Toll provides freight forwarding services between Tasmania and mainland Australia.
Logistics giant Toll plans to purchase the Trans-Bass freight forwarding service of Linfox Australia, subject to approval from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

Both Toll and Linfox Trans-Bass provide freight forwarding services between Tasmania and mainland Australia.

The ACCC is considering the proposed acquisition under section 50 of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010, which prohibits mergers and acquisitions that substantially lessen competition in a market, or are likely to do so.

The ACCC is seeking comments from market participants and interested parties by close of business on Monday 15 April, 2013 to enable it to assess the likely competitive effects of the proposed acquisition.

Toll uses Toll ANL Bass Straight Shipping (a joint venture between Toll and ANL Container Line) for the operation of Bass Straight Shipping Services. Toll ANL handles a broad range of cargo including road trailers, industrial mobiles and heavy lifts, trucks, light commercial vehicles and cars.

Toll’s subsidiary, Toll Tasmania, provides domestic freight forwarding distribution services between mainland Australia and Tasmania. It primarily uses the shipping services of Toll ANL for movements of freight across Bass Strait.

Linfox provides logistics services across the Asia Pacific region. Linfox Trans-Bass is part of the Linfox business and is a freight forwarding operation (including linehaul and pick-up delivery services) servicing the Tasmania and mainland Australia (primarily the Melbourne and Sydney) route.
