Bulk transport - Aurecon

Bringing integrated freight systems to life

Bulk transport

Helping freight businesses optimise the supply chain

Working in a dynamic and constantly evolving market, bulk commodity business owners have their focus on optimising the transport supply chain by remaining flexible and agile.

At Aurecon, we understand that efficient and cost effective solutions sought for new and existing bulk transport infrastructure and operations (including the intermodal handling facilities) need to be integrated, reliable, innovative, as well as agile to accommodate constantly evolving technology.

The solutions must also provide a level of redundancy to match each clients’ specific requirements. They also need to align with global environmental and safety standards. With a history of experience delivering bulk transport projects across the full project lifecycle, we have the know-how to meet this challenge.

Is the idea of green freight full of hot air?
