DB Schenker has opened its largest Australian supply chain and warehouse facility at the Redbank Motorway Estate in Ipswich, Queensland, which it says has created 70 new jobs.

The German company will spend over $40 million over the next decade on the 85,000sqm site, which has warehouse coverage of 31,500sqm.

The Redbank site, on the south-western outskirts of Brisbane, will handle more than 5,200 container movements a year, transporting brown and white goods as well as consumer products to wholesale and retail locations across Australia.

Schenker Australia CEO Ron Koehler said the new centre would play a significant role in meeting the company’s services including container and truck unloading, receiving, storage, pick & pack, despatch and distribution along with inventory management.

"With significant growth in our domestic operations, we needed to expand beyond our Brisbane Airport footprint and open a second facility to service Queensland,” Mr Koehler said.

'We considered over 40 sites from the Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast before deciding on this location, given the commitment of the City of Ipswich to work collaboratively and effectively with us to create efficiency for business and jobs for the local community.”

"It is also attractive given the Federal Government’s recent commitment to infrastructure investment in the region, including major road works and the development of a heavy rail line from the Port of Brisbane through to Toowoomba.”
