The mining industry’s reputation as a well-oiled machine is backed by the amount of hire equipment that National Group has sent to Australian mines this year. With multiple pieces of heavy earthmoving equipment sent out each month, National Group supports the continuity of Australia’s iron ore, metallurgical coal, gold, bauxite and manganese operations. This includes the delivery of two Caterpillar 775G service trucks and one Caterpillar 24 motor grader to a Blackwater mine in Queensland. All equipment was assembled at Hastings Deering’s factory in Brisbane, before being delivered by National Heavy Haulage to National Group’s Toowoomba yard in the Darling Downs region. This is where the machines start to come alive. Both 60-tonne 775G service trucks were set up to deliver reliable performance and low maintenance as soon as National Group put on their service modules and completed final assembly. The Cat 24 grader went through its final assembly stage and was mine-spec ready at National Group’s Blackwater yard. National Group managing director Mark Ackroyd says the 775G trucks were recommended based on the mining company’s use, capacity and size requirements.  “The 775G truck builds its credibility on Caterpillar’s 40-year history in building trucks. The mining company needs this type of service trucks because they’ll be tasked to service a large portion of the mine,” Ackroyd tells Australian Mining. “Accounting for the number of pits and haul roads, they required extra capacity within the mine. It wasn’t ordered as a replacement piece. And to avoid capital expenditures, they chose to hire the equipment from us.” The 775G trucks are equipped with the latest Gecko service module and a reliable dispensing unit capable of carrying 42,000 litres of fuel. They have been designed to ensure safe ergonomics to reduce driver fatigue and increase productivity. The 775G trucks also boast an “exceptionally smooth” shifting and ride quality thanks to Caterpillar’s new planetary powershift transmission control strategy. The strategy, called APECS, incorporates an electronic clutch pressure control that aids in torque shift management, retaining momentum through long shifts that support a 24/7 mining operation. Mining operators are treated to seven different ways to conserve fuel as they are free to customise two fuel economy modes for the desired levels of savings. Featuring Tier 4 final emission controls, Caterpillar has moved towards a low-carbon future by integrating a nitrogen oxide reduction system technology that produces cooler temperatures in the combustion chamber. The Cat 24 motor grader is also favoured for its power. Suitable for applications in wide haul roads, the Cat 24 is equipped with Cat Grade Control to help operators maintain the desired cross slope. It is powered by the Cat C27 engine to handle various working altitudes and offers 11 per cent additional weight to generate more traction and blade down pressure than the 24M motor grader. Operators can also rely on its consistency throughout changing ambient conditions as its consistent power-to-the-ground changes its real-time engine power levels to offset the shortcomings of the cooling fan. It validates the mining company’s choice to specifically hire the Cat 24 grader. Most importantly, Ackroyd says safety is at the top of the mining company’s mind. The Cat 24 grader, for example, is designed with 15 tie-off points around the engine enclosure and cab as a secure tie-off hook for operators and technicians when carrying out service operations. It also comes with a standard rear-view camera to expand the operator’s visibility from the cab to areas behind the machine. “Safety, reliability and quality are the three deciding factors for any mining company,” Ackroyd says. “To further help them achieve this, our skilled workforce can do maintenance for the hire equipment on site as well.” From early discussions to assembly, delivery and maintenance, National Group is committed to providing an end-to-end solution.

CircleSource closes talent gap between SMEs and big business 2021-04-28T22:51:08Z circlesource-closes-talent-gap-between-smes-and-big-business-1 Small and medium enterprises can now attract the best Australian specialists for outsourced expertise, thanks to a new online marketplace that connects businesses (buyers) to expert service providers (suppliers) within minutes.The CircleSource digital platform focuses on Australian specialists nationwide, to support Australian experts and Australian businesses; allowing both parties to communicate directly online and in-person offline.The platform’s interactive map even lets you search by location, streamlining your search to your local area – particularly useful for organisations looking to build their community.CircleSource is co-founded by Andrew Jarvis and Andrew Jackson, who built their decades-long careers in corporate HR, across numerous industry sectors; experiencing first-hand the need to engage external specialists at different stages throughout their journeys.Today, small businesses employing 0-19 staff make up 97.4% of all Australian businesses, and a whopping 62.8% of Aussie businesses are non-employing (sole traders). And as the number of independent contractors in the gig economy continues to grow rapidly, Jarvis says now is the time for SMEs to harness the full benefits of sourcing external specialists via a robust system. “We know that external specialists inject much-needed fresh thinking and expert skills into organisations. It can save costs and increase productivity.“But for too long, SMEs have been disadvantaged by the lack of resources and governance protocols to source the best people, relying heavily on personal networks and referrals or online search,” he said.CircleSource removes this disadvantage, giving SMEs easy access to competing on a level playing field as big business; by providing a sophisticated enterprise business management tool that cuts inefficiencies.“Everything from the job brief, listing and bidding to communication, proposal review and data reporting, can be managed on the one dashboard.”“Depending on how the individual business operates, there can be between 40%-70% cost savings in time and effort,” said Jarvis, who highlighted the fact that there is absolutely no cost to the buyer to use the platform. Suppliers only pay a one-off fee (which is capped) if they win a job. Buyers and suppliers want transparencyResearch, both academic and through CircleSource’s own market surveys, reveals that independent specialists want platforms that are truly transparent – no hidden costs such as fees for membership and lead generation; no barriers to buyer/supplier communication; and openness around how jobs get awarded.As Dr. Amy Wrzesniewski, Professor at Yale School of Management explains in an interview published in Deloitte Insights, it matters a lot that people feel they understand how it all works, especially in the business side of things – where the money goes, how jobs get assigned – and that they feel fairly treated. “At least right now, on a lot of these platforms, there is a sense of a lack of transparency or at worst, a sense of potentially being manipulated by the platform where gig workers feel the design is pushing them, but it’s for the benefit of the organisation, not the individual,” she said.Jarvis: “Exactly why we built CircleSource on our core values of transparency and trust. To move beyond a financial transaction marketplace, into an ecosystem where real connections, relationships and collaborations grow. To deliver great outcomes for all parties in terms of quality, time and cost.”For buyersSign up for free and start searching for all suppliers on the platform. There are no barriers to reading their full profiles.You can follow them or mark them as favourites until you are ready to engage them.Create your job, post to the open market or directly invite selected suppliers and communicate directly via live chat.You can also invite experts from outside of the platform to bid at the same time.Receive notifications each time there is an action on the job.It is 100% free for buyers. Suppliers will only pay a fee of 7.5% of the agreed value of the job, capped at a maximum of $1250 if their proposal is accepted. No job, no fee – if you do not win a job, you pay nothing.Once a job is completed, you can choose to recommend a supplier and leave a written endorsement. It is how suppliers trend in CircleSource and appear higher in searches.You can manage all jobs in one dashboard and build your network of inner-circle suppliers for future engagement.For suppliersSign up for free and start searching for all jobs on the platform.
