Monaghan Logistics to downsize fleet after contract ends

Mildura-based Monaghan Logistics is “transitioning” to a smaller operation with a major end-of-contract dispersal sale next month.

A slew of Monaghan’s prime movers, tilt trays, tipping trailers, step deck widening trailers, and other assets have been added to Ritchie Bros. National Unreserved Auction on October 12-13.

Big Rigs has approached director Gary Monaghan for comment.

“I would like to thank Ritchie Bros. for their help facilitating our transition to a smaller operation,” said Monaghan in a media release from Ritchie Bros.

Ritchie Bros. territory manager Sam Cust added: “We feel privileged to have been given the opportunity to manage this end-of-contract dispersal for Monaghan Logistics. Gary has purchased gear through our auctions previously and through those positive experiences has entrusted us with his downsizing plans.

“With a commitment to our customers we’re confident the unreserved auction will bring strong interest given the presentation and service history of the fleet, and the long wait times for new machinery.”
