Global container shipping firm Hapag-Lloyd will use Botany Intermodal as its primary Sydney empty depot in a new deal with DP World Logistics Australia.

Hapag-Lloyd specialises in reefer cargo, dangerous goods and special cargo projects.

The new partners are currently conducting system interface testing before operations begin.

"We are thrilled to announce Hapag-Lloyd as our cornerstone customer," DP World Australia COO logistics Mark Hulme says.

"Botany Intermodal is committed to delivering Hapag-Lloyd exceptional service levels going forward.

"We’re proud to offer Sydney’s only 24x7 empty container park operation."

Covering 15.3 hectares, Botany Intermodal is one of the largest empty container parks in Sydney and operates from two locations: Park 1, at 1890 Botany Road and Park 2, at Bumborah Point.

The site’s strategic location in Port Botany provides significant opportunities for industry to reduce their operating costs, with a broad range of services and fast access to Sydney’s container terminals.

Botany Intermodal services include:

  • washing containers, ISO tanks and road tankers to specific customer requirements;
  • repair and upgrade of containers to food quality/DPI standards;
  • repair of damaged containers;
  • storage of empty and full containers;
  • loading and unloading of rail freight and offer storage solutions for containers ahead of vessel receival windows;
  • out-of-gauge storage and handling, including receiving, lashing and delivering nonstandard goods;
  • storage of containers at considerably lower rates than terminal storage.
