Wholly-owned by the Australian Government, National Intermodal is responsible for ensuring the Government’s investment into world class, open access precincts such as the Moorebank Intermodal Precinct deliver sustainable supply chain solutions for future generations.
The Australian Government has provided both land and capital in support of the Moorebank Intermodal Precinct and holds interests in both the land and rail services being developed on site.
The Australian Government requires that the Moorebank IMEX and Interstate Terminals operating within the MIP are designed and operated as common user facilities. This means they are available to all potential users on non-discriminatory terms.
Moorebank Intermodal Precinct is proudly brought to you by LOGOS, Qube and National Intermodal.
As the investment and development partner for Moorebank Intermodal Precinct, LOGOS is responsible for the development of the site, including the land and warehouses, and works closely alongside logistics and infrastructure company Qube Holdings and National Intermodal.
Qube is responsible for the rail assets and operation of Moorebank Intermodal Precinct’s IMEX Terminal and construction of the Interstate Terminal, which will operate under a Joint Venture Entity between Qube, LOGOS and National Intermodal.
In addition to its role as the Commonwealth-backed logistics infrastructure developer, National Intermodal is directly responsible for delivering the Moorebank Avenue Realignment, a new four lane public road wrapping around the precinct. They are also responsible for conservation management of approximately 100 hectares of biobanking land acting as a natural buffer between the precinct and neighbouring residential communities.
The LAMV Fund (Logos Australia Moorebank Venture) is comprised of world-class investors and asset managers – AustralianSuper, AXA IM Alts, Ivanhoé Cambridge and TCorp (NSW Treasury Corporation).
Leading Asia-Pacific logistics specialist LOGOS and its partners announced during July 2021 the signing of a binding agreement with Qube (ASX:QUB) for acquisition of Australia’s largest intermodal logistics facility at Moorebank in south-western Sydney for c.$1.67 billion.
The acquisition of Moorebank Intermodal Precinct (MIP) is a landmark investment by a consortium comprised of leading investors (the “LOGOS Consortium”) with a deep commitment to furthering the logistics, e-commerce and distribution landscape in Australia.
LOGOS has joined with existing partners, Ivanhoé Cambridge, AustralianSuper, and TCorp (NSW Treasury Corporation) as well as a new partner, AXA IM Alts, to deliver this milestone strategic investment. In addition to its investment alongside the consortium, LOGOS is appointed as the investment and development manager for MIP.
By acquiring MIP, the LOGOS Consortium will establish a new benchmark for logistics development in the Asia-Pacific and contribute to ongoing further innovation in the sector globally.
The LOGOS Consortium said: “This acquisition positions the LOGOS Consortium at the heart of a logistics revolution that will capture powerful economic benefits as the MLP’s intermodal terminals ramp up, increasing the efficient transfer of goods from Port Botany to customers around Australia.
Our collective vision for MIP represents a fundamental shift in east coast logistics, as a fully automated port-to-site rail link. The high levels of automation across the intermodals and warehousing will drive significant long-term cost advantages and improve supply chain predictability which will offer important labour efficiency and stock availability. The scale of a logistics site with this range of benefits, within a 30-minute drive of a major global CBD, has not been seen in Australia before.
