Like many of our valued customers and other businesses here in Australia, we are feeling the effects of weak activity in the agriculture and resource sectors in particular. Our response to these market-driven changes and the current operating environment has been to reposition and transform the Patrick Bulk and Automotive Port Services Division so we can continue to be a high-performing, customer-focussed business.Read Story More News

C3 Limited’s roots stretch back to the 1950’s when a portside and logistics business was founded in Mount Maunganui on New Zealand’s North Island. By the time Asciano acquired C3 in 2012, the company was New Zealand’s leading provider of product handling solutions, partnering with exporters, importers and shipping lines throughout Australia and New Zealand.
As part of Patrick, C3 now provides log marshalling services in New South Wales, as well as log marshalling and forestry harvesting and processing services in Victoria, in addition to its extensive operational footprint in New Zealand. C3 integrates seamlessly with other Asciano companies, including Patrick and Pacific National, to provide total supply chain solutions for customers across the region.
Every year, C3 handles over 14.5 million tonnes of cargo, including around 30 million logs, 3.5 million tonnes of forest products and 300,000 tonnes of steel.
It’s crucial for the region’s exporters and importers to have reliable, fast and secure ways to get their products to and from the world’s markets. We’re proud to be a major part of making that happen.

You’d think our Patrick team never sits still. Their work keeps everything moving and forms the bond between our port, rail and haulage services so, just as we’re always changing, they are too. Joining a team dynamic team that’s always on their feet means you’ll make important decisions at every turn.
Patrick is the engine to our business. It’s hard graft and good humour that keeps everything running smoothly, even when we meet a new challenge.
