Townsville Bulk Storage and Handling is North Queensland’s largest privately owned and operated stevedoring company.
We understand the importance of efficient and consistent stevedoring services to ensuring the long-term success of your business. With a long-term reputation for maintaining a high standard of regulatory compliance and safety, our experienced and skilled 'gang' ensure your complex, hazardous, oversized or specialised cargo is in safe hands.
Using our innovative equipment and highly experienced people, TBSH handles tonnes of cargo at the Port of Townsville annually, which includes overseeing the loading and unloading of:
Copper, lead and zinc concentrate
Specialised project cargo.
We are also committed to the continuous improvement of our services to improve cost and time efficiencies for your business, which includes investing in new technology and equipment.
This includes procuring the region’s first Liebherr Mobile Shore Crane, located at Berth 10 at the Port of Townsville. With a lifting capability of 104 tonnes per lift, the crane provides greater flexibility and efficiency in the stevedoring of a broad range of cargo.
The introduction of our rotating container devices, or ‘Rotainer’ has also improved the efficiency of our stevedoring operations.
Attached to a crane, the rotainer lifts purpose built containers deep into the cargo hold of a ship and rotates them until all of the bulk material has been emptied into the hold. The empty container is returned to the upright position and placed back on the wharf ready to be carted off for reloading.
