$50 million
ACFS' needs:
  • Approaching lease expiry in Victoria on a stand-alone 3PL warehouse.
  • ACFS wanted to expand their 3PL footprint whilst also combining that with a container logistics operation in Melbourne’s core western market.
  • TMX’s supply chain consulting team designed and optimised operational footprint to maximise storage flexibility whilst also designing a container handling operation that was leading edge in design.
  • This operation had to consider ACFS significant footprint at the port of Melbourne and be complimentary in design and location.
  • Design elements that are flexible as client requirements change during the life of the building.
The TMX difference
  • Preparation of all concept designs via TMX’­s internal architects.
  • Detailed design specifications was prepared inclusive of specific design elements relating to the 125 t rated container pavement and 100 t front axle load reach stacker.
  • Specifications also included a flexible racked solution to seven pallets in height to allow for changing storage requirements.
  • TMX ran a thorough procurement process to select the best site and developer for the requirement.
  • TMX ran the racking tender on behalf of the client, including advice on slotting and layouts.
  • Ongoing design management to ensure that the specification requirements were met and the design suited the operation.
  • Ongoing construction management to ensure quality and on time outcomes.
