The mining industry in Australia plays a critical role in everyday life in supplying all the minerals critical to life today like Iron Ore, Coal and Aluminium. As the Australian mining industry continues to grow, the earthmoving industry also continues to grow and evolve. After all, the mining sector needs earthmoving equipment in order to function. This earthmoving equipment includes hydraulic excavators, loaders, bulldozers, dump trucks, cranes, and drilling tools, to name a few. Some mining logistics are also dependent on specialty design of logistics and storage equipment designed for the mining sector, such as steel cages and drilling tool baskets.   

What is Design Logistics? 

Design Logistics is the design of systems or equipment that solve complex storage and transport challenges. Sometimes called Design for Logistics, these speciallydesigned systems achieve class-leading safety and achieve important goals in the mining sector including large production through-put, cost-effectiveness and a reduced environmental footprint.

This “specialty” storage and transport equipment is designed so you can have your “thing where you need it, when you need it, the way you need it.”

 

Importance of Logistics for Mining and Earthmoving 

The mining sector is a complex industry where the stakes are high and safety is of utmost importance. But the logistics chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and if the equipment that mines need isn’t transported and stored safely it can cause incidents to occur which can incur large WH&S and Chain of Responsibility non-compliance fines. Logistics doesn’t just include heavy equipment, but also the systems and equipment that solve storage and transporting complexities. Thus, the implementation of speciallydesigned logistics equipment is essential in the mining and earthmoving industry to improve safety and create efficiencies not previously possible with more primitive methods.
