eStore Logistics commits to two new sites in Melbourne

eStore Logistics has signed up for two major concurrent industrial properties in Melbourne, totalling 35,000-square-metres.

The largest of eStore’s two commitments is a long-term lease on a new purpose-built 26,000-square-metre facility with Dexus at 8 Felstead Drive, Truganina.

The facility is located within Dexus’s industrial estate, Foundation at Truganina, which recently secured Secon Freight Logistics, Dunlop Flooring and Coles as customers.

The property will feature purpose-designed column grids to maximise storage capacity,
drive-around access, a large super-canopy, a number of environmentally sustainable design (ESD) initiatives and eStore’s new national head office.

“Australian eCommerce and omni-channel retail continues to grow at a rapid rate. We are experiencing this with our existing clients and we’re keen to make our warehousing and fulfilment services available to as many Australian businesses as possible. In doing so we are expanding the business by taking long term leases on these two additional fulfilment centres and implementing new fulfilment technology,” Leigh Williams, Founder and Managing Director of eStore Leigh Williams said.

“Both of these fulfilment centres are strategically located in Melbourne and will feature
leading eCommerce fulfilment technology and automation that provide fast same-day
fulfilment and flexible solutions to our clients,” Leigh added.

Dexus has appointed construction firm Qanstruct to deliver the distribution centre
and head office for eStore Logistics, which is expected to be complete in mid-2020.

Director of Property at TM Insight Nathan Bingham, who has represented eStore since 2012, says, “Since I started working with eStore, they have secured over 100,000-square-metres of space around Australia. This speaks to the growth of ecommerce in Australia, but also eStore’s leading service in online fulfilment.”

eStore has also concurrently committed to a five-year lease for a 8,383-square-metre
development with Goodman within its West Industry Park estate in Truganina. eStore will
commence operations immediately from the facility located at 16 Vulcan Drive, Truganina.
