Air Menzies International (AMI) – the world’s largest trade-only airfreight and express wholesaler – is moving its Melbourne, Australia operation to new and larger premises. AMI Melbourne had been operating at its previous location for over 30 years.

The brand new, state-of-the-art facility is located within the new Melbourne Airport Freight Precinct, just one kilometer and three minutes’ drive from the airport’s cargo terminals. It provides significantly larger warehouse, office and yard space, with a dock leveller, and awnings covering all loading bays. AMI’s range of services includes Approved Security Screening with multiple X-Ray machines and Explosive Trace Detection equipment.

Says AMI Regional VP Australasia, Geoff Young: “The new facility and addition to our truck fleet represents a significant investment in upgrading our capabilities at Melbourne, which is one of our largest operations in the Australasia region.

“In addition to providing quicker freight recovery and delivery through its proximity to the terminals, our new base gives us the capacity to handle larger volumes, particularly with the anticipated increase in security screening requirements. It will also enable us to assist our agent customers with 3PL opportunities and ocean container services.”
