South Australian Premier, Peter Malinauskas MP and Linfox Executive Chair, Peter Fox AM launched Linfox’s new multi-million-dollar Adelaide Freight Terminal Facility in Regency Park.

Linfox says the site facilitates the movement of up to 450 shipping containers per week through the connecting interstate cargo link, removing an entire local road transport leg.

The 20,000-plus sqm facility stores and distributes goods for Linfox customers across the grocery, consumer goods, hardware, healthcare, apparel, and parcel sectors.

“Given Australia’s dependence on road transport, there is a growing demand for a sustainable, efficient, and resilient rail freight network,” says Linfox Executive Chair Peter Fox AM.

“This becomes even more critical as freight volumes rise each year. Improving interstate networks is a key priority for Linfox, because so many local industries – from farming, retail and mining to grocery, can benefit.”

“This intermodal facility leverages Adelaide’s unique position as a national freight hub and will result in a more efficient freight system,” says South Australian Premier Peter Malinauskas MP.

“The Linfox facility can receive freight directly by rail from Port Adelaide, Western Australia, the Northern Territory and the eastern states, reducing reliance on our road network.”

Supporting the local community 

The facility is a significant investment in the South Australian economy and:

  • Employs almost 100 South Australians in warehousing, driving, safety, administration and management roles
  • Reduces freight movements on local roads
  • Is an employer of choice, led by Linfox’s values of loyalty, integrity, fairness and trust

Sustainable credentials 

The project is targeting a 5 Star Green Star certification and includes:

  • 700kW solar PV array
  • 500kW battery storage
  • Smart LED lighting
  • Electric vehicle charging
  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Waste management initiatives

Linfox recognises and thanks rail partners, Pacific National and Aurizon as well as construction partner, CIP Construction in bringing this project to life.
