efm Logistics secured  at Rubix Connect

12 FEBURARY 2021

Frasers Property Industrial in Australia has secured Australia and New Zealand’s largest 4PL (fourth-party logistics) provider, efm Logistics, for a 15,580 square metre speculative warehouse at its Rubix Connect precinct in Dandenong South, Melbourne. 

efm Logistics plans to consolidate its two current facilities to the new facility in Dandenong South in June 2021, streamlining its operations under the same roof for greater efficiency and in response to projected business growth. Together with a significant warehouse footprint, the new facility will include office space and 107 car spaces.  

The speculative facility for efm Logistics, within the 41.3-hectare Rubix Connect estate, is being developed concurrently with the adjoining pre-committed 19,815 square metre facility for Ozito with an end value of circa AU$60 million. Neighbouring properties on the estate include large occupiers Amazon, Woolworths, Bunnings and Aldi.  

One of the few remaining vacant land opportunities in south east Melbourne zoned for industrial use, Rubix Connect provides unrivalled access to prime transport arterials such as the Eastlink Freeway, South Gippsland Highway, the Dandenong Bypass, Princes Highway and Monash Freeway.  

Frasers Property has a strong track record in Melbourne’s south east, having recently completed the 100-hectare “The Key” Industrial Estate and 23-hectare “Braeside Industrial Estate”.  

Anthony Maugeri, General Manager Southern Region for Frasers Property Industrial, commented, “Occupiers recognise the benefits of Melbourne’s south east region and the thriving industrial market already at play there. Low vacancy and very limited opportunities for developable land in the area is attracting strong interest to the Rubix Connect precinct.” 

“The inclusion of quality spec facilities in our construction strategy has proven successful over the years, with strong leasing enquiries and pre-commitments, such as this with efm. We are excited to welcome them to the precinct and looking forward to creating a future-ready facility for their expanded operations,” said Mr Maugeri.  

Simon Slagter, CEO for efm Logistics, commented, “We are very excited to commission our new site in Dandenong South in partnership with Frasers Property Industrial. A key characteristic of efm is to provide customers an exceptional logistics experience and this purpose built, state-of-the art facility will allow us to enhance value for our existing customers, whilst establishing a showcase distribution centre for future growth.” 

Key features of the speculative warehouse to be built include a 10-metre springing height, four recessed loading docks, size on-grade roller shutter doors, an ESFR sprinkler system and a 35-metre-wide super awning. It will also utilise LED lighting and target a 5 Star Green Star Design & As Built v1 rating by the Green Building Council of Australia.
