Interstate transport and contract logistics provider, Cameron Group, has officially opened its new facility located at Marsden Park in Western Sydney.
Strategically located close to motorway links and the under-construction Western Sydney Airport, the $20 million Cameron Interstate complex is located on 30,000 square metres of property with this first stage having 6,200 metres of under-cover space, almost double the 3,200 metres of undercover at the previous Cameron Sydney base at nearby Glendenning from where it operated for the past 11 years.
Based in Victoria, the Cameron Group continues to expand its national footprint as it meets the ever-growing freight requirements of its clients.
The new facility in Sydney is a further indication of Cameron’s commitment to provide high levels of service and efficiency.
Currently the new facility is staffed by 60 employees who are supported by 65 contractors and the site handles an average of 25 B-doubles of freight every 24 hours.
Plans are already in place to commence construction of an additional warehouse on an adjoining site within 12 months.
The Cameron fleet has grown to around 1,200 trucks of its own plus sub-contractors and Founder and Executive Chairman Glen Cameron was grateful for all of his team’s efforts in addressing the industry’s upheavals during the pandemic.
“We’ve all had plenty of challenges over the last couple of years and for our business to remain focused and deliver quality services and to grow over these challenging times has been quite remarkable,” Cameron said.
“I’m really proud of what they have achieved collectively and I am extremely proud of how the brand name has been held by the people in the industry and in this business. We’re very fortunate to align ourselves with great customers. We’ve got customers who started dealing with me in the late ’70s.”
Present at the opening ceremony, which was attended by staff, clients and local dignitaries, was Assistant Minister for Road Safety and Freight Transport, Scott Buchholz who complimented the Cameron Group for its commitment and investment.
“This new, expanded location in Marsden Park is a clear investment in the future of road transport in Australia and I congratulate Glen Cameron and his entire team. It is great to see the Cameron Group leading the way on investment in infrastructure for the sector,” said Buchholz.
“Throughout the global pandemic, businesses such as the Glen Cameron Group have kept Australia moving, getting vital product where it needs to be. Every product in Australia has a road freight component.”
Cameron took the opportunity to reiterate the Cameron Group’s commitment to road freight transport, the supply chain and to safety.
“After 47 years, I am as committed to this industry as I have ever been and seeing this site come to fruition is exciting and underscores the importance of road transport to the national economy,” he said.
