CEVA makes major investment in Australia and New Zealand
CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain companies, has announced construction of a new 166,000 square metre super site west of Melbourne in Australia which will be the centrepiece of CEVA’s growth plans in Australia and New Zealand.
Casey Fisher, Managing Director of CEVA in Australia and New Zealand, said: “This announcement showcases our intention to keep making substantial investments in property assets in Australia and New Zealand. Our new Truganina ‘super site’ builds on a range of other property developments we have underway in both countries, which will help us grow and keep meeting the growing needs of CEVA customers across diverse business sectors”
CEVA’s new, multi user facility in the rapidly growing and strategic Truganina area will include four warehouses with a combined footprint of over 72,000 square metre hardstand areas of some 76,500 square metres (comprising a 17,500 square metres loading and staging area for car carrying operations and a 59,000 square metre external storage and manoeuvring area), an awning area of 15,600 square metres and a combined office workspace area of 2,000 square metres, with surrounding land.
As the largest CEVA facility in Australia, it is ideally located to support industrial, automotive and consumer and retail customers through its excellent access to Melbourne’s road and rail network, the Port of Melbourne and Melbourne International Airport.
“I am very excited about this investment which will further boost our growth plans in Australia and New Zealand, and the competitive, multimodal advantage this will enable us to offer our customers.” Fisher said. “As well as Truganina, we are adding to our extensive existing network of sites with a new and almost-complete 30,000 sq m car carrying and international freight management site at Pinkenba in Queensland, a 5,500 sq m extension to our Auckland facility in New Zealand, a new 34,000 sq m Contract Logistics and international freight multi user facility at Hazelmere in Western Australia and plans are at an advanced stage to build a bespoke car carrying facility, also in Western Australia.”
All CEVA’s new and extended facilities in Australia and New Zealand will incorporate state of the art technology and process initiatives, including continuous loading docks and dock levellers, hail netting (at car carrying facilities), environmental design, integrated IT solutions, advanced racking, traffic management and material handling equipment, and flexible, modern workspaces for employees.
