Port of Brisbane announces expansion, while Protected Industrial action continues by stevedoring employees.
Port of Brisbane Makes Room for Port Gate Logistics
Transport and logistics operator, PortGate Logistics, has signed a 30-year lease deal with the Port of Brisbane to relocate to a new 3-hectare site on Fisherman Islands. PortGate Logistics is a sub-tenant of Portgate Properties Pty Ltd, who currently sub-lease a number of warehouses and hardstand areas within the Port of Brisbane’s PortGate precinct.
The new development will include purpose-built facilities comprising a warehouse of approximately 6,000m2, container hardstand, office building and car parking along with further areas developed for log storage and pack/unpack facilities.
Port of Brisbane has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the owners of PortGate Logistics, which has been an anchor tenant of the PortGate Estate since 2006 and the ‘Smith Bros’ business had developed and run container parks on Fisherman Islands since the early-nineties.
PortGate Logistics has engaged Space Frame to construct the facility. Works are underway with the Office & Warehouse some 60% completed and 30% post-tension concrete also completed to the site. Construction is expected to be completed June 2019.
