CQ First Edition April 2015
Early rain in 2015 has seen the demand for chemical higher than any other year to date for Clarkson Freightlines. With Easter causing two four day weeks, all our clients and staff were feeling the heat to move the freight as quickly as possible.
8 DAYS = 2,200 TONNE
At an average of 275 tonne per day, these numbers have been reached before for one or two days, but to have these volumes constantly over the past month is a new company record.
This put our new Perth yard facilities to the test but allowed the Clarkson team to handle these high volumes and move our customers’ freight fast, efficiently and safely.
This was a tremendous effort by our entire team and we are grateful for their hard work.
New Edition to the Fleet
Just in time for the freight rush, Perth Driver Rhys Allsopp was very happy to meet his new wheels on Monday 30th March.
Running and maintaining the best equipment is one of our core values at Clarkson Freightlines.
This allows us to service our customers efficiently by minimizing downtime whilst also being environmentally friendly through operating a modern fleet with the latest in emission controls.

2015 Community Support
Giving back to communities is a big focus of Clarkson Freightlines. We feel that sporting teams are the lifeblood of country towns and we will continue to support the regions that in turn support us.
North Midlands Football League
This year Clarkson Freightlines has formed a new partnership with the North Midlands Football League. As country towns within the North Midlands Region are a big part of our drivers’ weekly schedule, we feel that we have almost become locals. So the next step for us was to support the towns we service.
All NMFL game day balls this season will feature the Clarkson Freightlines logo. After each match, the home side will receive the game ball and continue to use them at training throughout the year.
Railways Football Club
Clarkson Freightlines has committed again for another year of to sponsor Railways Football Club. Although Kris is no longer playing with Railways, our ties still remain strong after several premierships and friendships formed. The club has a strong, proud history and this year will be no different. With big junior participation and a young senior side, Railways are set to be very competitive for the flag again in 2015.
S&K Electrical Geraldton Buccaneers
This year marks 10 years of sponsorship support for Geraldtons local state basketball team. The Buccaneers is a word used in most Geraldton families that love and play basketball. The players are both local and international and have proven to be great role models for young aspiring athletes. A great example of this are local players Aaron Ralph and Matt Wundenberg both playing over 250 and 300 games respectively for the club, these two idolized the Buccs growing up and are now doing the same for our juniors now.
It will be great to see the boys bounce back this year and go one step further toward a premiership.
