CouriersPlease opens two new depots

Parcel delivery service CouriersPlease has opened two new relocated logistics facilities in major Australian cities, investment in its infrastructure ahead of a forecast growth in parcel deliveries in tandem with the growth in e-commerce.
The two new Perth and Melbourne locations will be key logistics facilities as the company expands its reach in Australia and overseas, as CouriersPlease explained in a media statement.
Located in the new $440 million logistics hub Drystone Industrial Estate, CouriersPlease’s relocated state-of-the-art logistics facility in Truganina, Victoria, replaces the company’s Port Melbourne, Victoria, depot. Along with CouriersPlease’s existing Mulgrave facility, it will provide the business with east-to-west coverage of Melbourne. The site is 29,000m2 in total, with 12,500m2 under the roof, and will accommodate over 160 courier vehicles. Additional bay spaces have also been allocated to accommodate future growth.
Drystone Industrial Estate is home to other distribution centres for major Australian companies, including Kmart, The Reject Shop and Rand.
The second recently opened logistics facility is located in Welshpool, an inner south-eastern suburb of Perth. The new 4,043m2 site will be the delivery hub for Perth and Western Australia. It comprises a 3,443m2 warehouse, with a 600m2 office space, and room to expand a further 2,000m2 in the future.
The logistics facility will provide improves access to the CBD and the north and south of the city and is close to main arterial routes such as Orrong Road, Welshpool Road, Leach Highway and Tonkin Highway.
In September last year, CouriersPlease opened a relocated Brisbane depot in Salisbury, and a new Adelaide depot is set to open in Marleston later this year.
“CouriersPlease has relocated our logistics facilities in major capital cities in order to accommodate the significant growth in the volume of parcels moving throughout our network,” Mark McGinley, CEO, CouriersPlease. “Our commitment in moving to the west of Melbourne has stemmed from it being a massive growth corridor with some of the highest rates of online shopping in the country. Our new Welshpool depot gives us greater coverage of the city and a larger warehouse space for logistics operations, allowing us to bring a better service to our customers. With room for future expansion, we hope to bring more jobs and opportunities to the local community.”
