Team Transport & Logistics cuts ribbon at Brisbane Port’s new facility as TNS signs up


TNS Logistics has signed a 10-year lease agreement for a 1.56 hectare site at Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL’s) new facility.

The Port West Estate also recently welcomed its latest tenant, Team Transport & Logistics (TTL), with a 10-year lease deal for a 1.22 hectare site in the industrial estate at Lytton.

The TNS Logistics facility will comprise a 2,000 sqm warehouse plus corporate office; a wash bay and 7,617sqm dedicated hardstand; truck and trailer storage and onsite staff car parking. 

It will also utilise an existing 1,075sqm warehouse to meet TNS Logistics’ specific requirements.

In line with PBPL’s sustainable design standards, the development will be designed to 5 star Green Star equivalent, which will include a 100kW rooftop solar system, rainwater harvesting tanks, irrigated landscaping, and LED lighting amongst other ESD initiatives.

Construction is expected to commence by mid-2021 and be complete before Christmas.

PBPL CEO Roy Cummins says the new location would provide TNS Logistics with a competitive edge.

“For those looking to be close to action, it doesn’t get much closer than our Port Gate Estate. We know that operators achieve significant logistics and cost benefits by relocating closer to the Port’s terminals and wharves,” Cummins says.

“We’re delighted to be able to support TNS Logistics’ capabilities now, while working closely with them to design and deliver a purpose built facility that will support their future growth plans.”

TNS Logistics director Sharon Norton says the new facility will support TNS Logistics’ growth witnessed in the last two years.

“The new Port Gate precinct will allow TNS to continue our growth by servicing our current customer’s and supporting their future growth at our new premises,” Norton says.

“The new facility will also double our current warehousing space and will support our current rapid growth within our new e-commerce division.   

“The TNS team are all very excited and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at the Port for their support.” 

The agreement was negotiated by Shaw Harrison from Savills, with the facility to be designed by SPARC Architects.

“We are pleased to have been able to support TNS throughout the past four or so years as we have assisted them relocate a couple of times as their business has grown dramatically over the years,” Savills Australia director Shaw Harrison says.

“We are excited to see their business grow and grateful of the opportunity to pre-commit the tailored site for their future with the Port.

“Their growth is no fluke and is testament to a lovely family providing great service to their customers.

“The Port of Brisbane have provided them with an outstanding solution that is going to be a first class facility, allowing their projected future growth.”
