This is a pretty incredible state – logistics is the heart of business here. It’s crucial whether we look at resources and mining or other commodities, such as what we have growing here in the wheat-belt. Here’s a simple shot showing some of the amazing infrastructure that is in place and which, during certain parts of the year, is exceptionally busy. We must have hit them on a slow day 🙂
In a state renowned for the mining and resources boom, logistics is BIG BUSINESS. However, there are other businesses that are crucial to the well-being of the state that also require significant logistics infrastructure and support.
The entire south-west segment of the state profits from being in the ‘wheat-belt’. A wonderfully fertile part of the country – but when the wheat needs to be harvested and moved, this must occur FAST. To ensure that this can happen there is a range of expensive infrastructure in place. Passing through a nearby town, we caught the following few of photos of some of the permanent infrastructure. This is a big operation to get the wheat moving fast and furiously to the coast and then out into the world.
