North Queensland Flooding – UPDATE 12th March

We are still experiencing some service delays in North Queensland due to some unrelenting weather conditions causing extensive flooding throughout the North QLD district.

  • Presently, any freight for locations north of Townsville is delayed with flooding through Ingham, Cardwell and local flooding in Innisfail and Cairns.
  • The highway to Mt Isa has opened, however after a week of closures there will continue to be delays as we process the backlog. Followmont has actioned additional resources to assist with processing as soon as possible.
  • Ingham is still flooded and the highway is closed to heavy vehicles.  Over the weekend we travelled inland to continue our service as best we can, which doubled normal timeframes but resulted in freight slowly reaching the appropriate Followmont Branches in most northern locations with the exception of Ingham.
  • Mt Isa freight will continue to see delays as we process the backlog to these locations north of Townsville.

We appreciate everyone’s understanding during this period and assure you we are doing everything in our power to provide the best service possible.

Our thoughts are with the families and businesses who have been affected by the recent weather conditions. Please stay safe and travel with care.
