Rogers Transport begins new era in Brisbane

The Rogers Transport family attend the ribbon cutting ceremony in Lytton for a new warehouse and offices facility.

Rogers Transport has cut the ribbon on its new warehousing and depot facility at the Port West Industrial Estate at Lytton.

Delivered by Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) and Principal Contractor, FKG, the 4.96ha site includes a 15,700m² warehouse, 1,450m² purpose-built workshop with fully automated truckwash, 370m² office and two recessed loading docks.

Supporting PBPL’s commitment to targeting a 5-star sustainability equivalent rating on all new property developments, the facility incorporates an EnviroConcepts water recycling system in the truckwash, which will reportedly reduce water use by over 90 per cent.

A 99kW rooftop solar system has also been installed along with water and energy efficient fittings, rainwater tanks for stormwater harvesting and reused and recycled materials in civil works.

PBPL CEO, Neil Stephens, welcomed Rogers Transport to the Port of Brisbane community.

“We’re delighted to hand over the keys to your new home less than a year since construction commenced,” said Stephens.

“This purpose-built facility and its proximity to the Port will help support more efficient, productive operations for Rogers Transport now and into the future.

“We’re grateful for the collaborative partnership our teams have developed throughout its design and development.”

For Rogers Transport, the move, according to General Manager – Finance & Operations, Chantelle Rogers, has been a number of years in the making.

“We’re all excited to see the project completed,” she said.

“The team did a great job and it was a pleasure working with FKG, Gaskin Construction Services, SPARC and the Port of Brisbane. We look forward to putting it to good use and moving forward into the future.”

Alongside Principal Contractor, FKG, the Rogers Transport development was delivered with project management by Gaskin Construction Services and architecture by SPARC.

Construction commenced in June 2023 and was completed in April 2024.

Rogers Transport has joined Port West alongside ten other global and national businesses including Bunnings, Fisher & Paykel, Steelforce and iOR, with Stage 1 of the 89-ha estate now fully committed.

Immediately adjacent to Port West Stage One, the second stage of the Port’s industrial estate is being progressively developed to meet market demand.
