Introducing our new custom-built facility at Brisbane Airport
We’re continually investing in the expansion and improvement of our capabilities and integrated service offering to deliver excellence to our customers. As a result, we’re upgrading our equipment processing operations and bringing these to a new Queensland site.
Our equipment processing and technical services facility in Brendale, Queensland will move to Brisbane Airport in early 2023.
The new facility and distribution hub will offer customers across sectors such as agriculture, mining and construction, trucking and automotive, and others, better access to key markets and the ability to streamline their supply chains. With unparalleled connections to air, road transport hubs and Brisbane Port, the site will provide a gateway to Queensland and beyond, supporting importers in being more responsive to local demand.
Construction progresses at our new EPC
The site will offer a full scope of electrical, mechanical and engineering services, as well as the ability to store, assemble, refurbish, preserve and transport products. It will include a warehouse and workshop equipped with overhead gantry cranes, wash bays and two paint booths capable of conducting full resprays of equipment and machinery, together with 42,000sqm of outside storage.
With more than two decades of experience supporting customers in Australia across five strategically located equipment processing centres, we have the expertise to help OEMs achieve excellence in the delivery of local market requirements.
Sustainability was an important deciding factor when it came to choosing the location for the new site. “Given our focus on sustainable supply chains, Brisbane Airport’s combination as a key intermodal hub and its low-carbon goals made it a clear choice for our logistics centre,” says Prakash Joshi, Wallenius Wilhelmsen’s general manager for land-based operations in Australia.
The site, which will be fully operational from February 2023, is being developed by BNE Property.

More than ever, our customers are looking for increased resilience and flexibility in their supply chains.

“With the continued growth and need for logistics services in Queensland and beyond, we look forward to showcasing this facility to our customers and partners shortly,” comments Kim Buoy, SVP, logistics services, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Oceania.
