New facility located in Truganina’s Drystone industrial hub

 

CouriersPlease (CP) has officially opened a new logistics facility in Melbourne.

The new facility is located within the $440 million in Drystone Industrial Estate hub in Truganina.

The 29,000sqm site includes 12,500sqm under the roof, with a capacity to accommodate over 160 courier vehicles.

Additional courier bays are allocated to accommodate future growth.

Wyndham City deputy mayor Kim McAliney joined CP CEO Mark McGinley to open the new depot.

The company believes the new facility will bring opportunities for small business development for CP franchisees looking to take on exclusive delivery territories in the region.

"The growth in e-commerce is fuelling an increase in parcel delivery, and we are investing in infrastructure to accommodate for the future growth of parcel volumes," CouriersPlease CEO Mark McGinley says.

"With more Australians purchasing online, we are positioning ourselves at the forefront of online retail parcel delivery.

"The establishment of our new facility reflects an important step for CP.

"Drystone Industrial Estate is a key logistics hub in one of Australia’s most significant logistics and supply chain precincts – close to major roads, with easy access to rail and air freight services.

"The west of Melbourne is a booming growth corridor, and has some of the highest rates of online shopping in the country.

"With our existing Mulgrave facility, CP now has complete east to west coverage over Melbourne."

With an aim to tap into the booming e-commerce sector and expand its reach in local and international markets, the parcel delivery firm has relocated three logistics facilities this year.

In September, CP opened the relocated Perth depot in Welshpool, and last year opened the relocated Brisbane depot in Salisbury.

A new Adelaide depot is set to open in Marleston later this year.
