Arrow is a leader in the container cartage industry
Arrow Transport and Logistics has acquired Sydney Sideloaders, a top 10 container transport operator at the Port of Sydney.
Part of Arrow's ongoing strategy to grow its business, this acquisition positions Arrow to commence its operations in Sydney.
Sydney Sideloaders operates primarily from its site near the Port of Sydney terminals. Arrow will retain the site to service Sydney Sideloaders' existing client base as well as providing Sydney-based port logistics services to its own clients.
Chris Divis, director of Sydney Sideloaders, will remain with Arrow after the acquisition as port logistics manager NSW. Other members of the current operational team at Sydney Sideloaders will join the Arrow team. Arrow will also move some staff from Melbourne to Sydney to assist with the integration.
Arrow claims to be at the forefront of innovation in the container cartage industry. With a fleet of 40-plus trucks and 140-plus trailers, the company caters for drop trailer deliveries and also handles refrigerated deliveries.
The acquisition will formally complete on 2 September 2019.
