Committed to serving regional Queensland

In 1971, two Australian stevedoring companies amalgamated, and Northern Stevedoring Services (NSS) was born.

We are a private company jointly owned by Glencore Xstrata and Qube. These shareholders bring significant experience from the mining and stevedoring industries to NSS operations.

Headquartered in Townsville, Queensland with operations spanning all of regional Queensland’s major Port facilities including Gladstone, Mackay, Townsville, Cairns and Weipa, NSS is best known for what it does—stevedoring and integrated supply chain management for ocean cargos—all in a hassle-free manner.

NSS is the only stevedoring, transport and logistics organisation in regional Queensland. Our approach is integrated, with all supply chain management solutions managed by one company ensuring that you receive cost efficiencies across the entire supply chain. As a customer-centric organisation, our people are well trained to cater for your every need, from 'ship to shore, shore to door'.

NSS is proud of its commitment to regional Queensland and its investment in state of the art facilities. We remain focused on setting the benchmark for the delivery of solutions and innovating in areas of stevedoring, transport and logistics efficiencies across every aspect of a company's supply chain. Our investment in technology, transport and equipment is only surpassed by our investment in our people. For over 40 years, NSS has been the number one regional stevedoring and supply chain management company servicing companies all over the globe.
