Silk Contract Logistics unveils new WA facility

Silk Contract Logistics has officially opened its new transport facility in Western Australia.

The Kenwick site, located five kilometres from Perth’s International and Domestic Airport and 15 minutes inland east of Fremantle Port, sits on an area site of 43,509m².

It has direct rail access, some 5000m² container hardstand for stacking boxes up to five high and 16 refrigerated container charging stations.

A super awning and extended canopy features two 86 metre drive-in lanes for loading/unloading of vehicles without the need to reverse.

“Thanks to the collective efforts and the unwavering support from Silk’s national and local teams, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve not only completed the project ahead of schedule but also under budget and with valued customers ready to commence,” the company said in a statement.

The 23,615m² warehouse has provision for 33,000 racked pallet spaces, eight container docks and incorporates four site office facilities including port, distribution, contract logistics and Western Australia operating headquarters.

The Kenwick facility is designed to a 6 Green Star rating. At present there is only 12 of these facilities in Australia.

The material handling fleet will be powered by Lithium-Ion batteries charged by a solar panels system.

Silk’s partners on the project included Capstone Construction, Hesperia, Total Project Management, Propertysolve and Cundall.
