Northline’s new $24 million Sydney transport and logistics facility at Smithfield has opened and is now fully operational.

The 32,000 square metre facility, located at 15 Long Street, Smithfield in Sydney’s western suburbs, has been custom built to provide easy access to major transport links.

It provides more than 16,500 square metres of warehousing and freight operations space, including an all-weather loading and unloading breezeway and the company’s New South Wales state office.

The facility is part of an 11.79ha site controlled by a division of Charter Hall Funds Management Ltd (CH) and being developed and built by Commercial & Industrial Property Pty Ltd (CIP).

Northline chief executive officer Craige Whitton said the new Smithfield facility is fit for purpose.

“The improved efficiencies of the site will be of significant benefit to our customers who rely on Northline’s ability to move freight quickly and efficiently through our Facilities, said Mr Whitton.

Development approval for the new facility was granted in December 2013 and construction commenced in January.

The facility is expected to open mid-September 2014. It is located at Monash Road, Redbank, Queensland.
