Serving the Mining Industry

Innovative Bulk Solutions Tailored to Mining

Watco’s innovative bulk solutions can make rail a viable mining logistics solution where traditional bulk wagons are too expensive.

By utilizing multi-use container rail wagons, we are able to move across regions and industries. We provide flexible and innovative solutions with a lower capital outlay.

Using a combination of traditional 20 and 40 foot containers, half-height containers and Iso-tainers we are able to bring the efficiency of large-scale rail logistics to small to medium sized operations. Efficiently bringing in mining inputs for your operations and taking your products to port for export markets.

The Australian mining industry has unique logistical challenges due to the remote locations and volumes transported. Both of these problems are solved by our current Western Australian intermodal terminals and rail services throughout the state.

Through strategically located intermodal terminals at Kalgoorlie, Leonora, Rockingham, Forrestfield and Fremantle Port, Watco is able to provide  competitive rail freight services to connect the mining sector to domestic refining and international export markets.
