It’s the Kalari Way

Why are so many of our Kalari people here for the long haul? Our people feel safe and valued and are trained to be at the top of their game. We don’t have to promote our company – our people are Kalari’s biggest advocates. They’ll be the first to tell you, “it’s just the Kalari way.”

Safety First

No task is worth compromising the safety of our people or the communities in which we operate. From Safety Leadership Programs, our National Safety Summit, Chain of Responsibility practices, to our Safety Awards recognising and rewarding talent…Safety is always number one.

A Workforce Like the Community

We provide a flexible and empowering workplace, an inclusive and equitable culture and a diverse and representative workforce. We employ from the remote and regional communities we service – young and old, from all walks of life and proudly with one of the industry’s highest representations of female and indigenous employees.


We are acutely aware of the role we play in providing long-term benefits, not just for our people and our clients but in the communities in which we operate – be that as catalysts for regional prosperity, employment, partnerships or local participation to deliver long-term value. When the communities in which we operate prosper, so does our business.

We are committed to the sustainable development of our business and we take a long-term view in relationships with our people, our partners, our customers, and our communities.  We work with clients whose overarching approach to local communities is always genuine engagement.

Our Environment

Kalari takes a proactive approach to sustainable development to ensure we don’t grow our business at the expense of the environment.

Focusing on fewer movements and high-tech, high-productivity vehicles means sustainability is always top of mind.

Just some of the ways Kalari reduces our environmental impact:

  • Installing solar panels at our depots throughout Australia
  • Installing LED lights at all our depots
  • Introducing water recycling at our depots

We work closely with our customers to monitor and measure their logistics carbon footprint and help meet the reporting obligations of the resources industry.
