TNS Logistics moves to Port of Brisbane

Family-owned integrated logistics provider, TNS Logistics has signed a 10-year lease with the Port of Brisbane.

The agreement is for a 1.56ha site within the Port Gate Estate and will include a new 2,000sqm warehouse and corporate office.

In addition to this the site incorporates a wash bay and 7,617sqm dedicated hardstand; truck and trailer storage and onsite staff car parking.

It will also utilise an existing 1,075sqm warehouse to meet TNS Logistics’ specific requirements.

In keeping with Port of Brisbane sustainable design standards, the development will be designed to 5 star Green Star equivalent which will include a 100kW rooftop solar system, rainwater harvesting tanks, irrigated landscaping, and LED lighting amongst other ESD initiatives.

Construction is expected to commence by mid-2021 and be complete before Christmas.

Port of Brisbane CEO, Roy Cummins, welcomed TNS Logistics to the Port and said the Port Gate location, on the doorstep of Fisherman Islands, would provide TNS Logistics with a competitive edge.

“For those looking to be close to action, it doesn’t get much closer than our Port Gate Estate. We know that operators achieve significant logistics and cost benefits by relocating closer to the Port’s terminals and wharves,” said Cummins.

“We’re delighted to be able to support TNS Logistics’ capabilities now, while working closely with them to design and deliver a purpose built facility that will support their future growth plans,” he said.

Following two years of remarkable growth, TNS Logistics is counting on the move to help sustain its upwards trajectory in the highly competitive container and warehouse sector.

“The new Port Gate precinct will allow TNS to continue our growth by servicing our current customer’s and supporting their future growth at our new premises,” said Sharon Norton, TNS Logistics Director.

“The new facility will also double our current warehousing space and will support our current rapid growth within our new e-commerce division,” she said.

“The TNS team are all very excited and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at the Port for their support.”

Savills Australia Director, Shaw Harrison, whose company helped facilitate the move, recognised TNS Logistics had grown dramatically in recent years.

“Their growth is no fluke and is testament to a lovely family providing great service to their customers,” said Harrison.

“The Port of Brisbane have provided them with an outstanding solution that is going to be a first class facility, allowing their projected future growth.”

The agreement was negotiated by Shaw Harrison from Savills, with the facility to be designed by SPARC* Architects.
