Toll has launched its new $17 million logistics facility that is located in one of Australia’s fastest growing urban areas.
The 1.8ha site on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast has now been completed and ready for operation, positioned on the largest lot in the Chevallum Industrial Park.
The launch follows a $33 million investment in a new flagship logistics hub on the Gold Coast in September last year.
Toll’s Sunshine Coast facility includes 5,000sqm of warehouse space and a 532sqm two-storey office.
The property is tenanted by Toll Group under a 12-year pre-lease arrangement and has been completed by Gibb Group, in collaboration with repeat partner Lanskey Constructions.
The facility marks Gibb Group’s second development for Toll, having previously secured the development and pre-lease of Toll’s 3-hectare Gracemere Industry Park facility, sold to Charter Hall in 2013.
Angus Holloway, Gibb Group’s Senior Development Manager said this facility has enabled Toll to streamline local business operations, by consolidating existing facilities into a location with close proximity to major arterial routes accessing South East Queensland.
Alan Beacham, Toll Group Acting President, Global Express, said the groups is continuing to look for opportunities to improve the speed and quality of its services.
“The development of our new Toll Sunshine Coast purpose-built facility integrates our existing services into a modern logistics hub to meet the needs of our customers now and into the future,” he said.
“We’re proud of what the team have been able to achieve in bringing our people and services together to support the Sunshine Coast community.”
Over 40 per cent of contractors were commissioned from the local regions of the Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay and Gympie.
