Transport and logistics business Centurion has secured a fuel haulage contract with Viva Energy and acquired contracts and vehicles from Perth-based Fuel Trans Australia.

Centurion has been awarded a multi-year contract to deliver fuels and bulk lubricants from Viva’s Kalgoorlie base, along with other sites including Meekatharra and Esperance.

The company already operates with Viva in the north-west.

Centurion has also acquired part of Fuel Trans Australia’s business, including the short and line haul contracts operating from Perth and Kalgoorlie.

Fuel Trans Australia is an independent fuel cartage contractor operating fuel tankers throughout WA and the Northern Territory.

The acquisition includes more than 50 vehicle assets and will allow Centurion to take over a number of metropolitan and regional bulk fuel haulage contracts from Fuel Trans.

Centurion said the two deals would take its road delivery volumes to more than 1.2 billion litres annually.

Centurion chief executive Justin Cardaci said the activity was consistent with its long-term businesses strategy to increase market share.

“We are a well-established and trusted Western Australian company that has been successfully involved in the bulk fuels haulage market for a significant period of time and this is a natural area for us to expand our business,” he said.

Centurion is a financially strong and stable business that understands the industry and offers safe and reliable supply chain solutions to our customers.

“The acquisition of part of the Fuel Trans Australia business provides us the opportunity to grow our business in key regions nationally on the back of these new services, while the contract with Viva Energy requires us to establish a major fuels depot out of our Kalgoorlie branch.”
