A NEW empty container depot at Fremantle Port has been opened by Tyne ACFS.
According to a company statement, the development of a 5.6Ha facility on Fremantle Port has been developed by Tzaneros Investments for tenants Tyne ACFS and ACFS Port Logistics.
The empty container depot is said to span across more than 40,000sqm and has been built to boost capacity, productivity and performance.
Key features including queuing lanes for 21 road trains (marked green and red to accommodate for paperless processing), a 1000m2 wash bay, 672m2 repair bay, 900m2 of dedicated survey pad, 36 reefer points and a site capacity for 6147 TEU of empty containers.
There is also direct and inter-connecting access to the North Quay Rail Terminal.
Tyne ACFS director Arthur Tzaneros states called on shipping lines and transport companies to support the new facility.
“The industry as a whole has been eagerly awaiting, and service to industry is at the forefront of our management, employees, technology, equipment and investment made to deliver the most reliable and consistent service offering,” Mr Tzaneros said.
The new site is to be managed by operations manager David Anderson who is said to be well-known in the Perth market.
Tyne ACFS directors Mick and Aaron Powell are also expected to have a significant presence at the newly built facility.
According to Tyne ACFS, this development is expected to significantly increase the capability and productivity of the port, while delivering improved economies for Western Australia.
