CouriersPlease opens new facility in Perth

Australia’s franchised courier service, CouriersPlease, has opened a larger, state-of-the-art facility in Perth’s High Wycombe.

The new facility – which will replace the company’s Perth airport depot – is 50 per cent larger and anticipated to create at least 10 new jobs and 30 new Franchise Partner opportunities across Western Australia.

The High Wycombe facility on Adelaide St occupies a central location in the City of Kalamunda, and it will enable CouriersPlease to extend is operations from 52 territories to 60.

The launch is not only part of the company’s strategy to meet and contribute to the rising demand of Western Australia’s strong E-Commerce sector, but to bolster the City of Kalamunda’s local economy.

Kalamunda has a Gross Regional Product estimated at $3.4 billion with the transport postal and warehousing sector taking the top spot as the region’s largest industry.

CouriersPlease said the new facility will become a major pillar in that fast-growing local economy while being perfectly poised to service businesses and online shoppers in the City of Perth, which experienced a 7.21 per cent GRP hike in the year leading up to June 2023.

“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,” CouriersPlease CEO Richard Thame said.

The new Perth facility comes with a major green tick of approval, being built to achieve a sustainable Green Star certification with features spanning EV charging stations, solar arrays to futureproof the depot, enhanced internal ventilation and rainwater harvesting.
