Linfox has today launched its new multi-million-dollar Adelaide Freight Terminal Facility in Regency Park.
The site facilitates the movement of up to 450 shipping containers per week through the connecting interstate cargo link, removing an entire local road transport leg.
The over 20,000-square-metre facility stores and distributes goods for Linfox customers across the grocery, consumer goods, hardware, healthcare, apparel and parcel sectors.
Attending the event with South Australia Premier Peter Malinauskas, Linfox Executive Chair, Peter Fox, highlighted the importance of the new facility’s launch.
“Given Australia’s dependence on road transport, there is a growing demand for a sustainable, efficient, and resilient rail freight network,” he said.
“This becomes even more critical as freight volumes rise each year.
“Improving interstate networks is a key priority for Linfox, because so many local industries – from farming, retail and mining to grocery, can benefit.”
The site was built to achieve 5 Star Green Start certification and includes:
700kW solar PV array
500kW battery storage
Smart LED lighting
Electric vehicle charging
Waste management initiatives
According to Linfox, the facility is a significant investment in the SA economy.
It employs almost 100 people in warehousing, driving, safety, administration and management roles, and reduces freight movements on local roads.
