Trans­port com­pany rolls out new out­post

Pilbara News - - News - Sophia Con­stan­tine

A Pil­bara lo­gis­tics com­pany has ex­panded its op­er­a­tions to Port Hed­land with the launch of a new fa­cil­ity.

James and Sarah Ste­wart Lo­gis­tics started op­er­at­ing in Kar­ratha 13 years ago and has grown from two trucks to a fleet of more than 30 prime movers and 90 trail­ers and dol­lies.

Apart from its branch in Kar­ratha, JSS also has a branch in Perth and pro­vides ser­vices through­out the metropoli­tan area, Pil­bara, Kimberley and greater WA.

The fam­ily-owned busi­ness, which trans­ports any­thing from small pack­ages to 80-tonne heavy haul­ing, has been awarded a twoyear lease in Port Hed­land.

Long-time Kar­ratha res­i­dent and JSS Lo­gis­tics man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Sarah Ste­wart said the new fa­cil­ity, based on Har­well Way in Wedge­field, would make it more con­ve­nient for cus­tomers in the re­gion and more com­pet­i­tive for ex­ist­ing providers.

“We have iden­ti­fied through our cus­tomers that there was a re­quire­ment for a trans­port com­pany at a com­pet­i­tive rate in Port Hed­land,” Mrs Ste­wart said.

“It is an op­por­tu­nity to be able to store freight, as well as ser­vice cus­tomers in Kar­ratha that we have been ser­vic­ing for the last 10 years.”
