Simon National Carriers

With business roots originating back to 1926, the Simon brand has flourished to now be one of the largest Australian privately owned national logistics companies in operation. As our Managing Director David Simon states – “We started as a family business and we still are a family business. In a world that is moving and changing at rapid speed, we’re not only about keeping up, but making things easier for our customers. Above all else, we’re about being fair and ethical, and to me, that’s one of the fundamentals that have driven long term loyalty with a large portion of our customer base.”

We have been able to thrive by recognising and delivering to the exact needs of our customers. With 8 strategically located Capital and Regional city sites across Australia, we offer more than 133,000 square meters of undercover storage between them, in addition to separately operated dedicated warehousing sites.

Each of our 8 Simon branches provide multi user warehousing facilities shared with the transport and distribution infrastructure. We specialise in storing and transporting high value, hard to handle goods through a customised approach to each client’s requirements.

The service offering encompasses full service supply chain logistics, providing a comprehensive end to end storage and distribution solution – from container pickup at the wharf, to container unpack, storage, pick, pack and delivery to anywhere in Australia – Simon can do it all. The customers benefit – one service provider to deal with!

All of this comes with the option to integrate seamlessly into client systems. More than 90 years on from Simon Pty Ltd going live, these days we thrive amongst strategic long term relationships built alongside domestic and International Blue chip corporations such as Kubota, Bluescope, Rondo, Daikin, Caterpillar and the list goes on.

Simon National Carriers recognise that the essential services which we provide lead to the generation of wastes which are harmful to the environment. We take all practical steps to minimise the amount of these wastes and their impact on our environment and the community.

Initiatives include:

  • 90km/h to reduce fuel consumption and the resultant output of greenhouse gas and other wastes
  • Bullbars only specified for “outback” routes to maximise fuel economy
  • Driver training to ensure appropriate best practice driving skills are applied by our drivers
  • Continual upgrade of our linehaul fleet and local fleets with new vehicles operating to the latest mandated emissions regulations
  • Review of other wastes, and opportunities for their minimisation
  • Continual focus on energy efficient improvements to our buildings and equipment purchases

Simon National Carriers has developed Australia’s first Greenhouse gas neutral freight service, CleanFreight. Where customers elect to participate in our CleanFreight program, all emissions generated in the movement of their goods are offset by investment in programs that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Such projects may include tree planting, waste gas capture and use, or (otherwise uneconomic) investment in industrial processes to reduce emissions.

Safety & Compliance

As a long term and strong supporter of the Chain of Responsibility concept, we hold the safety of our people and all else relevant in the chain with extreme regard. We go above and beyond from a compliance perspective to make sure all parties in the supply chain including the consignor or dispatcher, packer, loader, scheduler, consignee or receiver, as well as the driver and operator are aware of and take positive steps to prevent a breach of road transport laws and regulations in regards to mass, packaging, load restraint dimension, loading, speed, fatigue, vehicle maintenance and work hours.

We hold accreditation and are compliant to the industry’s premier accreditation scheme Truck Safe, in addition to NHVAS (National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme) and WAHVA (Western Australia Heavy Vehicle Accreditation). All vehicle maintenance is completed within our own workshop to ensure that our fleet is maintained to the highest standard in order to minimise downtime and maximise availability for our customers.

Our systems, most notably our IVMS (In Vehicle Management System) allow us to monitor the actions of our fleet and our drivers in real-time. This allows us to manage speed, acceleration and deceleration, any instances of harsh braking, freight mass and schedules, required rest breaks and total driving hours. Our system alerts supervisors of any imminent or actual breach in regulations and allows them to take action immediately.
