PORT of Brisbane is now home to a new warehousing and depot facility for Rogers Transport, a transport provider and distribution specialist.

The new facility sits on a five-hectare site at the Port West Industrial Estate at Lytton.

It includes a 15,700-square-metre warehouse, 1450-square-metre workshop with fully automated truckwash, a 370-square-metre office and two recessed loading docks.

Port of Brisbane delivered the facility with principal contractor FKG.

PBPL CEO Neil Stephens said the port handed the keys over less than a year after construction commenced.

“This purpose-built facility and its proximity to the port will help support more efficient, productive operations for Rogers Transport now and into the future,” Mr Stephens said.

“We’re grateful for the collaborative partnership our teams have developed throughout its design and development, and look forward to continuing to work with you,” he told Rogers Transport.

Chantelle Rogers, Rogers Transport general manager – finance and operations, said the move to Port of Brisbane had been years in the making.

“We’re all excited to see the project completed,” she said.

“The team did a great job and it was a pleasure working with FKG, Gaskin Construction Services, SPARC and the Port of Brisbane.

“We look forward to putting it to good use and moving forward into the future.”

Alongside Principal Contractor, FKG, the Rogers Transport development was delivered with project management by Gaskin Construction Services and architecture by SPARC. 

Construction commenced in June 2023 and was completed in April 2024.

Rogers Transport has joined Port West alongside ten other global and national businesses including Bunnings, Fisher & Paykel, Steelforce and iOR, with Stage 1 of the 89-ha estate now fully committed. 

Immediately adjacent to Port West Stage One, the second stage of the port’s industrial estate is being progressively developed to meet market demand.
