TNT Express will build a new $85 million regional headquarters and distribution centre about 30 minutes south-west of Brisbane.

Construction on the new facility at Redbank is due to begin this month and is expected to be finished in June 2015.  

The new site will replace TNT’s existing Salisbury facility and will feature state-of-the-art parcel sorting technology capable of processing 15,000 parcels per hour, up from the Salisbury facility’s capacity of 3,000 per hour.  

TNT Queensland regional director Peter Gutsche says the new centre is aimed at meeting the growing needs of its south-east Queensland customers with distribution requirements throughout Australia and across the world.  

"The new TNT Express Redbank logistics hub will be a major facility in this important and growing area of Queensland," he says.

"It will contain some of the most technologically advanced and innovative parcel sorting technology available to improve the operational efficiency and security of our customers’ shipments."  

The 78,000 square-metre site includes 26,000sqm of warehouse space to allow for future growth, which a significant increase on the current Salisbury depot’s 15,000sqm of warehousing on 62,000sqm of land.

TNT says the building will also reduce the company’s CO2 emissions by 20 per cent and generate more than 300 full-time jobs.

"The new depot is part of TNT Express’ broader investment in its operations around Australia, including the creation of new ‘super hubs’ in Sydney and Melbourne, also due for completion during 2015 and complementing those in other locations which have been upgraded in recent years," Gutsche says.
