Aurizon begins operations at Enfield

Rail operator Aurizon has started operations at its new Enfield Intermodal Logistics Centre (ILC) in Sydney’s west.

Aurizon has relocated its intermodal freight business to Enfield, from its current location at Yennora.

The Queensland-based operator says the move will allow it to grow and expand its interstate service, and in the future introduce port shuttle services.

“At Enfield in Western Sydney we are creating a new Aurizon intermodal hub with greater competitiveness, productivity and safety,” Aurizon’s Mauro Neves said on May 9.

“The site supports longer trains, improved scheduling and cycle times, and less train shunting.

“It means faster transit time on the Melbourne, Brisbane and North Queensland corridors and gives us an opportunity to target increased volumes for both north-south and east-west interstate operations.

“This move is a genuine investment in our customers and signals to the intermodal market that Aurizon is in this business for the long haul and is in growth mode.”

Aurizon says the 60 hectare Enfield ILC is a ‘turn-key’ site.

Enfield is 18 kilometres from Port Botany, with a dedicated freight line to the port, and with direct access to the interstate mainline corridor.

The site includes an intermodal terminal, warehousing and buildings with vacant land for the development of rail related warehousing, freight forwarding, import-export (IMEX), transport and distribution facilities.
