AMI moves to new Brisbane facility ahead of airport expansion

By Damian Brett

Airfreight wholesaler Air Menzies International (AMI) has moved its Brisbane operation to a new purpose-built facility within the Brisbane Airport Industrial Park development as it prepares for the opening of the airport’s new runway.

Compared with AMI’s previous building, the new facility offers an increase in warehouse space, improved docking space, and new customs bond and quarantine areas.

The move will coincide with the opening of Brisbane Airport’s second runway, which will commence operations on July 12.

In total, the airport will spend A$3bn upgrading the airport, including improvements to the transport infrastructure around the airport.

Sonya Ashcroft vice president operations, Asia Pacific for AMI, said: “AMI has been located around Brisbane Airport for over 20 years, so to be able to move to a new state of the art facility within Brisbane Airport Industrial Park development was an ideal move for AMI. This significant investment was required for us to be able to upgrade our capabilities and continue to assist all our customers and agents, complementing the wider investment BAC is undertaking.”

AMI chief executive Jonathan Clark added: “The facility is a massive improvement in size and infrastructure to what we had before. This is now the third brand new facility we have moved into over the last two years following on from the successful developments in Melbourne and Perth.”
