Famous Pacific Shipping (FPS) Queensland has moved into the first of 10 large warehouses planned as part of a $100 million investment initiative at the Port Gate Estate at Brisbane.

The move into a new one-stop-shop for importers and exporters using the Port of Brisbane allows the company to extend its portfolio of services to shippers, according to FPS Queensland Managing Director Michele Dougal.

FPS has become the first NVOCC and freight forwarder to move to the new Port Gate Estate, on which development first started in 2006.

"The Port Gate Estate incorporates office space and a container park and operates as a one-stop shop for freight forwarding, customs broking and import and export businesses, all on the one complex," Dougal says.

FPS had quickly outgrown its existing purpose-built facility where it moved in 2005, hence the move to the new complex at which the company has access to all latest warehousing facilities, over 500 squqare metres of new office space and full customs support, including bonded warehousing, a container and vehicle washing facility, as well as an empty container facility.

"This state-of-the-art facility is creating further opportunities for FPS Queensland to continue to expand our air and seafreight activities," Dougal says.

In Australia, Famous Pacific Shipping has freight hubs in Brisbane, Fremantle, Melbourne and Sydney.

The company’s service portfolio includes door-to-door sea and airfreight services, local transportation and distribution, Customs clearance, warehousing, project management and logistics.
