    Brisbane Depot Marks Over 30 Years

    Brisbane was a very different city when Northline established a depot in the Queensland capital more than 30 years ago, but the timing proved to be fortunate with the city about to boom.

    Brisbane’s population was just over 1.2 million, but since 1990 it was recorded the highest rate of population growth of all state capital cities, with the population today topping 2.4 million.

    At the time, Northline saw an opportunity to service the Northern Territory from Queensland.

    Brisbane had a reasonable manufacturing base but more importantly was a major distribution centre for goods made in New South Wales and Victoria into the Northern Territory and Western Australian markets.

    Northline established an office and warehousing depot at Theodore Street, Eagle Farm on the outskirts of Brisbane, before moving to Rocklea on the other side of the city to be closer to key transport infrastructure.

    During this time, Brisbane was growing rapidly along with the Queensland economy, and so with it was Northline, as a network of agents was established to service regional Queensland from Brisbane to Cairns.

    Since then Brisbane has prospered, more recently under the leadership of State Manager, Queensland Scott Dillon along with a great team, who this year took out Northline’s Branch of the Year.
