Region. Movement of containers

Sydney Ports is investing $97.4 million in the development of the Enfield Intermodal Logistics Centre (ILC) to boost the transit of containers. Currently, 85 per cent of containers through Port Botany originate from or are bound for a destination within 40 kilometres of the port. May was the highest ever May monthly throughput and the eighth consecutive monthly record in Sydney Ports’ container trade history, reaching an increase of 7.9 per cent on the same month last year. The ILC is part of a network of existing and planned intermodal terminal facilities in Sydney and would service around a quarter of the total intermodal demand. The project is expected to commence operations progressively during 2011, and to be fully operational in 2012.
