More info: AFD Pty Ltd has been commissioned by the City of Karratha to undertake an important study into the current state of freight and logistics inwards to and outwards from the Pilbara region.

The study covers air, rail, sea and air freight.

Opportunities for logistics improvements into Karratha could include direct sea freight liner service links to Asia from Dampier and direct air freight links from Karratha to Asia.

The study focusses on general and construction freight, fuel, consumables, materials, equipment, machines and vehicles brought into the Pilbara to support: townships and town businesses, mines and mining exporters, oil and gas producers, industrial plants, government businesses, utility providers and pastoralists.

The study also details general freight, livestock, equipment, vehicles and materials or goods, including recyclables, brought out of the Pilbara.

PILBARA LABOUR MARKET REVIEW

We have over 1300 jobs listed on SEEK for Karratha. With an unemployment rate of less than 2% we need don't need more jobs in the Pilbara, we need more people living and working here. 

The more data we have to prove which skilled professions are in highest demand, the more we can influence opportunities for a Designated Area Migration Agreement to allow Pilbara employers to sponsor skilled and semi-skilled overseas workers in areas experiencing skills and labour shortages.

Obvioucly this is just one of the strategies to address this issue a number of our local businesses are facing, along with the City of Karratha's $1.9M place branding strategy.  

Please fill out this survey and go in to win a $150 voucher of your choice:
