Strategic Location for Transport & Logistics
Halfway between Melbourne and Brisbane
The strategic location of the Central Coast between Sydney and Newcastle, and halfway between Melbourne and Brisbane, with excellent transport links, available land and motivated workforce have made it a desired place for warehouse, logistics and distribution activities.
The region covers an area of 1,854 square kilometres of which 80% remains ‘natural’ and undeveloped, and is managed by one of the largest Local Governments in NSW, Central Coast Council.
80% of Australia’s population within driver limits
With 80% of Australia’s population within the requirements of truck driver time limits there is no need for the expense of driver changeovers.
6,000 freight trips each day between Sydney and the Central Coast
The M1 Pacific Motorway is a vital link for approximately 70,000 light vehicle trips and 6,000 freight trips each day between Sydney and the Central Coast. Light vehicle numbers reduce to around 40,000 north towards the Hunter Valley.
