ACFS Port Logistics opens new Western Australia depot

ACFS Port Logistics has announced the opening of its new depot in Hazelmere, Western Australia.

The new location will be a multi-site warehouse and container yard to service a range of ACFS Port Logistics customers for their logistical needs.

It features a 15,000-square-metre warehouse with racking capacity to store 20,484 pallets at various height positions, four recessed docks and a high volume unpack/pack facility.

The location also houses a full container load (FCL) container depot providing a 11,850-square-metre container rated hardstand for approximately 780 TEUs.

This will be supported by the ACFS transport fleet to deliver FCL as a hub and spoke solution for customers in the area, as well as full tautliner load (FTL) and less than container load (LCL) service requirements.

In addition, container yard equipment such as reach stackers will be dedicated to the site to allow a seamless operation.

ACFS Port Logistics said the new depot is another step towards strengthening its position as a trusted partner in the logistics industry.

“We are confident that this expansion will enable us to better serve our clients and contribute to their success,” the company said.

“With this off port expansion, our capabilities across Perth will be more enhanced and our commitment to providing first class on and off the port will be superior in the market.”

The state-of-the-art Hazelmere facility will have a 5 Star Green Star rating with a 99 kW solar system as part of ACFS’ Continuous Improvement Program to reduce its carbon footprint.

The site, according to ACFS Port Logistics, also boasts cutting-edge technology that will allow the team to optimise storage, handling and distribution processes.

This includes live scanning of inventory through WMS (paperless), including integration to medium to large customers and a sophisticated CCTV security system.

The facility also offers 36 power charging points for reefer storage.

“ACFS Port Logistics understands the importance of reliable and streamlined supply chain,” the company said.

“Our team of dedicated professionals is ready to go above and beyond to meet our clients’ needs and deliver exceptional service.”
