The commitments support IPS Logistics’ strong growth within Queensland as they look to position themselves to capture the growing demand for full container storage and hubbing at the Port. IPS has seen a continued requirement for the timely movement of inbound and outbound containerised transport operators at the Port and their new hardstand container hubbing park and purpose built warehouse storage and packing facilities enables the company, and its supply chain transport partners, to move container traffic safely and efficiently through its operations.

Darren Searle, LOGOS’ Head of Australia and New Zealand, said: “With operations across Asia Pacific, LOGOS actively works to support our customers growth strategies both within existing locations and across new geographies.

“We’re very pleased to be able to continue to support IPS Logistics as they grow their service offering at the Port of Brisbane Logistics Hub, providing them with a quality facility and new hardstand area that has immediate access to inbound logistics and Queensland’s key road infrastructure,” he added.

Darren Allen, Chief Executive Officer at IPS Logistics said: “As a business focused on containerised transport, warehousing and distribution activities for a wide range of imported and exported products across various sectors, location and access to key infrastructure is critical.

“Being located just a few hundred metres from the Stevedores, we offer our customers a safe cost effective service that is second to none. Our new hardstand capability means we can ensure quick turnaround for our transport partners and provide enough area to handle even the largest of our client’s needs. Our lease extension and additional space commitment is a great milestone for IPS and we look forward to continuing our growth as a market leader in Port based supply chain solutions,” he added.

In a report commissioned last year by the Port of Brisbane, it was found that following a 50% increase in freight over the past 10 years, freight is expected to continue to experience significant expansion with TEU output rising to 4.5 million by 2045. This growth, driven by growing customer demand, increasing consumer expectations, cost pressures and global competition, is driving organisations to reassess their supply chains.

The Port’s access to inbound and outbound freight and on-site warehousing, storage and world-class facilities in cargo handling infrastructure, provides tenant customers with a strategic logistics option for Queensland and northern NSW businesses.

LOGOS’ Australian and New Zealand portfolio includes assets and developments across New South, Victoria, Western Australia, Queensland and Auckland, with its development pipeline standing at over A$2 billion.
