Cameron Group cuts ribbon on new Sydney depot


The Glen Cameron Group, an interstate transport and contract logistics business, has officially expanded its logistics footprint with the new site opened in Marsden Park, Sydney.

Assistant Minister for Road Safety and Freight Transport, Scott Buchholz joined Glen Cameron, founder and executive chairman of the group, to officially open the new depot yesterday.

Buchholz said the new facility at Marsden Park was a signal that the Australian freight, transport, and logistics sector was growing.

“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,” he said.

“Right here, we are on some 30,089 square metres of land, 6100 square metres of which is under cover, and 10,750 square metres of yard area, providing greater capacity to move and transfer critical freight.

“It is great to see the Cameron Group leading the way on investment in infrastructure for the sector. I am informed we will see some 120 linehaul movements per week out of this site.”

Cameron thanked Buchholz for attending the site and reiterate the group’s commitment to road freight transport, the supply chain and to safety.

“As you may know I have a long family history in road transport as my father brought Kenworth Trucks into this country way back in 1962,” Cameron said.

“After 50 years, I am as committed to this industry as I have ever been and seeing this site come to fruition is exciting, it is double the size of the previous site and underscores the importance of road transport to the national economy.

“On this site today we have 60 staff, supported by 65 contractors and each week we will see 120 or more loaded B-doubles move out of Marsden Park, an integral part of Cameron Interstate operations.”

Buchholz thanked everyone across the supply chain for the critically important work they were doing, from warehousing to road transport operators.

“The road transport sector has helped build this country, no matter what part of history we look back on, trucks and transport have been critical to the growth of our nation and our economy,” he said.

“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’s Transport runs a fleet of around 1200 trucks and trailers supported by 600 sub-contractors, that is a big part of our road fleet and I thank them for their investment in our economy, in jobs and for the role they have played in the supply chain.”
