Not quite business as usual as APT’s 4WDs hit the road

At this time of year, we would normally see APT’s fleet of 4WD adventure vehicles being polished and packed ready for the start of the 2020 touring season in the Kimberley.

As it’s not quite business as usual right now, unusual times call for unusual measures, which saw six of the 4WD vehicles redeployed from Broome to the mining industry in the remote Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Taking more than 10 hours to cover 900 kilometers of remote roads, the custom-built Mercedes Benz 4WD vehicles travelled in convoy tackling the daily changes to border crossing restrictions along the way. This all came about because mine operations required additional vehicles to transport workers to and from the mine’s airstrip during shift changes to ensure they meet social distancing requirements during transit. APT was chosen due to its excellent reputation for having safe and reliable vehicles of the highest standard, as well as the ability to provide the required number of identical vehicles for ease of handover and operation.

Commenting on the relocation, APT’s Managing Director, Chris Hall said, “With travel on pause it means we are unable to welcome our guests to the Kimberley. So rather than our 4WDs sitting idle, we decided to help the Pilbara’s mines who were needing transport vehicles. Logistically it was a huge challenge to relocate the vehicles, but nothing our team is not used to and they made it happen.”

“APT has been revealing the secrets of Outback Australia to its guests for over 50 years, bringing luxury travel to remote regions. From 4WD small group journeys around Australia, including the Kimberley and Cape York, to small ship expedition cruising off the remote Coral Coast, Arnhem Land and Kimberley Coast. We will travel again; these places are too special not to share and we look forward to doing it soon,” Hall added.
