Due to its remote island location, the majority of supplies are delivered by truck over an eight-week period spanning from February to March on 300 kilometers of ice road stretching north from Yellowknife to the mine site. In order to successfully supply this project, the CRH Canada logistics team established a secure supply chain to deliver cement over a total distance of approximately 5,000km. Cement from CRH’s Edmonton Cement Terminal in Alberta was shipped using bulk trucks to one of our bagging customers where it was transferred to 1.8 tonne tote bags.
