Blue Water Shipping has been given the green light to establish a 50,000 sq m warehouse at the port of Brisbane in Queensland.
The warehouse will open by the end of next year and will position the company as the largest project forwarder at the port, enhancing its capacity for future projects within the state.
Steven Lofaro, managing director for Blue Water Australia, said that the warehouse is a pivotal addition to the expanding operations. He emphasised the strategic advantage of its proximity to the wharf and the value for Blue Water chartered tonnage that services the port of Brisbane: “By consolidating all our port activities within a single location and connecting shippers and consignees to our facility for streamlined one-stop import and export processing needs, we will unquestionably prove to be a significant asset,” he explained.
It will serve as a dedicated supply base facility for import and export operations, accommodating a mix of short-term transactional cargo and mid- to long-term storage services, comprising a 15,000 sq m indoor warehouse and a 31,746 sq m hardstand area.
Recently, Blue Water Shipping established a strategic hub in Santiago, Chile, to serve the Latin American market, a warehouse close to George Bush Intercontinental Airport, Houston, USA, along with a logistics warehouse for project and oversized cargo in Singapore.
