Westlink Logistics Scholarship in Maritime and Logistics Management

Westlink Logistics Scholarship in Maritime and Logistics Management

Founded in 1993, Westlink Logistics (Westlink) journey began by operating multipurpose and heavy lift vessels that transported offshore drilling supplies and mining equipment to companies involved in the exploration and development of Australia’s North West Shelf and Pilbara regions. Delivering equipment and assets from around the world into these remote and limited infrastructure regions led to our development of expertise and experience in providing specialist global end to end project logistics and operations supply chain solutions for the Energy, Mining, Rail, Government and Infrastructure sectors.

For close to 25 years, Westlink has been working with their clients to reduce operating expenses and the execution risk associated with increasingly complex project logistics and operations supply chain. Across our client’s asset lifecycles, from concept to decommissioning, we have developed innovative methods and highly specialised practices to deliver practical outcomes.
