Silk expands NSW and Qld operations
Silk Contract Logistics ( Silk) has announced the recent launch of its Container Cartage Operations in New South Wales, securing a 20,000sqm site at Yennora which is set to house a purpose- built warehouse.
Silk general manager Joshua Boyd made the announcement in a LinkedIn post, highlighting the company’s plans to make the Yennora facility the centre of its NSW operations.
“With the option to access rail from the Port of Sydney, Silk intends for this business to be the epicentre of its NSW Contract Logistics Operations,” Boyd says.
“This operation will be headed by Adam Hester, a well- known figure in the NSW transport industry.”
Silk also announced the successful acquisition of Brisbane- based Container Swinglift Services ( CSS), a family- owned container transport and warehouse business in Brisbane.
“CSS has a long history in servicing the food and agricultural sector, two market segments in which Silk also has a strong presence, and the addition of the CSS business only further strengthens our position in this market,” Boyd says.
“The acquisition increases the Silk workforce in Queensland by over 70 FTEs, adds additional fleet of 30+ vehicles and over 60 pieces of trailing equipment.”
Boyd also hinted at another development relating to Queensland property coming, involving a purpose- built facility on the Port of Brisbane with direct access to the major shipping terminals.
