Silk Contract Logistics opens new WA facility

Silk Contract Logistics has officially opened its new transport facility at Kenwick, Western Australia.

Located just five kilometres from Perth’s International and Domestic Airport and 15 minutes from Fremantle Port, the new facility sits on a site that’s over 43,500 square metres.

It has direct rail access, around 5000 square metres of container hardstand for stacking boxes up to five high and 16 refrigerated container charging stations.

There are also two 86 metre drive-in lanes for loading/unloading of vehicles without the need to reverse.

“Thanks to the collective efforts and the unwavering support from Silk’s national and local teams, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve not only completed the project ahead of schedule but also under budget and with valued customers ready to commence,” the company said.

The Kenwick facility is designed to a 6 Green Star rating. There are currently only 12 of these facilities in Australia.

The material handling fleet will be powered by lithium-ion batteries charged by a solar panel system.
