Linfox has secured eight hectares of prime industrial Perth real estate at Hazelmere to develop a supersite for its growing resources industry customer base.
Linfox CEO, Michael Byrne said, “The supersite will be a state-of-the-art facility designed to support the booming needs of resources projects in Western Australia.”
The $68 million development builds on two years of Linfox investment in logistics services for WA resources companies.
“Linfox has built a strong position in the WA industry in the last two years. By 2013 our investment in specialised fleet, property and equipment will exceed $200 million.”
“This is a major advance in our specialisation for the resources sector. Linfox has raised the bar in quality service for the industry and has developed a reputation for operational excellence and safety.”
Hazelmere provides highly efficient access to major highways for Linfox’s double road trains. The supersite will begin operating early next year.
Linfox has also secured a site at Port Hedland to meet customers’ requirements to and from the port and has access to a depot in Newman.
“We are considering four further property developments in Karratha, Dampier, Broome and Darwin in the coming year. We will build the freight network capacity to manage long term growth in the industry.”
Linfox is also developing its capacity to service mining, oil and gas projects in the Northern Territory and Queensland. The property developments are managed in conjunction with the Linfox Property Group.
Linfox has serviced remote resource operations for more than a decade. Today its resources customers include BHP Billiton in Western Australia and South Australia and Fortescue Metals Group. It also partners Agility Logistics to service WA’s Gorgon gas field development.
