The Courier Guy leases a 10,000m² Courier Warehouse at King Air Industria

The Courier Guy has  leased a 10,000m² , purpose built Courier Warehouse at King Air Industria 

The Courier Guy, founded in 2000, has built a strong reputation through strong customer relations and effective personal service. Today The Courier Guy is trusted, recognized and the fastest growing courier company in South Africa.

The deal was introduced by Guy de la Porte from Airport Property, who says that Atterbury provided an unbeatable turnkey proposal for The Courier Guy. He adds “King Air Industria provides The Courier Guy with all the benefits of a world-class industrial park, situated very close to Cape Town International Airport’s freight terminal.”

The Courier Guy outgrew its current premises and sought a bigger facility to accommodate its ongoing expansion. It identified the 72ha King Air Industria as its ideal location with the necessary security and flexibility for its immediate needs and future growth requirements.

The superbly located purpose-built facility at King Air Industria is being developed by leading property investors and developers Atterbury Property and Old Mutual Properties, just minutes from Cape Town International Airport.

The Courier Guy’s new facility will provide 2,000m2 offices and 8,112m2 warehouse space in its first phase. The building’s design provides the ability to almost double the size of their facility over 10 years, without paying a premium now.

Another critical aspect of the development is that every element of The Courier Guy’s new facility is designed to support its efficient operations. Three sides of its warehouse have multiple dock levellers, and there are almost 100 doors into the warehouse.

The new facility will have two access-and-egress points to enable excellent traffic flows, which translates to efficient product flow.

King Air Industria is on a prime site between Airport Approach, Borcherds Quarry, Robert Sobukwe and Palotti Roads. It benefits from the city’s extensive upgrades to Robert Sobukwe and Borcherds Quarry Roads, and the developers are investing in upgrades to King Air Industria’s surrounding roads. King Air Industria offers excellent traffic flows in the region via the N2 highway.

The Courier Guy commenced trading from its new premises on 1 August 2021.

The development of King Air Industria creates quality space for local and multinational businesses that prioritise being close to the Cape Town International Airport and value easy access to major arterial roads. The King Air Industria Cape Town site allows for the development of 280,000mof facilities, with its buildings ranging from 2,500m2 to 150,000m2.
