A new $20 million intermodal freight facility has been formally opened by Toll this week. The new site, in the Port of Fremantle, is aimed at offering importers and exporters improved access to Toll’s national freight network.
The facility, built on 4.3 hectares in the Rous Head Industrial Park includes a 6,000 m2 warehouse and cross-dock, a 2,500 TEU capacity container park, quarantine and fumigation services, and a public weighbridge, the only one at the port.
Toll Group Managing Director Brian Kruger was joined by City of Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt to officially open the facility, which has been developed for the Toll Intermodal business in partnership with Fremantle Ports Authority.
“We can now provide an improved service to our customers in Western Australia and beyond by connecting this new facility with our unmatched national freight network, warehousing, ports and railways, as well as our international freight forwarding services,” said Kruger.
“I am excited to open this newest addition to Toll’s network and look forward to continuing to deliver first-class services from this first-class facility.”
The new facility includes remotely-monitored electronic security systems as well as energy efficient features such as LED lighting and rainwater harvesting and recycling.
Toll’s investment in this new facility is part of more than $80 million, which has been spent on recent major property investments and upgrades to reinforce Toll’s capabilities in Western Australia.
Kruger thanked the Fremantle Ports Authority and builder Ahrens for helping to develop the Fremantle facility.
