Port of Brisbane delivers new home for DSV

The Port of Brisbane has signed a 10-year lease agreement with DSV Air & Sea Pty Ltd to deliver a warehouse and container hardstand on a 4.8-hectare (ha) site on Fisherman Islands. 

The new Fisherman Islands facility aims to enable DSV, an existing port tenant with additional city sites, to bring its current Brisbane-based road and sea freight service operations to a central location. 

Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) will deliver a purpose-built facility to include a 16,008-square-metre warehouse, a two-storey operations office, and approximately 26,220 square metres of container-rated hardstand as well as awnings, and truck manoeuvring and car parking areas.

The development will also incorporate sustainable design elements including a 100 Kilowatts (kW) solar installation, the use of recycled materials in civil construction, low-carbon concrete in external pavements and energy efficient LED light fittings as well as the incorporation of water efficient hydraulic fittings and rainwater tanks for greywater use.

McNab has been appointed as Principal Contractor for the project and construction will commence in late March and is anticipated to be completed in late 2024. 

“As an existing customer, we were able to work together to understand DSV’s specific operational requirements while identifying a greenfield site within our Future Port Expansion area, immediately adjacent to the port’s terminals and wharves,” said PBPL CEO, Neil Stephens.  

“The purpose-built facility combined with this prime location will help DSV to realise significant operational and logistics efficiencies, supporting its operations now and into the future. As large, greenfield industrial sites close to both the Port and the CBD become increasingly harder to find, the Port of Brisbane works closely with existing and new customers to identify these opportunities.”

DSV Air & Sea Managing Director, Paul Thomson, further commented: “Queensland is set to erupt with a variety of infrastructure projects over the next 10 years, from the significant Renewable Energy developments in wind and solar together with the construction and supply of services for the 2032 Brisbane Olympics.

“This new facility will provide DSV with the space and resources needed to service these large-scale projects. The facility will also allow for the expansion of our Mining Supply Base to the Asia Pacific Region to Papua New Guinea.  

“We see huge opportunity for growth in this sector and the location close to the ports not only allows for efficient logistics to and from the port docks but also reduced costs and carbon footprint impact in container transportation requirements.”

Last summer, Global logistics company, Qube Logistics, successfully trialled its new Super B Double Double Stacked vehicle at the Port of Brisbane.

In the same week, the Port of Brisbane agreed to terms on a $500 million sustainability-linked loan, to be financed by a syndicate of 10 banks.
