TNT Express has announced it will construct a new regional headquarters and distribution centre at Redbank in the Ipswich Council area.

The $85m investment is expected to bring more than 300 full-time jobs once complete and TNT Express looks forward to actively recruiting employees from the local area.

Construction of the new facility is planned to begin in July 2014 with completion expected to be in June 2015.

The new depot’s state-of-the-art parcel sorting technology will process 15,000 parcels per hour, up from the current Salisbury facility’s capacity of 3,000 per hour, while achieving a 20 per cent improvement in CO2 emissions.  

The 78,000m2 site includes 26,000m2 of warehouse space to allow for future growth – a significant increase on the current Salisbury depot’s 15,000m2 of warehousing on 62,000m2 of land.

TNT Express Queensland Regional Director Peter Gutsche said the new centre was a significant investment in the region aimed at meeting the growing needs of its south-east Queensland customers with distribution requirements throughout Australia and across the world.

“The new TNT Express Redbank logistics hub will be a major facility in this important and growing area of Queensland,” Mr Gutsche said.

“It will contain some of the most technologically advanced and innovative parcel sorting technology available to improve the operational efficiency and security of our customers’ shipments.

“TNT Express is delighted to be working with the Ipswich Council and local suppliers in making this investment in jobs and the future of transport and logistics in this vital supply chain corridor.

“The new depot is part of TNT Express’ broader investment in its operations around Australia, including the creation of new ‘super hubs’ in Sydney and Melbourne, also due for completion during 2015 and complementing those in other locations which have been upgraded in recent years,” Mr Gutsche said.
