TRANSPORTATION of foodstuffs, chemicals and milk products is expected to form the business basis of a new joint venture in Australia between HOYER Group and AAW Global Logistics.
The venture, HOYER Logistics Australia, was agreed in May.
HOYER Group, based in Hamburg in Germany, is to hold 51% of the shares while Melbourne-based AAW Global is to hold 49%.
According to a public statement on behalf of the new entity, the business is to comprise “the transportation of chemical products, foodstuffs including wine, milk products and cryogenically liquefied gases”.
In addition, HLA is expected to offer the rental of tank containers and intermediate bulk containers.
According to the statement, the Deep Sea business unit of HOYER has operated in Australia for the past 20 years in association with AAW Global Logistics.
Internationally aligned overseas activities are to continue to be operated by HOYER Global Agency Australia.
Director Deep Sea of the HOYER Group and director of HOYER Logistics Australia, Michael Loscalzo, said they valued AAW Global Logistics as a “strong, dependable partner”.
“Consistent further expansion of our presence in Australia through HOYER Logistics Australia is therefore only a logical step in which HOYER brings know-how and equipment to the joint venture and AAW Global Logistics has optimum networking in the domestic market,” Mr Loscalzo said.
AAW Global Logistics managing director, Barry Misiurak, said the long-standing collaboration with HOYER had led to strong brand awareness in Australia.
“As part of HOYER Logistics Australia, we look forward to enlarging the extensive range of domestic service provisions in the bulk logistics area,” Mr Misiurak said.
The AAW Global Logistics group of companies has traded in Australia for 35 years and has 200 employees working in ten offices.
