CouriersPlease has opened a brand new facility, 50 per cent larger than the Perth airport depot it replaces. The new space will handle more than four million parcels annually, and open up 30 franchisee opportunities.

The High Wycombe facility will enable CouriersPlease to extend its operations from 52 territories to 60.

CouriersPlease, CEO, Richard Thame said “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.”

The Western Australia government is predicting a 5.25 per cent acceleration in the state’s economy this year. Last year the local economy grew by 4.7 per cent – twice the national rate.
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 a wealth of company contractor opportunities.”

The new Perth facility has achieved a Green Star standard for its sustainable build. Features include EV charging stations, solar arrays to futureproof the depot, enhanced internal ventilation and rainwater harvesting.
