Wettenhalls now has new heavy haulage and specialist transport division

Australia-based transport and logistics company Wettenhalls has acquired heavy haulage company Allied Transport Services (ATS).

Wettenhalls, which transports food and provides specialist bulk and container logistics across the length of Australia’s eastern seaboard, said the acquisition was a powerful and strategic alliance that would not result in any job losses.

In 2009 ATS streamlined its operations to focus solely on the transportation of construction machinery. According to Wettenhalls, the company now oversees an estimated 18,000 transport moves a year with a fleet of 40 vehicles.

The new division formed by the acquisition of ATS will be named Wettenhalls Heavy Haulage and Specialised Services. It will offer end to end transport including project management, route surveys, engineering design and employ up to 400 staff.
