Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2013
43 FUTURE FREIGHT NETWORKS 2013 COMPANY PROFILE X COMPANY PROFILE From its simple beginnings in containerised furniture removal in the 1990s, SCF has grown to become a leading Australian supplier of specialised and standard shipping containers supporting the large domestic rail freight transport sector, construction, infrastructure and resource sectors. SCF’s focus is on providing the most innovative ways to use containers, and to improve our clients’ business efficiency, and that often means coming up with a customised solution that suits a specific need. SCF CEO, Richard Sykes, said the business landscape is changing rapidly, but the most important constants are still quality and service. SCF Group’s in-house engineers have recently developed a world-first 40-foot Polymer side door. The side door is the newest innovation in side access container equipment, and is designed to increase the speed of loading and cargo security in comparison to an equivalent curtain-side container. A fully intermodal Pneumatic tank container was also developed in 2013 in response to our customers’ needs. Unique to Australian conditions, the tank is compliant with industry standards and has been extensively field-tested to dramatically reduce long-term maintenance costs and risks associated with powdered goods transportation. The Group operates a depot network Australia-wide. These depots assist the business in being able to manage its fleet network, while also providing invaluable customer sales and service support.
