Welcome to the new and improved Cahill Transport web site. We hope you like it. It has been a long time in the making and we hope you are as excited about it as we are. If you have any feedback on our new web site, we would welcome your comments:
17/7/2015 Sydney Weather: Heavy Snowfalls across NSW
The wild weather and heavy snow storms has caused major traffic disruptions overnight for the Hume Highway, Great Western Highway and the Bells line road has been closed in places, leaving no way for our drivers to travel. The heavy snowfalls and freezing weather in areas of the state have had a significant effect on traffic, with queues of up to 30km on the Hume Highway south of Sydney and drivers were warned of lengthy delays.
There was no diversion in place for heavy vehicles.
The Hume Highway is now open but has caused very long delays for some of our line haul vehicles this morning. These delays are expected to continue and we will advise further information as we receive updates.
DARWIN DEPOT RELOCATION
Cahill Transport are proud to announce the opening of our new purpose built state of the art facility in the East Arm Logistics precinct. The facility is close to Rail and Port infrastructure and has easy access for our Road Train and Linehaul Fleet. With over 4000 m2 of warehousing space to cover our expanding NT operations.
NSW STATE GOVERNMENT – TRANSPORT FOR NSW
Transport for NSW have announced that Cahill Transport is in the top ten performing medium/small carriers that access the terminals of Port Botany. With a 97.9 % operational performance (on-time trips vs service failures) Cahill Transport has placed 6th overall in a total of 146 carriers in 2013.
Cahill Transport endeavours to continuously improve our overall performance.
NEW SUPER B DOUBLE TRAILERS
Introduced into our Melbourne and Adelaide Depots are the new super B double combinations. These will provide the transportation of 2, 40’’ containers or 4, 20’’ containers or a combination of both.
Ultimately the introduction of the new combinations will reduce the number of journeys, reduce air/noise pollution and increase efficiency. Not only will the environment benefit but also traffic congestion.
NEW SPECIALISED VEHICLES
Recently introduced to our fleet are trailers designed for one of our clients that had a requirement for built in specialized horizontal and lateral pallet support. These pallet supports can be simply reconfigured to suit various pallet sizes.
Cahill Transport can provide specialized vehicles to suit any of your requirements.
NEW DEPOT – DARWIN
The new Darwin depot is located in East Arm Darwin. This new facility provides easy access to road train and line haul transport, extensive warehousing capabilities and providing a base for local deliveries. The depot is headed by Allan Tepper.
Cahill Transport was selected to participate in a video shoot recently. Caterpillar Logistics were selected as a finalist for this year’s Worksafe Awards.
