GrainGrowers has partnered with the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) to host free workshops on the ‘Chain of Responsibility’ to help growers understand their legal obligations under updated heavy vehicle transport safety laws. The laws and regulations can sometimes be confusing, so these practical workshops have been designed specifically for grower questions to be answered.
The Barnawartha COR workshop will be followed by an on-site tour of the SCT rail terminal at the Logic Centre Barnawartha. In 1974 Peter Smith established SCT Logistics, an Australian owned and operated multi-modal transport and logistics company. SCT transports containers from Barnawartha to Perth, Brisbane, and the Port of Melbourne.
SCT commenced its first service in October of 2016. SCT owns and operate train services. Trains go through to Brisbane and “Bolt on” to Port. SCT has the ability to handle palletised freight, container loads, and refrigerated containers as well as store ambient and refrigerated containers.
There will also be a tour of the Formula Forage Site where grain is packed into containers bound for the Port of Melbourne
