Locate to Parkes
The Parkes National Logistics Hub represents one of the most exciting industrial developments in Australia as it is the largest greenfield intermodal site in New South Wales and potentially Australia.
From Parkes, 16 million people or over 80% of the Australian population can be reached in less than 12 hours. Parkes has ready access to all major cities in Australia which includes readily accessible rail connections to all major seaports. This further defines the strategic locality of the Parkes National Logistics Hub project.
The centralised location of Parkes reduces the average distance that freight needs to travel to reach the major markets throughout Australia. This results in significantly lower transport costs for distribution. Other cost savings can also be achieved with lower industrial land costs and wage costs.
Parkes also represents one of the most important locations in the future development of transport and logistics in Australia. Extensive planning has been undertaken into the potential of building a new dedicated freight line between Brisbane and Melbourne. This would reduce the reliance on road transport between the two major cities and Parkes would be one of the major hubs on this line due to the intersection with the transcontinental rail line.
Parkes offers an unparalleled opportunity to develop a centralised operation and will allow companies to facilitate leading edge logistic operations and logistics chain management.
The Hub will provide global competitive advantages to new businesses due to the globally integrated companies already well established in Parkes with access to international markets via the extensive transport network.
