Lindsay Australia and 2PH renew partnership


Lindsay Australia receives a boost with the return of farming giant 2PH

By Michael House

Queensland transport company Lindsay Australia has received a boost with a return to production of one of its major clients, Emerald farming giant 2PH.

2PH, which is considered a leader in the citrus fruit market, was put out of production after a crippling bout of Citrus Canker forced it to destroy over 250,000 trees.

But four years later, and with 200,000 new trees given the all clear from the disease, Lindsay will today begin transporting produce for one of their oldest clients.

Lindsay Australia General Manager Glenn Lindsay tells ATN that having 2PH back on board is bound to benefit the company.

"Both companies suffered a lot [during 2PH’s recovery] and it’s been a long five years," Lindsay says.

"When 2PH is in full production they’ve got a million cartons to harvest over a six month period- that’s approximately a hundred cartons per pallet- it’s a lot of pallets and a lot of trucks."

Craig Pressler from 2PH Farms says he is confident of getting back to the top of the industry and says Lindsay will be with the company all the way.

"We have an association with Lindsays that goes back over 35 years," Pressler says.

"Lindsay will be moving all of our produce, they are our supplier of choice, they are the people that can do the job for us and we are very happy with the association we have with them.

"There will be many trucks moving our produce and when we get back into he market fully there will be six, eight or ten a day."
