Northline is primed to expand its presence in Queensland and northern Australia with the opening of its new $21 million facility south of Brisbane.

The transport and logistics firm, which is headquartered in South Australia, is now running its Queensland operations out of the Redbank site.

The premise acts as Northline’s Queensland office and provides more than 12,500 square metres of warehousing and loading and unloading facilities. 

Northline CEO Craige Whitton says it will help meet the growing demand for the company’s management, warehousing and distribution services along the east coast and into northern Australia.

"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," he 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."

Northline, which currently operates 13 branches across the country, is pumping $70 million into new infrastructure over three years to bolster its distribution network.

The company specialises in road and rail freight management services, warehousing and distribution, freight forwarding and mining, construction, oil and gas logistics.

The opening of the Redbank base coincides with the recent completion of the new Redbank Link Bridge, which gives Northline direct access to the Ipswich Motorway and puts it closer to the Logan and Centenary motorways.
