About Great Northern Logistics

about_us_gnl_header

I am proud to introduce Great Northern Logistics as a full service Logistics Company based in Broome servicing the Pilbara and Kimberley regions. I started this company after many years of experiencing frustrations with the lack of reliability of the logistics industry. On many occasions the nature of the service provided resulted in not only added cost to work but also contributed to schedule issues which in many respects have a more detrimental effect on projects.

In 2014 I was fortunate enough to be able to commence Great Northern Logistics. The overarching aim of the company is to change the way industry is supported in the region through the delivery of quality services with the benefit of local experience and expertise. Today Great Northern logistics provides skip bin hire, scaffold, temporary fencing hire, plant hire and the collection of Controlled Waste & Dangerous Goods such as sewage.

Great Northern Logistics is a part of the H&M Tracey group of companies, with over 52 direct employees. As a majority indigenous owned company, with Supply Nation accreditation, we boast over 20 indigenous employees. We are proud of the fact that we have trained over 12 indigenous apprentices which remain with the company to this day.

As a locally based company, with all decision making done in the region, we have the ability to respond to market conditions quickly. Our expanding fleet is a representation of confidence which the market has placed in the service we provide.

I along with everyone at Great Northern Logistics and the broader H&M Tracey group of companies are proud to be able bring quality services to the region and look forward to our continued work with valued clients.
