Getting the job done | Mining equipment transport solutions

Carter Heavy Haulage


When G&C Hannah Transport needed assistance transporting mining equipment from Newcastle to a mine site in Port Hedland in WA, experience told them to look no further than our team.

Having been referred to us in the past and impressed by the ease in which we make things happen, G&C Hannah Office Manager, Kylie Bassula said we were the right fit for the job.

“This job was a big one, but we had confidence in the team at Carter Heavy Haulage to get it done,” Kylie said.


Thanks to our impressive fleet of Kenworth trucks which can transport up to 98 tonnes of mining equipment, we were able to provide G&C Hannah with the support they needed.

“Our b-double and road train configurations – including our fleet of Kenworths and Flat Top Extendable – provided the perfect solution for a job of this size and distance,” Company Director and Driver, Josh Carter said.

Over the course of 13 days, our drivers covered almost 10,000kms – crossing the country from Newcastle to Revesby, Perth, and then up to Port Hedland before returning home.

As a National Heavy Vehicle Regulator and Main Roads WA accredited company, we had no issues with entry to WA. This gives us our competitive edge when transporting mining equipment.

It also means our customers have peace of mind knowing that to maintain accreditation, we need to be operating safely. We consistently demonstrate our commitment to mitigating risks related to fatigue, maintenance, mass, dimensions, and load restraint, as well as staff training and qualifications.


The drivers had a smooth journey across Australia and the equipment was delivered on time, without any damage.

We kept the team at G&C Hannah up to date with positive communication along the way, so they knew exactly when we’d be arriving on site and were ready to unload.

“Carter Heavy Haulage are always easy to deal with. Whether it’s liaising with the team in the office regarding PODs & POPs, or keeping us informed about how the job is progressing when it’s on the road, they’re always there to help,” Kylie said.

“At the end of the day when we need a reliable, safe, and efficient company to assist in transporting equipment, our go-to is Carter Heavy Haulage and Transport.”
