MCS recognises that the logistics industry must embrace the shift to intermodal freight transport as Australia's roads and highways are projected to become progressively more congested with increasing shipping container volumes. We are committed to reducing road freight transport by utilising rail transport resources and infrastructure to improve efficiencies, reduce congestion and provide our customers with more cost-effective solutions.
We work closely with industry to decrease road movements in the port precinct and facilitate more efficient movement by utilising excess capacity on rural train services. Thanks to recently upgraded infrastructure and close proximity to major highways, rail lines and Sydney's major ports, our intermodal terminal allows customers to more efficiently move their goods. Our intermodal terminal services also incorporate the loading and unloading of shipping containers onto trucks or rail wagons for transport beyond our facility or for shipping container storage.
