A LEADING global logistics company plans to expand its footprint in Western Sydney by developing a multi-user “super site” warehouse like its facilities interstate.


The Dutch firm, CEVA, the world’s fourth largest logistics company, is on the lookout for a suitable site in the region.
 
“It will be in the western belt but it is just a matter of where we go,” said Adam Duncan, CEVA’s general manager for sales.
 
‘We don’t have a firm timeline but we are looking at it right now.”
 
The company’s $80M, 166,000-square-metre transport, distribution and logistics hub – equivalent to eight MCG playing fields – in Truganina, in Melbourne, is an example of what could be built in Western Sydney.
 
The facility is regarded at the forefront of a rapidly changing logistics sector where companies like CEVA incorporate tracking and smart building technology to handle all aspects of storage and distribution, including the return of goods, for their clients.
 
The building acts as a staging, storage and distribution point for a wide range of companies,
 
"We are able to accommodate [goods] from automotive to shoes," said Carlos Velez Rodriguez, managing director, for Australia and New Zealand.
 
The Truganina is one of eight major sites on Australia’s east coast leased to CEVA by Singapor0-based developer and builder Frasers Property Australia.
 
CEVA’s current presence in Western Sydney includes a 19,000-square-metre warehouse and office facility, at Minchinbury and 36,000 square metres of multi-user space, at Erskine Park.
 
CEVA was created from the merger of two companies with complementary strengths: the Australian firm TNT Logistics and the Texas-based Eagle Global Logistics (EGL).
