Pentarch Logistics, formerly known as Australian Marshalling Services, was established in 1996 to provide portside storage, quality control, measurement and logistics solutions for the export of log and allied wood products within Australia.
Since inception, the business has operated across all Australian states and territories, handling in excess of 20 million cubic metres of woodchip and logs.
The majority of this volume has been shipped in bulk vessels, however, container loading and handling has also become a significant aspect of our business.
We recently expanded operations to include the provision of toll woodchipping services at our Burnie woodchip facility in Tasmania. Pentarch Logistics also operates the Eden woodchip facility in New South Wales.
Pentarch Logistics is an integrated service provider. Our key specialities are toll woodchipping, log marshalling and transport logistics services for both break bulk and container exports.
Pentarch Forestry™ can export all commercially grown plantation softwood and hardwood species as whole round logs cut to order. Our exports have comprised Radiata Pine, Douglas Fir, Ponderosa Pine and Eucalyptus Nitens species, grown in Australia and New Zealand.
We can also supply wood fibre in woodchip and lumber. Logs are sold in units of Japanese Agricultural Standard (JAS) cubic metres. Woodchip is produced and tested to SCAN and TAPPI specifications as required by our customers. Pentarch Technical Services measures and ensures compliance with these standards.
Pentarch Logistics has facilities in Burnie (Tasmania) and Eden (New South Wales).
All these sites are registered export facilities which comply with all federal and state WHSE legislation.
We have developed a fleet of specialist wood-handling equipment to meet the requirements of our customers.
