Port of Brisbane trials first double stacked container vehicle

Australia’s first double stacked container vehicle trialled at Port of Brisbane

Global logistics company, Qube Logistics, has successfully trialled its new Super B Double Double Stacked vehicle at the Port of Brisbane.

Conducted under stringent safety and operational conditions, the trial saw the vehicle carry eight empty containers on a defined route within Qube’s port facilities and limited public port roads.

It is the first time a double stacked container vehicle has been trialed on public roads in Australia, according to the company’s statement.

The trial was carried out under a temporary permit from NHVR and temporary consent from PBPL as the port’s road manager.

“This is a fantastic outcome for Qube and all parties involved today,” said Stephens.

He added that it is a clear demonstration of the collaboration and innovation being achieved by Qube Logistics customers and partners at the port that’s enhancing efficiency in their operations.

“As Port Manager, one of our key priorities is investing in infrastructure to support supply chain efficiency,” explained Stephens.

“We were pleased to deliver road improvement works and upgrade the access/egress to a number of facilities to support this new vehicle and Qube’s innovation.”

Under its current permit and consent conditions, the new double stacked vehicle will transport empty containers on a defined route within Qube’s facility and limited public port roads.

In February 2021, the Port of Melbourne and Qube signed a short-term agreement which made available empty container park (ECP) capacity for up to 9,000 TEU.
