Flood damage to Rocklea depot and vehicles being assessed

Lindsay Australia has relocated its head office to Acacia Ridge while the owners of its office building and depot assess flood damage, the trucking and horticulture company said yesterday.

Head office operations will be "slightly impaired" but its national transport office has not been affected.

Its Rocklea transport depot has seen damage to the building, while office equipment, workshop equipment and coldrooms have been damaged, lost or destroyed.

Lindsay says it has comprehensive insurance for vehicles including prime movers, trailers, rigid trucks and forklifts, some of which were inundated.

Less than 2 percent of its prime movers and trailers have been affected in a fleet that comprises about 200 prime movers.

"In respect of the transport division, the group last year has significantly increased its operations in North Queensland," Company Secretary Graham Johnston says.

"North Queensland has not been significantly impacted by the recent weather events."
