DP World has announced it is expanding its Australian operations with the launch of a new rail service at Stockland’s Yennora Intermodal Terminal.

DP World held an official ribbon cutting ceremony yesterday at the terminal, which is one of the largest logistics facilities in the Southern Hemisphere.

From this week onwards, the Yennora Intermodal Terminal will offer two direct rail services to and from Port Botany per day on a dedicated rail line that is operated and owned by DP World.

The daily port-rail service will then be expected to manage an annual rail capacity of 160,000 20-foot cargo shipping containers (TEUs) to achieve higher efficiencies, reducing up to 160 truck trips per day and lowering emissions.

“At DP World, we are establishing our own assets and building infrastructure where it’s needed to create seamless connections and provide increased control and flexibility,” DP World Oceania executive vice president Nicolaj Noes says.

“Our partnership with Stockland and expanded presence at the Yennora Intermodal Terminal means that we can offer services that suit the growing needs of our customers, and they can better rely on us to ensure their goods are delivered in a timely manner.”

The significant milestone will see DP World provide an integrated supply chain solution across landside operations, contract logistics and freight forwarding.

DP World says its enhanced logistics capabilities will provide cost efficiencies, reduce transit times and improve supply chain resilience.

Stockland’s Yennora Intermodal Terminal covers more than 70 hectares just 30 kilometres west from Sydney’s CBD.

The move follows DP World’s strategic partnership with Stockland in August last year to operate a warehousing facility and dedicated port-rail service.

“We’re delighted to be a partner in DP World’s growth strategy in Australia, and proud to support the launch of their rail business at the Yennora Intermodal Terminal,” Stockland CEO and managing director Tarun Gupta says.

“The terminal’s direct connection to ports, roads and rail improves the logistics that businesses need in serving their customers.

“Its scale also enables DP World and its customers to take advantage of the growing economic opportunities in the region.

“We look forward to continuing our work with DP World to bring to life the life exciting vision of the Yennora Intermodal Terminal.”
