Toll Group has announced a $200 million investment to open a new automated retail distribution centre in Kemps Creek, Sydney.
The facility will be Toll's largest Australian omni-channel facility, spanning 67,626 square metres.
It features $75 million of advanced automation technology and has been designed to support both e-commerce and retail store fulfilment.
The facility will have storage capacity of close to one million cartons, and through the use of automated picking stations and connected zone-routing stations, it will be capable of dispatching 37 million items each year.
Toll President Retail & Consumer, Nick Vrckovski, said the investment shows Toll's leadership in developing leading solutions for the retail industry.
"We’re seeing huge demand from our retail customers for fast, flexible warehouse solutions that meets the needs of Australia's savvy online and retail shoppers," he said.
"Our newest facility will give our customers fast, flexible fulfilment that integrates multichannel order management for immediate and accurate deliveries across all of Australia.
"Whether it's opening up new channels, offering more delivery options, or increasing warehouse capacity, our fulfilment solutions can adapt to the changing needs of retailers."
In addition, the facility will meet Toll's sustainability requirements with a 5 Green Star Design and As Built rating.
It will largely be powered by renewable energy through extensive solar panels, supported by battery storage.
Construction at the Kemps Creek site is due to commence in August 2023, with the facility expected to be fully operational in 2025.
The investment is part of Toll's broader strategy to grow the business with $400 million of new investments planned over the next four years.
Toll also recently opened a new $10 million healthcare warehouse and distribution facility in Richlands, Brisbane.
In other news, Coles has announced the opening of its first Automated Distribution Centre (ADC) in Redbank, Queensland, which is the largest single capital investment in the retail giant's history.
