Direct Logistics and Ngāi Tahu Property celebrate the blessing of their newly completed fourth warehouse, ushering in an exciting phase of growth. The blessing, led by Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Taumata, marks the beginning of a new chapter for Direct Logistics, as they expand their footprint in the provision of 3PL (Third Party Logistics) and offer food-grade storage to FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods) clients.
Contracted Development Manager for Direct Logistics, Kevin Arthur, says he was impressed with the proposal from Ngāi Tahu Property and the positive working relationship throughout the building process.
"Direct Logistics prepared a comprehensive wish list for their new premises together with an outline specification for the warehouse, offices, and site works. We then researched possible commercial property partners before approaching three prominent developers. Each of them presented us with detailed offers, and it's fair to say they were all extremely high quality. However, we were particularly impressed with Ngāi Tahu Property's proposal."
Located at 320 Shands Road, Mānia sits in the heart of south-west Hornby, Christchurch, with a 41-hectare development area. This prime location offers proximity to various transportation networks, including the state highway network, providing easy access for heavy goods vehicles heading south, north, and west, as well as to Port Lyttelton. Additionally, the Southern Motorway link connecting Christchurch and Rolleston, Christchurch Airport (just 12 minutes away), and the KiwiRail network further enhance the strategic appeal of Mānia.
Shands Road, zoned as Heavy Industrial under the City Plan, stands adjacent to an established industrial, logistics, manufacturing, and transport hub, reinforcing Mānia as a key logistics center.
Direct Logistics' new warehouse at Mānia represents not only their commitment to excellence but also their vision for the future. As they embark on this exciting phase, the company remains dedicated to delivering exceptional logistics and storage services to their clients, with the support of an outstanding facility.
