Now in its 22nd year in business, Freightplus has successfully transported more than 30,000 pieces of mining machinery, earning in the process an enviable reputation for delivering mining assets in full, on time and on budget.

With branches across Australia and USA, Canada, Japan and Thailand, supported by an extensive international network of like-minded, long-term partners, also specialising in the international movement of mining assets, the Freightplus team is well-equipped to make light work of even the most multifaceted logistics challenges, between any two points on Earth.

Despite the geographical challenges laid down by COVID-19 travel restrictions, Freightplus has successfully handled challenging door-to-door shipments of some of the biggest, and most complex mining machines to and from some of the remotest locations in the Africa, Russia, Mongolia, Venezuela, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Borneo, Canada, USA, Papua New Guinea, China, India and Saudi Arabia, as well as hundreds of shipments to, from and around Australia.

Whilst the dividends of each business unit are funneled back to Australia, each office distributes no less than 10% of its profits to charities and community groups in its local area. Freightplus is very much an organization with a social conscience.
