Each year, Silk moves in excess of 420,000 TEUs between major Australian ports and both Silk and client warehouse facilities. Silk offers the Australian market a ‘port-to-door’ integrated end-to-end logistics service across port logistics and contract logistics (warehousing and distribution).

With a comprehensive fleet of prime movers, side-loaders, and trailers, Silk has established itself across the nation as a key player in the Port Logistics sector.

Silk’s Port Logistics division operates from two sites in Sydney, three sites in Melbourne and a site at the Port of Brisbane. Silk also offers wharf cartage services to its customers in Adelaide and Perth, through outsourced Port Logistics partners.

Encompassing a team of dedicated professionals across our national network, we offer flexible solutions to look after Port Logistics needs across a variety of Australian industries.

Below are key roles which comprise the Port Logistics team:

  • Overall responsibility for the performance of the business unit
  • Leading and coaching a team of talented individuals
Reach Stacker Operators
  • Moving wharf containers in a safe and efficient manner
  • Drive responsibly to deliver loads in a safe and professional manner
Fleet Controllers
  • Allocate the drivers to deliver product in an efficient and effective manner
  • Ensuring fatigue management principles are adopted
Customer Service Representatives
  • Provide exceptional service to customers and manage requirements in line within agreed service standards


We are always on the search for committed, dedicated and safe drivers, to assist with our seamless service to our customers.

Drivers need to possess an MSIC card and a Heavy Vehicle (HV) drivers licence, preferably with a minimum of 3 years HV driving experience.

A Multi Combination (MC) / B Double licence is preferable for flexibility but not absolutely essential.

Reach Stacker Operators need a forklift licence (preferably some experience driving 16 – 25 tonne). Suitable applicants can then be trained on a Reach Stacker to gain enough experience to sit the required test in order to operate the machinery in a safe manner.
