SCT won the WCL contract in April last year. It was previously held by Qube.
Very soon after, Qube bought Westgate Logisitics who have the terminal at the Docks in Melbourne.
Qube immediately put terms on for the unloading of the SCT/WCL train that were untenable, forcing the SCT/WCL train to be unloaded at CRT in Altona then trucked to the Docks.
Six months later, WCL moved to the Wimmera Freight Terminal at Dooen, being the only bidder when tenders were called.
Later, Qube decide to run their own train taking their customer Viterra away from WCL. Qube may have aimed to wipe out WCL's business which would enable them to take over the Wimmera Freight terminal at Dooen with no competition. However, the other customers stuck with WCL, thus enabling WCL to survive. Later on again, WCL merged with SCT to form a joint venture, ensuring the survival and jobs at Dooen.
All along WCL have been prepared to allow Qube to use the terminal at Dooen......on the same terms that are available for SCT/WCL at Westgate at the Docks. It appears that the Viterra boxes will be going by road now, on Qube trucks.
