As AHG was preparing to announce a new man at the helm, one of its newer senior executives was gearing up for the official opening a purpose-built facility at Bundaberg in partnership with packaging firm Arora.

Orora managing director and CEO Nigel Garrard had AHG CEO of Logistics Stephen Cleary at his side for the event attended by V8 Supercar champion Scott McLaughlin customers and local dignitaries.

The new 4,200 square metre corrugated packaging, cold storage and transport facility will support Orora’s fruit and produce corrugated customer base in Bundaberg, the company says.

The additional refrigerated transport resources provided by AHG subsidiary JAT means Orora can provide an end-to-end packaging solution for its customers, bringing their produce from farm to market in pristine condition.

"We see this investment, in Queensland’s horticultural rich heartland, as a key strategic asset for Orora that provides our customers with an integrated supply chain solution for their produce," Garrard says.

"In addition, the new facility will provide significant job opportunities particularly during peak season.

"Bundaberg is a diverse and growing region, the food bowl for northern Australia.

"The new facility, along with Orora and AHG’s strategic partnership, will enhance the ability to tailor solutions for growers that have specific supply chain requirements."
