Maturing freight carrier, Hawk Logistics, has celebrated several major milestones to cap off a busy past financial year.

Significantly expanding its footprint in South Australia with the acquisition of AR Logistics, the company has added 100 additional pieces of equipment, a 14 dock coldstore and a new truck depot with dedicated fleet workshop.

The employee pool was also bolstered with over 40 new staff who came across with the acquisition.

Two strategic locations were also secured in Adelaide and Melbourne, combined they cover 77,000m².

Hawk Logistics said it plans on constructing brand new head offices, depots, and coldstores in each state.

The truck fleet expanded with the delivery of 19 brand new prime movers and 26 trailers through key partners Vawdrey Australia, FTE, and PACCAR Australia.

Hawk Logistics confirmed it had, in addition, an order pipeline of 35 new trucks, 12 sets of roadtrains, and 12 B-doubles.

Most of this coincided with a rebrand and new website launch which the company said had strengthened its market.

“We have secured significant new contracts and further strengthened our existing customer partnerships, all of which have committed to long-term, five-year agreements,” the company said in an online statement.

“This demonstrates the mutual trust and commitment between us and our partners.”

Having continued to expand its service offering, Hawk Logistics has established a new depot in Tamworth bringing its facilities to a total of nine locations across Australia.

The company also made announcements around its in-house systems and commitments to sustainability.

“We’ve embarked on the journey to develop our very own Transportation Management System, aiming for enhanced operational efficiency and service quality,” the company said.

“We are committed to sustainability, implementing eco-friendly practices across our operations to reduce our carbon footprint and promote a greener future.”
