In a groundbreaking development that promises to reshape the future of logistics in Australia, Qube Logistics, a global player in the field, has successfully unveiled its innovative Super B Double Double-Stacked container vehicle at the bustling Port of Brisbane.
The highly anticipated event, graced by the presence of the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL), and the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB), marks a historic milestone for the country’s transportation industry.
Never before has a double-stacked container vehicle been trialed on Australian public roads.
The momentous trial, carried out under a temporary permit from the NHVR and temporary consent from PBPL, as the Port’s designated road manager, was meticulously planned with safety and operational efficiency at its core.
Eight empty TEU containers were securely loaded onto the innovative vehicle, which then embarked on a carefully designated route within Qube’s expansive port facilities, navigating through restricted public port roads.
Under the current permit and consent conditions, this groundbreaking double-stacked vehicle is poised to revolutionize the movement of empty containers.
It will exclusively transport these empties along a predefined route within Qube’s state-of-the-art facility and select public port roads, all while adhering to stringent safety protocols and operational standards.
PBPL’s visionary CEO, Neil Stephens, couldn’t contain his enthusiasm, remarking, “This is a fantastic outcome for Qube and all parties involved today. It’s also a clear demonstration of the collaboration and innovation being achieved by our customers and partners here at the Port that’s enhancing productivity and efficiency in their operations.”
The deployment of the Super B Double Double-Stacked vehicle heralds a transformative era in Australian logistics.
With the ability to transport containers more efficiently and economically, this innovation promises to alleviate congestion, reduce transportation costs, and contribute to a greener, more sustainable future.
Qube Logistics, known for its commitment to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of logistics, has set a high bar for innovation in the industry.
As stakeholders eagerly anticipate the full integration of these double-stacked container vehicles into the transportation network, it’s clear that Australia’s logistics landscape is on the cusp of a revolution that will benefit businesses and consumers alike.
