Global logistics outfit signs 30-year lease at Port of Brisbane

A global logistics and supply chain operator has been welcomed to the Port of Brisbane after it signed a 30-year lease.

The arrangement with MEDLOG is on a 7.3 hectare site on Fisherman Islands and is said to support the company’s business expansion into Queensland.

When operational, the new facility will be one of the world’s most automated container parks, incorporating high-end technology to deliver world-class standards in terms of operation and safety.

Port of Brisbane (PBPL) will develop the site to MEDLOG’s specific requirements for the storage and operations of both empty and fully laden containers.

The facility is expected to be operational by the third quarter of 2022.

As is standard in all new PBPL property developments, it will also include sustainable design elements including a solar installation and use of low carbon concrete.

PBPL CEO, Neil Stephens, welcomed MEDLOG to the Port of Brisbane.

“MEDLOG’s expansion into Queensland and its new home at Port of Brisbane speaks volumes about its confidence in the Port being the right place to support its long-term growth,” he said.

“Port of Brisbane is on a journey to become Australia’s premier port and logistics hub. Welcoming industry leaders such as MEDLOG plays a key role in ensuring the Port of Brisbane achieves this vision and continues to deliver for the Queensland economy and community well into the future.”

MEDLOG currently has a presence in over 70 countries and handles over 15 million TEUs annually.

It is one of the businesses within the MSC Group, a global business engaged in the transport and logistics sector.

MEDLOG is an independent logistics provider of flexible multimodal transportation solutions and inland storage services and has been operating in Australia since 2008.
