Construction has started on our second depot located conveniently across the road from our current site. Due to growing customer demands, expansion to a second location was the natural progression to accommodate our valued customers needs.
Scraping works have commenced and pipework has been delivered for the drainage of the site.
This additional new facility will incorporate a warehouse and storage, office space and hardstand for truck and trailer parking. This new facility now gives us an additional 10,228 m2 to work with. We will also have our own on site fuel tank to fill up our trucks closer to home, saving valuable time sitting at the service stations around town.
Once again it is another exciting time for Arrow with our every growing fleet of Mercedes Benz Actors Trucks, Super B Double and A Double trailers, combination rigid truck all being operational and now a new facility.
Stay tuned for updates as the work progresses.
ARROW NOW RUNNING QUAD QUAD SUPER B’S
The next exciting chapter at Arrow begins with the arrival of 2 new Mercedes 550 HP prime-movers and 2 set of Vawdrey Quad Quad super B’s. (4 axles on both trailers)
In a first from the west, Arrow will be running containers into the port of Melbourne up to a gross weight of 77.5 tonne. Close to 10 tonne greater than previous limitations.
As a start these combinations will run wharf to yard and yard to wharf 24/6.
Further opportunities to run direct from customer sites into Port have been identified with work to commence on bridge assessments and engineering in the coming weeks, which may include rural destinations with the opening of the Arrow Rural Tailgate Facility.
