Toll supports expansion of containerised freight routes
Transport and logistics company, Toll Group, has committed to improving freight efficiencies by strategically investing in its supply chains.
Toll is a key partner in the recently established commercial container shipping route that transports cargo direct from Singapore to Dampier in the state’s north.
This solution is reported to provide Toll operators and suppliers in remote parts of North-West Australia with the opportunity to move materials and goods to and from Singapore for a fraction of the time and cost of the usual supply chain channels.
“We’re proud to support this solution with access to the Toll Dampier Supply Base, with its established quarantine facilities and Approved Arrangement in place to accommodate commodity importation,” said Toll.
The launch of Toll’s Shared Vessel Service from Toll Dampier Supply Base has prompted new ideas with its customers to broaden the offering of this direct to Asia service.
Toll is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and is investigating options to ease its reliance on road transportation in its logistics network.
“This service allows direct entry of material and freight to Dampier, reducing the double and triple handling of freight out of Perth, simplifying and re-risking the supply chain,” Toll Group General Manager Upstream Oil and Gas in Global Logistics Energy, Chris Trowbridge.
Partnering with a global supply chain, according to Toll, also enables businesses to move their goods beyond Singapore and Western Australia.
Touted as one of the largest ocean freight forwarders in Asia Pacific, Toll provides a global network with offshore bases and logistics sites across the Asia Pacific, Europe and America, linking supply chains across multiple geographies.
Toll has been providing logistics services to the energy industry for more than 30 years.
“After acquiring the Dampier Supply Base in 2017, we’ve continued to invest in reinvigorating and upgrading the facility given the important role it plays in connecting the industry to the region and beyond,” said Toll.
