A man will face a Sydney court accused of importing of almost $100 million worth of methylamphetamine using fake identities.

Drug and firearms squad detectives began investigating the 25-year-old following the discovery of 40kg of the drug in a storage unit at inner city Alexandria in May.

Two more shipments were detected with the help of Australian Border Force officers, a 2.9kg package from the United States in July and 1.2kg parcel from Pakistan in September.

The man was arrested at Alfords Point, in Sydney's south, on September 26.

He has been charged with eight offences including three counts of dealing with identity information to commit an indictable offence and two counts of possessing a commercial quantity of an unlawful import, namely a border-controlled drug.

He appeared before Sutherland Local Court the following day, where he was refused bail to appear at Downing Centre Local Court on Tuesday.

Police are expected to allege the man used false identities to receive drug shipments, which he intended to supply for profit.
