Freight - APY Lands

Mai Wiru Region­al Stores oper­ates its own freight ser­vice from Ade­laide to all APY Lands com­mu­ni­ties. Toll is con­tract­ed as the trans­port sup­pli­er using a ded­i­cat­ed triple road train ful­ly fund­ed by Mai Wiru. A trans­port ser­vice owned by the major users, the Com­mu­ni­ty Stores, ensures the long term via­bil­i­ty of the service.

Mai Wiru oper­ates a new, pur­pose built truck and trail­ers for the ben­e­fit of the APY Lands and all its communities.

Notes on Com­mu­ni­ty Freight Service

  • In com­mu­ni­ties where Mai Wiru man­age the stores, freight will be deliv­ered to the com­mu­ni­ty store and held there for col­lec­tion when con­ve­nient by receivers. This will include the hold­ing of refrig­er­at­ed goods in the store chillers or freez­ers to ensure cold chain integri­ty. This is an impor­tant val­ue-added cus­tomer ser­vice ensur­ing freight integri­ty through to col­lec­tion by receiver.
  • A late Wednes­day depar­ture enables store and com­mu­ni­ty orders to be placed up until the end of the pre­ced­ing week. These orders can be picked & packed on Mon­­day-Tues­day ready for col­lec­tion Wednes­day morn­ing.
