The services to be provided will include customs clearance, wharf collections of import commodities, warehousing, road transport, airfreight, and courier services.

Centurion will utilise its national road network to consolidate freight in North Queensland, including through its Townsville branch, complemented by dedicated daily services to Century and the Karumba port.

A dedicated road train fleet will 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.

Centurion CEO Justin Cardaci said he was looking forward to supporting New Century on a national scale.

"Centurion's end-to-end logistics solutions, proprietary tracking systems, and nationwide branch network enable us to tailor and adapt to [New Century's] specific requirements and provide visibility through out every step of the service," he said.

The contract will start in around February next year.
