New investments As our parcel volumes continue to grow each year we continue to invest in our business. This year our capital investments totalled $450 million across planned projects, asset replacements and acquisitions.
We continued our focus on our infrastructure and automation, enabling us to expand our processing capability and set our network up for success now and into the future.
Ahead of peak period we went live with a series of new investments including our brand-new Parcel Delivery Centre in Melbourne’s west which came on line in November. The facility represents a $71.7 million investment and at 28,500 square metres the site is capable of processing more than 100,000 parcels per day. On its busiest day the facility processed a record 148,440 parcels. With more than 200 delivery vans operating from the site, our team regularly deliver over 50,000 parcels per day to customers across 48 postcodes.
