Sadleirs Global Logistics (Australia) was recently tasked with the movement of 2 locally manufactured Oil and Gas control rooms each measuring 28.5m L x 7.2m W x 4.5m H and weighing 108MT from Brisbane, Queensland to Karratha in Western Australia for our client Chevron.

This epic one-way journey of over 5800km across Australia through multiple states required extensive planning, right from the original route survey through to the operational co-ordination and communications. This was never going to be a simple move, with transport and transit approvals being required from some 227 individual municipalities along with arranging both private and police escorts, a max speed limit of 40km’s per hour, daytime movement and numerous obstacles to overcome with such a move.

However, the two transits also encountered localised flooding, extreme heat, frost (Yes, frost in Australia), numerous COVID-19 related tests and restrictions and worst of all the massive Aussie bushfires. We had it all…

The end result, despite these challenges;

Both control rooms delivered safely, efficiently and in perfect condition to a very satisfied customer.

Many thanks to our project partners Russells Transport and the entire Chevron Team.
