NSW Ports announces that LINX Cargo Care Group will take over intermodal operations at the Enfield Intermodal Terminal.
“With a key objective for NSW Ports being an increase in the volume of containers moved by rail to and from Port Botany, ensuring a strong intermodal business at Enfield is important. LINX brings intermodal experience and customers to continue growing rail mode share to and from the port,” said NSW Ports CEO Marika Calfas.
LINX Cargo Care Group CEO Anthony Jones said “The port shuttle service LINX will operate between Enfield and Port Botany will reduce traffic congestion in Sydney by taking freight off roads and moving it by rail from the port to Enfield, a major freight precinct in Sydney’s central-west.
“We aim to fully optimise the Enfield operation to offer a dedicated port shuttle service to Port Botany, a freight hub to connect regional trains to Sydney Metro and a dedicated empty container park service.”
“Operations will transition from current operator, Aurizon, to LINX in early 2018. Aurizon and LINX will be supporting a seamless handover process so that there is continuity of operations for existing customers.” Ms Calfas said.
“LINX will work closely with NSW Ports and Goodman to support the development of a freight hub on the land surrounding the Enfield Intermodal Terminal,” Mr Jones said.
Enfield’s location is a strategic staging ground for container imports from Port Botany and exports from regional NSW.
Enfield ILC (Intermodal Logistics Centre), owned by NSW Ports, is set on 60 hectares of prime industrial zoned land located in central west Sydney. The site encompasses the Enfield Intermodal Terminal (to be operated by LINX) and 30 hectares of serviced industrial land, ready for warehousing development by NSW Ports in partnership with the Goodman Group.
