C3 Limited Services

Information Management ystems

C3 develops and operates cutting-edge technology. On arrival to the port, their specialists scale every log according to the Japanese Agricultural Standard, or JAS. This scanned detail is entered into the Jade Master Terminal, or JMT, an integrated terminal system that tracks individual logs across the port, to the ship, and onwards to the world.

They designed, built and manage C3 SLIM (Simple Log Inventory Management), which hooks onto JMT to give you secure 24/7 online access to your log and consignment reporting. Similarly, they developed C3 TRACK, for non-log export products. C3 TRACK follows products from receipt by C3, through storage and containerisation, and into vessels. Like C3 SLIM, C3 TRACK gives you secure 24/7 online access to reporting.

Pacific National Services

Bulk Haulage

When your bulk is heavy, needs extra security or has a long way to go, putting it on rails makes sense. It’s the predictable method of logistics that leaves you with more energy to spend on the resource and customer ends of your supply chain. Our team of industry experts can work alongside you to ensure your individual bulk haulage needs are met.


With nearly 6,000 specialised coal wagons, 600 locomotives and 10,000 people in teams throughout Australia, we can help unlock the potential in your coal business. When your business needs connections beyond rail, Pacific National’s extended ports and haulage network make it easy to integrate your whole supply chain.


The intermodal arm of our business is comprised of interstate container freight, interstate break bulk freight (steel), and hook and pull services for passenger trains.


Calling something predictable is rarely a compliment but when it comes to steel freight, it’s how we like to be known. Working on a precise schedule in secure, lossless containers, our steel distribution services keep everything on track and on time.
