Linfox invests in Darwin intermodal facility

Linfox has announced that it is investing in the construction of the Linfox Darwin Intermodal Facility in Australia’s Northern Territory.

Situated next to the Darwin freight terminals, the 3,000 sq m purpose-built facility is expected to create up to 15 ongoing local jobs. 

Linfox CEO, Annette Carey, said, “Each year the Intermodal team shifts more than 15m 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 is reported to complement the capabilities of Linfox’s long distance road, rail and coastal shipping distribution services and follows the recent expansion of its Healthcare and Defense logistics capabilities.

Site construction was completed in May 2017 and the facility feature a solar system to reduce the site’s carbon emissions, as well as rain water harvesting and high-efficiency LED lighting.

Linfox partnered with Vaughan Constructions to design and construct the facility.
