Linfox has offered a glimpse into a new multi-user distribution centre to be developed following the purchase of land in Willawong, Brisbane, which forms part of its "continued investment in the Sunshine State".

In its most recent communique, the logistics giant outlines its business progress since acquiring Aurizon’s Queensland Intermodal Business.

Located in Queensland’s south-east growth corridor, the acquired nine-hectare site is set near major highways and the Acacia Ridge Intermodal Terminal.

"Customers will benefit from 50 per cent more warehousing space, their own offices, high-security warehousing capabilities, and five different temperature-controlled zones to manage a range of goods from personal health products to medicines, food and beverages," executive chairman Peter Fox notes.

"Sustainable design has been front of mind, with solar-power generation, smart LED lighting and water-capture facilities earning the design a five-star Green Star rating.

"We look forward to introducing our Queensland customers to the facility when it is completed."

Linfox also notes fully-owned subsidiary BevChain has secured a partnership with Carlton & United Breweries (CUB) to provide warehousing and metropolitan transport to its customer network in Brisbane.

"The partnership complements BevChain’s existing CUB network in New South Wales and Victoria and expands the BevChain family in Australia and New Zealand to more than 800 people," Fox says.

"Since Linfox’s full acquisition of BevChain in 2017, the business has become the solution of choice for the beverage industry, today becoming an integral partner of the top two brewers and two largest liquor retailers in Australia.

"This expansion of our Brisbane network, along with the opening of our new Intermodal offering in north Queensland, broadens the possibilities for customers to extend their reach in north Queensland and beyond."

Further south, Linfox announces it recently expanded its partnership with Woolworths in Victoria, including its temperature-controlled deliveries of chilled and frozen products, as well as meats, poultry and fresh to more than 160 Woolworths stores across Victoria.
