Flinders Logistics won the Australian Shipping & Maritime Industry Award for Environmental Transport at a special event in Melbourne on 21 November 2013. This latest award is national kudos for the Port Adelaide logistics specialist that prides itself in delivering safe and environmentally sound transport solutions to the mining sector.
Andrew Pellizzari, General Manager of Flinders Logistics said, “When it comes to environmental management, our approach is one of continuous improvement. Gaining national recognition by winning this prestigious environmental accolade is a great privilege.”
Flinders Logistics’ national success follows accomplishments in the company’s home state. Earlier this year, the logistics business secured the Premier’s Award for Excellence in Environmental Management and SafeWork SA’s award for “Best Solution to an Identified Workplace Health & Safety Issue”. The company was a finalist in both the dust control and the best practice in work health & safety categories at the Australian Bulk Handling Awards. The innovative logistics provider also made the shortlist for the Safe Transport section at the Australian Shipping & Maritime Industry Awards.
“Finding transport solutions that enable the environmental, safety and economic goals of customers, employees and local communities to align will create a sustainable future for bulk handling in Australia. For our business and our customers, it has been a win-win,” said Mr Pellizzari.
