Sea Swift adds security hut to Darwin Depot to strengthen safety

30 June 2020

Sea Swift has further strengthened safety measures at its Darwin Depot by operating a new security hut at the access point to the facility.

The security hut has been introduced to assist with access to the depot, ensuring people are aware of any activities occurring in the depot and areas of exclusion – for example, due to large earthmoving equipment deliveries or cranes operating and unloading large items off trucks.

Sea Swift NT Operations Manager Justin Tranter said another key reason was to help direct people to the area that they are going to when picking up or dropping off goods.

“All visitors wishing to gain access to Sea Swift yard will be asked to stop at the security hut so that the appropriate assistance can be provided,” said Mr Tranter.

“During the short time the security hut has been operating, there have been a number of positive comments from people accessing the yard in having any questions answered and assistance with freight enquiries and paperwork information.

“I’d like to thank our customers for their cooperation and assistance with Sea Swift’s on-going safety and service improvements.”

In summary, a Sea Swift employee will occupy the security hut to:

  • assist visitors to get directly to their correct drop-off/pick up points
  • assist with pre-travel paperwork and enquiries
  • ensure all visitors are aware of site traffic management rules and comply with these rules
  • ensure the ongoing safety of all visitors and Sea Swift employees while on site.

Sea Swift has also established a designated speed limit on site of 10km per hour.
