The company said the facility will triple its parcel sorting capacity in the Melbourne area to 35,000 parcels per hour and will be the largest of its kind in Australia. Toll gained a A$100 million investment from Melbourne Airport to support the project, which should see the new facility operational by the end of 2015.
