GEODIS Warehouse Construction at Brisbane Airport’s Export Park Begins

GEODIS, a global leading transport and logistics services provider, is now establishing a new purpose-built warehouse at Brisbane Airport’s Export Park, a move that will generate more than 60 jobs during the construction phase. 

To be situated on Westringia Road, the 4,500sqm warehouse will feature a 600sqm office space spread across two levels plus 4,000 pallet locations, 1,500sqm of bulk space, and perishable goods cool room for their marine and hospitality logistics customers.  

BAC Executive General Manager Commercial, Martin Ryan, said that the company is pleased to have BNE chosen by GEODIS as the site for its new warehouse. BNE, he said, continues to “attract great commercial and industrial businesses” with its size, accessibility, and amenity. 

“The BNE Property Team is gearing up for a busy year and we are building to match the extraordinary demand for industrial properties in South East Queensland.

“There will be a lot of growth across the BNE precinct this year with our speculative development warehouse and distribution facility well underway, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.”

For his part, Sub-Regional Managing Director, Pacific at GEODIS Australia, Stuart Asplet, said that once delivered, the new facility will allow GEODIS to showcase the company’s import and export services expertise providing end-to-end solutions including customs brokerage, regulatory compliance, and complete supply chain transparency. 

“GEODIS in Brisbane already has a strong package of solutions for our customers. This new, strategically positioned facility will not only enable us to meet the fast-changing needs of our customers today but will give us ample room to grow our offerings in the market.”

GEODIS has a presence in nearly 170 countries, employing more than 41,000 employees across the globe. In Australia, GEODIS’ warehousing space has grown to 30,985sqm across seven locations.

The project is slated to be completed in mid-2022.
