gateway to the Pilbara’s mineral rich resource hub, which represents more than 70 per cent of mineral and energy production in Western Australia.

    In addition to Macknsons’ flagship depot in Forrestdale, the Port Hedland premises will enable greater storage and processing capabilities for Macknsons’ regional mining clients—who often need to transport a variety of sensitive equipment between sites or store them temporarily during site refurbishments and IT upgrades.
