Intermodal Port-Rail Shuttles linked to Salta Properties' Intermodal Hubs
Salta’s Inland Ports Solution – Nexus Industrial
As the volumes of containers arriving and leaving our ports increase, the challenge for the next decade is moving freight into and out of the ports. Dual road and rail metropolitan intermodal terminals linked directly to the port will help solve the freight/logistics challenge of the future. These fully integrated logistic hubs, provide more efficient import/export supply chains by; reducing the number of trucks on congested roads; improving safety; and delivering lower supply chain costs to customers.
The State’s freight and logistics plan, Victoria – The Freight State, outlines the long-term strategy to improve freight efficiency, grow productivity and better connect Victorian businesses with their markets. The plan is based on the development of an efficient, dedicated rail terminal at the Port of Melbourne connected to a system of private intermodal terminals within existing freight precincts at Somerton, Altona and Dandenong South.
Nexus Industrial in Dandenong South and Altona will house intermodal hubs at which Salta Properties can develop pre-lease distribution centres and warehousing facilities to any scale and the proposed rail links to the Port enable companies to minimise container freight costs.
Both intermodal hubs will provide direct access to the Port of Melbourne via VicRoads-endorsed road corridors for High Productivity Freight Vehicles (HPFVs) or traditional road freight operations along with access to regular port freight rail services.
The Intermodal concept is explained visually in this 3 minute video.
