SCT Logistics MD Geoff Smith was joined by leading political, government and other dignitaries for the official opening of his firm’s new Bromelton intermodal facility.

The opening comes seven months after the freight hub received its first cargo on January 21 and there was plenty of local, state and national interest in supporting it.

Smith says the SCT "could not have done it without our federal, state, regional and council support ... but of course my management team and our hard working can do staff. We did this together!"

On hand for the event were deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce, federal Member for Wright Scott Buchholz, Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) MD John Fullerton, Scenic Rim Regional Council mayor Greg Christensen, Queensland MP Glenn Butcher along with Aboriginal elders and representatives, SCT management, staff and 120 guests.

"This event was symbolised with the backdrop of one of our new CSR locomotives, industry leading large wagons and our valued customers’ freight," an SCT spokesperson says.

"All the guests were provided bus tours of the Bromelton facility, provided a firsthand experience of the first train video and all the personal sacrifices endured by SCT Team to achieve this milestone within 12 months."

Christensen notes the importance of investment in such facilities for the transport and logistics industry and its customers.

"Bromelton is a game changing investment," he is quoted as saying.

"It is new engine room for logistics in north New South Wales and south Queensland industries to share and enjoy benefits."
