Mainfreight unveils new Sydney warehouse


Logistics and transport company Mainfreight has announced the opening of a new 55,000 sqm warehouse within the Moorebank Intermodal Terminal.

The new space is strategically located inside the terminal in Sydney’s south-west to enable Mainfreight’s team to deliver smooth and efficient services to customers.

The site offers improved warehousing and wharf operations, combining them under one roof alongside 70,000 racked pallet spaces, 35,000 of which are specifically built for temperature sensitive freight such as pharmaceuticals.

The facility is also equipped to store and handle hazardous and retail dangerous goods, while a customs bonded warehouse is joined by satellite racking for condensed storage and autonomous mobile robotics (AMR) to improve efficiency.

These robots operate autonomously within a designated grid or pick path environment, picking up shelves of products without human involvement.

Located 32km from Port Botany, the journey takes just over 40 minutes in good traffic condition, allowing for a faster trip to and from the port.

Mainfreight says its new Sydney 3PL warehouse allows for streamlined freight management, cost savings for customers, sustainability and increased efficiency.

Alongside certain licencing such as ISO 9001 certification, HACCP accreditation and underbond licencing, Mainfreight is also committed to sustainability through the site with solar panels, electric trucks and chargers, smart lighting and rainwater storage all included.
