Eyre Peninsula drivers supported by T-Ports

SOUTH Australia's latest player in the grain handling market has established a freight network to give work to Eyre Peninsula carriers year-round.

T-Ports has just kicked off its first harvest on the Eyre Peninsula, with its new grain receival and storage sites at Lock and Lucky Bay already taking in about 25,000 tonnes.

Grain received will be exported through T-Port's port facility at Lucky Bay.

The company will transport grain between its operations through a new partnership with local freight operators, titled the Eyre Peninsula Freight Group.

The group consists of a consortium of about 15 local freight companies with more than 40 trucks.

T-Ports general manager of operations Tim Gurney said by the company working with local freight operators through the partnership, the drivers would be able to get maximum use of their trucks year-round, increasing the value of their investment in heavy vehicles.
