Infrastructure

Receiving the First Cargo into The Asian Marshalling Yard in May 2012 was a satisfying feat given the level of time an effort to ensure a World Class infrastructure was in place.

The Construction of 10,000 square meters of warehousing was first on the list. Exhausting the design process to ensure the 5000 square meters of climate control and 5000 square meters of standard warehousing was exactly what was required. Both warehouses have three entrance doors and minimal interior structures to ensure manoeuvrability internally can be done with ease. With a solid 35ton load bearing capacity, even larger cargoes can be accepted and stored safety

The next construction phase to be conquered was the office and facilities. Two individual offices one of which is two storeys, with enough space for 40+ office personnel. A fully loaded internal networking system also installed meaning a smooth working environment is paramount.

Other preliminary construction areas included a fully functional 25t load bearing wash pad with adequate inspection stands to accommodate six side inspections of even the bigger freight.

15 x 12-meter fumigation pads with the correct equipment to safely fumigate cargo to Australian and European standards. Fully Equipment DG Storage facilities have been installed allowing AMY to store all types of dangerous goods from liquid to gas.

During the infrastructure stages, MHE and equipment were also acquired including;

  • 70T Crane
  • 120 T Crane
  • 32T,7T,5T,3T Forklift Trucks
  • Reach-stacker
  • Trucks and Trailers
  • Rigging equipment to safely lift any type of cargo

An In-house workshop complete with all tools needed to keep our fleet of equipment serviced was also installed.

As well as a solid infrastructure of equipment, machinery and constructional buildings, the processes and procedures of running a world class warehousing and storage facility had to be generated and implemented.

The Asian Marshalling Yard, ensure each and every job that is undertaken is in accordance with the approved methodology. This is done with the help of 300+ plans, procedures, and documents.

Mobilization

Once the infrastructure was in place, it was time to mobilise personnel. Consisting of 5 different departments;

  • Operations
  • Materials
  • Health, Safety, and Environment
  • Quarantine
  • QAQC

Both expatriate employees’ exceptional local personnel were mobilised.

Receiving Cargo

When cargo arrives at AMY the first process is to ensure that the cargo is to a quarantine compliant level in which, when entering the yard it will not jeopardise the other compliant cargo. A check is also conducted to ensure cargo is correct and free from damages.

Once the all clear is given the cargo is safely escorted to its lay-down area. Qualified operators ensure any unloading of cargo is done correctly and with safety the number one priority.

Once cargo has been unloaded, the unpacking and in-depth materials checks are undertaken

Cargo is then kept in storage until required for export. During the storage period, a rigorous quarantine compliance process is conducted, including insertion of rat baits, mobe moat to catch insects and monthly residual quarantine sprays.

Export Preparation

When cargo has been called up for export, the process of preparation commences with locating the cargo and performing preliminary quarantine and materials checks. Quarantine remediation of cargo can be facilitated either in situ or at our wash facilities.

Once cargo quarantine compliant, it will be packed in one of a number of ways;

  • Wrapped
  • Crated
  • Containerized

Once packed, the cargo can be fumigated to Australian and European Standards.

Final inspections of cargo will then be done and the cargo will be loaded onto trucks ready for a safe export

The Asian Marshalling yard is a world class warehousing and storage facility with the capabilities of ensuring project cargo is stored, preserved and in compliant when ready to export.
