Fonterra Is to Move to The Airport, Consolidate Seven Premises

Auckland Airport is to build a state-of-the-art new distribution centre for Fonterra’s New Zealand consumer business (Fonterra Brands New Zealand).

Fonterra Brands New Zealand (FBNZ) is scheduled to occupy the new premises under a long-term lease from March 2017. The 11,000sqm facility – which will enable FBNZ to consolidate multiple existing warehouses into a single, multi-temperature space – will be built on Timberley Road as part of Auckland Airport’s world-class industrial business park, The Landing.

Mark Thomson, Auckland Airport’s general manager – property, said attracting long-term tenants such as FBNZ to Auckland Airport’s business park is not simply about location, but is testament to the quality of the infrastructure provided for companies and their staff. Comprehensively landscaped, The Landing provides easy access to a range of social and leisure activities.

FBNZ’s managing director Leon Clement said the business is looking forward to the prospect of moving to the new facility at the airport as it will consolidate seven warehouses – four of its own and three third parties’ – into one, optimising storage and reducing complexity in freight movements.

“Our new distribution centre, which will be purpose-built for us, will help us deliver a step change in service to our export and domestic retail and foodservice customers.

“Having a single dispatch point in Auckland for all our dairy products, except ice cream, will greatly improve the efficiency of our North Island supply chain operation – for example, instead of supplying a customer order from two or three DC we will be able to supply it from one, reducing movements on busy roads and improving service levels for customers.

“We operate in a high-demand category and having the latest warehouse technology will also enable us to meet our customers’ expectations around the product mix they want when they want it.”

FBNZ will lease the building from Auckland Airport, but will be responsible for its operation.
