Tapper Transport Purchases Priority Logistics
Tapper Transport Limited today announced the purchase of Priority Logistics Limited effective from 1 July 2013.
Priority Logistics is a transport and logistics company, owned by Aaron Forster, and based in Mount Maunganui. The Company specialises in container transport, devanning, storage, and cartage of bulk liquids, and operates a freight distribution company, ATL Freight Limited.
Tapper Transport Limited, the largest container operator in Auckland, has purchased Priority Logistics to establish a base in the Bay of Plenty and expand their container and cross-docking operations.
Andrew Scott, Director of Tapper Transport, said the opportunity to purchase a successful transport and logistics company in Mount Maunganui will enable Tapper Transport to serve the growing container market in Tauranga.
Aaron Forster, Managing Director of Priority Logistics, said there was a good fit between Tapper Transport and Priority Logistics, and he is looking forward to offering his current customers the benefits of the extra resources made available with the new owner.
I can see increasing growth prospects for the company in container devanning, cross-docking and bulk liquids transportation in the Bay of Plenty / Waikato / Auckland regions. Aaron also acknowledges the solid crew of Priority and ATL who can take pride in building a company that is an attractive acquisition for a market leader like Tapper Transport.
