Stockland has today announced that leading Australian e-commerce company, New Aim, will move into the first completed building at Melbourne Business Park, one of the largest masterplanned industrial precincts in Melbourne.
The modern and sustainable 31,500 square metre facility, which is targeting a 5 Star Green Star rating, is located at 90 Melbourne Drive in Truganina, a rapidly growing corridor in Melbourne’s west.
Melbourne Business Park is well connected to the western arterial road networks, including the Western Freeway, the Western Ring Road and the future Outer Metropolitan Ring Road.
The move to Melbourne Business Park will help New Aim continue its expansion, which has seen delivery of consumer brands and products from online marketplaces to more than 60 percent of Australian households since 2005.
Stockland’s Executive General Manager for Logistics, Tony D’Addona said they were delighted that New Aim has chosen Melbourne Business Park as its newest location.
“We’ve seen many businesses attracted to the precinct’s strategic location in Melbourne’s west with easy connections to the western arterial road networks, including the Western Freeway, the Western Ring Road, and the future Outer Metropolitan Ring Road, as well as Melbourne Airport, the Port of Melbourne, and Melbourne’s CBD,” said Mr D’Addona.
“Stockland has a $6.4 billion development pipeline of modern, flexible and future-proofed facilities that are essential infrastructure to drive our cities’ economies, local employment opportunities and business success.
“We highly value the long-term partnership with New Aim that started in 2016 with 5,000 square metres at our Brooklyn Distribution Centre, increased to 65,000 square metres, and now continues at Melbourne Business Park.”
Fung Lam, Co-Founder and CEO of New Aim, said: “The move to Melbourne Business Park is an exciting evolution of our company which started as an eBay store in 2003 and is now among the fastest-growing private e-commerce companies in the Asia-Pacific.
“From this new, modern facility, our team will operate our business-to-many model partnering with more than 40 Australian online marketplaces and omnichannel retailers to dispatch goods to business customers and direct consumers across Australia,” said Mr Lam.
