AMI doubles Sydney capacity
Airfreight wholesaler AMI has relocated to a new facility on Hale St, Botany which is almost double the size of its previous Sydney base. The new facility, which is just a few minutes’ drive from the airport cargo terminal, has more truck doors, a new 20ft pallet hoist complementing its existing pallet handling equipment, and lifting equipment for heavy and outsize cargo.
Coinciding with the move, AMI has also extended its range of services to include 3PL and e-commerce support services, as well as ocean freight. AMI performs cargo terminal collections and deliveries from 0300 to late daily, using its own vehicle fleet complemented by sub-contracted vehicles to cater for peaks in demand.
AMI Sydney acts as the international hub for much of AMI’s traffic to and from its growing domestic network of branches in Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Darwin, and Auckland and Christchurch in New Zealand.
Geoff Young, AMI’s VP- South Pacific, commented: “Our Sydney business has grown dramatically in the last 18 months.
“The new building has been eagerly awaited by several new customers, and will enable that growth to continue. Our closer location to the airport, extended operating hours and expanded capabilities provide a more convenient and efficient alternative for agents than delivering cargo direct to, or collecting it from the constantly-congested airport cargo terminals.”
