Fleet-owning freight forwarder Wallace International is the latest transport and logistics player to secure a new base of the Port of Brisbane.

The newest tenant of the Port West Industrial Estate at Lytton relocates after signing a 10-year lease for a 2.22-hectate site.

Built to Wallace International’s specific requirements, the facility will comprise an 8,982-square-metre warehouse, 1,000 sq m office space, 73 car parking bays, sunken docks and a dock office.

The development will also work towards achieving a 4-star, Green Star equivalent design – standard for all new port property developments – and will include sustainable design elements including LED lighting, irrigated landscaping, water tanks and a 100kW solar system.

Construction and fit-out is expected to commence mid-2021 and is anticipated to complete by end-2021.

"We have outgrown our facilities at Morningside and the proximity of Port West being close to the Port enables us to continue growth while enabling us to provide economical personalised service to our clients," Wallace International managing director Bob Wallace says.

Port West continues to grow, with Wallace International joining six other global and national port-related businesses including Bunnings and Fisher & Paykel, with a new facility for Team Transport currently under construction.

"Located only 6km from the Port’s terminals and wharves, Port West is highly sought after industrial land and our teams have worked collaboratively to design a facility that will serve Wallace International’s operations now while positioning them strongly for the future," Port of Brisbane CEO Roy Cummins says.

"This speaks to our strong track record of working with customers to design and deliver bespoke solutions on large greenfield sites – a unique advantage for businesses looking to be closer to the action.

"Like Wallace International, Port of Brisbane offers its customers an end-to-end service, with a streamlined, in-house development application and approvals process, project design and delivery and, of course, on-going professional property management services."
