7 Reasons To Have a 3PL Warehouse in Sydney’s South
Sydney is a vibrant, multi-faceted and ever-growing metropole on the East Coast of Australia. Strategically located along the populated East Coast, with the largest airport in Australia and the second largest industrial port. It combines many of the beautiful Australian features including breathtaking beaches, beautiful mountains, a diverse cultural scene and many more which is attracting thousands of people every year.
Due to its high growth rate in the last decades the city expanded so quickly that the infrastructure in some parts of Sydney has simply not been able to keep up. This among other factors shows why it is so beneficial to have a 3PL warehouse in Sydney’s South. Read on to learn more.
1. South Sydney is a highly strategic location for a 3PL warehouse
A 3PL warehouse in Sydney’s South that is located along South Sydney’s major arteries Rocky Point Road or Princess Highway allows for fast access to both the Airport and Port Botany (Sydney Container Port).
It quickly caters to all suburbs and important business hubs in the Sutherland Shire like Cronulla, Miranda, Caringbah, Engadine, Heathcote and others but also to areas nearer to the city like the Georges River Council, Rockdale as well as the Inner West.
The Illawarra Region, Wollongong and Port Kembla can be easily accessed through the Princess Highway. It is the gateway to regional locations of NSW's Southern Coast and its inland.
Going North has become much quicker due to the recently completed extensions on M1 and M5 giving fast access to Northern Sydney locations like Macquarie Park, Chatswood, North Sydney and many more.
2. Receiving cargo toll-free, at half the delivery costs
Some costs are hard to consider when choosing the right 3PL warehouse partner, simply because one does not know. Based on the position of a warehouse, additional costs can occur like tolls and large transport costs.
Compared to warehouse locations in Greater Western Sydney e.g. Smithfield, Prestons, Minto or Ingleburn cargo delivery from the Airport or Port Botany to Sydney's South is toll-free and in average half the price. So, every time you receive a new container or cargo from overseas these additional costs can bump up your invoice considerably.
3. Easily accessible cargo and stock equals faster distribution
Many warehouses are located near Port Botany and Sydney Airport. For the most part of the day these areas are highly congested. Two main reasons are peak hour traffic and the geographical constrictions of this area. Another major reason is the increase in vehicles based on the considerable influx of people with the expansion of Alexandria and neighbouring suburbs but without any substantial extension of the local infrastructure. In fact, it is quite the opposite.
This can make access to warehouse and stock highly stressful, especially when time is an issue. With a 3PL warehouse in South Sydney and a strategic time schedule this can be bypassed which enables faster access to cargo and quicker distribution.
4. Affordable commercial real estate
Sydney’s South offers an attractive location for small and medium sized businesses (SMEs).
Finding suitable office or business space in Sydney’s CBD and all surrounding suburbs can turn out to be very difficult. Rental and property prices have been skyrocketing for years in Sydney’s centre so finding a suitable but also affordable commercial place can be quite challenging if not impossible. Sydney's South and the Sutherland Shire has much to offer when it comes to affordable business space.
5. The flourishing industry of small / medium-sized businesses in Sydney's South
Many small businesses start out in homes and garages. Sydney’s South in particular has been the scene of a flourishing SME industry. When your business is gaining traction and outgrows your home it simply is a practical decision to choose a 3PL warehouse nearby allowing easy access and to meet your logistic partner when necessary.
