GIVEN growing environmental concerns in Australia, the Cronos Group understands that it is critical to transport products securely and without fear of contamination.
Since 1978, Cronos has specialised in intermodal equipment leasing, design and sales: servicing the needs of more than 450 customers globally in a wide variety of industries. With its infrastructure of more than 90 industry professionals and a network of 17 offices in 16 countries, Cronos offers one of the world’s largest and most diversified container fleets, together with the industry’s most advanced IT and operations platform. The company has been involved in the Australian domestic transportation market since the early 1990s, and specialises in delivering containerised bulk products that need to be transported by rail, road and sea to mining operations. Its design team has been able to efficiently and cost-effectively supply container equipment that caters for individual products in varying loading environments.
Cronos offers numerous types of intermodal equipment catering for most transport modes and can also design equipment to cater for non-standard requirements. Different financial terms are also available,
from standard lease and financial lease to direct sale options.
In addition to providing leasing solutions to its customers, Cronos offers design and procurement services for companies needing specialised, built-to-order transportation equipment. All clients have access to
the Cronos technical and operations teams, allowing them to ‘leverage’ the Cronos brand to their advantage.
With a managed fleet exceeding $1 billion in value, Cronos strives to be its clients’ partner of choice for all shipping needs, including drys, reefers, tanks and dry freight specials worldwide.
In recent times, Cronos has worked closely with the mining industry as containerised equipment has become, in some cases, an essential facet of the mine site to wharf/customer logistics stream.
The company has worked with IMX Resources to supply more than 3000 iron ore containers to its project in South Australia, and is currently working with a number of mines that have similar requirements.
