- Designed to allow further expansion if required in future
Completed for Australian Pacific Airports (Melbourne) at the Melbourne Airport Business Park in Tullamarine, this freight transport facility for TNT, one of the world’s largest express delivery companies, will be the largest transport and logistics ‘super hub’ in TNT’s global network.
The facility, which is located adjacent to Melbourne Airport and within easy reach of major freight routes to the ports and other key destinations, allows TNT to combine all its Victorian head office and other Melbourne operations on to one site. It will be pivotal in allowing them to meet increased demand and the high level of service its customers expect in an ever-changing and competitive market.
Completed in July 2015, the 38,000m² state of the art facility is big enough to house more than five soccer pitches. It incorporates a state of the art automated parcel sortation system which can process up to 18,500 parcels an hour, increasing the company’s capacity by some 60%. The building has also been designed to allow expansion on two sides, providing even greater flexibility for the future.
The building’s efficient design and new technology have improved operational efficiencies, created a safer working environment, provided capacity for TNT to capitalise on opportunities in growth sectors like e-commerce, and has also significantly reduced their carbon footprint. The building has been delivered and is on track to open for business in September 2015, ready for the Christmas shopping rush.
