Linfox has cemented further investment in the Northern Territory with the construction of the Linfox Darwin Intermodal Facility now complete.
Linfox partnered with Vaughan Constructions to design and construct the facility, which is situated next to the Darwin railhead. The 3,000m2 purpose-built facility will create up to 15 ongoing local jobs.
Site construction was completed in May 2017 and will deliver on Linfox’s environmental commitment with a 100kW battery ready solar system to reduce the site’s carbon emissions. It also features rain water harvesting and high-efficiency LED lighting.
Linfox CEO, Annette Carey, said, “Each year the Intermodal team shifts more than 15 million pallets for Australia’s retailers using its multi-modal freight network.
“Linfox has an extensive footprint in the Northern Territory, with sites in Darwin, Katherine, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs. This new investment increases our capacity and makes it easier for our customers to move inbound and outbound goods throughout the region.
“A chilled storage area will enable temperature controlled products to be safely stored during transit and broadens our cold chain network.”
The Linfox Darwin Intermodal Facility complements the capabilities of Linfox’s long distance road, rail and coastal shipping distribution services, and follows the recent expansion of its Healthcare and Defence logistics capabilities.
