Bis secures multi-year contract in the Bowen Basin with a customisable off-road solution

Resources logistics provider, Bis, has secured a new multi-year contract for Anglo American’s Capcoal operations near Middlemount, in Queensland’s Bowen Basin. 

The off-road haulage, materials handling and site services contract is the latest in an ongoing relationship between Anglo American and Bis that spans more than 20 years.

The contract sees Bis supply a tailored high payload equipment solution for the operation’s rejects haulage. Additionally, the company will deliver site services including road maintenance, dust mitigation and ROM equipment feed, as well as haulage of topsoil, rock and ROM coal as required.

Bis Chief Executive Officer, Brad Rogers, said the company’s ability to provide a tailored haulage and logistics solution, specific to this particular operation, was a key factor in securing the new contract.

'We have a long history of integrating customisable OEM innovations and existing solutions to deliver against specific customer objectives.

‘This competency continues to drive operational efficiencies and reduce costs for our customers. It’s a formula that works.

‘For instance, the specific higher payload capacity solution put forward for this project delivers significant advantages for Anglo American. It means a reduction in the total equipment required, vehicle movements and fuel consumption; all three of which directly contribute towards improved safety, sustainability and productivity outcomes for the customer.

‘We’re delighted to be driving efficiencies and supporting Anglo American’s Capcoal complex operations,’ said Mr Rogers. 

The range of tailored equipment incorporated to deliver the project includes double trailer configuration haulers, front end loaders, graders, water trucks and a compaction roller.

The fleet is fitted with the latest Bis safety and productivity management systems, including Trifecta, which is new in-cabin AI driver and vehicle monitoring software.

The system collects and analyses data in real-time to improve both safety and productivity. Bis has exclusive rights to use and sell the system across a range of markets.

On site mobilisation for this new contract commences from August.
