Tony Innaimo Transport adds K220s, unveils new depot

New Brisbane depot for Tony Innaimo Transport.

General freight carrier, Tony Innaimo Transport, has moved into a new facility in Brisbane.

Located in Berrinba, only minutes from the Logan Motorway, the 95,000m2 site features two 20,000m2 sheds joined together by a 6,000m2 awning over an undercover drive through area for loading and reloading.

There’s also 10,000m2 in pallet racking which brings it in line with the company’s Arndell Park site which features 20,000m2 of shed, with 10,000m2 rack spaces in addition to internal hardstand.

Formerly occupied by CEVA Logistics, the Berrinba facility expands upon Tony Innaimo Transport’s other depots in Canberra, Sydney, Yass, Wagga, Newcastle and Melbourne.

Some 40 linehaul dedicated prime movers and 25 rigids will visit the site over a weekly period to handle unloads and reloads.

There are 28 container docks and nearly 10,000m2 of external hardstand space which makes it a legitimate truck and trailer purposely-built transport depot.

The depot will be used primarily for cross docking. On one side unpacking containers from the wharf, road and rail and building pallets will be performed for the Spotlight Retail Group.

General distribution will take place on the other side of the depot where freight profiles are mixed and matched on the rigid and semis before they go out for deliveries.

The site, leased initially for seven-years, is fully secure with electric fences.

It’s ideal being centralised, according to Jamie Kemp, Queensland State Manager Tony Innaimo Transport, as a depot for the locations in their network.

“There’s a lot of potential here and we’ve got a lot of people who work for Tony’s business who treat it as their own so they’re always striving to do what’s best,” he told Prime Mover.

“Tony is one of the best, most down-to-earth people you can meet. He puts a lot of faith in his people.

“This site opens up a lot of opportunities for growth for the business and people here.”

The fleet has also added one new Kenworth K220 with three more on order this year.

As the business expands owner Tony Innaimo continues to invest in new equipment.

“Everything he buys is new,” said Kemp.

“These K220s come with Icepacks and creature comforts to look after the drivers, automatic gearboxes, Cummins Euro V X15, 600hp, 2.8-metre Big Cab, Meritor axles, custom air coolers, microwave and TV.”
