PortGate Logistics signs on for 30 years in Brisbane

  • Posted on Wednesday 10th, April 2019.

Transport and logistics operator, PortGate Logistics, will relocate to a new three hectare site as part of the Fisherman Islands development at the Port of Brisbane.

A sub-tenant of Portgate Properties, PortGate Logistics has committed to a 30-year lease deal that will include purpose-built facilities comprising a 6000 square metre warehouse, container hardstand, office building and car parking.

Additional areas will be developed for log storage and pack-unpack facilities.

Portgate Properties Pty Ltd currently sub-lease several warehouses and hardstand areas within the Port of Brisbane PortGate precinct where it has maintained a presence since 2006.

Brothers Steve and Terry Tzaneros have run container parks on Fisherman Islands since the early 1990s.

Port of Brisbane CEO, Roy Cummins, said the lease not only reaffirmed PBPL’s long-standing partnership with PortGate Logistics, but the new location would enable PortGate Logistics to deliver great benefits to its customers.

“We were very pleased to be able to work closely with PortGate Logistics to identify an opportunity for them to relocate ‘on Island’, which will also allow their customers more convenient access to the container terminals,” he said.

“This is another demonstration of the Port of Brisbane’s ability to work with our existing customers to support their relocation or expansion requirements, and provide long-term certainty for all parties," said Cummins.

“The Port of Brisbane’s property revolution continues to go from strength to strength.”

In a joint statement, Arthur and John Tzaneros said, “For PortGate Logistics to continue growing it needed to move on their own designated site, Office, Warehouse, Full Container Park & Reefer Area, Large Fumigation areas for Containers, Break Bulk Area, the Facility will also be licenced as a Bond & Quarantine Facility as well as being a few hundred metres from the Container Terminals."

"This is only part of our strategy for our future and the Port of Brisbane has enabled us to make this work, we look forward in working with the Port of Brisbane and all our clients into the long future we have ahead of us.”

PortGate Logistics has engaged Space Frame to construct the facility.

Construction is expected to be completed June 2019.
