Sydney-based freight carrier, Ron Crouch Transport, has acquired an Adelaide business.
The announcement made yesterday has seen Ron Crouch Transport enter into contract for the acquisition of AG Logistics, a 3PL and transport company.
Based in Cavan, South Australia, AG Logistics operates a purpose-built and bunded warehouse licensed to store dangerous goods (DG) on a secure 9000 sqm site.
Established in 2002, the north Adelaide business is located within close proximity of interstate transport companies and has specialised in warehousing agricultural chemicals including plant protection products, crop nutrition liquids and seeds for manufacturers, distributors and suppliers.
The acquisition ensures Ron Crouch Transport can offer what it calls a complete 3PL solution for all DG and non-DG freight. It also includes food grade product.
Capacity is estimated at 2,500 pallets.
According to the company this will ensure consistency of service offering with all other sites within its growing network.
The acquisition is effective from 1 October, 2020.
