NSW Ports launches new empty container park at Botany

NSW Ports has announced that it continues to invest in the creation of sustainable and efficient port supply chains with the construction of a new 2.4 hectare empty container park at Port Botany.

Located within the port on Simblist Road, the new empty container park is leased by Tyne Container Services and will operate 24/7, providing a full-service facility when it opens in June 2020. It adjoins the existing Tyne (MT Movements) container park to effectively ‘super-size’ the site, delivering an additional 5,000TEU in empty container capacity.

NSW Ports CEO Marika Calfas said the decision to utilise the port land for empty container storage will deliver much needed empty container capacity to support growth and efficiencies in the container supply chain.

Tyne container services director, Aaron Powell commented, “The new empty container park will have capacity to handle both empty containers bound for overseas re-deployment as well as empty containers for re-use as full exports.”

Construction of the new empty container park was delivered by Ward Civil and took four months to complete.
