The new container park at the Port of Brisbane will allow DP World to take its east coast operations to the next level
Global smart logistics company DP World has broken ground on its new Brisbane Container Park at the Port of Brisbane on Fisherman Islands.
The new venture, alongside partners from the Port of Brisbane, logistics real estate specialist LOGOS and local construction firm McNab, is part of DP World’s ongoing efforts to expand its logistics capabilities in Australia.
The Brisbane Container Park extends DP World’s depot service offerings in Sydney and Melbourne, with the 10.4 hectare container park providing cargo owners and liners on Australia’s east coast a one-stop-shop solution for storing and handling full and empty containers.
It’ll also include cutting edge logistics technology like Australia’s first two high empty reefer pre-trip facilities as well as MT Handlers capable of stacking up to eight containers.
“DP World has long recognised the importance of the Port of Brisbane in driving economic growth in Queensland and Australia,” DP World Oceania executive vice president Nicolaj Noes says.
“The Brisbane Container Park is a major milestone in our progress as an end-to-end supply chain solutions provider, expanding our footprint in the city and exemplifying our commitment to the development of Brisbane and Queensland through trade.
“With this new facility, DP World will provide customers access to a holistic suite of supply chain services that can be tailored to their specific needs as they navigate a dynamic trade landscape and look to grow within Australia and beyond.”
The strategic location in Queensland is set to pave the way for a $100 billion export economy, with the state’s government outlining ambitions for growth in recent trade strategies.
As a growing Australian container port, the Port of Brisbane will play host to the new container park at the mouth of the Brisbane River.
“LOGOS is proud to be partnering with DP World to deliver their 10.4 ha Brisbane Container Park facility,” LOGOS general manager of development Queensland Justin Sherlock says.
“We have a strong track record in delivering container parks, warehousing and distribution facilities across the region and at the Port of Brisbane.”
