Linx Cargo Care Group (LCCG) is partnering with a pair of intermodal operators on expanded services from its Enfield Intermodal Logistics Centre terminal.

LCCG pledges a "new arterial avenue for Australia’s grain farmers in the Central West" as part of the move, partnering with Bathurst Intermodal Rail Terminal (BIRT) operator CWLT Logistics to enable new services between Sydney and Bathurst, with Forbes next in line.

As part of the expansion, LCCG has opened on-site fumigation services to streamline the process from ports to rail and reduce traffic, while enabling aligned service provider ACFS Port Logistics (ACFS) to undertake rural and regional tailgate inspections at the terminal.

"The LINX Intermodal Terminal is becoming a one-stop shop for Australia’s supply chain backbone, enabling greater sustainability, reduced traffic and improved rail access between the Central West and Sydney," LCCG executive general manager customer and business development Carlo Cutinelli says.

"The continued investment from LINX Cargo Care Group as well as NSW Ports into the infrastructure both at the LINX Intermodal Terminal and the ports is paying off, with our farmers the first to benefit."

LCCG says grain farmers in the Central West will be the key early beneficiaries of the Sydney to Bathurst service and rural tailgate inspection services, with a quicker turnaround to the ports now possible.

"This is further streamlining the supply chain between Australia’s heartland and key export markets, and it’s also reducing the impacts of traffic on regional roads and around the ports," Cutinelli says.

The expansion of capabilities at the LINX Intermodal Terminal is set to reduce the impact of two-truck movements, as well as the overall number of trucks, around Botany.

ACFS CEO Arthur Tzaneros says customers in NSW’s central west will benefit from the overall productivity and capability of the Linx Intermodal Terminal.

"With the support and alliance of many of the major shipping lines, upgrade and repair facilities, as well as the key strength of 3 x 900m tracks which allows for the service of 1.8m trains, this provides a distinct advantage in the LINX Intermodal Terminal service that will reap benefits for the Central West service, and its related customers," Tzaneros says.

"Furthermore, customers can now also receive an end-to-end service on imports, further streamlining the port to rail process on the port shuttle that is serviced via the dedicated freight line, while complying with all relevant import regulations."
