NORTHLINE EXPANDS INTO BRISBANE

Written on the 20 November 2014

NORTHLINE EXPANDS INTO BRISBANE NORTHLINE, one of Australia’s fastest growing logistics operations, has started running from its $21 million Brisbane facility.

The new facility, located within the Goodman Group’s 62 hectare Redbank Motorway Estate, will provide more than 12,500 square meters of warehousing and undercover freight operations space.

The move follows the January opening of Northline’s $24 million Sydney transport and logistics facility at Smithfield.

The company has all together invested more than $70 million in new infrastructure over a three year period.

Northline CEO Craige Whitton says both the Sydney and Brisbane facilities were developed to serve growing demand along Australia’s east coast and into the north.

“Improved efficiencies will broaden access to our supply chain partners and reduce turnaround times of freight coming into and departing the facility,” says Whitton.

“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.

“In particular, it will help strengthen our services to the mining, construction, oil and gas industries, which demand a strong presence in Queensland as a key strategic supply chain link to regional and remote areas.

“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.”

Incorporated in 1983, Northline is a privately owned and managed Australian company specialising in four major areas of service provision: 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.
