Freight forwarder Toll Intermodal, part of the Toll Group, has officially opened its landmark intermodal freight facility in Perth.

The 55,000 sqm facility is a hub for freight moved by road, rail and sea, and cost around $47 million.

Toll Domestic Forwarding divisional director Paul Ebsworth says the company recognises the growing appetite for intermodal movement of freight in Australia and is investing to take full advantage.

"Toll Intermodal's Kewdale site is part of a comprehensive, national intermodal service offering for our customers from Cairns to Perth."

Toll worked with Asciano's rail division, Pacific National Rail, located next to the Toll site, to implement the Cargo Link concept, directly transferring freight between sites without using the road.

The direct interface between the two sites reduces container-handling times and enables the faster and more efficient delivery of freight.

"We have reduced truck journeys between sites by around 400 trips each week. We're running a more efficient business that also provides a better service to our customers," Ebsworth adds.
