This is a strategic location for distribution, being on the main freight route to and from Fremantle Port, and providing easy access to all of Perth’s major arterial road networks including Stock Road, Kwinana Freeway and Roe Highway. There is also a dense residential population surrounding the site with approximately 590,000 people within a 15km radius.
Major occupiers in the area include D’Orsogna Small Goods, Gage Roads Brewing, Koala Self-Storage, Vinidex, and Transperth O’Connor Bus Depot
The property is leased entirely to Sealanes, a wholly owned subsidiary of Superior Food Services, a private equity backed national food service distributor and the third largest food service distribution business in Australia.
Sealanes has a large-scale operation in Western Australia, originally established in 1895 as a small grocery shop in Fremantle. Over more than 100 years, the company has grown through four generations of family and today it is the premier Food Service, Seafood Distribution and Ship Supply company in Western Australia. The sale to Superior Food Services in 2016 has defined a wider national reach, with over 20 branches and business premises across the country.
Superior Food Services has developed a sound reputation as a market leader in storage and distribution services, with major customers including Hungry Jacks, Domino’s, Subway, Guzman Y Gomez, Compass Group and Sodexo to name a few.
