Intermodal Terminal Company

About Us

Intermodal Terminal Company (ITC) is Australia's only privately-funded independent owner and operator of intermodal terminals.

We are focused on acquiring, developing and actively operating a portfolio which has world-class levels of safety and efficiency and that is open-access so the whole supply-chain can benefit from Australia's rail freight network.

Our Approach

Intermodal terminals are located at industral sites and enable the transfer and storage of freight between rail and road, and provide connectivity to ports, regional networks and other capital cities and locations.

ITC is a platform company, wholly owned by Aware Super, one of Australia's leading superannuation funds. ITC aims to build a national portfolio of terminals with its first being the $400 million development of the Somerton Intermodal Terminal (SIT) in Melbourne.

SIT is a multi-purpose terminal and will be the largest intermodal terminal ever built in Australia. It is the most feasible endpoint for Inland Rail in Melbourne and the northern part of the Federal and State Government's Port Rail Shuttle Network. SIT will have have 1 million TEUs of capacity in Phase 1 and with Phase 2 up to 2 million TEUs, sufficient to be the potential sole Melbourne Terminal for Inland Rail until 2040.
