Eades Transport and Adelaide Refrigerated have undergone a merger.
The merger will form AR Logistics and expand services and capabilities of the two former entities across the country.
“Merging Eades Transport and Adelaide Refrigerated Pty Ltd to form AR Logistics is a significant milestone for the business,” the company said in statement.
“Combining two successful freight companies will give our customers more access to carriers across Australia,” continued the statement.
In recent times, Eades Transport had grown its national reach through its association with Primary Connect, for whom it has been a carrier partner since 2015.
Twenty prime movers will be consigned for auction as part of an ongoing fleet adjustment as the new company finds its feet.
The merger of the South Australian companies is expected to bolster the footprint of the new business with its geographic advantage as a cold carrier already established on daily runs between Perth and Melbourne.
It also services Sydney and runs B-doubles and roadtrains.
