The Airport Business Park at Brisbane Airport has been taking shape since 2019.

Dubai based logistics giant Aramex, formerly known here as Fastway Couriers, has pre-committed to a major distribution centre (artist’s impression, top) within a 100 hectare business park taking shape beside Brisbane Airport.

The 26,120 square metre lease agreement – the biggest yet for the landlord, Brisbane Airport Corporation, which has been establishing the precinct, the Airport Business Park, since 2019 – kicks in upon completion mid next year.

About 1050 sqm of the lettable area will be offices.

The warehouse meanwhile will include pallet racking, freight sorting and a customer collection zone.

There will also be 157 car parks and 14 bicycle bays.

Australia Post, DHL, Downer, GPC Repco, Haymans Electrical and Miele are amongst other occupiers in the estate.

Aramex operates out of 200 cities in 58 countries (story continues below).

The Brisbane Airport property is expected to accommodate 60 full time staff and over 120 courier franchisees.

“BAC has accelerated its commercial property offering to become South East Queensland’s premier industrial zone, offering unparalleled amenity, transport connectivity and development potential,” executive general manager, Martin Ryan, said.

“The size of this [Aramex] development highlights the potential for logistics and industrial development at Brisbane Airport at scale,” he added. “With freight and logistics industries becoming increasingly important, the unrivalled transport links of Brisbane Airport offer an ideal home for companies providing these essential services”.

The landlord added freight demand nation-wide is tipped to rise 60 per cent on pre-pandemic levels by 2040.
