The Australian Logistics Council has welcomed the industry launch of the Moorebank Logistics Park as a "watershed moment in the continuing transformation of Australia's freight networks (that) will drive efficiency improvements and job growth in the years ahead". 

"Given the Federal Budget's significant investment in freight infrastructure and the continuing development of the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy, it's an auspicious moment to mark the establishment of what will become the nation's largest intermodal freight precinct," says Michael Kilgariff, ALC managing director.

"This nationally significant project, which was included on Infrastructure Australia's Infrastructure Priority List, and according to government figures, is expected to create some 6,800 jobs and deliver $11 billion in economic benefits over the next three decades. The strategic location of this site, at the very heart of NSW's freight network, is second to none." 

"The solution to meeting our growing freight task, reducing road congestion and improving community amenity lies in establishing more efficient road and rail connections from ports to intermodal facilities," he adds.

Kilgariff says the Moorebank facility is central to reducing congestion and meeting freight requirements around Sydney's heavily-congested M5 corridor. "At the same time, its ability to transport 1.5 million TEU each year from Port Botany by rail will support the NSW Government's goal of boosting rail freight to and from that port from its current 18% to around 30%. Likewise, it accords with NSW Ports' objective of moving 3 million TEU by rail by 2045."
