Northern Stevedoring expands into Gladstone
A recent berthing issue for the largest privately owned cotton merchandiser in the world, Dunavant Enterprises, led to NSS providing a fast and efficient solution for the company and further cementing its dominance in flexible stevedoring services.
Unable to complete a bulk unloading at Barney Point, Dunavant’s product had to be moved to the Grain Corporations berth and unloaded using 28 metre skips allowing for 100 tonne an hour to be stevedored.
“The successful completion of the recent Dunavants job highlights how efficiently NSS is able to identify solutions for companies that are berthing in Gladstone and our can-do attitude to often problem situations,” said Todd Emmert, General Manager, NSS.
“We see Gladstone as being pertinent to our growth plans and as a company we will continue to look to this market as being pivotal in showcasing NSS competitive advantage as regional Queensland’s largest stevedoring service.
“Dunavants was restricted and unable to complete a bulk unload, and most probably would have lost money if we had not been able to complete the job.”
NSS has experienced high growth in the past 12 months and this may be largely attributed to clients who are demanding a fast and reliable stevedoring workforce, in which NSS is able to accommodate.
“As the largest stevedoring company in regional Queensland, we are pleased to be able to employ so many locals who are experienced in stevedoring to work for our company,” confirmed Mr Emmert.
“Our aim is to expand our workforce and create new jobs for locals in the Gladstone region.”
