Northline expands Perth depot

NATIONAL long-haul logistics operator, Northline, has completed the expansion of its state-of-the-art warehousing and freight distribution centre in Hazelmere. The Hazelmere operation is the latest stage in a $60 million expansion program of Northline’s Australian distribution centres. Located north of Perth Airport, the $9 million, 23,000 square metre warehouse space has expanded capacity to hold as many as 100 sea containers. The purpose-built facility offers drive-through awning and undercover loading docks and dock levellers. Northline WA general manager Gerry Carrucan said there had been a strong increase in freight levels during the past three years, both from the east coast and to the north west. “Our new distribution centre gives us an extra 8,000sq m of capacity and the flexibility to provide a staging area for oil and gas and general mining companies. From Perth, we can pick and pack it and ship it to them by road,” he said. Northline has 10 depots around the country servicing clients including BP Castrol, ConocoPhilips, Fujitsu General (AUST), Avon Products, and Harley Davidson Australia. The company has already completed depot developments in Melbourne and Townsville, with a new facility in Sydney soon to be completed. Mr Carracun said the new Perth facility would help meet demand for third party logistics warehousing by offering a full-service store-and-forward resource. Sally Malay House open for business MID-CAP nickel explorer Sally Malay Mining Ltd has snared the naming rights to the former ABN Amro Morgans building at 553 Hay St, resulting in its name change to Sally Malay House. The company moved to the 800 square metre ninth floor of the 13-storey building late last year, after it outgrew its office at Allendale Square. Sally Malay managing director Peter Harold said the company was very happy with its new office on the corner of Pier and Hay Streets, and the new name and signage would help make it easier for clients to find. The company has plenty of room to expand following a recent refurbishment, he said.
