Australian logistics company Northline has invested in a new purpose built $23 million transport and logistics facility in Adelaide’s north.

As part of a $98 million national investment across four states and territories, the new 10,440 square metre facility will provide 3,500 sq m of warehousing space with high bay racking and a 440 sq m wash bay and container servicing area.

"The new Adelaide facility marks a major milestone in the 33 year history of the company, which started life servicing Northern Australia from Adelaide – a route many others thought too difficult at the time," Northline CEO Craige Whitton says.

"With investments made over the last three years, Northline will boast one of the most modern networks of transport and logistics facilities across mainland Australia."

Located on Gallipoli Drive, Regency Park, the building will allow for B-doubles and sits adjacent to the Kilburn Railyards, which Northline says will allow it move containers directly to and from Pacific National’s facility.

The news has been welcomed by Pacific National, which says the investment will allow containers to be moved directly into the rail terminal, removing the need for trucks to move containers over public roads.

"This is important infrastructure for South Australia’s economy that will help create jobs and support further investment for the long term," Pacific National general manager Andrew Adam says.

Also happy is  Gibb Group MD Matt Gibb, who is overseeing the development of the facility in Adelaide – its third for Northline after Darwin and Townsville.

"We pride ourselves on being a customer orientated developer focused on forming long-term relationships with our clients and believe this third facility is testament to our holistic approach in delivering quality solutions on a personable level," Gibb says.

Due to open in early 2017, the new Adelaide location follows new facilities in Sydney, Brisbane, Darwin, and Townsville in the past three years.

The company will also open a new facility in Mackay, Queensland this month.
