About Us

Carpentaria Freight Services is the Sister company to Gulf Engineering and Constructions Pty Ltd in Karumba. Carpentaria Freight is a family owned business that started the freight service to the Gulf of Carpentaria Islands of Mornington, Sweers and Bentinick back in 2008. The founder/owner has been raised in the region and understands the needs and service required for the communities, and is fully committed to providing this.

Gulf Engineering and Constructions Pty Ltd has been providing a fuel distribution service to the region for many years, and diversified the business to incorporate a Barge service for freight. This is where Carpentaria Freight was born.

In November 2009, Carpentaria Freight set up their depot in Cairns to assist in the coordination of customer’s freight. This has been immensely successful in minimising charges and damages to customers goods. Being situated in Cairns, the depot can coordinate freight from Brisbane, Mt.Isa and Cairns to Mornington, Sweers and Bentinick Islands.

July 2013, The Carpentaria Group acquired a new barge we now call the CARPENTARIA VENTURE, a bigger sister of our current Barge the TORRES VENTURE. This will assist in larger loads being delivered as required.
