AWH: serving Australia's heartlands

We see a great future for regional Australia – and especially our agricultural sector. Regional Australia is the source of most of Australia’s exports and the destination point for many imports such as building materials and agricultural products. Last year we were delighted to purchase 50 percent of AWH, which has 16 major facilities across the country totaling 630,000square metres of warehousing, many in key regional locations. It also operates specialty bulk, bonded and consumer goods warehousing, all located in strategic locations across Australia.

AWH provides storage, handling, and inventory management services for an array of general, bulk and containerised products for import, export and domestic distribution.

AWH has installed state-of-the-art inventory control systems which utilise mobile computing technology and custom data interfaces with major customers. AWH provides handling and marketing services to 50 percent of the Australia’s wool exports and 20 percent of the nation’s cotton exports. 

AWH has an extensive modern fleet in excess of 200 forklifts, complemented by container handlers, front end loaders, specialised wool sampling machinery and conveyor systems.

These facilities are supported by leading­ edge computerised inventory control systems which utilise mobile computing technology and custom-designed data interfaces with major customers.
