Parcel and logistics service provider TNT has opened its new state-of-the-art super hub in Sydney’s Erskine Park in Australia.
The new 840,000ft² facility has ultra modern sorting technology that is capable of sorting up to 25,000 parcels per hour. This includes incompatible freight items in excess of 4.9ft and 66 lb. The super hub also includes 323,000ft² of warehouse space and has automatic pallet deconsolidation process capabilities.
Marco van Kalleveen, managing director, TNT domestics division, said, “This new super hub enables us to streamline processes and implement some of the most advanced parcel sortation systems available. The reduced processing times, increased accuracy and faster delivery outcomes will help us provide even better service to our customers.”
The Erskine Park site in western Sydney was chosen in part for its proximity to many of TNT’s high volume customers. It has direct freeway connectivity to both Brisbane and Melbourne and also has the capacity to absorb high volumes of domestic priority freight, making it well equipped to handle freight from the proposed Badgerys Creek Airport nearby. The new super hub employs 450 members of staff, many of which are from the local area.
