Toll Group opens A$10 million healthcare distribution facility in Brisbane


Toll Group today announced the opening of a new healthcare warehouse and distribution facility in the Brisbane suburb of Richlands. The cutting-edge facility is a A$10 million investment over the next ten years that will support the delivery of patient-critical healthcare products to Queensland communities.

Queensland’s Assistant Minister for Health and Regional Health Infrastructure Julieanne Gilbert MP officially opened the facility.

The custom-built distribution centre has storage capacity of 4,600 sqm across ambient and cool-room facilities including ultra-low freezers for the storage and distribution of specialised vaccines.

“This investment reflects Toll’s commitment to creating advanced warehouse management solutions to meet the changing dynamics in the healthcare sector. The facility provides fast, accurate and compliant delivery for our customers,” Perry Singh, Toll President Government & Defence, said.

The facility has been custom designed to support the unique requirements of customers including CSL and Queensland Health, and will store and manage inventory of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, vaccines, and consumer health products. It will be the primary distribution centre of National Immunisation Program flu vaccines for Queensland Health in 2023.

The facility has a 5 Green Star Rating and features recyclable water usage, energy efficient/motion-sensored LED lighting, and a roof solar power system to provide green energy.

The Richlands facility is Toll’s fifth healthcare facility in Australia, and the company also has healthcare facilities in Singapore, China and India. The new site is located 24 kilometers from central Brisbane and close to major highways. The facility is licensed with the Therapeutic Goods Administration and the only healthcare facility in Queensland that is Good Management Practice certified.

Toll is investing A$400 million in the Australian market over the next four years across facilities, fleet and technology to support customer growth in the region.
