As part of a 10-year agreement, Caterpillar Logistics Services will provide warehousing and inventory management, records accuracy, and transportation management services to Newmont Mining Corporation, a leading gold producer.
Cat Logistics will operate a 162,000-square-foot logistics center in Elko, Nevada, that will serve as a master distribution center supporting four mines and five processing plants in the north-central part of the state. The facility also will incorporate the parts operations of Cashman, the local Caterpillar dealer. In a combined effort with Newmont's maintenance team, the Cat Logistics integrated logistics solution will aid Newmont's 3,700-plus employees to recover, crush, convey and process precious metals.
"Newmont recognizes the increasing importance of improved material availability for the productivity of our workforce," says Brant Hinze, vice president of Newmont's North American Operations. "Cat Logistics's expertise in providing an integrated logistics solution will result in better equipment availability, increased employee productivity, and lower inventory carrying costs. This new partnership will streamline our supply chain process positioning Newmont at the forefront of the industry."
