Sadleirs starts recruiting after Chevron win

Sadleirs Logistics, a subsidiary of Western Australia’s oldest family-owned business, has won a contract to supply mainland transport services to Chevron’s operations in the Pilbara for an undisclosed sum.

In a statement, Sadleirs said it would set up a stand-alone business unit to service Chevron, including a new fleet of trucks, and would immediately hire a team of about 75 people, including regional drivers and support staff.

“With staffing numbers expected to increase to about 100 over the course of the contract, the local staffing engagement will contribute to regional community growth,” the transport and logistics service provider said.

About half of the new staff will be based in Dampier, while the rest will be Perth based.

“It is anticipated the local employment will also extend to Onslow over the course of the contract,” the company said.

Sadleirs chief executive Neil David said he was proud the business had won the work with Chevron.

“We are one of the oldest family-owned businesses in Australia, starting in 1829 in Fremantle, and over that journey have forged very long-term relationships with customers,” Mr David said.

“The award of this contract supports our broader strategic initiatives of focusing on safety, exceptional customer service and providing our clients with the perfect journey through operational excellence.”

Lionel Samson Sadleirs, the parent company of Sadleirs Logistics, is ranked #1 in BNiQ WA Business Dynasties list.
