ONE of Australia's largest privately-owned logistics operations, Northline, has invested in a new $24 million Sydney transport and logistics facility in Smithfield.
The 32,000-square-metre facility has been custom built to meet the growing needs of the company, as well as providing easy access to major transport links.
It provides more than 16,500 square metres of warehousing and freight operations space, including a 2000-square-metre all-weather loading and unloading breezeway.
Northline's chief executive Craige Whitton said the new Smithfield facility had been designed to meet the growing demands of its customers.
"The improved efficiencies of the site will be of significant benefit to our customers who rely on Northline's ability to move freight quickly and efficiently through our facilities," he said.
"Northline has built its business on flexibility and the provision of freight solutions to a broad range of customers across Australia and a number who do business in markets considered way too hard for many logistics operators.
"Northline is all about connectivity — connecting our customers with their customers seamlessly."
The new Sydney Distribution Facility is situated at 15 Long Street, Smithfield.
