Transport companies clear backlog caused by Cyclone Oswald

Transport operators in the areas of Queensland that were severely affected by the impact of ex-cyclone Oswald now report that normal services have resumed and most backlogs have been delivered.

Toll NQX said in a statement that the company has been working around the clock to clear all freight backlogs and that all freight is now moving and all services have resumed to normal. Toll NQX management expressed their appreciation to their customers for their support, consideration and patience.

Meanwhile, StarTrack has advised customers that regular services have been re-established in most of the areas of Queensland affected by the recent floods, including Rockhampton, Bundaberg, and the area west of Toowoomba.

Sadliers Transport made similar statements, regarding their services on road and rail now being back to their normal schedule although there still could be some minimal delays on rail, caused by a backlog of freight.

Cyclone Oswald initially formed in the Gulf of Carpentaria and brought high winds and exceptional rain to large areas of Queensland and Northern New South Wales. Major flooding and damage to roads and other transport infrastructure have presented a major challenge to transport operators in the areas.
