Parkes is a thriving town located within the Central West of New South Wales. Strategically situated at the cross roads of the Newell Highway, connecting Brisbane and Melbourne, and the transcontinental railway linking the eastern seaboard to Perth, Parkes is at the logistics centre of Australia. This unique characteristic has made Parkes one of the most strategically significant locations in the future of transport and logistics in Australia.
Parkes Shire Council, with approval from the State Government, has rezoned 516 hectares of agricultural and industrial land on the western edge of the town for the development of the Parkes National Logistics Hub with an additional reserve of over 100 hectares. The site has been specifically designed for the 24 hour, 7 days per week operation of a multi-modal transport facility.
This Hub has received interest from several of Australia's largest and most successful transport and logistics companies who have recognised the immense strategic importance of the development. Transport companies with significant landholdings and operations in the Hub include SCT Logistics, Asciano and Linfox.
Major investment opportunities are available to businesses looking to take advantage of what Parkes has to offer as there is significant potential for logistics, manufacturing and distribution companies to relocate to the Hub to centralise their national warehousing and distribution operations.
