Northline gets to work on new transport facility in Townsville
Northline CEO Craige Whitton says the company's customers will benefit from the new Townsville facility.


Transport and logistics firm Northline is continuing to expand its reach along Australia’s east coast with the construction of a new facility in north Queensland.

The $3 million transport and logistics facility at Townsville is in close proximity to the Bruce Highway at Mount Louisa. The 2,000 square-metre is due to be built by late December.

Once built, the site will mark the fourth distribution centre Northline has built in Australia in the past two years.

"We’ll now have purpose built facilities along the east coast from Melbourne to Townsville, to provide both greater efficiency and capacity for our customers" Northline CEO Craige Whitton says.

"Townsville has been part of the Northline distribution network for more than 12 years and the company’s investment represents a vote of confidence in the local economy and supports local jobs."

Northline says the Townsville facility brings the company's expenditure on new facilities to more than $75 million in the past two years.

Those new facilities were built in Sydney, Brisbane and Darwin. Northline operates 13 branches throughout Australia.

Starting operations in 1983, Northline specialises in road and rail services, warehousing and distribution, freight forwarding and mining, construction, oil and gas logistics.
