Nurioopta Traders is set to dramatically improve the logistical efficiency of the Barossa Valley region, as construction on an $80 million transport depot, storage and distribution facility has commenced.

The company was founded in 1976 by Barossa locals and has continued to operate in the region for almost 50 years.

The facility will span over 130,000 square metres and will include 50,000 square metres of undercover warehousing, 50,000 square metres of concrete hardstand for truck parking, a 700 square metre office space and a 2000 square metre workshop equipped with an automatic truck wash and four maintenance bays.

Its location will have direct road train and b-triple access to the major freight route, and Nurioopta Traders Director Jamie Cooper says the new facility will help handle the needs of the Barossa Valley’s growing wine industry.

“Once completed, this new facility will greatly improve the operations for our wine production customers by streamlining storage through to direct transportation to major interstate distribution centres,” Cooper says.

Construction of the warehouse is being driven by Jaytex Construction, while other businesses including Hunter Bros Earthmoving, Milton Transport, and Adbri Quarries have also been engaged.

A strong emphasis has also been placed on procurement from leading local suppliers in order for Nurioopta Traders to continue to support the region that supports it.

The project is expected to be completed in March 2025 with future scope for a second stage should customer demand require additional large-scale warehousing.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on June 27 for the new facility.
