Secon finalises Victorian consolidation strategy

  • Posted on Wednesday 3rd, July 2019.

Transport company, Secon Freight Logistics (Secon), has secured an additional 33,310-square-metre facility in Truganina, Victoria.

Secon partnered with specialist property and supply chain firm, TM Insight, to secure the new Truganina facility. This new premium grade building at 47-53 Foundation Road, Truganina was developed by Dexus and will be under a long-term lease term with Secon commencing July 2019.

This is reported to be the largest deal for an existing building in Victoria this year and comes after Secon’s recent commitment to a 21,000-square-metre purpose-built logistics hub on 90,000-square-metres of land in Truganina with Berton Investments.

The development features two warehouses with high internal clearance to maximise storage volume
and multiple access points for vehicles. The two warehouses are 17,910-square-metres and 15,400-
square-metres and will be connected by an external concrete hardstand that allows for flexible adouble truck access through the site.

The site will also feature 6,000-square-metres of super-canopy areas to protect the loading of
vehicles.

“Further to our recent announcement on the construction of our Niton Drive home, Secon is now excited to announce the signing of a long-term lease with Dexus," said Secon CEO, Steve Nailer.

“This newly constructed purpose-designed contract logistics complex is strategically located three
kilometres from our Niton facility and will provide further opportunities to drive efficiencies in our business, and importantly allow us to continue to improve service levels for our customers.

"This will finalise our Victorian consolidation strategy, allowing us to create a leading-edge operational footprint to accommodate our continued growth," he said.

“These recent commitments by Secon establish them as one of the largest occupiers of industrial space in Victoria, firmly cementing Secon’s position amongst the major players in the transport and logistics sector," said TM Insight Director of Property, Nathan Bingham.
