LOGOS is to develop a purpose-built circa 13,000-square-metre logistics facility for LF Logistics, at its Marsden Park Logistics Estate in western Sydney, extending its partnership into the Australian market.
Having recently developed a three-storey, 102,197-square-metre facility for LF Logistics at its Wujiang FOHO Ecommerce Hub Logistics Center in China, LOGOS has started development of its Marsden Park facility inclusive of a multi-level mezzanine. LF Logistics has committed to a long-term lease on the facility, which is scheduled for completion in August 2020.
Darren Searle, LOGOS’ head of Australia and New Zealand said, “As an Asia Pacific logistics specialist, a key focus is on supporting our customers’ growth across the region and we are very pleased to be extending our partnership with LF Logistics for their first facility in Australia”.
“Marsden Park Logistics Estate offers tenants with excellent transport access to both the M7 and M4, enabling them to service greater Sydney and further afield; a key requirement given the continued growth in eCommerce,” Mr Searle said.
“We look forward to working with LF Logistics to deliver this new facility and welcome them to the Estate alongside existing customers Orrcon Steel, EBOS, Lyppard, Valleyfresh and eStore.”
Greg Amos, LF Logistics’ head of Australia said, “Following the successful Wujiang project, we are grateful to extend our fruitful partnership with LOGOS to our pioneer project in Australia.
“Marrying the strengths and expertise of the two companies, this new facility marks a strong start for our Australian operations as we build a greater presence and network across the country.”
LF Logistics partnered with property and supply chain firm TM Insight on the operational design and procurement of the new facility. TM Insight will also act as the project manager on behalf of LF Logistics.
Marsden Park Logistics Estate is owned by the LOGOS Australia Logistics Venture, a partnership established in late 2014 between LOGOS and its capital partners to acquire and develop prime logistics estates across Australia.
