PORT rail freight operator Intermodal Group has celebrated transporting more half a million containers since its inception in 2007.
The group operates two train cycles per day between Fremantle’s North Quay Rail Terminal and Forrestfield Intermodal Terminal, which it says take 2000 trucks of Perth roads every week.
Chairman Jim Stevenson said there were obvious commercial, environmental and social benefits associated with using rail.
“More trucks off the road means reduced road congestion, leading to improved road safety, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and minimised road infrastructure wear and tear,” he said.
The City of Cockburn has called on the State Government to bring forward development of an intermodal facility or container park in Wattleup rather than proceed with Roe 8.
