Cool chain 3PL expands in NSW

Costa Logistics has completed work on a multi-million dollar expansion of its temperature-controlled distribution centre west of Sydney in NSW.

 

The $5 million investment has added a further 4500 sqm to the Eastern Creek site, taking the overall footprint of the facility to 19500 sqm.

 

The work follows the recent addition of 3500 sqm to Costa’s Melbourne facility at Derrimut that now stretches across 17,000 sqm. The company also leased a vacant chilled site in Brisbane in March last year in order to grow its market share in Queensland.

 

“It is an important growth phase in the company’s evolution. Brisbane was important for us because it gave us true national coverage whereas the extra space in Derrimut and Eastern Creek is to cater for the businesses growth,’’ said Costa Logistics chief operating officer Geoff Norman.

 

In addition, the company has commenced planning of a second Victorian distribution centre next door to the current Derrimut site. The planned facility will add 19,000 sqm of multi-temperature controlled space to the company’s current warehousing footprint in Victoria.
