Freight company Northline has established its own rail and road hub at the Katherine Rail Terminal on the Victoria Highway. The facility, opened last month, creates a local hub for road, rail and intermodal operations, and provides services such as general freight, express freight, produce, cars, u-pack-it and storage.
It is the latest step in the company's vision of creating a strategic national network of freight distribution centres.
Northline chief operating officer Phillip Taylor says the company's presence in Katherine provided local customers with the confidence of safe, cost-effective, reliable and efficient transport services. "Our fully integrated national freight network gives customers the certainty that their product will get to the markets fast and fresh."
