New name for logistics company
TIL Logistics Group has welcomed in a new era for the company after rebranding as Move Logistics Group.
Founded as a regional transport company in 1869, it has grown into one of the country’s largest freight and logistics providers. It offers services across five divisions – freight, logistics and warehousing, fuel, international, and specialist lifting and transport.
Trevor Janes, chairman of Move Logistics, says each of these divisions will operate under the new brand.
“Our customers are increasingly wanting an end-to-end supply chain solution which we can provide with our nationwide network and range of services,” he explains.
“It makes sense to bring our brands and businesses together under one banner. This unified approach and a more united brand presence will make it easier for us to be seen transport and logistics solutions.
“Apart from the name change, it is business as usual – we will be providing the same great services our customers have become accustomed to, from the same great people.”
At the same time, Chris Dunphy has become an executive director and is essentially leading the business while it seeks a replacement for Alan Pearson, who resigned as chief executive this month.
The company says the new name captures the essence of what it offers and builds on the heritage of the past to “move ahead” as it looks to become the leading transport and logistics provider.
Janes adds: “We are also investigating alternative fuels such as hydrogen, are piloting an electric truck on our Auckland metro route and are investing in new trucks which use advanced diesel engine technologies to reduce emissions and in-cab technology to ensure the best possible driver behaviour – another positive and important factor in lowering fuel consumption and emissions.”
The name change will take effect on the NZX from August 4, 2021
