Toll to open new ‘super depot’ on the Gold Coast
The 10,250sqm multi-purpose freight facility in Arundel will bring together three existing sites in Molendinar, Arundel and Burleigh Heads into one operational hub.
It will be the first facility of its kind for the group, bringing together multiple freight services under one roof that are traditionally separated due to their operational requirements.
“The outcome will be a seamless freight offering to customers,” Toll said in a statement.
“From medical supplies, to fashion, food and machinery, it can all be delivered from the Gold Coast to Australia and the world, using best practice supply chain management.”
Toll group managing director Michael Byrne said the site at Arundel on the Gold Coast had been chosen to provide the optimal location to minimise distance and time travelled between the depot and customers.
“We have a strong vision for Queensland and Toll is making a substantial investment on the Gold Coast with this new state of the art facility,” he said during the groundbreaking ceremony.
Toll will be employing over 120 Gold Coast locals at the new facility.
The three existing sites at Molendinar, Arundel and Burleigh Heads will stagger their relocation through July 2019 to ensure a smooth transition for customers.
