Collaboration and integration: creating value in supply chains

Rail services

4 March 2013 - There is a strong case that the collaboration of users in the supply chain, complemented by the integration of the supply chain, can create the best of both worlds.

Alex Pey, Heavy Haul Rail Leader at Aurecon, will be sharing insights on how to optimise your supply chain at Mining IQ's sixth annual Mining Export Infrastructure conference.

Trends in the mining industry mean the viability of resource projects requires robust export infrastructure and reduced operational costs. So irrespective of the extent or state of the infrastructure, mining companies need to undertake significant up-front capital investment before they can build or expand their mines and transport their products. Alex’s presentation will focus on export infrastructure development for coal and will cover:

  • Effective coordination and logistics planning between parties 
  • Structuring and organising for an efficient supply chain 
  • Minimising capital expenditure through collaboration
  • Collaboration versus single user control

The Mining Export Infrastructure conference will focus on strategies to minimise new infrastructure costs, but more importantly, optimise current supply and logistics chains. It will take place at the Traders Hotel, in Brisbane, from 4 - 7 March 2013.

Aurecon has a proven history in pit to port infrastructure, with global expertise in the planning, design and construction management of world-class material handling facilities and supporting infrastructure.
