Mainfreight Branch Developments | Australia | July 2015
Building intensity in our network is an integral part of our on-going 100 year planning philosophy. However it’s not just new branches we have opened – we are also building and expanding branches in our current locations.
These critical infrastructure improvements ensure we have the right platform to deliver quality services and expand on our service capabilities
Bunbury, Western Australia
We have recently opened a satellite depot, in the South West of Western Australia, one of Australia’s fastest growing regions. Our line haul units move freight into the new depot daily and our Bunbury owner drivers are picking up and delivering freight throughout the region, including:
- Margaret River
Owens Transport, our dedicated in-house wharf cartage division/brand moved into their purpose built facility in July, 2015. Located right in the Port of Brisbane it includes:
- 1500m2 depot
- 10,000m2 hardstand
- Capacity for 560 TEU and 35 reefer points
Our new freight development consists of two separate buildings connected by a breezeway which combines our transport and logistics services in one supersite on 11 hectares of land. Located in Epping in Melbourne’s northern suburbs puts right on the Hume Highway (the main arterial road between Sydney and Melbourne) and other key motorways.
Perth, Western Australia
Logistics & Air and Ocean
Our team has moved into their new facility located at the airport to ensure efficient access for urgent air freight. Combined with our Logistics team, the new facility coasts 10,000m2 of warehousing space, 1300m2 of hardstand and 10 dock levellers
