CRT swoops on Sugar Australia deal


CRT confirms deal with Sugar Australia, agreeing to carry more than 5,000 tonnes of sugar a week

Transport and logistics operator CRT has confirmed a deal with Sugar Australia, agreeing to carry more than 5,000 tonnes of sugar a week.

CRT, a subsidiary of Queensland Rail (QR), this week began carting products to Sugar Australia’s refineries, depots and customers throughout South Australia and Victoria.

The company was awarded the contract on the back of its supply chain operations, with CRT Group Chief Executive Cameron Dunn saying the operator has the ability to meet Sugar Australia’s needs.

"Given the instability of the global economy, it is now more important than ever for companies to ensure that they have a clear strategy for managing their supply chain to drive out costs and deliver sustainable outcomes," Dunn says.

Chief Executive of Sugar Australia Tim Hart says the deal will help the company maintain its market share because of CRT’s storage options and ability to bulk deliver sugar.

CRT and Sugar Australia worked together in 2006, when they collaborated on transporting refined sugar in bulk from Sugar Australia’s plant in Yarraville in Victoria to Perth.
