Transport Logistics: Vital for Australia’s Oil & Gas

The oil and gas industry in Australia is a vital part of the country’s economy, contributing billions of dollars each year and employing thousands of people. However, it is not just the extraction of these resources that keeps the industry moving; transport logistics is critical in ensuring that equipment and supplies reach their intended destinations.

Simply, the industry could not function without efficient and dependable transportation logistics. Transport logistics involves the planning, execution and control of the movement of goods and equipment from one location to another. This includes the transportation of rigs, mobile camps, general freight transport and stores, fuel and water, waste and septic removal and refrigerated goods and food delivery.

Wild Desert is one company that is at the forefront of transport logistics in the Australian oil and gas industry. With our custom-fitted and purpose-built trucks and equipment, experienced drivers and dedication to safety and efficiency, we play an important role in keeping the industry moving. Here’s how.

Transporting Rigs & Camps

The movement of rigs and mobile camps is one of the most critical aspects of transport logistics in the oil and gas industry. These are massive pieces of equipment that are frequently located in remote areas and transporting them to their destinations can be a complex process. General freight transport is a critical component of the global supply chain, facilitating the movement of goods from manufacturers to retailers and consumers. The Wild Desert transport team has extensive experience moving rigs and camps in a safe and efficient manner, using custom-fitted trucks and equipment designed specifically for this purpose. This ensures that the equipment arrives at the job site in the best possible condition, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.

Fuel & Water Delivery

The delivery of fuel and water is another crucial part of transport logistics in the oil and gas industry. These are critical resources for keeping operations running smoothly, particularly in remote areas where access to these resources may be limited. The transport team at Wild Desert is well-equipped to handle fuel and water delivery, with the ability to transport large quantities of these resources safely and efficiently.

Waste & Septic Removal

The oil and gas industry generates a significant amount of waste and requires the removal of septic waste. Proper waste and septic removal are essential to ensure the safety and health of workers and the environment. Wild Desert’s transport team is equipped to handle waste and septic removal, with the necessary equipment and expertise to ensure that waste is transported safely and disposed of responsibly.

Refrigerated Goods & Food Delivery

Finally, transportation logistics is crucial in delivering refrigerated goods and food to the oil and gas industry. This is especially important for workers in remote locations who rely on regular deliveries of food and other supplies. Wild Desert’s transportation team is well-equipped to handle refrigerated goods and food delivery, with the necessary equipment and expertise to ensure that food and other perishable items arrive in the best possible condition.
