Bass strait ready for growth: Toll

  • Posted on Friday 8th, February 2019.

Transport and logistics company, Toll, has confirmed that a constraint for operational growth has been removed, following investments in two new 700 TEU ships.

“We've worked through a significant program to prepare our wharf infrastructure for the arrival of Tasmanian Achiever II and Victorian Reliance II, meanwhile, keeping our service going,” Toll said in a statement.

“With reduced capacity we operated around construction zones, berthing at alternative locations and sailing during the day to keep cargo moving in the Bass Strait.

“The alternative berth period was finished ahead of plan and we're now back to full capacity until our new ships arrive and enter service in the first week of March 2019, providing a significant increase in capacity and reliability in the Bass Strait trade.”

Toll confirmed the vessel order October last year.
