Freighting giant Toll Group has opened a new $20 million facility at the Port of Fremantle to connect importers and exporters with its network.

Officially opened by Toll Group managing director Brian Kruger and City of Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettit, the intermodal freight facility sits on a 4.3 hectare block in the Rous Head Industrial Park.

The building offers 6,000 square metres of warehouse and cross-dock space, the port’s only public weighbridge, a 2,500 TEU capacity container park, and quarantine and fumigation services.

Developed in partnership with Fremantle Ports Authority, Kruger says the wharf facility will open its doors to Western Australia.

"We can now provide an improved service to our customers in Western Australia and beyond by connecting this new facility with our unmatched national freight network, warehousing, ports and railways, as well as our international freight forwarding services," Kruger says.

Part of an $80 million investment in property by the freight company in the state, Kruger says the building has remotely-monitored electronic security systems and has been built to include energy efficient features such as LED lighting, and rainwater harvesting and recycling.

Toll did not specify how many employees would work at the new facility but currently employs over 3,000 people in the state across 50 locations.
