Mainfreight has opened a new 1300 square metre food grade and dangerous goods certified 3PL warehouse in Sydney.

The official opening of the Kookaburra site will be 25 March.

The company‘s existing Sydney warehouses, Mainfreight Logistics Erskine Park and Mainfreight Logistics Moorebank, have been incorporated into the new Kookaburra site.

The new warehouse is located just off the M7 at 55 Yarrunga Street, Prestons NSW, offering convenient access to key motorways and main arterial roads. It is also just around the corner from Mainfreight‘s Prestons transport and logistics supersite. The close proximity of the two sites has strengthened the Sydney warehousing operations by minimising handling and reducing lead times within Mainfreight‘s network.

The Kookaburra site has a 4000m2 enclosed breezeway, 900m2 of office space, 27,000 racking spaces, 3500 satellite racking spaces, a 2000m2 mezzanine area, 16 rear loading docks, a 99kw solar power system, HACCP certification, Customs and Excise licensing for alcohol (bonded storage), and Class 1.3 AQIS certification.
