DP World launches new rail service at Australian terminal

DP World has announced the development of its Australian activities with the inauguration of a new rail service at Stockland’s Yennora Intermodal Terminal.

The Terminal hosted an official ribbon-cutting ceremony on 20 May, attended by Julia Finn, Member for Granville (NSW), Parliamentary Secretary to the NSW Premier; Amna Al-Suwaidi, Deputy Head of Mission, Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Australia; Nicolaj Noes, Executive Vice President, Oceania, DP World; Tarun Gupta, Managing Director and CEO, Stockland; and Marika Calfas, CEO, NSW Ports.

From 20 May, the Yennora Intermodal Terminal will reportedly provide two direct train services to and from Port Botany every day via a dedicated DP World-owned and managed rail route.

To achieve greater efficiency, the daily port-rail service will manage an annual rail capacity of 160,000 TEU. It is also predicted to eliminate up to 160 truck journeys every day, resulting in fewer total emissions.
