Transportation & Shipping Studies

We are leading designers and planners of transportation and logistics systems for mining products and the movement of other bulk commodities.

Our studies range from early concept development to detailed feasibility, including projects for the handling of materials ranging from run of mine (ROM) and direct shipped ore (DSO) to concentrates and finished products.

We recognise the importance of considering the entire logistics system from source to destination, and we use our global agility and willingness to challenge design boundaries to deliver customised solutions in ever changing markets.

In addition to our experience and capability in the design of multi-cargo bulk terminal facilities, we offer a full range of transportation modes as part of our in-house services to ensure that the overall logistics chain for both outbound and inbound cargo provides the best value to our clients. These include:

  • Heavy haul rail and truck transport systems
  • Overland conveying systems including aerial cable supported conveyor systems
  • Slurry pipeline transportation
  • Barging and transhipment
  • Containerized bulk handling systems

Whether these technologies are applied on their own or in combination with other modes, we provide integrated transportation logistics systems that work holistically with both the upstream supply chain and the downstream terminal facilities.
