Australia’s fastest growing franchised courier service, CouriersPlease is opening a larger state-of-the-art facility in Perth’s east. The new High Wycombe facility allows CouriersPlease to expand into 60 territories and support the state’s economy.

The new facility – which will replace the Perth airport depot – is 50% larger and anticipated to create at least 10 new jobs and 30 new franchise partner opportunities across Western Australia.

CouriersPlease CEO, Richard Thame said the facility will more than just enhance logistics services for businesses and consumers throughout the region but allow CouriersPlease to better support the people of Perth and its retailers.

“The larger footprint of this innovative facility allows us to ramp up our processing speeds and essentially do what do now, but better, to help WA businesses flourish further,” Thame said.

“This space also enables us to process parcels more efficiently and, thanks to that added volume, we can quickly expand and provide density for our new franchise partners. We’re creating more jobs across the state, including a variety of positions in our sortation area and  company contractor opportunities.”

CouriersPlease WA state manger, Jamie Burgess added, “This facility significantly enhances our operational capacity and is designed to streamline our processes, allowing us to efficiently manage a projected volume of over four million parcels per year. The strategic location in Kalamunda allows us better access across Perth, directly benefiting our delivery efficiency and the overall customer experience.”

The Perth facility is being built to a sustainable Green Star certification with features spanning EV charging stations, solar arrays, enhanced internal ventilation and rainwater harvesting.
