Agility and Linfox Logistics have formed an alliance to focus on providing logistics solutions to major oil, gas and mining projects, primarily in remote areas of Australia.
The two companies already provide logistics services to the massive Gorgon gas field development in Western Australia, with Agility as the lead logistics provider and Linfox providing specialised transport and warehouse services. A joint office in Gladstone in Queensland has been established to seek logistics opportunities as the region's resources industry continues to develop.
Agility's CEO Australasia and North Asia, Mick Turnbull said, "The two companies will leverage their combined expertise to provide supply chain solutions to major projects in the oil, gas and mining sectors. We look forward to supporting major resources projects in remote regions."
