Aurizon began operations at the Enfield Intermodal Logistics Centre in western Sydney on May 9. The operator said the transfer of its intermodal business from Yennora would allow it to expand its interstate services and pave the way for the introduction of shuttle services to and from Port Botany.
The 60 ha site is 18 km from Port Botany, close to the M4 and M5 motorways. It includes an intermodal terminal, warehouses and vacant land for the development of rail-related warehousing, freight forwarding, import-export and distribution facilities.
‘We are creating a new Aurizon intermodal hub with greater competitiveness, productivity and safety’, said Mauro Neves, Excutive Vice-President Commercial & Marketing. ‘The site supports longer trains, improved scheduling and cycle times, and less train shunting. It means faster transit time on the Melbourne, Brisbane and North Queensland corridors and gives us an opportunity to target increased volumes for both north-south and east-west interstate operations. This move is a genuine investment in our customers and signals to the intermodal market that Aurizon is in this business for the long haul and is in growth mode.’
