Mainfreight launches our new Epping site
At Mainfreight we remain focussed on building a stronger and bigger business by investing in our network and infrastructure. We are very proud of our new Epping facility; our largest ever investment in buildings. Everything about the site is generating a positive buzz.
Operational since the start of this year, last night (October 11th, 2016), we had the official opening of our newest Australian branch. Board of Directors, Global Managers and Team were all in attendance to mark the occasion.
The combination of warehousing and transport at the one site maximises supply chain efficiencies for our customers. The facility also houses our national training centre and the national leadership team. Our national leadership team across all of our brands are now sitting together ensuring clear communication and quick, decisive actions across the supply chain.
Epping rounds out the restructuring of our facilities in Australia’s capital cities both in our domestic and international businesses. We have now completed over a dozen significant building projects over the last three years that sets us up nicely to provide high quality supply chain services.
New site delivering benefits to both sides of Melbourne
Our new Epping facility positions Melbourne as our first location to have two stand-alone freight operations on either side of the same city. The dual locations operating from Clayton (South Eastern suburbs) and Epping (Northern suburbs) provides greater flexibility during the pick-up and delivery process. Our drivers are covering less distance improving overall timeliness and efficiency.
We welcome visitors to any of our sites to learn more about the value we can provide your business and your customers. Please contact our Mainfreight team members to set up a time.
