Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
The 'Greater Freighter', an almost six metre tall High Cube rail van, will be hitting Australia's freight network soon.
SCT Logistics has recently completed compliance testing on the Greater Freighter, the largest cubic capacity rail freight van to operate in Australia.
SCT developed the concept to meet the freight demands of its client, Big W, and the specific transportation of their product from their DC in Monarto, South Australia, to their Western Australian retail centres.
SCT Logistics CEO Geoff Smith says the vans will provide a new benchmark for the cubic rail market in Australia.
"The vans are fully racked and offer synergies for the nation's cubic market, and SCT Logistics believe they will exceed all other rail transport methods in Australia," Smith says.
"As a company, SCT Logistics is always excited to have the opportunity to push the boundaries of innovation within the Australian rail and transport industry, and welcomes the opportunity of tailoring both rail and general transport equipment to the specific needs of its client base.
"We are endeavouring to improve our services and improve our ability to meet customer requirements in an ever changing supply chain."
SCT has placed an initial order for 32 units. The company expect a further similar sized order to follow in the near future.
The development and construction of the Greater Freighter follows on the back of SCT's recently developed Multi Freighter, a slightly lower version unit, which is able to operate between Victoria and Western Australia, as well as throughout the East Coast of Australia.
