RAIL TRANSPORTATION

MCS has been servicing rail since 1993 and currently has the largest holding of various empty shipping containers in Sydney. This, in addition to our modern upgraded facility, allows us to cater for your rail transport requirements.

Utilising excess capacity on rural train services, and with the introduction of our Sydney Flyer port shuttle services, MCS continues to work closely with rail operators to reduce the number of road freight transport moving between Port Botany and Cooks River providing our customers with cost efficiencies.
