$23m Adelaide depot for 3PL

Northline will open a new $23 million Adelaide depot, what the company says is South Australia’s first intermodal cargo link.

The purpose-built logistics facility brings together road and rail with a direct access cargo link to Pacific National, Australia’s largest rail operator.

The move to a strategic location alongside the Kilburn railhead will improve transit speed and efficiency by alleviating the need for containers to travel by road between Pacific National and Northline’s facilities.

The new Adelaide depot, which facilitates B-double movements, is also located in close proximity to Adelaide’s north-south road corridor, which is currently being upgraded with a $2.5 billion Federal and State government investment.

It also has 3,500 square metres of warehousing space with modern high-bay racking, along with a 440sqm wash bay and container servicing area.

The facility is located on a 30,000sqm hard stand and will be a Quarantined Approved Premises (QAP), and therefore customs compliant.

Northline chief executive Craige Whitton said the new state-of-the-art 10,440sqm Adelaide transport and logistics facility is an investment in the efficiency and effectiveness for the company’s supply chain.

“Northline recognises the need for a multimodal service to meet customers’ needs that has led us to bringing road and rail closer together as well as ensuring easy access to Australia’s major seaports for import/export.

“With investments made over the last three years, Northline now has one of the most modern networks of transport and logistics depots across mainland Australia.”

Northline’s investment in Adelaide is the final stage of a three-year, $98 million investment in new transport and logistics facilities in four states and territories. The company has also opened new depots in Darwin, Brisbane, Townsville and Sydney, as well as moving into a dedicated depot in Mackay.
