Construction is underway on Northline’s new $21 million transport and logistics facility at Redbank in Brisbane’s south.

The investment, aimed at improving efficiencies and to provide better access to major transport links, will replace Northline’s current facility at Pinkenba.

It follows a $24 million investment in a new custom built Sydney facility at Smithfield that became fully operational in January.

Expected to open in mid-September, the new premises is within the Goodman Group’s $350 million Redbank Motorway Estate, a new 62 hectare industrial site with direct access to the Ipswich Motorway via the new Redbank Link Bridge.

It will provide more than 12,500 sq m of warehousing and undercover freight operations space including an all-weather loading and unloading breezeway and the company’s Queensland state office.

"The improved efficiencies of the site will broaden access to our supply chain partners and reduce turnaround times of freight coming into and departing the facility," Northline CEO Craige Whitton says.

"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 in the region."
