Mainfreight opens Sydney warehouse at Moorebank Intermodal Terminal

Mainfreight has opened a 55,000sqm warehouse, combining its warehousing and wharf operations under one roof, at the newly opened Moorebank Intermodal Terminal in Sydney’s south-west.

The location allows its wharf operations direct access to Port Botany via the rail system, significantly reducing container freight transit times from the port, Mainfreight said in a statement.

“Our investment in this new facility and the latest warehousing technology enables our team to deliver smooth and efficient services to our customers.”

The direct port to warehouse solution also eliminates road tolls, fuel surcharges and reduces cartages costs in comparison to road transport, said Mainfreight.

By taking advantage of both wharf services and warehousing facilities, you can also expedite the process of returning your containers.

“Our facility accommodates overnight and weekend containers, minimising delays. This grants you access to preferential timeslots not available with our competitors, reducing the chance of significant delays.”

The warehouse has capacity for 70,000 racked pallet spaces and is equipped to store and handle a wide range of hazardous and retail dangerous goods.

Mainfreight said it has also invested in autonomous mobile robotics at the facility.

“These robots operate autonomously within a designated grid or pick path environment, picking up shelves of products without human involvement.”

The site also boasts a customs bonded warehouse in which imported dutiable merchandise can be stored without payment of duty for up to five years from the date of importation.

The massive Moorebank complex officially opened earlier this month and when fully operational aims to take 3000 trucks off Sydney roads each day.
