Logistics company Supply LINQ has opened its state-of-the-art $12 million facility in Lynbrook on the basis the Victorian Government will follow through on its promise to build an intermodal hub near Dandenong.

The Brumby Government's is expected to announce the construction of an intermodal hub as part of the State's transport plan to be released this month.

Strategic Advisor to the board at Supply LINQ John Edhouse says the warehouse represents the future in freight tracking technology.
"[The Lynbrook warehouse] is at the leading edge of systems capabilities in regards to moving stock," he says.

Operations Manager Brian Dickson says tthe floor managers are contactable around the clock so clients can liaise with managers to track orders from shipping through to tracking the stock at its final destination.

Parliamentary Secretary for Roads and Ports Martin Pakula was present at the opening, and he used the opportunity to speak about the State’s strategy to combat the growing freight task.

Pakula also indicated the transport plan may be released in the coming weeks.

The multi-outlet retail specialists’ new facility features the same high-end RFID technology used by the defence force.

Representatives from Coles, Myer, David Jones, Kmart and Target attended the event.
