In March Summit commissioned the new liquids load out facility.
It has two filling points on a dedicated weighbridge which allows simultaneous filling of both front and rear trailers.
As well as more accurate weighing, the system significantly reduces load out times.
Phil Jacob, Operations Manager at Summit said that the time to load a truck with two 25t tanks would be halved. "Our early tests of the system has shown we can load 54t in less than half the time of the old system and with considerable more ease for the operator and the driver." he said. "The whole thing is under cover."
"In conjunction with that we have doubled our storage capacity for liquid fertilizers at Kwinana and Esperance which allows us to manufacture, store and despatch at a much higher rate than previously."
