Logistics provider DB Schenker has been awarded a logistics contract worth AUD590 million by Chevron Australia to transport material and equipment on a global basis for the Gorgon Project.

The international and domestic Australian Integrated Logistics Services (ILS) contract for the Barrow Island LNG Plant runs for four years, and it is anticipated that materials in excess of two million freight tonnes will be moved to module fabrication yards in Asia and/or directly to Australia.

The Gorgon Project is Australia's largest resources project to date, with a capex of AUD43 billion.

Says Ron Koehler, CEO Schenker Australia Pty Ltd, "Already we have in place a core project team, whose numbers will be growing significantly following the commencement of operations on the 15th of September 2009."

The company has undertaken significant investment in purpose-built state-of-the-art logistics facilities across Australia, including its recently opened "Green Terminal" at Melbourne Airport. In NSW, integrating rail into intermodal transport concepts has been implemented, with a new logistics centre located at the Yennora railway hub.

A new facility in Perth is the latest addition giving the logistics provider a strong presence in Australia. Across the states, DB Schenker now provides more than 100,000 sqm warehouse space for customers from all industries.
