Booth Transport secures six hectare lease in Melbourne’s west

Freight company Booth Transport has secured a six hectare site in Melbourne's Laverton North, in one of the biggest leasing deals in the city's west this year.

Booth will move into Kalari Transport’s former Laverton North headquarters on Fitzgerald Road, which comprises about 11,000 square metres of warehouse space.

Colliers International’s Nathan Bingham and Stephen Newsham negotiated the lease.

Year to date, it is estimated 110,000 square metres worth of industrial property above 3,000 square metres has been leased in Melbourne’s western precinct, which encompasses Laverton North, Derrimut, Truganina, Brooklyn, Altona and Sunshine.

“Colliers International’s Melbourne West office is currently handling a whopping 280,000 square metres of enquiry,” said Mr Newsham.

“Much of this leasing enquiry involves the awarding of third party logistics contracts whilst other deals are predominantly the result of companies restructuring their property requirements to lower costs and improve their overall efficiencies."

“Business expansion is also another common reason for relocation or the take-up of new space."
