“The co-location of fresh and chilled operations across a multi-storey site will also help remove more than 11,000 truck movements off Sydney roads each year, delivering environmental, traffic and road safety benefits to the community.”
The 76,000 sq m multi-storey fresh distribution centre at Wetherill Park is set to service more than 280 Woolworths stores across NSW, starting in 2023. The site will support up to 700 ongoing jobs and more than 500 jobs throughout construction.
The temperature-controlled site is more than six times the size of Bankwest Stadium at Parramatta and will have the capacity to distribute more than 3700 fresh produce and chilled lines.
Woolworths said the 35,000 sq m Kemps Creek Liquor DC will be managed by Primary Connect and service more than 400 Dan Murphy’s and BWS outlets across NSW under a partnership agreement with Endeavour Group from 2022.
Primary Connect has agreed an initial five-year lease on the site. It will replace the current Erskine Park Liquor DC, which will be converted into a facility to service Woolworths Supermarkets. Primary Connect has signed a lease extension at Erskine Park through to 2028.
