Northline defies sluggish economy to meet growing demand for its services in the Northern Territory

October 5, 2009

National logisitics operator Northline has defied the sluggish economy as demand grows for its its Northern Territory operations.

The company is set to deliver its one millionth tonne of freight to Alice Springs later this year and Northline manager Darryl Wilson expects the the figure to keep increasing.

"Despite the global financial crisis, we are experiencing record demand for our freight and logistics services, especially to the Northern Territory," Wilson says.

"It’s a great demonstration of how Northline has succeeded in providing Alice Springs businesses with credible cost effective freight services since 1983."

Northline, which employs 15 people in Alice Springs since beginning operations in the region 26 years ago, has as many as 40 trucks coming into town each week.

The company also operates a pick-up and delivery fleet around the town and runs a warehousing service.
