“Servicing the Gulf and Beyond”

GULF-MAP[1]

 

Currently we have a Barge for servicing the Gulf Islands of :

We have a fleet of trucks that run from  Cairns to Karumba. Our trucks do not service towns along the way, they are for the sole purpose of unloading in Karumba for the Barge to the Islands.
Called The Torres Venture, the Barge has an 18.9m long deck space, and 8m wide. Being able to carry up to 110 tonnes of freight. In July 2013, we had a larger barge join our fleet, called the Carpentaria Venture. This has a 180 tonne capacity.
