The new facility is located within the Altona Industrial Estate.

 

Transport and logistics firm Freight Assist Australia has signed a five-year lease with Stockland for a new warehouse facility in Melbourne’s inner west.

The 5,221 square metre facility is located within the Altona Industrial Estate and is twice the size of Freight Assist’s previous warehouse.

Freight Assist Australia national business manager Brendan Tate says the new facility will provide scope for future expansion as the firm continues to grow in the Australian market.

"Freight Assist Australia is now entering its fifth year of operation and we are well on our way to becoming a significant player in the national express freight industry," Tate says.

"We plan to continue our growth trajectory, while ensuring the fundamental values of our company are upheld.

"We have evolved from a small start-up company in 2012 to a multimillion-dollar business in a very short time, which has been made possible by our loyal customers and staff and for that we are thankful."

Stockland GM logistics and business parks Tony D’Addona says the demand for quality warehousing and distribution premises is increasing across Melbourne and Sydney.

"Altona’s enviable position in Melbourne’s inner west and direct access to transport hubs provides a great opportunity for Freight Assist to further grow its business.

"Our portfolio of prime assets, together with our strong asset management capabilities, backed by a firm commitment to our customers means we are well placed to deliver flexible and functional property solutions now and into the future."
