Construction Begins – Regional Trade Distribution Centre – Wellcamp Airport, Toowoomba


The Queensland State Government has announced that initial earthworks have begun on the Toowoomba’s new regional trade centre.

The announcement comes after the government placed it support with up to $10 million to invest in a regional trade hub, focusing on exports for Toowoomba and the Darling Downs.

Kate Jones Minister for State Development, Tourism and Innovation announced that the Wagner Corporation has finalised details ahead of construction on the Regional Trade Distribution Centre (RTDC) being delivered by the Queensland State Government at Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport. The announcement also comes after the government invested up to $10 million in support of a regional trade hub, focusing on exports, for Toowoomba and the Darling Downs.

“We’re working hard to fast-track projects that will get our economy moving again,” “Earthworks will start immediately. This means jobs for local construction workers and contracts for suppliers.”

“This hub will generate millions of dollars’ worth of business for local companies – particularly primary producers and exporters in the region,” “We know that businesses are taking a hit due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to get this hub up and running as soon as possible and the Wagners agree.

“The Wagner Corporation has submitted its development application for the 3500 square metre RTDC facility to Toowoomba Regional Council and to provide work continuity to its staff, the company  is getting a head start on the initial bulk earthworks at the airport.

“This will give our  world-leading primary producers and exporters an edge, allowing them to return to international marketplaces that are keen to get as much of Queensland’s high-quality products as they can.” Ms Jones said.


In October 2019, the Queensland State Government announced Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport as one of two successful tenders vying to develop a multi-million-dollar regional export hub.

The expansion will comprise state-of-the-art large cold and freezer rooms and both temperature-controlled and ambient large transit areas. The new facility will be used to export premium goods including, but not limited to, beef, dairy products, fresh fruit and vegetables, pork and packaged nuts.

Wagner Corporation Chairman John Wagner said as a proud Toowoomba-based company they were delighted to be working with the Queensland Government on such a first-class export facility and promoting the growth of Australian exports and jobs.

“We offer a very efficient cargo service and it’s about quick access and quick turnarounds,” “Wellcamp’s international freighter operations began in late 2016 and are showing year-on-year growth for both inbound and outbound volumes”. “The growth includes major defence support and a focus on perishable products to Asia and the Middle East which we expect to return to normal post-COVID-19.” Mr Wagner said.
