NORTHLINE, one of Australia's largest privately-owned logistics operations, has officially begun operation from a new $21 million facility at Redbank Brisbane.
The new facility, located within the Goodman Group's 62 hectare Redbank Motorway Estate, is expected to significantly strengthen the company's presence along the east coast of Australia.
The facility is set to provide more than 12,500 square metres of warehousing and undercover freight operations space including an all-weather loading and unloading breezeway and the company's Queensland state office.
This development follows January's opening of Northline's new $24 million Sydney transport and logistics facility at Smithfield.
Northline Chief Executive Officer Craig Whitton said the new facility will help meet the growing demand for freight management, warehousing and distribution services along the east coast and into northern Australia.
"Improved efficiencies will broaden access to our supply chain partners and reduce turnaround times of freight coming into and departing the facility," Mr Whitton said.
"These efficiencies have been significantly enhanced by the recent opening of the new Redbank Link Bridge, which gives us direct access to the Ipswich Motorway, as well as being in close proximity to the Logan and Centenary Motorways."
Mr Whitton stated he had hoped to strengthen the companies services in the mining, construction, oil and gas industries.
"Queensland is a key market for the company and this investment reflects our commitment to the state and allows us to further improve our service offering," he said.
Over the past three years Northline's national distribution network is rapidly expanded due to recent investments in infrastructure totalling over $70 million.
Incorporated in 1983, Northline is a privately owned and managed Australian company specialising in road and rail freight management services; warehousing and distribution; global freight forwarding and mining, construction, oil & gas logistics.
With 13 branches across the nation, the company's extensive operation spans all mainland capitals and many key regional centres.
