DP World’s Brisbane Container Park recently broke ground
• The container park is the latest addition to DP World’s facilities in Brisbane, joining the Fisherman’s Island Terminal and the Brisbane Multimodal Terminal.
• The 10.4-hectare container park will provide beneficial cargo owners and liners operating on Australia’s east coast a one-stop-shop solution for storing and handling full and empty containers

DP World officially broke ground for the new Brisbane Container Park, located at the Port of Brisbane on Fisherman Islands.

The container park will be the newest addition to DP World’s infrastructure in Brisbane, which includes the Fisherman’s Island Terminal and the Brisbane Multimodal Terminal, DP World said in a statement.

Upon completion, the 10.4-hectare container park will provide beneficial cargo owners and liners operating on Australia’s east coast a one-stop-shop solution for storing and handling full and empty containers.

The project is in collaboration with the Port of Brisbane, logistics real estate specialist LOGOS, and construction firm McNab.

It is part of DO World’s ongoing expansion of its logistics capabilities in Australia, facilitating end-to-end movement of goods from the factory floor to the customer door.

The Brisbane Container Park extends DP World’s Depot Service offerings already present in Sydney and Melbourne. Notable features include Australia’s first two High Empty Reefer Pre-Trip Facilities and MT Handlers capable of stacking up to eight containers.

Nicolaj Noes, executive vice president for Oceania, DP World, said, “DP World has long recognized the importance of the Port of Brisbane in driving economic growth in Queensland and Australia. The Brisbane Container Park is a major milestone in our progress as an end-to-end supply chain solutions provider, expanding our footprint in the city and exemplifying our commitment to the development of Brisbane and Queensland through trade.”

“With this new facility, DP World will provide customers access to a holistic suite of supply chain services that can be tailored to their specific needs as they navigate a dynamic trade landscape and look to grow within Australia and beyond,” Noes added.

The expansion of DP World in Brisbane aligns with Queensland’s advantageous position on Australia’s eastern seaboard. The state’s strong business environment and skilled workforce contribute to its A$100 billion (around US$65 billion) export economy, representing over a fifth of the country’s exports.

The Port of Brisbane, as one of Australia’s fastest-growing container ports, plays a crucial role in supporting Queensland’s development, DP World said.

Situated at the mouth of the Brisbane River, the new container park is positioned to sustain the port’s capacity in response to growing trade volumes in the city, including increased demand for commodities such as crude oil, refined oil, and cement.

The upcoming 2032 Summer Olympic Games in Brisbane further underscore the potential for heightened trade and investment opportunities benefiting the entire region.

Justin Sherlock, LOGOS’ general manager of development in Queensland, said, “LOGOS is proud to be partnering with DP World to deliver their 10.4 ha Brisbane Container Park facility. We have a strong track record in delivering container parks, warehousing and distribution facilities across the region and at the Port of Brisbane.”

In Brisbane, DP World operates the Fisherman’s Island Terminal, equipped with stacking cranes, an advanced operating system, and 900 meters of quay line.

Customers have access to a full range of electronic business support, including electronic customs import release of cargo, electronic data interchange (EDI) reporting, and web-browser-based information services.

Earlier this year, the terminal welcomed the CMA CGM Pelleas, the longest container ship to ever dock in Brisbane.

Adjacent to the container terminal is the Brisbane Multimodal Terminal (BMT), with road and rail links to the city and the rest of the region. Ou

The dual-gauge rail link and location of the BMT make it possible to move large volumes of cargo into and out of the port by rail.
