Shane Coote is Director of Exmouth Freight Services, a transport service agent for the Exmouth region and the offshore oil and gas industry. The business operates a line haul from Exmouth to Karratha, for waste disposal from the Gorgon mine site. Mr Coote said one of his most significant achievements was contributing to the release of industrial land in Exmouth, which resulted in Mowbowra Industrial Estate. In 2004, his business premises had to be vacated due to a town planning restructure. He wrote a report on the inefficiencies of the zoning policy and its ramifications on small business and presented it to the local shire and Landcorp. This resulted in the grant of an exceptional licence to occupy undeveloped crown land. Mr Coote raised funds from investors to purchase prime industrial land and his business was the first to commence operations in the industrial estate.
