ACT Logistics has added Australia’s Department of Defence to its list of clients with a multi-year deal for ICT asset lifecycle services. The four-year contract is valued at almost A$10 million and will commence immediately.

“We are delighted to be awarded the largest Federal Government contract in Australia for ICT Hardware Disposal Services” said ACT Logistics Managing Director Alex Farenden. “It is no exaggeration to say that the Department of Defence requires an unparalleled level of security from its contract partners,” Farenden said. “We have the capacity, infrastructure and accreditations to deliver on these expectations from day one both within Australia and globally. ACT Logistics is a step ahead within the industry thanks to our innovative approach and dedication to a circular economy. We are renowned for continually raising the bar with our commitment to delivering the best environmental outcomes, security standards, reporting structure, and service delivery within the market.”

Farenden said ACT Logistics’ ingrained organisational culture of continuous improvement and exceeding client expectations had been instrumental in securing the new Department of Defence contract. “We work collaboratively with all our customers to deliver best practice lifecycle management strategies and find new solutions that extend the life of ICT equipment within our framework of uncompromising security,” he said. “We are passionate about our business and take the responsibility of managing eWaste very seriously.”

The ACT Logistics team will be providing disposal services in 44 locations across Australia and a further 50 international locations in 39 countries. The contract covers the full range of ICT hardware items from PCs, tablets and phones to servers, printers and audio-visual equipment.

The range of services provided by ACT Logistics includes large scale installations, data sanitisation, remarketing, and sustainable recycling. The business is headquartered in Brisbane with other logistics locations in Sydney and Melbourne.
